9-11-2010

Part 1:

This is now the second time in this household that we have greeted September 11 with celebration.

Joy's last observed seizure occurred on September 11, 2008. Two years ago to this day. Hosanna in excelsis! (a cry of praise, and of ongoing need for God's blessing)

Part 2:

Two texts for your consideration, given the other anniversary-meaning of September 11.

From the New International Version of the Holy Bible,
Micah Chapter 6 Verse 8:
He has showed you, O man, what is good.
And what does the LORD require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.

From the Shakir translation of the Holy Qur'an,
Chapter 7 Verse 199:
Take to forgiveness and enjoin good and turn aside from the ignorant.

Peace.
