"MEET ME IN THE STAIRWELL"
Author Unknown


     
You say you will never forget where
 you were when you  heard the news
 On September 11, 2001.  
 Neither will I.
           
 I was on the 110th floor in a smoke
 filled room with a man who called his
 wife to say   "Good-Bye." I held
 his fingers steady as he dialed. I
 gave him the peace to say,
"Honey, I am not going to make
 it, but it is  OK...I am ready to go."
             
 I was with his wife when he called as
 she fed  breakfast to their children. I held
 her up as she tried to understand his words
and as she realized he wasn't coming home
that night.
     
 I was in the stairwell of the 23rd
 floor when a woman cried out to Me
 for help. "I have been knocking
 on the door of your heart for 50
 years!" I said. "Of course I will show
 you the way home -only believe in
 Me now."
     
 I was at the base of the building with
 the Priest ministering to the injured and
 devastated souls. I took him home to
 tend to his Flock in Heaven. He heard
 my voice and answered.
      
 I was on all four of those planes, in
 every seat, with every prayer. I was
 with the crew as they were overtaken.
 I was in the very hearts of the believers
 there, comforting and assuring them
 that their faith has saved them.
     
 I was in Texas, Kansas, London. I was
 standing next to you when you heard the
 terrible news. Did you sense Me?
     
 I want you to know that I saw every
 face. I knew every name - though not all
 know Me.  Some met Me for the first time
 on the 86th floor.
     
 Some sought Me with their last breath.
 Some couldn't hear Me calling to them
 through the smoke and flames; "Come to Me...
 take my   hand." Some chose, for the final time,
 to ignore Me.  But, I was there.
     
 I did not place you in the Tower that
 day. You may not know why, but I do.
 However, if you were there in
 that explosive moment in time, would
 you have reached for Me?
     
 September 11, 2001 was not the end of
 the journey for you. But someday your
 journey will end. And I will
 be there for you as well. Seek Me now
 while I may be found. Then, at any
 moment, you know you are "ready to
 go."
     
 I will be in the stairwell of your
 final moments.

 God
