FR CANTEEN MISSION STATEMENT

Showing support and boosting the morale
of our military and our allied military

Honoring those who have served before.

MUSIC NIGHT
To keep you all in the mood
for the music thread
Fabulous FRiday presents

JIMI HENDRIX

Born Johnny Allen Hendrix on November 27, 1942
in Seattle, Washington.
He was one of five children.

After initial success in Europe
with his group The Jimi Hendrix Experience,
Hendrix achieved fame in the United States following
his 1967 performance at the Monterey Pop Festival.

He is widely considered to be the
greatest electric guitarist in music history

Hendrix was considered one of the most
influential musicians of his era
despite mainstream exposure limited to four years.

Hendrix won several prestigious rock music awards
during his lifetime, and many more posthumously.

TRIVIA

In early life, Hendrix got into trouble
with the law twice for riding in stolen cars.

He was given a choice between spending two years in prison
or joining the Army.
Hendrix chose the latter and enlisted on May 31, 1961.

After basic training, he was assigned to the 101st Airborne Division
and stationed in Fort Campbell, Kentucky.

Private Hendrix received an honourable
discharge on the basis of
"unsuitability" on June 29, 1962.

Hendrix was well known for his unique
sense of fashion and wardrobe
and his Dylan-esque (c. 1966) hairstyle.

Early on September 18, 1970,
Jimi Hendrix died in London.

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.

Hendrix might be a great guitarist, but watching him perform was painful! I guess it was the drugs, because he didn’t really make much sense....to me.... :)

Still a GREAT thread! I guess he was an icon to lots of fans!

Howdy, Kathy! I think it’s good to go for a while. John spent hours working on it to make sure! :)

Weather....88 right now and dry. I’ll do my second hour of watering in about 30 minutes. I’m kinda tired of it, but mustn’t let our lawn completely die!

Stay safe on your drive home. 70 sounds like heaven right now. :)

Blunders To Wonders

July 20, 2012

Artist James Hubbell says, “Mistakes are gifts.” Whenever he’s working on a project and something goes wrong, he doesn’t start over. He looks for a way to use the mistake to make something better. None of us can avoid making blunders, and all of us have favorite ways of dealing with them. We may try to hide them or to correct them or to apologize for them.

We do that with our sin sometimes too. But God doesn’t throw us away and start over. He redeems us and makes us better.

The apostle Peter tended to do and say whatever seemed best at the moment. He has been referred to as an “impetuous blunderer.” In his fear after Jesus was arrested, Peter claimed three times that he didn’t know Jesus! Yet later, on the basis of Peter’s three declarations of love, Jesus turned Peter’s humiliating denial into a wonderful occasion of restoration (John 21). Despite Peter’s flawed past, Jesus restored him to ministry with these words: “Feed My sheep” (v.17).

If you have made a “blunder” so big that it seems irreversible, the most important matter is whether you love Jesus. When we love Him, Jesus can turn our most serious blunders into awesome wonders.

Lord, I’m so human and make foolish mistakes.
And worse yet, I willfully sin against You.
Please forgive me, change me, restore me,
and use me for Your name’s sake. Amen.
God can change our blunders into wonders.

Read: John 21:15-19

Turn us back to You, O Lord, and we will be restored. —Lamentations 5:21
Bible in a Year:
Proverbs 29-31

It may come as a surprise, but in Las Vega it is noral to find casino chips in collection basket at church services. This happens so frequently that the Catholic Church has a system worked out. Since the chips are from various casinos, the chips are sent to a nearby Monastery to be sorted. They are then returned to the casino of origin The is done by the Chip Monks.

Last race was great! Good turnout both for entries AND workers; I worked a total of three sessions for all two days I was there.

Furbabies are doing well. We got Janis to her new home a couple weeks ago, where her new daddy says she promptly took over! Patch was a little unhappy for a couple days, but she got over it.
