Sandi surprised me with a trip to New York two weekends ago for my birthday. I'd never been there before and was very excited. she asked me what i wanted to do and see. after thinking about all the food i had heard about in New York and voicing my desire to sample the many types of grinds there, i asked her if we could go and see the site where the world trade center once stood. she said, "Of course." here are some pictures i took in that solemn place.

needless to say it was a very heavy moment. we didn't stay very long, but it was long enough to be affected by soul piercing thoughts. may the LORD give peace and comfort to those who lost loved ones in this terrible tragedy. may he give us all hope and faith for the days and years to come.

"When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned."

Isaiah 43:2
