A Few of FR's Finest....Every Day....04-21,22,23-06....T.G.I.F. at the Finest
Billie

Posted on 04/21/2006 7:12:52 AM PDT by Billie



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, GodBlessUSA, JustAmy ~







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.
received this in my email June 10th, the author is unknown.
I am wearing red today and every Friday ~ Billie

Wearing red on Friday to support the troops & ready to tackle the day!

speaking (again) of fairies.. I better be careful as my nose is going to grow!

THAT IS A LIE. I am not dressed like that or even wearing red! I am still in my night gown & want to go back to bed, not tackle the day!

thanks for opening the weekend doors with a lovely thread, clever ping (are those the shoes you got?) har! Love the "wavy" pledge.

will stop in periodically over the week-end. It is covered wall to wall with commitments on line & in person!

Not Enough

Read:
Ecclesiastes 2:1-16

What profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed or lost? —Luke 9:25

Bible In One Year: 2 Samuel 12-13; Luke 16

cover The writer of Ecclesiastes said that pleasure, material possessions, and even great knowledge do not bring lasting satisfaction. Jesus went even further. He said that a person who possesses everything this world has to offer but doesn't prepare for eternity is spiritually destitute. We all need more than fun, finances, and fame to be fulfilled.

Thinking about this made me consider some prominent people who had committed suicide. One was a baseball star, several were entertainers, and two had inherited great wealth. I also recalled a highly esteemed scholar and his wife who both took a lethal overdose of drugs when they learned that she had terminal cancer. These people had failed to find meaning in their existence.

Because we were created in God's image, our lives do have meaning for both time and eternity. God made us for His glory and placed us on earth to honor Him. We have the remarkable ability to reflect on Him and on eternity.

Believing that Jesus died for our sins and rose from the grave meets our need for meaning. Salvation brings assurance that we're forgiven. We have an eternal purpose and the hope of heaven. This is enough to bring deep peace and joy to our lives. Have you found this to be so? —Herb Vander Lugt

For Further Study
Perhaps you're looking for that
elusive sense of satisfaction.

Hold loosely the things of earth. —ten Boom

How are you today? I'm going to get my son to fertilize my garden plants, trees etc. today. He's so good to me. He'll put it all out and I'll try to throw it out from a cup. Otherwise he will take it over. We will have rain this weekend and I will just relax.

Lovely photo of the Queen today on her 80th birthday

Queen Elizabeth II laughs as she passes a gift of a union jack baseball cap to an aide during a walkabout to celebrate her 80th birthday in Windsor, England, Friday April, 21, 2006.

I really mean it. I think it's her best color!

Although she was photographed in a silver outfit the other day that looked good as well... the opposite of bright, but it worked.

She looks absolutely incredible for 80! It's so good to have happy news for a change.
