A Few of FR's Finest....Every Day....03-21-07....Warm Fuzzy Wednesday
March 21, 2007 | Billie

Posted on 03/21/2007 7:21:16 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.
On Mondays please visit us to see photos of A FEW OF FR'S VETERANS AND ACTIVE MILITARY










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!

An Atheist’s Witness

READ: 1 John 3:11-18

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. —Matthew 22:37

Aware that love of God and neighbor is a central teaching of Scripture, I did my doctoral dissertation on “The Concept of Love in the Psychology of Sigmund Freud.” I learned that though this influential thinker had no faith in God, he stressed the supreme importance of love.

Freud wrote, for example, that the best way to “escape from the cares of life” and “forget real misery” is to follow the path “that expects all satisfaction to come from loving and being loved.” On this point, Freud was in agreement with the Bible, which focuses on love.

Scripture teaches that “God is love” (1 John 4:8). It also teaches the importance of “faith working through love” (Gal. 5:6). So the great problem we all face is how to rid ourselves of sinful self-love while sincerely loving God and neighbor (Matt. 22:37-39; 1 John 3:14). The gospel with its message of the life-transforming love of Christ provides the only answer to that problem. Paul declared in Romans 5:5, “The love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit.”

Have you experienced the infilling of God’s love? Only when you trust Jesus as Savior will the Holy Spirit of love begin to flow in and through you.

Love divine, all loves excelling,
Joy of heaven to earth come down;
Fix in us Thy humble dwelling,
All Thy faithful mercies crown.  —Wesley

God pours His love into our hearts to flow out to others.

Good Afternoon Meg, How are you feeling today? I hope your back is not hurting.

It's very nice today. There are birds everywhere. The rabbit I told you we saw, may be living under our deck. I suspect, maybe babies. I put out some bunny hay and some food. I love living here. ;) The call I hear at night may be a spring toad.

How fun!
;) Bet the bunnies love your garden..

The back is OK right now..and I am not going to do anything to change that today...That means limiting computer time,too.:(

The sun peeks in and out and I have the ceiling fans going.

My dandelions are flourishing..LOL..Next week I'll go after the yard after my back gets a few days rest.

I am so glad you love your new home! I enjoy "night sounds".

Hi there! Thanks, Texagirl - I can't remember when I found that little 'raining cats and dogs' pic, but also think it's pretty cute.

Actually NOT raining here, but YIKES! looking at the road this morning when I woke up, think our sprinkler system was out of control when it came on in the early morning hours.
