"Scripture is a paradise of trees of life which brings forth fruit every month, and the leaves for medicine. It is a shower of heavenly bread and a cellar full of oil vessels whereby all our necessities may be provided. It is a pantry of wholesome food against mouldy traditions,a pharmacist's shop against heresies; a code of profitable laws against rebellious spirit; a treasure of costly jewels against beggarly rudiments, a foundation of most pure water springing up into everlasting life".
...taken from the introduction to the reader, from the King Kames Version of the Bible in the year of our Lord 1611

We have gone on with our lives, but many are still grieving over their lost loved ones. It has been 8 years, but for many it feels like yesterday.Let's not forget to pray for these families that no longer have a Father or Mother or child because of the destruction of 9/11. May the Lord be their Strength and Comforter, may they serve Him with a Renewed Strength! Check out my slide show on Flight 93 at the bottom of my site.

"The stone is only a stone until its heart is broken and the air has a chance to get in. The Christian convert is only a principle until he lets God have His way with him: break his heart, if that has to be! Anything, in order to rip open the hardness and let God in! When the air has filled the fissures, then the stone is no longer a pebble.It is a gem, a precious opal, a stone of fire." ~Isobel Kuhn
