Good evening, Amy.
Checking in to see what the Freepers are saying about the goobermint shutdown.
Taking refuge at Amy’s Place!
Pour me a cup on decaf tea!
Looks like I have been AWOL for so long that I’ve forgotten how to post. :)
Thank you, and love that graphic!
I will try to go to bed now and dream of the time that President Reagan was in charge. Oh the good old days.
Oh how I MISS Ronnie Reagan! Honest, direct, he LOVED our country, and he was FOR THE PEOPLE!
Have a wonderful week, everybody!!
I’ve been reading lots of posts on FReeRepublic but my major concerns at this point are Jim Robison’s surgical procedure.
The US budget figures from Congress suggest that “ObamaCare” is stuck on stupid!
Having actually read through the multiple pages of Obama-Care, I agree that “STUPID” is an appropriate definition of our president’s and DEM congress support of this bill!!!
What do the Hubble Space Telescope, a zoo, and singing children have in common? According to the teaching of Psalm 148, we could conclude that they all point to Gods magnificent creation.
The idea that God created our world is often questioned, so perhaps its a good time for a reminder of the praise we and all creation should heap on our heavenly Father for His magnificent handiwork.
Hubble can help us with that through its eye-popping pictures of our universe. Every one of those brilliant photos points to stars that focus attention on Gods creative majesty. Praise Him, all you stars of light! says verse 3.
A visit to a zoo points us to the great diversity of wildlife God created. We look at verses 7 and 10 and say thank you to God for sea creatures, wild animals, insects, and birds.
And a few minutes of watching little children singing uninhibited praises to God symbolizes the truth that all people of earth should lift their voices in honor of our Creator (vv.11-13).
Stars, animals, and children: Let them praise the name of the Lord, for His name alone is exalted (v.13). Lets join in saying thanks for His creation. Praise the Lord!

1st prayer thread
Jim Robinson is in need of FReeper Prayers [Jim’s update in reply @ #1011]
Jim Robinson’s surgery postponed but he needs us to continuing praying. Update #199
I’m hoping that everyone will keep Jim in their prayers.
I haven’t heard anything this morning about a time. I want them to be cautious but I’m hoping this gets taken care of today.
I hope so, too, Amy..Just posted on the update thread.Prayers for the very best outcome.
How did Jim’s surgery go?
Jim’s surgery was postponed due to a rapid heart rate. They are giving him fluids and magnesium. He was dehydrated and his magnesium levels were low.
They kept him overnight and are hoping his heart rate will stabilize so they can take him to surgery today.
I have been AWOL again too. Your graphics are great and I just sent prayers for JimRob. Thank you Amy.
Great to see you. Hope both of us can spend more time here in the near future.
Thank you Amy, that was sweet of you to say. I’ve lost a lot of my vim and vigor for posting and just go in spurts now. The whole world is in turmoil it seems and never much good news anymore. Good to see you too and (HUGS) to you.
The book To Marry an English Lord chronicles the 19th-century phenomenon of rich American heiresses who sought marriages to British aristocracy. Although they were already wealthy, they wanted the social status of royalty. The book begins with Prince Albert, son of Queen Victoria, going to the United States to pay a social call. A mass of wealthy heiresses flood into a ball arranged for Prince Albert, each hoping to become his royal bride.
Believers in Christ dont have to just hopethey are assured of a royal marriage in heaven. John talks about it in the book of Revelation: Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready. And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints (19:7-8). Jesus is the Lamb, who is the Bridegroom talked about in that Scripture, and believers are His bride.
As the bride of Christ, we are to make ourselves ready for that day by striving to live close to Him now in anticipation of our future with Him in heaven. There we will be glad and rejoice and give . . . glory (v.7) to the King of kings and Lord of lords!

“Help us”, “change us”, “fill us” ... LORD. without you we can do no thing. ...
...”Jesus is the Lamb, who is the Bridegroom talked about in that Scripture, and believers are His bride.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~”Praise God from whom all blessings flow” ...
Prayers for America and restoration to our former Christian values and faith in God for America. Amen.

A number of years ago, when I was a new human resource manager for a company, I attended the visitation and funeral of a long-time employee I had never met. The worker, a bricklayer, was loved by his co-workers, yet very few came to see his widow. I listened to someone trying to console her by saying that many people stay away because they are afraid of saying or doing the wrong thing and making the family more miserable.
In times of distress, however, people rarely remember what we say. What they most remember is that we were there. Familiar faces offer strength beyond description; they provide comfort for the deep feelings of loneliness setting in from the loss. This gift of presence is one were all capable of offering, even if were tongue-tied or uncomfortable.
Martha and Mary were surrounded by friends and mourners who comforted them when their brother Lazarus died (John 11:19). Then the One they most longed to seeJesuscame and wept with them (vv.33-35). The people responded, See how He loved him! (v.36).
In loss of any kind, Jesus always gives His comforting presence, and we have the ability to give deeply of His compassion simply by the gift of our presence.

Congrats Meg! My back has been brutal lately. Makes things difficult. Just being persistent but patient.
Patience is key..and I get short on it..I pray for patience as I recognize this fault(among many) of mine..
Deep sympathy for your brutal back pain...I can take days off without penalty where you can’t ! I have engaged in persistence..Going up and down the step ladder so much had unused leg muscles fired up..and I knew stopping too long would mean I had to start over getting them in shape.
When the back says stop..I listen better than I used to.
I just made a list of what not to do..so point agony won’t take over..(Patience required)
Of course sometimes it hits when I have done nothing at all.
I am so grateful and taking advantage of this ability to DO!
I’m thankful you have been able to get this done. Sometimes it’s the little things..... :)
