Seeing 9/11 from afar

How does this picture affect you?  In some ways, it makes light of the up-close, horrific events of that day.  But in other ways, it reminds us that every day all across the world there is untold suffering and tragedy that no one ever sees, save One.  And thankfully, He is not a distant, apathetic Observer, but a personal and loving Savior who entered into our world and suffered more than any other person will ever suffer again to ultimately overcome our suffering and bring us into his arms of grace.  Run to him today and rest in his love for you on the cross.
