FReeper Canteen ~ Sunday Chapel ~ YOU WILL NEVER BE SORRY FOR ....... ~ 02 October 2011
Serving The Best Troops and Veterans In The World !! | The Canteen Crew

Posted on 10/01/2011 5:03:16 PM PDT by Kathy in Alaska


 

 

 

 

YOU WILL NEVER BE SORRY FOR.....

thinking before speaking,
hearing before judging,
forgiving your enemies,
being candid and frank,
helping a fallen friend,
being honest in your work,
standing by your principles,
blocking your ears to gossip,
being courteous and kind.

Thank you, Kathy. Hope that these two poems from Van Dyke will bless your weekend and that of all who read them. Recommend others also.

Four Things


"FOUR things a man must learn to do
If he would make his record true:
To think without confusion clearly;
To love his fellow man sincerely;
To act from honest motives purely;
To trust in God and Heaven securely."

Henry Van Dyke

America For Me


"'TIS fine to see the Old World and travel up and down
Among the famous palaces and cities of renown,
To admire the crumbling castles and the statues and kings
But now I think I've had enough of antiquated things.

"So it's home again, and home again, America for me!
My heart is turning home again and there I long to be,
In the land of youth and freedom, beyond the ocean bars,
Where the air is full of sunlight and the flag is full of stars.

"Oh, London is a man's town, there's power in the air;
And Paris is a woman's town, with flowers in her hair;
And it's sweet to dream in Venice, and it's great to study Rome;
But when it comes to living there is no place like home.

"I like the German fir-woods in green battalions drilled;
I like the gardens of Versailles with flashing fountains filled;
But, oh, to take your hand, my dear, and ramble for a day
In the friendly western woodland where Nature has her sway!

"I know that Europe's wonderful, yet something seems to lack!
The Past is too much with her, and the people looking back.
But the glory of the Present is to make the Future free--
We love our land for what she is and what she is to be.

"Oh, it's home again, and home again, America for me!
I want a ship that's westward bound to plough the rolling sea,
To the blessed Land of Room Enough, beyond the ocean bars,
Where the air is full of sunlight and the flag is full of stars."

Henry Van Dyke

Thanks, JJ...((HUGS))...she has been fighting this for at least the last couple years. Her breathing had become more and more labored. Now she is in heaven and pain free and breathing without effort.

"And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof." -from THE BIBLE: Romans 13:11-14

I just received this one in, and thought others might wish to view it and pass it on. It is about the success of the marxists/communists’ agenda to destroy America by grinding her down for at least the past 50 years. Many here are already familiar with this history, but it is a wonderful (brief!) recap and reminder of the precarious state we are in.

God bless our troops and our true allies!
