Happy August Everyone & thanks for spankin' new thread Amy... summer is just flying by...although I dont like the excessive heat & humidity, I truly dislike the extreme cold, wind & snow/ice.

Hope all here have a great Lord's Day. I will be conducting services at a retirement center & will include a memorial for one of the residents who died this past week

Been busy on the home-front, never ending deferred maintenance & pack rat issues. My back problems always complicate things. Dogs and mom are fine & I continue with my daily long outings with pups & movies & reading this summer keep me smilin'

Have a great Lord's Day

What a beautiful graphic and Psalm
Thank you, Dolly. My sympaties on back pain.
Been slowly working on long deferred cleanups.
Back pain can stop me cold from getting things done.
May The Lord bless your service at the retirement home. Have a beautiful Lord's Day

Freep mail me to be on or off the Daily Bread ping list

The Unknown Giver
August 1, 2010

I don’t know about you, but I tend to enjoy getting credit when I do stuff for others. And I don’t think I’m alone in appreciating thank you cards and words of gratitude.

I also know, however, that there’s something to be said for anonymity. This must be a good way to give, because Jesus endorsed it.

That’s why I was impressed with a gift that arrived anonymously on our front porch one day. We had been out of town; and when we returned, there stood several flower pots—each holding a blooming sunflower. We knew the reason—they were left on our doorstep on the birthday of our late daughter, Melissa, who loved sunflowers. Someone was telling us, “We remember Mell.” By giving anonymously, they focused completely on our family rather than on themselves.

Imagine a world in which we all gave generously and selflessly. Jesus mentioned secret giving in Matthew 6. He said, “When you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, that your charitable deed may be in secret” (vv.3-4).

Realistically, we can’t always give anonymously. But our giving should always be marked with the same spirit of selfless humility and God-directed charity.

Give as ’twas given to you in your need,
Love as the Master loved you;
Be to the helpless a helper indeed
Unto your mission be true. —Wilson

Self-sacrifice is the true measure of our giving.

Read: Matthew 6:1-4

When you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing. —Matthew 6:3
Bible in a year:
Psalms 57-59; Romans 4

And, I was going to post a "WOW!" yesterday, to your beautiful graphic of that sweet little grandaughter!


(computer froze up - and then by the time it came back on - and I answered other pings, it got lost in the shuffle!)

She is SO BEAUTIFUL, Luvie! Thank you for sharing that precious smile with us!

Oh, Meg, your butterfly pictures are BREATHTAKING!
Thank you for putting them all together for us!
I hope you are feeling better today,
And having a Blessed Sunday!

A BUTTERFLY UNVEILS NEW COLORS

Like a butterfly
unveiling new wings
you show me your colors
wings melded of quiet
strength and dignity
with colors taken
from goddess dreams
as she sleeps.

I get pinged every day but seldom contribute. I ran across one of my favorites this week and thought y’all might enjoy the inspirational lyric.

It is the Carter Family standard, Keep on the sunny Side.

Keep On The Sunny Side of Life
Written by Ada Blenkhorn in 1899.
Music by J. Howard Entwisle.

There’s a dark and a troubled side of life
There’s a bright and a sunny side, too
Tho’ we meet with the darkness and strife
The sunny side we also may view

[chorus]
Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side,
Keep on the sunny side of life
It will help us every day, it will brighten all the way
If we’ll keep on the sunny side of life

Tho’ the storm in its fury broke today,
Crushing hopes that we cherished so dear;
Storm and cloud will in time pass away
The sun again will shine bright and clear.

Let us greet with a song of hope each day
Tho’ the moments be cloudy or fair
Let us trust in our Saviour alway
Who keepeth everyone in His care

The vocalist is I believe June Carter Cash.....

Thank you for your good wishes and prayers. He won’t be coming here right away. He is stationed in OK, so will be flying into that airport. I hope that they will be coming to see us soon. Then I’ll fix biscuits...maybe. He is on Atkins, so doesn’t eat much bread. LOL!

Isn’t she a cutie. My son wondered how I got her to sit still long enough to pose...I just said “Grammie wants to take a picture” and she plopped down just long enough for me to snap one! LOL!

GOD BLESS AND PROTECT OUR TROOPS!





Amazing Grace

by John Newton


Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
Was blind, but now I see.
.
’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, .
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed!
.
Through many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.
.
The Lord has promised good to me,
His Word my hope secures;
He will my Shield and Portion be,
As long as life endures.
.
Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.
.
The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, Who called me here below,
Will be forever mine.
.
When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’d first begun.



Lamh Foistenach Abu!

GOD BLESS AND PROTECT OUR TROOPS!



The Lord’s Prayer – Andrea Bocelli

DEAR GOD, who suffered torment, agony,
and death upon the Cross to free our souls
from the chains of iniquity, protect and defend
our troops. Guide them in the performance of
their duties. Strengthen them to endure hard-
ship,danger and deprivation in Your service. Let
their efforts free the people of Iraq and Afghan-
istan from the chains of terror and slavery,
foster a lasting peace in the region, and bring all
to a greater share in Your Mercy.
Amen.

THE NAVY HYMN

Eternal Father, Strong to Save



The Marine Corps Verse:

Eternal Father, grant we pray
To all Marines both night and day,
The Courage, Honor, Strength and Skill
Their Land to serve, Thy Law Fulfill.
Be Thou the Shield forevermore
From every peril to the Corps!


This is the day which the LORD hath made;
we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalms 118:24(KJV)



Have a Blessed Lord’s Day!
