Alan Jackson-Where Were You When the World Stopped Turning

I wanted to post this today for 9-11 and for my Pink Saturday post.  This song meant  a lot to me during 9-11 because in the song he says "Did you call up your mother and tell her you love her? Did you dust off that bible at home?" I remember talking to my mother after the events of 9-11. Two months and five days later I lost my mother. I did not have to dust off my bible but I found these words to be comforting than and moreso today:

"If my people who call on my name will humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and forgive their sin and heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14

I think we need to rethink our world because after 9-11 we all fell back into that same old same old.  On a small political note I must say anyone who calls themselves a man of God would not want to fuel the fire that already is burning in this sickening politically correct world of ours. Enough said .

Agreed. I never understand how people's arrogance and ego allows them to behave in a manner that HURTS ANYONE. Even in the smallest ways people can cause detremental pain to another. Hugs to you. Tammy

I agree with you and our country has got to put a stop to terrorism which is just cowardice and ignorance and pure hate just for the sake of hating. I'll always remember.

Thank you ANNe for stopping by, Where were I? I went downstairs to watch my favorite program. I was sitting down in front of the tv waiting for my show to come on and there is a "Special Reports from Foxchannel". and there it is the second airplane hit the second tower. I was terrified as my parents were. I didn't have to work that day and the next. Stayed home until further notice.
Yes, I love this song and I also remember Alan Jackson singing it on national tv at the CMA"S award. I also going to post this video on my FB. Thanks for sharing.
May God bless you and yours.

You are right the world needs a good shaking again but not in this manner. It is a shame how soon we forget that we need to serve the same God each day not just at a disaster. Nice post and I love Alan Jackson.

Happy Pink Saturday Anne Sweetie...
Oh what a beautiful tribute today. I love your writing today sweetie. Isn't this song the MOST beautiful thing ever? I love it's memory for you. How you shared with your precious Moma. It is your song together.

Thank you also for quoting Chronicles 7:14. A powerful verse, so powerful.

I agree without judging anyone, that it is not fitting of a man of God. So sad right before this anniversary of Sept. 11.

Thank you again for the beautiful share sweet friend. I so love to read your writes. They make my heart so happy. You write from your very soul.

Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Anne - it' true, we've fallen back into that old complacency and we certainly need to pray for our country. We must never forget those who died that day in a senseless act of violence.

I wish we could have kept that same feeling of togetherness we had after 9/11. It's a shame it takes such a catastrophe to bring people to their knees and to rely on God. And then most people just settle back into the lives as if nothing had happened. That scripture from 2 Chronicles has always meant so much to me. We definitely need Him to heal our land.

Just now getting around to the PS posts. Hope you had a great day.

There is far too much hatred in the world today - I'm not sure why or what it is all about - we are all flawed humans - struggling to "get through" life the best we can with what we have and get.

The golden rule should be forefront in all of our minds.
