Helped By Fear
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. —Proverbs 9:10

Fear means different things to different people. To professional golfer Padraig Harrington, it is a motivator to help him perform his very best. In 2008, when he won both the British Open and the PGA Championship, Harrington said, “Yes, fear is a big part of me. I’d like to say that I have all the trust and patience and I’m relaxed. No, that’s not my makeup. [Fear] pushes me on. Keeps me getting to the gym. I have to work with it and use it.”

Maybe it’s the fear of failure, or the fear of losing his edge, but Harrington finds fear to be a useful thing in his professional life.

The follower of Christ can also be helped by fear. We are challenged in the Scriptures to a reverential fear of God, which is the best type of fear that there is. It causes us to be concerned about disobeying Him or living in opposition to His ways. It’s being in awe of our great God, bowing to His perfect will, and seeking His wisdom for living. To that end, the proverb declares, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding” (Prov. 9:10).

By fearing God rightly, we can live wisely in an uncertain world.

God dwells in light and holiness,
In splendor and in might;
And godly fear of His great power
Can help us do what’s right. —D. De Haan

Fear God, and you’ll have nothing else to fear.

I looked for a live thread here at FR but found none. Another site has one though & I will check in there on occasion. I like one stop “sufing” for time constraints.

thanks . my HTML is very rusty & my best skill still remains copy & paste.. (which this was.... did a little subbing of my borders)

Last night when I was doing Jim Rob’s birthday thread I could not remember anything.. I have been spoiled with the ease of BBC.

Off to get new license (missing 2 months), vote, dog walk & 5 dollar hamburg day at Chilis .. they have great veggie burgers).. Election Party in Strongsville, about 20 miles west of here. MIGHT get there.. I supported a young college man running for city council..

Hi Billie, I haven’t commented much anywhere lately but I have enjoyed the new things you are doing with the graphics.. the faded back frame is a cool effect & the graphics atop the built in frames is great.

It is all I can do any more just to keep up with the large quantities of pix taken & work them up & get them on a server.

I think things will slow down a bit now. It was an insane summer & fall..

Now it will be more of the hikes etc.

thank you for making Amy’s place so pretty & teaching others to do the same..

Thanks, Dolly. It’s actually easier and much more fun for me to finish the graphics all in my graphics software than it is putting multiple tables around them as we did at the Finest. Still, once in a while I do like to throw a jillion tables around one for old times sake. :)

Thanks for such a sweet, lovely opening with the couple strolling along....so perfect with the Kenny Roger’s song...It just gave me cold chills this morning.

I have also viewed all your beautiful replies with the enclosed quotations and they all are just perfect and touching.

I woke up during the night with a terrible sore throat and temperature. You know, the hot and cold, throwing off the covers and then reaching for them in just a few minutes. Been trying to call my M.D. Cancelled an afternoon eye appointment. I am going to lie down a while. See ya later!

Thank you, jaycee. Again, it shows that we are

I hope that your doctor can see you and give
you something to zap whatever it is that's trying
to get you down ... BEFORE it gets worse. :(

You bet! There are so many gorgeous fall graphics 'out there', I just want to put some of them 'in here'!

I’ve asked for two of these to be removed!! I had the hardest time posting. That resend thing kept popping up and it wouldn’t let me click cancel....I had to click resend or it would pop back up. It happened several times and thats why its there so many times.

Believe there may be something wrong with F.R.because the pages are jumping up and down. I will try to look at one graphic and it starts jumping everywhere and lands somewhere else. Thought I was in the twilight zone. Guess they will take them out when they can.

One for me...one for you...and the next one there can have the third one!

Oh, wouldn’t it be lovely to be sitting in that lovely setting...it might make me all better. Especially with a Margarita!

Billie, thats a lovely picture but the frame is grabbing me...its gorgeous!

My doctor is out today so one of the other doctors in that practice is sending me something. I need to check on it as soon as I have lunch....and I’m having soup, I guess.

And THAT picture reminds me of the song "Wild Thang"....

If anyone here watched Dancing With The Stars the first night this season, Tom DeLay was one of the "Stars", and his first dance was to "Wild Thang"! A whole 'nuther side of The Hammer we saw the first few weeks until he had to quit the show because of stress fractures in both feet. :)
