Challenger Pieces of a Miracle

Our Stages are unique, Kathy enjoys sharing her latests thoughts and stages through Hub pages and looks forward to learning about yours.


History recorded a nightmare and a dream at the same time: Jan. 28, 1986 the Challenger lifted off from Cape Canaveral, Florida.

Seventy- three seconds, Christa McAuliffe had that time to live out a dream. She was a civilian, an ordinary person heading into space on the Challenger. People say, why? Why is it, that something so amazing can turn to disaster? We must not forget the events before the explosion. Christa had a wonderful family, she was a teacher and finally, she was chosen. See none of us are really ordinary, God chose to die for each of us. Trials will come and they will go. We will all be challenged, but don’t forget the many miracles and beautiful events before the storm. Maybe you can make a dream come true, for yourself or someone else? What can you do with seventy-three seconds?

Pieces of His Miracles

Remember we are all in pieces and one day we will see His beautiful face and be made whole. Try not to forget the tiny miracles. We were created in His image, we are His miracles. Never forget all the pieces make us whole as long as we are going to Him for Direction. He will lead you, He will guide you and He will use you. Always remember His promises and make some dreams come true.

Pieces -red - Lyrics

Remember but Never Forget ~ God Is in Control

Never give up! You were chosen and your seventy-three seconds matter. No matter how they end up you were chosen to have seventy-three seconds and much more. You can go to home in pieces, but your moments matter. Whether ii is a dream or a disaster you're experiencing today. God is allowing it and is all over the outcomes. Eventually we end up in a paradise, that is super cool. After disaster hit we can't forget the miracles and dreams that have come before it, and those that will follow the crash.

His love is forever and unconditional and time with God is the only thing that makes us whole. They say it is important to live for the time in between, to focus on the dash and make it count. Sadly, the world is so loud and we get caught up in routines and rituals. A cleaner house, a crazy schedule, a list of do's! We are so busy and yet what are we doing. What if you had just seventy-three seconds as the people on the challenger flight. How would you have wanted to spend the time in between? Would you have laughed more, played more, prayed more?

I hope we are not so overstimulated by the loudness of the world that you live in regrets. This world is just a practice ground. We are all allowed an eternity. They say, "practice makes perfect." Maybe that is our problem, we're not perfect. No matter how hard we try or convince ourselves that we have it going on or all figured out, we will never meet the goal of perfection.

How about we try to be human, real, admitting our imperfections and allowing other's their's. Who are we anyway other than people trying to live out our dash. Seventy-three seconds is a short time to get it right. We could just settle in for the ride of a lifetime and enjoy the moments. We could do our best to help one another and encourage those we meet along the way. We could pray unceasingly and focus on the hope and faith of what is to come.

I remember a time in my life when seventy-three seconds felt like a lifetime and when I thought about the time in between I was okay with what I saw, however, if I woke up one day convicted that I should put my focus on where I am going and not where I have been?

Maybe we should all try to quiet the loudness of the world and focus on the grace given during our dash? Maybe we should care for other's as our self and focus on the destination. That is what I am going to try to do. I will not be perfect, but I will enjoy the time in between and seek other's lost and looking for their destination.

Seventy-three seconds is a long time if you count slowly and remember what brought you to it and where you are headed!

      This was such a sad day in history but it is such a great reminder that God has a plan for each of us and we cannot stop living because we are afraid of that plan
