I accept your apology. I checked your homepage and you were quoting scripture and I couldn’t figure out your saying that was a terrible image. We must display Christianity in talking to one another, don’t you agree?

We love to meet new people and we have one of the best threads on Free Republic. We are kind to one another and post pretty graphics. When discussing ballgames, we do fun things.

Maybe you can visit us often and we will get a better start.

“Moving is hard on anyone..but harder the older we get.”

Oh so true! Thankfully we are in a nice safe and wonderful home now. The apartment we lived in opened their doors to section-8 families, and soon we had fights in the parking lot and damage to the apartments. Something we never had in 11 years living there. Now we live in a 3 bedroom house and in a more rural area and feel able to relax and enjoy the days more.

I have an idea:

You bring the wife, I’ll bring the boyfriend, and my little stereo box, and we’ll all sit there in the sand, as the sun sets, and listen to some music by Beethoven, Mozart, and Vivaldi, and tell stories about the years gone by.

And, then you can read to us all, some of your favorite poetry.

When she comes to see me, I smile a lot, too! She gets that from her Mom, Nikki! Remember I told you all one time that Nikki never saw a camera she didn’t love!! They are both vert photogenic!

By the way, you were talking about your Ladybug umbrella yesterday and last Halloween they dressed her in a Ladybug outfit and she was so little and cute. I couldn’t find it!

Thank you!

You are most welcome!
Be sure and watch the other one, it’s impossibly sweet.
There is no more beautiful sound than a babys laughter.
It sounds like little tinkling bells.

Great, and then I can cook up a mess of crab cakes and serve them with a salad and a nice wine!

Crab cakes would take you away from all of us - why don’t we grill some salmon, right there on the beach? I’ll bring the wine - I have a friend with well stocked ‘cellar’, who owes me a couple bottles. (my choice)

The Right Ingredients
October 29, 2011

Although my culinary skills remain undeveloped, occasionally I use a box of premixed ingredients to make a cake. After adding eggs, vegetable oil, and water, I stir it all together. To bake a palate-pleasing cake, it’s vital to have the correct balance of the right ingredients. That helps me picture the relationship of the greatest commandment (Matt. 22:36-38) and the Great Commission (28:19-20) as we spread the gospel.

When Jesus told His followers to go and make disciples of all nations, He did not give them permission to be rude and uncaring as they did so. His own citing of the “first and great commandment”—to love God with all your heart, soul, and mind—was quickly followed by the call to “love your neighbor as yourself” (Matt. 22:37-39). Throughout the New Testament, we find this model of compassionate, respectful living restated many places, including “the love chapter” (1 Cor. 13) and Peter’s instruction to give a reason for the hope within us “with gentleness and respect” (1 Peter 3:15 NIV).

In our eagerness to share Christ with others, we must always include a healthy balance of those two ingredients—the true gospel and godly love. This wonderfully sweet cake bakes best in the warmth of God’s love.

Lord, help me to love with both words and deeds,
To reach out to sinners and meet their needs;
Lord, burden my heart for those lost in sin,
With mercy and love that flows from within. —Fitzhugh

They witness best who witness with their lives.

Read: Matthew 22:34-39; 28:16-20

Always be ready to give a defense . . . with meekness. —1 Peter 3:15
Bible in a year:
Jeremiah 18-19; 2 Timothy 3
