faithful in times of calm

 when I saw the photo above here this morning. it took my breathe away. I am in awe of the magnitude of this day and the beauty of this world.

I've made a habit of revisiting this article every year around this time. it reminds me of God's presence in my life and inspires to reflect on my relationship with him.

 "Our Father’s commitment to us, His children, is unwavering. Indeed He softens the winters of our lives, but He also brightens our summers. Whether it is the best of times or the worst, He is with us. He has promised us that this will never change."

I cannot imagine life without purpose... divine purpose. to me they are hand in hand. it gives me peace to know that the things that can't be unexplained (good and bad) that happen in this life are not random. there is  purpose a reason to all we experience here guided by the unconditional love of God.

"Destruction allows us to rebuild our lives in the way He teaches us, and to become something different than we were."

this knowledge allows me to carry on through the storms and remain faithful in times of calm. walking into work today watching the city buzz around me made my heart ache. today especially I'm carrying a special prayer for those who are victims of terrorism, discrimination, abuse, and heartache.

{this is an eye opening account from a WTC survivor. it never occurred to me all the work that had to be done to keep companies running ect. I considered about all the reconstruction and searching, but hadn't thought about trying to account for all your employees. or being forced to carrying on like this man was. tears rolled down my cheeks when he spoke of the firefighters who passed him the stair well on the way up. endless amount of gratitude for those brave souls}
