A Few of FR's Finest....Every Day...11-22,23-03...Week in Review
Mama_Bear

Posted on 11/22/2003 12:10:48 AM PST by Mama_Bear



A Few of FR's Finest....Every Day
Free Republic made its debut in September, 1996, and the forum was added in early 1997. Over 100,000 people have registered for posting privileges on Free Republic, and the forum is read daily by tens of thousands of concerned citizens and patriots from all around the country and the world.
A Few of FR's Finest....Every Day was introduced on June 24, 2002. It's only a small room in JimRob's house where we can get to know one another a little better; salute and support our military and our leaders; pray for those in need; and congratulate those deserving. We strive to keep our threads entertaining, fun, and pleasing to look at, and often have guest writers contribute an essay or a profile of another FReeper.
On Mondays please visit us to see photos of A FEW OF FR'S VETERANS AND ACTIVE MILITARY
If you have a suggestion, or an idea, or if there's a FReeper you would like to see featured, please drop one of us a note in FR mail.
We're having fun and hope you are!

~ Billie, Mama_Bear, dansangel, dutchess, Aquamarine ~







To Our FReeper FRiends: We hope you've been having as much fun as we have with our essays and/or spotlight on various FReepers. We thought we'd kick back on the weekends and simply review the features of the week. If you missed seeing them and want to say hello there now, feel free to click on the link to that particular thread. If you'd like to drop in and out of this thread today and tomorrow, please feel free to do that also. One of us will always be around to see the welcome mat is still out, and maybe even put fresh flowers on the table. ~ Billie

Good morning Meg. I did see the "horse thread" yesterday. I am a "city-boy" by nature, but because of my wife's interest in horses I gave it a pretty good look.

Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them. —Romans 12:6


FOR FURTHER THOUGHT
How has God gifted you to serve?
If you don't know, prayerfully seek godly counsel
and then reach out to build others up.

God uses ordinary people to carry out His extraordinary plan.

Sorry I wasn't around but when I got home Mrs Mayor was on the puter. I had time to post coffee and run.

I wanted to update you all on my interview yesterday.

It was a good interview, I just may have the job as Operations Manager.
The company installs windows, roofing, siding, insulation etc.. There are 30 employees.

I would be in charge of all operations in the field. The owner (Rick) wants to hire me but needs to figure out how to and when.
This is the slow season so I will most likely not start till after the first of the year.
So in the mean time I need to get thru the Holidays.
I will be meeting him again Dec 3rd, then we will go over his plan of action.
I'll be taking a position that another guy wants, so there may be a little tension there.

Thankyou all for your Prayers..

You saw and heard it? Good. Maybe they won't block it this time.

On your pic, It was originally a red x, but I did the old right click/properties and did a copy/paste of the URL to see it.

These webmasters are funny guys, huh? lol ! ...

Proud mommy showing off :)

Frankie caught the largest trout on his Sponge Bob Square Paints fishing pole :) Douglas caught 2 trout and various Sunnies.

Amanda didn't catch any trout, just Sunnies. We released all the Sunnies and just kept the trout.

Hello all. Nice to see your beautiful faces here on this Fine Saturday. It's still Saturday here on the left coast, but not for long.

I've been suffering with a miserable cold, that's why I haven't been around much. I'm beginning to feel a bit of improvement....hoping by Thanksgiving I'll be back to my old self (such as I was, LOL).

Have a blessed Sunday, each and every one.

God is the King of all the earth; sing praises with understanding. —Psalm 47:7


You are the chosen of the Lord
To sing His highest praise,
And through the melody of song
To show His wondrous ways.

To sing God's praise, keep your heart in tune with Him.

The Son has risen, as has the sun,
that we as flawed mortals might come before
our Father in Heaven !!

Rejoice this and every day,
and come before Him with thanksgiving and praise...

Hear us, oh Lord, and watch over
our nation, our President and leaders,
today and always. Amen.
