On that September Day

Everyone is posting their Sept 11 story all over Facebook, therefore I thought I would too. Those who know me are prob sick of hearing mine so I will sum it up, this time, only because I now think it is unpatriotic not to tell your story on this day, regardless how many times you have shared it or how long it has been.

The thing is, it really doesn't matter where I was or what I was doing or even who I was with. The day itself has nothing to do with me at all but has everything to do with my family and the way we were living our lives.

For all the tears that I shed that day I still shed today, I still become numb and speechless when I look at the tragic photos or even watch the breath taking videos but today, and many days before this, my heart skips differently. It now skips to a beat that only God can provide the rhythm for, a beat and a rhythm that allows my soul to see the tragedy of this unforgettable day in a different light.

For the Lord says in Isaiah;
Isaiah 41:10
"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."

And that is exactly what He said to us on that September Day. He showed us the path in which He developed for us (my hubs and I), He shown the light on the purpose for my hubs and He told me not to fear. He told me to hold on tight, the path was going to get bumpy but just like everything else it is all for good reasoning....HIS GLORY.

Romans 5:3-5
"Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us." 

September 11, 2001 my hubs was searching for his calling, I was confused about where I was and our first born was yet a year old. Since then the devil has tried to intervene many of times causing us to experience our first spiritual warfare, but with each bump Gods Glory prevailed and His love never ran out. Today my hubs is a Firefighter/EMT on track to his paramedics (and then some), I am fully aware of my purpose in life, we have 3 beautiful children and are raising them in a healthy environment surrounded by positive influences.

Philippians 4:13 
"I can do everything through him who gives me strength."

As horrible as that day was, I can't imagine it not happening. Not for the very reason of selfishness for my family and I but for the strength of this country and what it has become all because of the ones who gave it all. Heroes were born in places we knew nothing about, we started to recognize faces of people we never knew existed and America banded together, for one small moment in time, we all shared the very day we will never forget! Yet it is a day we pray never happens again!

I Am Back!

Just when you thought it was over, you turn a corner and see me standing there. Yes I am back and blogging again.....

As I shared in my "final" post, I wasn't following the savings steps I was preaching therefore felt guilty and convicted of being someone I was not....the very thing I hated about blogging all together. However over the past few months I have come to realize, that Prudent Wisdom isn't about practicing what I preach.

Being Prudent is to be careful and practical, a way of practicing common sense....I was reaching too high.

And Wisdom is to utilize knowledge, experience and understanding.....I may not be the wisest of all fools but I do have the ability to think.

Together Prudent Wisdom is nothing more than one carefully traveling through the journeys of life and sharing each experience in the search of understanding. Whether it be through clipping coupons or pinching pennies being prudent is the way I survive.

So here I stand, well actually sit with a k…

I Tweeted in Church

OOPS!

No really it was the silent type so no reason form me to excuse myself or be embarrassed.

However I did blush a little when the quest pastor favorited my tweet.....

Yes you read that right "the quest pastor favorited my tweet"

But did he realize I tweeted while he was preaching?

I am not sure...

Maybe that's why he liked it??

Or maybe, it was his way of letting me know I was busted....

Which brings the question;

Is tweeting in Church considered rude?

What do you think?
