So as we all know, today is September 11th. A day that is truly somber in the U.S. My heart goes out to all the families who lost loved ones on that day. I know there is no way that I can really relate but I want to offer you my love and support. I also want you to know that God is with you always. He will guide you and take care of you! A scripture that always helps me cope is

REVELATION 21:4, And He will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and Death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be no more. The former things have passed away.

Today, I started my day with a run. I reflected the entire time on life and how lucky we are to be alive. It is so important to wake up everyday and love your family and friends. Tell them how much you appreciate them and love them. Hug them, spend time with them. And, really do this. Don’t just be in a room with them. Spend time with them! That means being less conscious of all our technology and more conscious of moments together! I know this is hard. Even  I falter on this sometimes. (Especially, because I run a business.) But you have to fight the urge, because essentially our lives are not guaranteed.

We must also live according to God. We should live to please him and in a fashion that would make him proud. That means loving ALL of our brothers and sisters worldwide and offering support to those around us! Nothing is ever gained in hate and we must set the example.

Again, my heart goes out to those family and friends who lost loved ones. My hope is that you can find comfort in God and the outpouring of love!

XOXO,
