A Few of FR's Finest....Every Day....06-16,17,18-06....T.G.I.F. at the Finest

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.

I am wearing red today and every Friday ~ Billie

God Reigns

READ: Psalm 93

Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns! Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory. —Revelation 19:6-7

I remember well the shock and grief I felt in 1968 when Senator Robert Kennedy was assassinated in Los Angeles. People everywhere, regardless of their political affiliation, were numb with grief and horror. Coming so soon after the assassination of his brother, President John F. Kennedy, made it even more tragic.

Yet after Senator Kennedy’s funeral in St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the walls echoed with the triumphant words of Handel’s Messiah: “The Lord God Omnipotent reigneth, . . . and He shall reign for ever and ever.”

These words do not suggest that God willed the assassination. They are a triumphant affirmation that in spite of such events, God achieves all His good purposes. People do things that anger and grieve Him. But He is at work bringing good out of evil, light out of darkness, joy out of pain, order out of chaos, and life out of death.

In Psalm 93, the pounding waves of the seas that “have lifted up their voice” represent humanity in turmoil and opposition to God (v.3). They sometimes seem to be winning the battle. But the Lord is “mightier than the noise of many waters” (v.4). One day He will completely vanquish all opposition and usher in the perfect eternal world He has promised us. Our God reigns! Hallelujah! Herbert Vander Lugt

Our God is an awesome God!
He reigns from heaven above
With wisdom, power, and love—
Our God is an awesome God!  —Mullins

The more clearly we see God’s sovereignty,
the less perplexed we are by man’s calamities.

Good Morning The Mayor The more clearly we see God’s sovereignty, the less perplexed we are by man’s calamities.
I just made the mistake of watching the news. This is wonderful to read to start the day! Thanks :)
