9/11 We Remember & Pray
In Psalms 147:3 we read: “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” That is what I pray for this country on this day! In the news you might hear it asked: "Where were you on this day 9/11? I cannot say I remember where I was on this day because I was in Nigeria on 9/11/2001 but the whole world felt the impact of this day. I cannot pretend or imagine what it feels like to have lost a loved one, family, or friend too! My prayer is for the families and persons affected by the tragedy 18 years ago find peace and healing in a world where pain is constant! I want us to remember we are all God’s children and not just humans defined by the color of our skin or the amount of money in our pockets. I am praying that God will bless this country we call home and our children will continue to enjoy the blessings of being in this country. Do not just remember where you were on this day but pray for this country we call home, pray for the people in leadership who make decisions too. God bless America, today and always!

Some Life Lessons I learned from Working
 I had started working after college and had been given a few months to take the test. I was super nervous and anxious! I recall saying that I did not feel great and one of the pathologists at work had chuckled and said you are anxious about the test! However, I went to the E.R.  I took the test and missed it by a couple points! I was so nervous, anxiety cost me a few points. I took the test again and the rest is history. This month, a few years later, I celebrate having been certified! Here are some lessons I learned that have helped me and I hope that by sharing them, you would pick up a few things too!
