Authentic Beauty
Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, but a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised. —Proverbs 31:30

I often take a moment as I wait at our grocery store checkout stand to scan the covers of the magazines displayed there. It seems that if they aren’t about sex and money, they’re about diet, fitness, health, and outward beauty. There’s nothing there for the soul.

The problem is that people read the wrong magazines—those that are full of lies that fixate on beauty of face and form as though that’s all there is. This can lead to comparison and terrible despair.

Some years ago, a friend of mine told of a conversation he had with a lovely, self-assured teenager. “You’re very self-confident,” he observed. “Can you tell me why?” “Yes,” the young woman answered. “It’s because I’m so pretty.” “Oh, I’m sorry,” he said with extraordinary wisdom. “Why?” she asked in surprise. “Because,” he replied, “you may not always be pretty.”

“Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing” is the wisdom we read in Proverbs 31. Physical beauty all too quickly fades away; all one’s efforts to keep it are doomed to fail. But there is an inner beauty—authentic beauty that will endure forever—in the one “who fears the Lord” (v.30).

Let the beauty of Jesus be seen in me—
All His wonderful passion and purity!
O Thou Spirit divine, all my nature refine,
Till the beauty of Jesus be seen in me. —Orsborn

Righteousness in the heart produces beauty in the character.

Bible in One Year: Joshua 1-3; Mark 16

"Wear Red" Friday
You will soon see a lot of people wearing Red on Fridays. Here's why..... The Americans, who support our troops, are the silent majority. We are not "organized" to reflect who we are, or to reflect what our opinions are. Many Americans, like yourself, and all their friends, simply want to recognize that Americans support our troops. Our idea of showing our solidarity and support for our troops is starting Friday and continuing on each and every Friday, until this is over, that every red-blooded American who supports our young men and women, WEAR SOMETHING RED.

Word of mouth, press, TV -- let's see if we can make the United States, on any given Friday, a sea of red much like a home football game at a University. If every one of our memberships share this with other acquaintances, fellow workers, friends, and neighbors, I guarantee that it will not be long before the USA will be covered in RED - and make our troops know there are many people thinking of their well-being. You will feel better all day Friday when you wear Red! So let's get the word out and lead by example; wear RED on Fridays.

SUPPORT OUR TROOPS! WE LIVE IN THE LAND OF THE FREE, BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE. FOR US, THEIR BLOOD RUNS RED!! GOD BLESS AMERICA.

From an email on June 10th, 2006 - the author is unknown.

We are being made into the image of Christ. We are the hands, the feet, the voices for God in this world.

I pray ... to be numbered like Stephen .... “full of faith and the Holy Ghost and wisdom. He did miracles,and wonders among the people;” and was stoned as he spoke and gave voice to telling of the unbelief of Israel. Acts 6&7

Christianity is not a tolerant religion.

God help us in our day, in Jesus name, amen.

Thank you, Conor, for honoring these fallen heroes.

May God Comfort and Bless the families of LCpl Scott Hardy and Pvt James Grigg, 1st Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment. They fought the fight for Freedom.

Freedom is not free ..... We will not forget these fallen warriors. May they rest in peace.

__________________________________________________________

Job 2
1.Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them to present himself before the LORD.

2.And the LORD said unto Satan, From whence comest thou? And Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.

3.And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? and still he holdeth fast his integrity, although thou movedst me against him, to destroy him without cause.

4.And Satan answered the LORD, and said, Skin for skin, yea, all that a man hath will he give for his life.

5.But put forth thine hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh, and he will curse thee to thy face.

6.And the LORD said unto Satan, Behold, he is in thine hand; but save his life.

7.So went Satan forth from the presence of the LORD, and smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot unto his crown.

8.And he took him a potsherd to scrape himself withal; and he sat down among the ashes.

9.Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die.

10.But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips.

*HUGS*
After 4 months of severe back pain from muscle spasms..I finally went to the doctor yesterday and had a check up..Living in bed wasn't working out for me...and just made me more susceptible I think.
The Percocet and Soma had me sleep through Canteen good mornings.
I am loathe to go to the doctor..one of my many faults!
The good news is there seem to be no disc problems.
I will be thrilled if I can go 30 minutes up without pain.

I must get ready for my Grandson’s wedding in June..I am missing a brunch this weekend because of the pain.
