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!

Off I go for a bit Dutchess. Rainy here. I am having a hard time today with warm fuzzy due to the news from yesterday. Mega prayers for the families & friends of our two heroes.

Mega "Thank you Lord" for the wonderful progress for our Maggie. But prayers continue to her situation and for her hubby also

Out to town company arriving this afternoon so I may/may not not get back today.

I hope all at the Finest can have a gentle day.

Love Never Fails

READ: 1 Corinthians 13

Now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. —1 Corinthians 13:13

Poet Archibald MacLeish says that “love, like light, grows dearer towards the dark.” This is what he calls the “late, last wisdom of the afternoon.” The same is true of our love for one another; it can indeed grow dearer as we age. I have seen it myself in two elderly friends.

Married for over 50 years, they are still very much in love. One is dying of pancreatic cancer; the other is dying of Parkinson’s disease. Last week I saw Barbara lean over Claude’s bed, kiss him, and whisper, “I love you.” Claude replied, “You’re beautiful.”

I thought of couples who have given up on their marriages, who are unwilling to endure through better or worse, sickness or health, poverty or wealth, and I am saddened for them. They will miss the kind of love my friends enjoy in their latter years.

I have watched Claude and Barbara over the years, and I know that deep faith in God, lifelong commitment, loyalty, and self-denying love are the dominant themes of their marriage. They have taught me that true love never gives up, it “never fails.” Theirs is the “late, last wisdom of the afternoon,” and it will continue to the end. May we express that same unfailing love to those who love us. David H. Roper

Lord, teach us the secret of loving,
The love You are asking today;
Then help us to love one another—
For this we most earnestly pray.  —Anon.

Don’t put off until tomorrow the loving words you can say today.

Bible in One Year: Bible in One Year:   Esther 3-5; Acts 5:22-42

Sorry so late posting today. Serious thunderstorms all night, morning with power on and off. Poor pups quivering on dad's lap (and he feels so special) BBL (turning the 'puter off!)

GOD BLESS AND PROTECT OUR TROOPS!


Oh as I was young and easy in the mercy of his means,
Time held me green and dying
Though I sang in my chains like the sea.

Good first-day-of-summer, Rus! Hope you are staying busy, and that it's not too hot to work.

Thanks for our beautiful lesson from God's Word.
