I look out of the window of my New York apartment and I see skyscrapers.
The Freedom Tower stands tall and strong. Depending on the time of day, the light reflects off its sides and makes it appear two-tone in color.
The Tower is also an indicator of the day’s weather. If I can clearly see it’s detailed design and antenna on the top, I know it’s going to be a fine day. If the top half of the Tower is hidden in mist, I expect humidity. If I can’t see the tower at all—it’s raining.
The Freedom Tower is a reminder to never forget those who lost their lives and those still suffering from the events of 9/11. It is a reminder to pray for God’s love to fill our hearts and earth, instead of letting hatred and evil reign.
What is on the skyline where you live? Is it buildings, trees, your neighbor’s homes? How are you prompted to pray?
