ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©

Hidden in the ashes, trampled by the steel,

Lay the sons and daughters of that day,

In the years that follow, our hearts may never heal,

We mourn their loss – We try to deal –

We turn to God and pray,

Freedom was taken, terror stole our soul,

But America was built for more than this,

Strong hearts united, with a mutual goal,

Rebuilding, renewing, restoring the mess,

This day is not forgotten. It’s seared upon our souls,

We put our faith in God’s eternal care,

We trust in His salvation, we know he mends the holes

That come from the destruction in the air,

Our hearts must stay united, no matter how we feel,

We look beyond the prejudice and fears,

Our only hope is Jesus, the only one who heals,

He erases all our sorrows and wipes away our tears.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

      Thank you, Joseph. The entire event was bittersweet, because we were once again drawn together as a nation – we respected our country, but still we remained watchful, suspicious and diligent. It should’ve been more of a wakeup call for us.

    I am sorry I am behind and missed this the day you wrote it, Kathy. Well said. Jesus is exactly the solution to the problem. The problem is sin, and Jesus is the cure.
