You Are 64% Creative
You are beyond creative. You are a true artist - even if it's not in the conventional sense of the word.
You love creating for its own sake, and you find yourself quite inspired at times.

Well, the test says I'm only '75 percent' creative.

But, I've created a lot of jewelry that sold like hotcakes, and I've built lots of weird machinery to get things done around my domains.

I suppose that if I could only create more time to create... maybe I could really be 100 percent creative. Maybe after I retire! LOL

YOU ARE THE QUINTESSANCE OF CREATIVITY!



Ad Astra Per Aspera!

You specialize in turning adversity into opportunity.

You stride into the midst of Chaos, work your Art, and leave Order and Serenity in your wake.

Faced with a daunting predicament, you improvise, adapt, and overcome.

When confronted with a setback, you regroup, adjust, and win through to Victory!





Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

A fairly uneventful day. Our Project Lead goes on vacation tomorrow for two weeks - things could get interesting - the lady he's assigned as team lead will raise some hackles. :) Break out the popcorn!

Having a good time with The Bride and the new family.

The stepdaughters made my day, when they got back from upstate visiting relations. They got me a Father’s Day card. It was truly a touching moment.

Weatherguys are calling for a major rain system coming up from Miami, rain for the rest of the week. Might blow the beach plans again.

No triple digits today, though it got close. Supposed to get
to “only” 90 degrees tomorrow. It sounds hot, but after 100+,
it’s not awful. :)

How are you coping with Alaskan summer?

GOD BLESS AND PROTECT OUR TROOPS!



TATTOO
(Click)


Must retire – the 0500 0430 Reveille approaches relentlessly. Our Taskmasters vex us with an ever-increasing burden of work. They have sequestered us in a remote chamber known only as “The Land of the Lost”, which bears a banner over the lintel stating:

“ABANDON ALL HOPE, YE WHO ENTER HERE!”

They stand and mutely watch over us as we toil hour upon hour without respite.

The Bugler, their minion, his grim visage replete with an evil sneer, already mounts the parapet.

If I can escape their iron grip, I’ll chat with you all on the morrow. I can say no more – they approach!

Do poor Tom some charity, whom the foul fiend vexes!




Good night, God bless you, and God bless the United States of America!

Godspeed our Troops around the Globe – especially those in harm’s way – by virtue of their service and sacrifice we continue to live in Freedom!

A Good Neighbor

June 20, 2012

In June 2011, when disastrous flood- waters chased residents of Minot, North Dakota, from their homes, the people of that community did what seemed to come naturally to them—they helped others who were in need. People from more than an hour away, without being asked, showed up to help. Some loaned their campers to those who lost their homes and others allowed their garages to be used for temporary storage. The people of North Dakota were showing what it means to be good neighbors.

As followers of Christ, being good neighbors—showing love to others—should come naturally to us as well (Matt. 22:39; John 13:35; 1 John 4:7-11). Even though we may not have the opportunity to respond in a dramatic way to a natural disaster, we can all look for ways to love those around us. To be good neighbors, we can show others mercy (Luke 10:29-37), treat others fairly (Lev. 19:13-18; James 2:1-8), speak to others truthfully (Eph. 4:25), and forgive others completely (Eph. 4:32; Col. 3:13).

Christians can be the best neighbors around because our love for others flows out of the life of the ultimate neighbor—Jesus Christ—who loved and sacrificed His life for us.

Oh, to be like Him, tender and kind,
Gentle in spirit, lowly in mind;
More like to Jesus, day after day,
Filled with His Spirit now and alway. —Ellsworth
Our love for Christ is only as real as our love for our neighbor.

Read: Luke 10:29-37

Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. —1 John 4:11
Bible in a Year:
Psalms 79-81
