I Will Remember You

I Will Remember You

by Sarah McLachlan

I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don’t let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

I’m so tired but I can’t sleep
Standin’ on the edge of something much
too deep
It’s funny how we feel so much but we
cannot say a word
Though we are screaming inside oh
We can’t be heard

I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don’t let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

I’m so afraid to love you, but more afraid to
lose
Clinging to a past that doesn’t let me
choose
But once there was a darkness, deep and
endless night
You gave me everything you had, oh you
gave me light

And I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don’t let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don’t let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

When God is Everything

This is for my friend t.  Remember 911? I do. I was getting ready for work. I turned on the tv and saw the Towers go down.  Speechless. But yet nothing compared to what my friend t went through that day.  She was there that day – working. She survived. But her sister did not. T told me she is going to the dedication for the new museum honoring the victims of 911.  I have looked at the pictures and it still breaks my heart.

We met on a Christian Songwriting website.  Her courage is amazing. She is one of the women who I trust and I have shared so much life with over the past year – the good, the bad, and the ugly.  And yet I know she loves me, as I love her. We laugh and joke about getting older, life over 50, and well lots more stuff I can’t say, but she never ceases to amaze me.  God has woken her up at night to pray for me and my family, and He has woken me up to pray for her and her family. T and her husband have since adopted two children.

I don’t know if I would have made it this last year without her. She loves me and doesn’t judge me.  She listens, she shares the Word, and what God has told her. I can share my hurts, my shortcomings, and never once has she pointed a finger at me in judgement. We all have stuff. We all need love and grace. We all need mercy, and hope. And I don’t even know what she looks like! (Come on t…a pic?).

T has helped to restore, helped to renew and rebuild a new life – In me and others. She truly has been a “Repairer of the Breach” in my life and in her friends and families lives. She shows me Jesus lives and she gives me hope to keep trying when I would rather just quit. She magnifies the good, and helps me look at Jesus instead of my storms. She is a living testimony – of the goodness of God and the miraculous strength the Jesus Christ provides.

And, she is an amazing Christian Songwriter and Vocalist! I know – right!

We haven’t met – yet…

But I look forward to the day we can see each other face to face!

Here is t’s bio from CCMNI:

I am…
A Songwriter
(If other, please explain)
Christian Songwriter

What style of music do you sing or write?
AC (Adult Contemporary), INSPO (Inspirational), ROCK

Feel free to tell us more about yourself. We want to know!

I am a 09/11 survivor who watched as the second plane hit WTC-2. My family is saved and Spirit-filled. My sister and I had never been separated before (38 years together). We lived in the same apt. building, worked in the same industry, even wore the same colors or clothes when we went to work, unbeknownst to both of us. She loved my husband and my brother and mother. Our dad had died of cancer when we were in college (yes the same school). Our family became very tight knit after Dad died. And we all enjoyed one another. A day never went by when Mary Ellen (my sister) and I didn’t laugh or sing together.

Anyway, she was instantaneously cremated We’ve never found any part of her. I witnessed way more than anyone would be prepared for, when just being at work on a gorgeous Tuesday morning in September. I worked next to WTC-1. Suffice it to say, I ended up with many health issues (considered a first responder because I inhaled the noxious toxic gas) and PTSD. BUT I’M HERE TO TELL YOU GOD NEVER LET GO OF ME!!! He healed me from many illnesses. While my heart is forever broken, it’s OK. Jesus is with me and mine. And Mary Ellen is with Jesus!

Part of the healing story took me back to one of my loves, writing music. I am currently unemployed and living in State College, PA ( Penn State), thus the need to sell my music. My husband has a job here, I watch over my mother here, and we are raising two beautiful children the Lord has allowed us to adopt as our own. I still have my fantastic brother, Joe, who works part-time in Manhattan (will always love that town) and here. He is a gifted writer and is healed to the point that he can begin his writing again. GOD IS GOOD. It is the fallen world, in which we live, that is bad. Bad things happen every moment of every day. We, as the church, must use what satan uses to destroy our souls, as the crutch to take to the Throne Room. Because without HIS grace we cannot stand. But with HIS grace we dance; because we are more than conquerors through Christ our Lord. The beauty of all of the past is that it emptied me of everything, so that all I had was HIM, and THAT IS EVERYTHING.

God Bless you and thank you for taking the time to read this narrative.

Bob, my husband, and I have worked for EarthCam, the Company that made this awesome video-the construction of the 911 museum…enjoy!

T has not only overcome, but she sings and gives all of us strength.  She recently gathered many musicians and engineers from around the country to give God praise.  Listen to her sing-she has the voice of an Angel! Love u t, d.

House of Cards – The Harbinger II

I came across this video today from Jonathan Cahn.  America is crumbling.  Our government is closed – shut down. We have cut GOD out of our schools, our government, and our finances.  The following are my views – my opinions. Take it or leave it.

The bricks have fallen – the sycamore has fallen down – a sign of judgement.  America is being uprooted. 

Isaiah 9:10 NKJV

“The bricks have fallen down,
But we will rebuild with hewn stones;
The sycamores are cut down,
But we will replace them with cedars.”

“WE WILL REBUILD” – the words our President used in his first speech to Congress.  A Nation in Defiance of God. Legalizing Gay marriage, killing our children with abortions everyday, and building golden calves.

“Unless the Lord builds the house,
They labor in vain who build it;
Unless the Lord guards the city,
The watchman stays awake in vain.” (Psalm 127:1 NKJV)

This is now at the End of Wall Street – a dead sycamore tree.

 

Below is the ‘symbol’ that we have put in lower Manhattan to represent Wall Street. Wow, talk about a nation abandoning God. Please pray for a Spirit of Repentance to come to our country.

7000 lbs of Bronze – didn’t we have a problem with golden calves and idols?

 

If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

(2 CHRONICLES 7:14  NKJV)

Ready for the ACTS Church?  The Revival is coming! There will be judgement and revival. Messiah will come when there is a falling away.  Get ready for Israel to come to Jesus! The way it began will be the way it will end.  Jesus is the alpha and the omega – the beginning and the end.   The church is coming back to Jerusalem, not Rome.

We are called to be radical. Let us enlarge our consecration to Him.

If we get serious with God, He will get serious with us.

Let us grow up and put away foolish things.

The world is waiting.

Prepare the way of the Lord.

When the night gets darker – let us shine brighter!

Arise people of God to your calling! Let us rise for such a time as this!
