We'll Always Remember 9/11

In memory of 9/11/01.  I wrote this song in 2011 on the 10th Anniversary of 9/11.  After listening to many documentaries about people who survived that fateful day, one thing I heard over and over was, "We just don't want anyone to ever forget."  And I was so baffled by that statement.  In my mind was "How could they think that we would ever forget?  We will ALWAYS remember 9/11."  And from that statement, the lyrics to this song came as I began to think - That's the day a nation came to pray, as many souls went home to stay, the day a nation turned to God to find a hope in all the loss.

I also heard a statement from one survior who said "Those on the outside only saw the bad of 9/11.  But those of us on the inside saw the good. People helping people." 
How very true and how very powerful.

My heart and prayers are with all those who lived through that day, and for everyone who lost someone dear to them.  May God's everlasting Love and Comfort always  be with you.

"Promises"

I wrote this song for my husband for our 20 year Anniversary, which we just celebrated on June 22, 2015’.  Gene has literally shown me what it means to love someone more than yourself and to give with your whole heart and soul.   It makes me want to be a better wife and to give to him as much as he gives to me.   Not because I owe him for all that he does, but because I want to be that kind of servant in our marriage just as he is to me.   Nothing I do for him compares to all that he does, which is why I write “I may never understand why you chose to love me, and I never saw what you saw in me.”   But I do plan to keep the promises I made, and to do my best to serve him as well as he has served me for 20 plus years.   I thank God for Gene every single day.   I am blessed more than I deserve.   And I am thankful.
