A Few of FR's Finest....Every Day....02-6-06....Military Monday
Billie, The Mayor

Posted on 02/05/2006 7:13:33 PM PST by The Mayor




A Few of FR's Finest
....Every Day
FR is a Treasure Trove of talented, compassionate, patriotic, wonderful people who gather every day to discuss the latest news and issues; salute and support our military and our leaders;  tell a few jokes;  learn a new word;  write poetry;  pray for those in need;  and congratulate those who are deserving. Thank you, Jim Robinson, for giving us the vehicle in which we can express ourselves.
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 November 11, 2001

So many people have written me since my original Veteran's Day Tribute, asking how they, or a loved one, could be included in that tribute. Since I could no longer add the photos to the body of the thread, I had been including them in additional posts as I received enough to make another collage.
Still that didn't seem to be enough. I think there's never been a better nor more appropriate time to keep the faces of our own Veterans and Active Military in front of FReepers--every day! That's why I wanted to do yet another Daily Thread .....ABOUT FReepers .....and FOR FReepers. But not only about our Military FReepers; for all FReepers! Wouldn't it be nice to get to know a few of the other FReepers as well? That's why we've created a place for just that. This is a friendly room in JimRob's house where FReeper FRiends can gather every day and just say hello if that's all they want to do.
There's more of course. We sometimes feature different FReepers, with a little background information on who they are and what makes them who they are, along with a few photos you might not have seen on other threads; sometimes others write an essay for us to post as the feature for the day; sometimes our presentation is a human interest story found elsewhere that you might not have read; sometimes special holiday threads; but whatever the topic of the day, it is always with FR's Finest in mind and that is YOU!
If you would like to be featured, or would like to see someone else featured, please send me a private FR mail.
Every Monday we will post the photos of FR's Military Personnel that I have collected and put into groups; these will be available to view through a link the remainder of the week - every day just a click away. :)   If you would like to add a photo of yourself or a loved one in the military, past or present, please let me know; I will hold it until I have enough for a new group.
Thank you, and please have fun with us...every day! ~ Billie

Jordan's Idea

Read:
2 Timothy 3:14-17

All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, . . . for instruction in righteousness. —2 Timothy 3:16

Bible In One Year: Exodus 39-40; Matthew 23:23-39

coverOne spring day, Jordan began asking questions about Jesus' resurrection as his mom was taking him to preschool. Realizing he thought Jesus was rising from the dead for the first time this Easter, she tried to correct him. She pulled the car over and told him all about Jesus' death and resurrection. She concluded, "Jesus rose from the dead a long time ago, and now He wants to live in our hearts." But Jordan still didn't understand.

Unsure how she could make it any clearer, she said, "How about if we stop by the bookstore? I saw some books about Easter when I was there last week. We'll get one and read through it together." With a wisdom beyond his years, Jordan responded, "Can't we just read the Bible?"

Jordan's idea was right. Commentaries and books about the Bible are helpful tools. But they should never be used as a substitute for God's revelation of Himself—His Word. No other book has been given to us "by inspiration of God" (2 Timothy 3:16). As author Eugene Peterson says, "God's voice [is] speaking to us, inviting, promising, blessing, confronting, commanding, healing."

Let's follow Jordan's idea and go first to the ultimate source of truth—the Bible. —Anne Cetas

Exhaustless store of treasured gems
Within this Book I hold;
And as I read, it comes alive,
New treasures to unfold. —Mortenson

Go to the Bible for your protection, correction, and direction.

Can I Really Trust The Bible?

Some interesting things going on with the cartoon scandal!



Islamic Society of Denmark Used Fake Cartoons to Create Story!

THIS WHOLE DANISH CARTOON CONTROVERSY WAS MADE UP BY THE "ISLAMIC SOCIETY OF DENMARK" WHO SPREAD THE FAKE CARTOONS ON THEIR TRIP TO THE MIDDLE EAST!

The leader of the group is a radical Islamist known for supporting the Anti-Western Islamist struggle!

The organisation Islamic Society in Denmark toured the Middle-East to create awareness about the cartoons, bringing 3 additional images, which HAD NEVER been published in any media source. Evidently, the originals were not offensive enough for the trip so they had to add these three:
go here to see the rest and the 3 other cartoons or should I say images..

why the furor NOW rather than then???

The elderly parking lot attendant wasn't in a good mood!

Neither was Sam Bierstock. It was around 1 a.m., and Bierstock, a Delray Beach, Fla. , eye doctor, business consultant, corporate speaker and musician, was bone tired after appearing at an event.

He pulled up in his car, and the parking attendant began to speak. "I took two bullets for this country and look what I'm doing," he said bitterly.

At first, Bierstock didn't know what to say to the World War II veteran. But he rolled down his window and told the man, "Really, from the bottom of my heart, I want to thank you."

Then the old soldier began to cry.

"That really got to me," Bierstock says.

Cut to today.

Bierstock, 58, and John Melnick, 54, of Pompano Beach - a member of Bierstock's band, Dr. Sam and the Managed Care Band - have written a song inspired by that old soldier in the airport parking lot. The mournful "Before You Go" does more than salute those who fought in WWII. It encourages people to go out of their way to thank the aging warriors before they die.

"If we had lost that particular war, our whole way of life would have been shot," says Bierstock, who plays harmonica. "The WW II soldiers are now dying at the rate of about 2,000 every day. I thought we needed to thank them."

The song is striking a chord. Within four days of Bierstock placing it on the Web http://www.beforeyougo.us/, the song and accompanying photo essay have bounced around nine countries, producing tears and heartfelt thanks from veterans, their sons and daughters and grandchildren.

"It made me cry," wrote one veteran's son. Another sent an e-mail saying that only after his father consumed several glasses of wine would he discuss "the unspeakable horrors" he and other soldiers had witnessed in places such as Anzio, Iwo Jima, Bataan and Omaha Beach. "I can never thank them enough," the son wrote. "Thank you for thinking about them."

Bierstock and Melnick thought about shipping it off to a professional singer, maybe a Lee Greenwood type, but because time was running out for so many veterans, they decided it was best to release it quickly, for! free, on the Web. They've sent the song to Sen. John McCain and others in Washington. Already they have been invited to perform it in Houston for a Veterans Day tribute - this after just a few days on the Web. They hope every veteran in America gets a chance to hear it.

GOD BLESS every EVERY veteran... and THANK you to those of you veterans who may see this !

Rus, perhaps I am misunderstanding you (a real possibility). I checked the view source on my link & there was no comma. I can click on it & it plays.

When you click on my link what do you get?

anyone else getting it or NOT getting it?

I am really a novice with music/media type posts & on my last computer had a nightmare of media player, real player & a few others seeming competing for url playing privileges.. I seem to have corrected it in this new computer (had about a month now)

yes, my neighbor played around a bit with it. not sure what he did exactly. He helps now & then & is always amazed it is still running (159K miles)... I do need transmission work (change).. but have a better van that needs battery & alternator.. so that will be the one fixed when this one dies

yes, when I do them in a word processing program, I often put the link(s) at top also.

another "trick" is that I have labels which get included..

when doing a thread the labels are: Opening, Main, pledge, ping etc.. I normally try to enlarge font & make a bold color but still often it gets included in the "hurry up, I am late" type posts

That's a little less costly and work than a transmission.

I have to find another mini van, I loved my Astro but had to get rid of it, just age, doors wouldn't open any more and a broken windsheild..

My 1 ton Van gets 10 mpg and with the price of gas I can no longer afford just driving it even to do "free estimates".

that is the problem with my "better" van(96 Safari)... larger & poorer gas mileage, although now the Caravan(95 Dodge) with it's transmission & engine problems is not doing what it did at one time with good gas mileage.

A PRAYER FOR OUR SOLDIERS

Today as I knelt in prayer,
I asked my Holy Father for
angels to guide your way,
To protect you, to watch
over you both night and day.

To cover you with His precious
love and keep you from all harm,
To light your path when the way is dark
and when it's cold to keep you warm.

For you are an American soldier,
defending freedom with your life,
Leaving behind a family, children,
a husband or a wife.

But you are a true patriot,
guarding our country no matter the price,
A proud American, ready to
make the ultimate sacrifice.

So if you feel a gentle caress
or the brush of velvet wings,
You will know that angels hover
over you and they were sent by the
King of Kings!!


~~~~~~~~AMEN~~~~~~~~

Ronald Reagan

Intrepid, he was, and jolly,
Observing, and astute.
The secret of his nature,
Was contentment at the root.

Of course, it wasn’t easy,
He had a real rough patch,
He learned to deal with basic things,
Before his dreams could hatch.

He learned to stand up like a man,
However grim the place.
He looked at every bit of life,
A smile upon his face.

He learned the secret early,
The joy there is to see,
Happy happens only if,
You just decide to be.

He started saving lives back then,
He was a strapping lad.
He kept a count inside his head,
His goal? A myriad.

And I would say he reached it,
Reached it, and surpassed.
For who knew then his fragile peace,
Could be the one to last?

Clearly, he could see it,
Of many things foreseen.
The shining lights upon the hill,
He’d glimpsed as just a teen.

His steady course of progress,
Rising as he went,
We only understand it now,
That he is Heaven-sent.
