A Few of FR's Finest....Every Day....1-17-07....Warm Fuzzy Wednesday
Billie

Posted on 01/17/2007 4:44:15 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, DollyCali, GodBlessUSA, Aquamarine~










Welcome to Warm Fuzzy Wednesday at the Finest. For those who start counting the days on Monday until the weekend, we're halfway there! So we're here to banish those doldrums and make you smile inside! Please feel free to post sweet graphics and/or little stories that make you feel all warm and fuzzy - or just come by and give us a smile. Only two more days 'til the weekend!

Yup, I'm with you in that I much prefer winter weather in the 50s during the day and 30-40 at night!

I'm hoping this cold spell doesn't hurt my daylilies that are peeking out of the ground.

You finished painting yet?

I'll never finish painting. LOL Actually, I have to do some today. I have not painted since last week.

I worry about my plants too. I had bridal wreath blooming. I hope that doesn't ruin our spring blooms.

Now that the power is back on..I am fine inside..I haven't been outside except to retrieve T Rubble, the cat, who slipped out while we checked for a downed line..He did not like the icy brick wall he had hopped on and would not come down at first. Keeping my fingers crossed the power stays on! Brrrrr.

Which Way?

READ: 1 Corinthians 1:18-31

The message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing. —1 Corinthians 1:18

Every night, Howard and Mel frequented the cheap bars in Grand Rapids, Michigan, hoping to drown away another miserable day. Finally, the pain of a wasted life was too much, so Mel hopped a train for Chicago, where he hoped to end it all.

But as he walked barefoot through a Chicago snowstorm in 1897, heading for a self-imposed demise in Lake Michigan, he was stopped by a worker from the Pacific Garden Mission. Mel went inside, heard the gospel, and accepted Christ as his Savior.

Later, Mel went back to Grand Rapids to start a mission. Howard heard that he was saved and sober. But instead of trusting Jesus, Howard just laughed at “Old Mel.” To him, “the message of the cross [was] foolishness” (1 Cor. 1:18). Finally, the drinking took its toll on Howard, and he committed suicide.

More than 100 years later, the Mel Trotter Mission still welcomes people who need a place to stay and who need Jesus. And 100 years later, our family is still saddened by Howard’s demise. He was my wife’s grandfather.

Like Mel and Howard, we have a choice. “He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him” (John 3:36). What do you choose?

Which way will you take? The question is clear—
The choice you must make with a heart sincere;
To Jesus the Lord you now are inclined—
Today is the day to make up your mind.  —Hess

To choose Christ now is a choice for eternity.

Good morning, Meg. It's that cold here in North Texas. All schools closed. I won't try to go to work. I'll just stay home to be 'warm and fuzzy'.

Good morning!

Are you still in Houston? I hear you all are getting what we have up here. I need to call my daughter in Houston today to make certain they are ok.

We sure do need "warm" today. This is probably the longest winter weather in Texas I have experienced in over 20 years.
usually we get ice and than few days later it's back up to the 50's or higher.

Yes..so I have missed what's going on at my house.I am planning to go home this weekend and by then the freeze will be over...until the next one. It is supposed to get above freezing today so our hit will be much less than so much of Texas

W w warm Wednesday? hope you are in Hawaii making comments like that! It was down to 21 degrees here in Mesquite (north of Las Vegas) last night. I see over in Iraq it topped out at 51 for the day (we're 12 hours apart). Someone explain that global warming again?

Good morning, and the best to the Finest crew in America!

Good Morning :) I know, we had a warm past couple of weeks and it dropped rapidly yesterday. 13 degrees tonight.

Global warming only happens when its hot out. ;) I remember Gore went to make a speech on global warming in NYC one winter. It had been one of the brutal, coldest of winters and there was a blizzard a day before. It was so funny to me. :)

Love that little doll! I had a Sheltie and she loved the snow and was such a lovable baby! I have had two in the last 25 years and don't want another as it hurts too bad when they die. Just can't take the hurt anymore! May change my mind if a good opportunity arises.
