Meet Me In the Stairwell(2nd Friday post)

MEET ME IN THE STAIRWELL. This is very good, I hope you read the entire poem.


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 know 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.


During the next 60 seconds, stop whatever you are
doing, and take this opportunity. (Literally it
is only 1 minute.) All you have to do is the

Stop and think and appreciate God's power
in your life, for doing what you know is pleasing to
Him. If you are not ashamed to do this, follow the
instructions. Jesus said, 'If you are ashamed of Me, I will be
ashamed of you before My Father'

If you are not ashamed, copy and send this message... only
if you believe. 'Yes, I love my God. He is my
fountain of Life and My Savior. He Keeps me going day and
night. Without Him, I am no one. But with Him, I can do
everything. Christ is my strength.'

Beautiful. We lost a very close friend on Sept. 11. He was on one of the upper floors, and there was no way out for him. He had two young children and a wife. When we visited the site in NY, my husband broke down when we found his name on the memorial. It made the loss that much more real.

Thank you for sharing this.

They don't work! They'll let you get an sizegenetics, but that is about all, and obtaining an sizegenetics has never been a problem for me, so the pump was simply a waste of money.But what about penis sizegenetics sizegenetics and lotions? Forget about them! How could any pill or lotion give you a bigger penis? Now, when makers of Viagra brought out a penis sizegenetics pill, I should be tempted to give it a try, but otherwise, no thank you.In line with this man's experience, and my own opinion currently being a researcher and reviewer in that field, when you wish a bigger penis, you want to be prepared to work for it.
