One of the things I want most in the world is to gain the spirit of gentleness.

A Day of Remembrance

Where were you five years ago today? So many people remember, all too well, where they were when they heard the news about the twin towers. I walked into my dad's office to say, "Good morning" to him. He handed me a news article he had printed out from the internet about the tragic story. Seeing that I still did not understand, he explained the situation. After that I don't remember much that happened since I was so young, but I doubt we had school that day. One thing that stands out in my mind was the amount of fear that another terrorist attack would happen. Might it even happen to my family?

And who knows...another attack could happen today, or tomorrow, or the next day, or the day after, etc. Yet we can't just worry our life away. If I died today I know where I'd be going and that gives me peace in an area where unbelievers often can't stand to even think about.

God is in control of everything including the length of each person's life so because of that a godly, courageous friend of mine stated, "I would rather die in God's will than live outside of His will."
