USS New York and The Image of The Cross

USS New York
 It was built with 24 tons of scrap steel from the  
World  Trade  Center.
  It is the fifth in a new class of warship – designed for missions that include special operations against terrorists.
 It will carry a crew of 360 sailors and 700 combat-ready Marines to be delivered ashore by helicopters and assault craft.
 Steel from the  World  Trade  Center was melted down in a foundry in  Amite , LA to cast the ship’s bow section.
When it was poured into the molds on Sept 9, 2003, ‘those big rough steelworkers treated it with total reverence,’ recalled Navy Capt. Kevin Wensing, who was there.
 ‘It was a heart moving moment for everybody there.’
 Junior Chavers, foundry operations manager, said that when the trade center steel first arrived, he touched it with his hand and the ‘hair on my neck stood up.’
‘It had a big meaning to it for all of us,’ he said. ‘They knocked us down. They can’t keep us down. We’re going to be back.’
 The Ship’s motto? ‘Never Forget’
On March 1, 2008, LPD-21 was Christened with the name USS NEW YORK at ceremonies in Northrop Grumman’s Avondale shipyard.

Image of a Cross Shining Through an American Flag
Janna Noe doing her weekly shop at Fry’s Grocery Store in Yuma on September 12, 2001 the day after the horrific attack on America’s Twin Towers noticed an American
Flag had been hung between two cranes in the parking lot of the grocery store in honour of the fireman and others who worked tirelessly to help the victims, it was 60 feet tall and 120 feet wide.
As the sun was going down Janna took a few photos, but to her amassment when looking at them later, she saw a Cross shining through the stars on the Flag, this had been created by the sun’s rays. The photo is authentic and untouched.

Is their a logical reason to explain this occurrence, yes no doubt like the position of light on the material etc But can we overlook the deeper significance which is the Light of the Lord shining through in the darkness, offering His Love and Hope when all seems lost.
Let us too shine through the darkness reflecting the Light of the Lord offering
His Love and Hope to a World that is hurting and needing guidance.
But we can’t do it alone…
Jesus Christ the Day Star or  Morning Star rises in our hearts
 and then we shine as His Stars or Lights ?”  
So that we may become blameless and pure Children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation in which we shine like Stars in the Universe  Philippians 2:15
We have the word of the Prophets made more certain, and we  will do well to pay attention to it, as to a Light shining in a dark place until the Day dawns and the Morning star rises in our hearts – 2 Peter 1:19
I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the Churches.
 I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and Morning star
Revelation 22:16

      Yes Angie, it is awesome as God is Awesome and what a wonderful assurence as His Children that He is always with us through the good and bad but how many Christians wondered where He was as He helped carry out the bodies and grieved as He did so and as He comforted those who had lost Loved ones, why dosen’t He stop this evil, He will soon but He is patient not wanting anyone to perish.

      Christian Love Anne
