20 Years… Reflection & Rememberance 🙏🏻 #neverforget

Its been 20 year since that horrific day!

• 2,977 Americans were Murdered!

• 343 Firefighters died saving others! Many that survived are dying from cancer now at an alarming rate! Thank a Firefighter today…

BUT – We survived! We united! We rebuilt!

#neverforget!

I remember that day and i remember this timeline. It was a day we can never forget!

Its been 20 years now. My wife was pregnant with our son when it happened. He is 19 now, working and going to school. Many of his peers don’t know much about what happened on 9/11! Watch the memorials with them today, they will be on ALL day! Talk about what happened that day & how it made you feel! We owe it to kids and we owe it to our fallen brothers and sisters to Never Forget! Lets reflect on the bravery of our first responders and say prayers for all the lives lost 🙏🏻 #neverforget !

We need to pull together again! Like we pulled together on 9/12! We rallied together, and we were stronger than we could have imagined! Prayers for our country and our countrymen today! 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

God Bless America! 🇺🇸

Sunday Reflections…

As I was sitting this morning writing My blog, my phone chirped… Text message. It was my cousin Kim. She lives along the gulf coast not too far from where the approaching Hurricane Ida is coming ashore. Outer bands of rain are already creating localized flash flooding and the winds are strong. She said they are going to ride it out, told me she loved me and asked for prayers 🙏🏻

Hurricanes bring heavy wind and floods so they are always a threat. But my cousin Kim and her brothers and sisters grew up down there and they have rode out many a storm.

That’s me in the redneck Santa hat with my sister and our Mobile Alabama cousins. We try to always get together around the holidays ❤️

So today I’m gonna say a special prayer for Kim and all the folks down on the Gulf Coast. Ida is coming and she’s bringing a mess with her 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

Your welcome to join me in saying a prayer for all the good folks down there as well 🙏🏻

“I have both the violent turbulence of the storm and the quiet promises of God in the storm. And what I must work to remember is that something is not necessarily stronger simply because it’s louder.”

Have a great Sunday afternoon ☀️

Ghost Town…

Social Distancing is apparently working now. I went to pick up a couple of things for family (curbside and click list only)… WOW! It’s like a ghost town out there. 

This is a Saturday at 11am! About 8 cars in this 200 acre parking lot! WOW!

Almost no cars on the road, except for big trucks! I guess the silver lining is that the stores will be able to get restocked now… 

Almost NO traffic! There are a few out on bikes or walking. Social Distancing is being taken seriously…

Please pray for the country! For all the folks that can’t work! And especially for all the people who have fallen ill to this terrible virus! 

We will get through this! Lets stay vigilant through this fight for our families and for each other! 

God Bless America!

Sunday Reflections…

Thinking about the Awesome power of Nature this morning. Hurricane Barry has come ashore and is flooding from the Gulf Coast to points north… Including our area in Tennessee over the next couple days. Batten down the hatches!

Prayers for the people in the path of this Hurricane.

 

There is no way to stop or reason with a Hurricane… But if anyone could, it would be Jimmy B. 😊 This is one of my favorites off A1A…

 

Have a blessed week 🙏🏻 And stay dry 💦🌂

Sunday Reflections…

Yesterday afternoon we went up to the river to look around at the flood. Many of the worst hit areas still aren’t accessible at all… But from what I saw, many have lost everything! Historic floods = Disaster!

Floods have devastated many areas up and down the TN River.

Below is a prayer I saw online about the flood and the flood victims. Our hopes and prayers are with the folks affected all up and down the river 🙏🏻

“Lord I pray your hand of safety and guidance upon all the victims of the regions under flood conditions. Bless these people Lord and keep them safe. Do not let the flood waters steal their lives. Drive back the floods to protect their homes and their precious animals”.

~ Amen 🙏🏻

 

The water has finally crested & will start to slowly recede now.

 

Have a blessed day,
