911 Angel

The brief change in America following the tragedy of 9/11/01 was profound. Suddenly, people were realizing the inappropriateness of the violence and sexuality in movies and on TV. Comedians who had previously made fun of people were now edifying them. The curbing of excessive celebration of entertainment as shown by the re-scheduling of the Emmy awards was refreshing. People were openly praying for our country and for one another. The American flag was being displayed everywhere.

I wanted to do a painting to commemorate all this. I knew I wanted to write on it the scripture that said: "For he shall give his angels charge over thee". So I created an angel dressed in red, white, and blue and holding the world. But I had momentarily forgotten exactly where the verse was located in the Bible. I looked it up and discovered it was part of one of my favorite psalms, not mentally registering its number at the time. I was very tempted to incorporate the verses surrounding it but somehow I limited myself to just the original scripture I had in mind.

people who know me, know that I’m the type of person who looks in the mirror and puts one more accessory on, while most people look in the mirror and take one thing off, so not elaborating with more verses was surprising---I got chills when I realized that the scripture I had been led not to add any verses to was Psalm 91.11. Truly this artwork must have been supernaturally inspired.

Hi my friends,
If I put in all the articles I wanted to share with you in this 911 issue of my newsletter it would be as thick as your Sunday newspaper. Since I didn't want to clog up your entire inbox ( after all you may be getting other very important e-mails today) :-), I created links for you to go to. Now I know many of you are leery to click on these links, but my editor assures me that they are all very, very safe and from my experience I vouch for that.....and that's the truth!!!! Therefore, I'm asking you all, please take the time to go to and read this weeks articles,,there are many up lifting stories I don't want you to miss! so just do it *** click it ! It's a safe thing to do!

Let us not forget
On September 11, please wear red, white and blue to work or school to show your support for those who lost their lives on 9~11~01 and to honor the heroes who worked to save them and the families left behind.

At noon your time on September 11, 2006, no matter where you are or what you are doing, stop, put your hand on your heart, and say the Pledge of Allegiance out loud or to yourself and say a prayer for our nation.

In addition, for those of us who drive to work, please drive with your headlights on and put those car flags back on the roof to also give honor and remembrance to those who perished on September 11th.

If all of us do this together in every time zone round the world, we will have a powerful chain of thoughts surrounding us.
Stay in touch,
XOXOX,
PEGGY JO

GOD BLESS AMERICA !

Having a sharp tongue can cut your own throat !!

An amazing, moving, true 911 story by Charles Strohmer PLEASE READERS TAKE THE TIME TO READ IT.!

This is a based on author Charles Strohmer's experience that morning when he was flying from London to Atlanta , and the events that followed.

The Kindness of Strangers:
Heaven on Earth at an Air Force Base
by Charles Strohmer

Four hours out of London, flying uneventfully through fluorescent blue sky six miles above the Atlantic, the passengers aboard Delta Flight 59 were digesting their meals, quietly absorbed in laptops, reading novels, or drowsily captive to that vespertine atmosphere created on planes when the movies are running. Other than departing Gatwick 45 minutes late, so far the only bother could now be heard in hushed buzz of passengers asking air hostesses why all the video screens had suddenly gone blank. The movies should be back on in a few minutes, came the reply over the intercom. It happens. A computer needs re-booting. (A mere fib, it turned out.)

Passengers stretched, ordered drinks, queued for toilets. Some broke the spell of counterfeit evening by sliding up their porthole shades. Outside, the blinding powder blue evanescence went on forever. Pilots call the phenomenon "severe clear." It hurts your eyes to stare at it too long. Twenty minutes passed. People fidgeted. Five hours to go before 3.40pm touchdown in Atlanta . The Boeing 777 droned on.

Suddenly everyone's attention focused on the Texas drawl coming from the intercom. "Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. May I have your attention. Your serious attention." The dreaded words. Within a millisecond, worst nightmares sprung from the fuselage, the overhead compartment, the unconscious—wherever those boarding the plane had stowed them.A kind of holy moment spread through cabin. We're going down. No one spoke. No one dared.

Here's the short blurb: "To read the rest of Charles Strohmer's essay, go to: www.charlesstrohmer.com/kindnessofstra ngers.html Don't be afraid, it is a safe site.

Hebrew National Plaque

Charley receives his Plaque

addition to his VIP trip to New York's Yankee Stadium to to see the Tigers play the Yankees Charley received this plaque. (see the story in last weeks newsletter)

People with hate in their hearts may sound pleasant enough,but don't believe them. Though they pretend to be kind, their hearts are full of all kinds of evil.

While their hatred may be concealed by trickery, it will finally come to light for all to see.

Proverbs 26:24-26
