A Few of FR's Finest....Every Day....11-18,19,20-05....T.G.I.F. at the Finest
Billie, GodBlessUSA

Posted on 11/18/2005 3:49:18 AM PST by GodBlessUSA



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, Dutchess, Dolly Cali, Mama_Bear ~







Welcome to TGIF at the Finest!   We hope you've been having as much fun as we have with our essays and/or spotlight on various FReepers. From the beginning, we've been kicking back on Saturdays and Sundays and simply reviewing the features of the week; our weekend threads now start on Friday and continue through Sunday. If you missed seeing any of this week's threads and want to say hello there now, just click on the link for that particular day. If you'd like to drop in and out of this thread today through Sunday, please feel free to do that also. One of us will try to be around to see the welcome mat is still out, put the coffee pot on, and maybe even bring fresh flowers for the table. : )

"Wear Red" Friday
You will soon see a lot of people wearing Red on Fridays. Here's why..... The Americans, who support our troops, are the silent majority. We are not "organized" to reflect who we are, or to reflect what our opinions are. Many Americans, like yourself, and all their friends, simply want to recognize that Americans support our troops. Our idea of showing our solidarity and support for our troops is starting Friday and continuing on each and every Friday, until this is over, that every red-blooded American who supports our young men and women, WEAR SOMETHING RED.

Word of mouth, press, TV -- let's see if we can make the United States, on any given Friday, a sea of red much like a home football game at a University. If every one of our memberships share this with other acquaintances, fellow workers, friends, and neighbors, I guarantee that it will not be long before the USA will be covered in RED - and make our troops know there are many people thinking of their well-being. You will feel better all day Friday when you wear Red! So let's get the word out and lead by example; wear RED on Fridays.

SUPPORT OUR TROOPS! WE LIVE IN THE LAND OF THE FREE, BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE. FOR US, THEIR BLOOD RUNS RED!! GOD BLESS AMERICA.

I am wearing red today and every Friday ~ Billie

Gals thanks for the welcome here on your finest thread. I was looking over the graphic you have with the names of our active duty and families members of active duty again a few minutes ago. I am so happy that we have the internet this time around, (not like Vietnam) so we can get our message of thanks out the the troops and their families. I really believe every message of thanks we post and every thread we post make a difference to somoeone-somewhere....and that has to grow bigger and bigger.... we all have to do something- however small everyday.... so good job y'all! Hugs gals!

A World In Labor

Read:
Romans 8:18-25

The whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. —Romans 8:22

Bible In One Year: Galatians 4-6

cover Every now and then the earth lets out a moan. Sometimes it's more of a scream, like a mother giving birth.

The apostle Paul said that "the whole creation groans and labors" (Romans 8:22). These groans often take the form of earthquakes, landslides, hurricanes, or tsunamis.

A song by Sarah McLachlan speaks to this instability and the often tragic results of such geologic flailing. Called "World On Fire," one verse describes dealing with tragedy this way:

"I watch the heavens and I find a calling; something I can do to change this moment. Stay close to me while the sky is falling; don't want to be left alone."

We aren't alone in longing for Jesus, our Savior, to return. As we wait, He is our constant companion. Like the earth, we rant and rave for God to make things right. We as His followers are called to wait "with perseverance" (v.25) in spite of our earthly uncertainties. Someday all of creation "will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God" (v.21).

Jesus said that He would be with us always, "even to the end of the age" (Matthew 28:20). And we can trust Him to keep His word. —Dale Beaver

When earthquakes and calamities
Increasingly appear,
Look up, trust God, He's in control—
Redemption's drawing near. —Hess

Jesus makes possible our new birth and nature's rebirth.

I agree Diva
I feel the same way about the internet. I'm so thankful we have the Internet. Our Heroes, are and always have been America's Blessing. They deserved to be honored. I love being able to read and post about them everyday. Forget that msm, we are the American Citizens and our voice are the ones that should be heard. Not that minority propaganda the msm tries to feed us. :)

I should have commented sooner. So many read your posts and may not comment to you how much we enjoy seeing them each day. Although, I'm sure many do! :)

It's cold here downstate. You all must be really cold this morning! :) Stay warm. Good night for the fire place.

We are indebted to you for stepping up to the Friday at The Finest Posting Plate, GBA!
You've done a beautiful job of it with your Pledge of Allegiance and cute exhausted?/relaxed? kitty!

Your reminder of fireplace weather descending upon most of America sent me to the Finest Family Room, and I see this fella has already lit our first one of the season before he goes angling for fishies..:))

Here's a special cup of hot chocolate I made for you
to keep you going..

It is cold here too, no snow where we are, but just a short drive to the south towns there is a ton of lake effect snow.

Speaking of 'warming' things, we do indeed appreciate His Honor posting our portion of Daily Bread to start our days.

By the way, even this far south we had a low of about 35 degrees this morning, but we will quickly bounce up to the 60's with sunshine.
We actually badly need rainfall for the winter grass crops to germinate and flourish.
