Meet Me In The Stairwell








 I stumble upon a blogsite (clinicallyclueless.blogspot) and found this youtube slideshow and the notes about the 911 tragedy. As the slides roll on, it is as if God is talking to whomever watches, hears and  reads it..



'MEET ME IN THE STAIRWELL'
("I WAS THERE") 

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 , Virginia , California , Michigan , Afghanistan.
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... this way... 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?
Sept. 11, 2001, was not the end of the journey for you.
But someday your journey will end.
And Iwill be there for you as well.
Seek Me now while I maybe found.
Then, at any moment, you know you are'ready to go.'
I will be in the stairwell of your final moments.
~God~
