This is a great message from my good friend and author, DiAne Gates, especially today as we remember 9-11-2001.
MOVING THE ANCIENT BOUNDARIES
A praise and glory to our Sovereign God and our Lord Jesus Christ in the midst of our tearful remembering.
On the morning of September 11, 2001, I lived in Army housing at Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas, taking care of my two grandchildren…one a year old, the other five, and my son-in-law. Our daughter…their mother…SIL’s wife, had suddenly passed away in February of that year.
While getting the five-year-old ready for kindergarten, I remember my son-in-law shouting “get to the living room…NOW!” I remember seeing the burning building, then the second plane crashed, and the third…and the horror continued! The cries. And like you, my heart filled with fear. Fear for all the men and women surrounding me that I knew would be called into action. Fear for their children…for my children…both son and son-in-law were military…and fear for our nation.
But God always has a purpose and a plan…

Here’s something to think about. Could the hurricanes hitting the USA be the result of the USA pressuring Israel on a two-state solution?

Mockingbirds: Versatile Voices in Plain Plumage
Dr. James J. S. Johnson
Curse not the king, no not in thy thought; and curse not the rich in thy bedchamber: for a bird of the air shall carry the voice, and that which hath wings shall tell the matter. (Ecclesiastes 10:20)
King Solomon warned us! Some birds are like winged tape recorders, capable of imitating the speech of human voices, vocal calls of other birds, diverse sounds of construction equipment, and even the beeping noise of a clock alarm. Parrots are so famous for repeating human speech that we use the word “parrot” as a metaphoric verb, for repeating what someone else says.

I sang this last night as part of a men’s choir at my church last night. I am as gentile as can be, but the message of this hymn never fails to bring a tear to my eye, because I know the meaning of the message, and I know the main subject of the song – Emmanuel – God, the Creator, with us! Amen!
