‘MEET ME IN THE STAIRWELL’
You say you will never forget where you were when
you heard the news On September 11, 2001.
Neither will I.
I was on the 110th floor in a smoke filled room
with a man who called his wife to say ‘Good-Bye.’ I
held his fingers steady as he dialed. I gave him the
peace to say, ‘Honey, I am not going to make it, but it
is OK..I am ready to go.’
I was with his wife when he called as she fed
breakfast to their children. I held her up as she
tried to understand his words and as she realized
he wasn’t coming home that night.
I was in the stairwell of the 23rd floor when a
woman cried out to Me for help. ‘I have been
knocking on the door of your heart for 50 years!’ I said.
‘Of course I will show you the way home – only
believe in Me now.’
I was at the base of the building with the Priest
ministering to the injured and devastated souls.
I took him home to tend to his Flock in Heaven. He
heard my voice and answered.
I was on all four of those planes, in every seat,
with every prayer. I was with the crew as they
were overtaken. I was in the very hearts of the
believers there, comforting and assuring them that their
faith has saved them.
I was in Texas , Virginia , California , Michigan , Afghanistan .
I was standing next to you when you heard the terrible news.
Did you sense Me?
I want you to know that I saw every face. I knew
every name – though not all knew Me. Some met Me
for the first time on the 86th floor.
Some sought Me with their last breath.
Some couldn’t hear Me calling to them through the
smoke and flames; ‘Come to Me… this way… take
my hand.’ Some chose, for the final time, to ignore Me.
But, I was there.
I did not place you in the Tower that day. You
may not know why, but I do. However, if you were
there in that explosive moment in time, would you have
reached for Me?
Sept. 11, 2001, was not the end of the journey
for you. But someday your journey will end. And I
will be there for you as well. Seek Me now while I may
be found. Then, at any moment, you know you are
‘ready to go.’
I will be in the stairwell of your final moments.

Ever feel like you are being raped? Over and over again? That’s exactly what this administration, with the aid of the minions in Congress, is doing. And in answer to your question…..YES, I DO know what it’s like.

And I bought myself a new toy. Well, actually, I traded in an ‘old’ toy for a new one, but that’s neither here nor there. I got tired of that little sucker biting me, so traded up for a larger one.
Kahr cw40. I like how it feels. Not to worry, did a lot of talking, a lot of searching, etc., so I guess you could say I did my homework. Now, all I have to do is stay in town long enough to take it out to the range, and see how it goes. The best part?
These are the people who made sure Barack Hussein Obama is now residing in the White House. Once again, I will repeat: A man is known by the company he keeps! Interesting company there BO! REAL interesting.

I did not watch Obama’s speech last night. I had better things to do, like navel gazing. It was a lot more informative as evidenced from the text!
Madame Speaker, Vice President Biden, Members of Congress, and the American people:
Not “my fellow Americans”? Why didn’t he just say “my subjects”?
I did hear about Rep Joe Wilson‘s outburst. Heh. Calling a spade a spade! I also heard he called the White House to apologize for said outburst. I’m seriously hoping he did NOT apologize for speaking the truth, just his bad manners. Seems his site has quite a bit of traffic this morning too.
Due to exceptionally high traffic, this site is temporarily unavailable.
Please come back shortly.
I wouldn’t mind sending him an email myself, thanking him for saying what a great many of us have been saying for 9 months now.
One more good reason for not watching the speech, the man has not learned a dadburn thing. He is oblivious to the will of the people, or just flat doesn’t give a happy crap. Either way, he is NOT the ‘change’ most folks were hoping for when they cast their vote. Well, unless they are avowed socialists.
(Seriously, I watched a movie I had DVR’d. Pretty good too. The Secret Life of Bees. I’m told the book was even better. Guess I’ll have to get that one to add to my pile of books that must be read. )
