I remember exactly where I was 10 years ago today.
I was engaged to Mark and he was deployed with the US Navy to Italy.
I was teaching at a school in Jacksonville, FL. Our secretary came into my classroom, in the middle of a lesson and said, "I guess your fiance' will be going to war now." Since, I hadn't seen or heard anything being in a class full of 1st graders, this statement had me totally confused. She then went on to explain what had happened.
My intial reaction was one of fear and shock - like many others.
Today, I want to remember all those who were involved - praying for families who lost loved ones and praying even for those involved.
But, the thing I want to remember most is that the God I serve is in control - no matter how bad things may seem or how confusing things are or how much they don't make sense - He's got the whole world in His Hands! I want to remember to trust in Jesus - my Savior, my Redeemer, my Rock!
