September 11 .. I remember that day clearly .. I was standing in the kitchen at Hibiscus .. it was slow that morning .. very still and quiet .. we were in the process of restoring Bert’s Barn and our friend and carpenter .. Jeff .. had just walked in to get a coffee before starting his days work when the phone rang .. it was my friend .. Brenda .. crying in disbelief as to what she was watching on the television .. immediately Jeff and I ran into the Art Deco room to tune in on for ourselves .. as we stood there and watched in tears .. no words came .. it was a sad day for America ..
As the days and months passed it became so evident just how much .. God had designed our lives to be a community project .. for you see friends .. we need the help of each other in our lives to become the people He has created us to be .. for .. when our heart is breaking and our eyes are blinded by grief .. we need other more than ever .. the people He has placed in our lives .. they can help us see things we could not see by ourselves .. these people .. they can help us remember His goodness when we are simply tempted to forget .. these people .. they will exercise faith for us .. when our faith is weak .. these people .. will bring His very comfort to us when we are in despair .. and .. these people .. will gently warn us when we are tempted to get off track .. no .. we do not ever have to go through sadness alone .. for .. we have God .. and .. we have each other .. we are all His helpers .. we are to look out for each other .. be patient with one another .. for we know in our heart .. that even in the darkest of moments in our life .. we can always find .. clear and obvious signs of His presence and love .. and for this .. we are thankful .. maybe not for what we are going through .. but always .. for what He gives us to sustain us .. through our grief .. so .. we search for those lights of goodness .. they are always there .. even in the darkest moments of time .. we must pay attention to good things He is doing .. for it is then .. our grief .. will be mixed with heartfelt gratitude .. oh yeah .. Love Wins Period.
