We MUST remember

I cannot come up with the words to convey my sadness over the events of Sept. 11, 2001.  America was under attack from Islamists (and we still are at war with Al Qaeda and other Islamists who want to destroy America,  Christians, and Israel).

Only through the grace of God that more were not killed. My prayer is that we Christians will stand firm for God and pray for this nation for repentance and salvation. Sadly the attackers now have more rights than Christians. 

In honor of this day in history I want to thank those firefighters, policemen, and others who worked so hard trying to save people in the Twin Towers and afterwards looking for survivors then bodies.  Many died in that attempt, many are sick from the dust and chemicals of the fallen buildings, and many are still alive who probably relive that day and weeks afterwards to this day.  And for the families of those killed by the terrorists, my prayers are with you all.

The great image of Miss Liberty is a very old TAC stamp called Liberty.  The text is from the Bless Your Heart set.  Did you notice my blue & white striped floss?  It is regular white scrappers floss that I colored with Copic marker B37.

How cool is that!!  I colored it to match the dark blue layers. I did it by using my metal ruler wrapped in masking/painters tape.  I wrapped the floss around it then marked it with the Copic.  Voila!

I pray for this nation daily and am saddened to see how much "we" have turned away from our great heritage in the name of "political correctness" and sin. This nation was founded by those wanting to worship God without interference of government and more.  Now people don't want God in their lives. We are in the last days according to the Bible and Jesus is coming soon to take His people out before He begins His great judgement.  Come, Lord Jesus, come quickly. Amen.

Yesterday everywhere I went I saw flags. We WILL never forget. Your card is beautiful and I've been making custom colored twine too (just not with my precious Copics, uses too much ink lol). I've a 36-pen set of Sharpies and they work great!
