FReeper Canteen ~ Fabulous Friday
March 1, 2012 | Canteen Crew

Posted on 03/01/2012 6:05:30 PM PST by beachn4fun

FR CANTEEN MISSION STATEMENT

Showing support and boosting the morale
of our military and our allied military
and the family members of the above.
Honoring those who have served before.

Remember the Good Old Days?
Sock Hops?
Drive-in Movies?
Buddy Holly?
Or other things that made it Fabulous?
You know, before cellphones?
Come on in and share your memories.
Or take a trip back in time.

Let's start with the 1950.

First Modern Credit Card Introduced
In 1949, Frank X. McNamara thought of a way for customers
to have just one credit card that they could use at multiple stores.
McNamara discussed the idea with two colleagues
and the three pooled some money and started a new company in 1950
which they called the Diners Club.

First "Peanuts" Cartoon Strip
The very first Peanuts comic strip, written by Charles M. Schulz,
appeared in seven newspapers on October 2, 1950.

Number One Hit
8 July 1950 ~ Mona Lisa ~ (Nat "King" Cole)

here

Remember, the Canteen is a family friendly place.
We welcome the military, our allies, and their families.
Continued prayers for the success and completion of your mission.
Prayers for your safe return home.

Nos genuflectitur ad non princeps sed Princeps Pacem!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

I’m Good

March 2, 2012

When someone asks, “How are you?” it has become common for the response to be, “I’m good.” When we say this, we are really saying, “I’m well” or “I’m doing fine,” speaking of our general well-being and not our character. I have answered with that response more times than I can count, but lately it has begun to bother me. Because, whether we realize it or not, we are saying something specific when we use the word good.

Jesus once encountered a wealthy young man who called Him “Good Teacher” (Matt. 19:16). The young man was right, for Jesus is both good (completely perfect) and the Teacher. He is the only One who can truly make that claim.

The Lord, however, challenged the man to think about what he was saying in using that term good. “So He said to him, ‘Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God. But if you want to enter into life, keep the commandments’” (v.17). Jesus wanted the man to understand that the assertion he was making needed to be taken seriously. Jesus can be called “good” because He is God.

Next time someone asks you, “How are you?” it is great to be able to say, “I’m well.” But remember, only Jesus is good.

Eternal with the Father, One,
Is Jesus Christ, His own dear Son;
In Him God’s fullness we can see,
For Jesus Christ is deity. —D. De Haan
God is great and God is good, but without Him we are neither.

Read: Matthew 19:16-26

[Jesus said,] “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God. But if you want to enter into life, keep the commandments.” —Matthew 19:17
Bible in a Year:
Joshua 10-12

Marie Annette Sullivan Mitchell and Tom Mitchell, c. 1951
