You Should Visit the Statue of Liberty
Bold and adventure loving, life is one big party for you. And you celebrate early and often.
Happy and upbeat, you are always optimistic. It's about what you have... not about what you don't.

When times get tough, you get philosophical. You never forget the meaning of life.
You tend to avoid commitments, preferring to keep your life free from responsibilities.

You Should Visit the Taj Mahal
You're very kind, gentle, and empathetic. You can't help but feel whatever others are feeling.
You find it easy to give to others selflessly. It makes you happy to make others happy.

You don't try to understand the world around you... it just comes naturally.
You have a vivid imagination, and it's so deep that it's hard to express with words.

Aloha again Night Owl! ((HUGS))

Watching the convention and waiting for my son to come down for some fishing.....both positive and theraputic so far.

No relatives are in Isaac's path and it isn't even making landfall until tomorrow morning. But news folks must like standing in the rain for film before they head back to dinneer and comfy motel for the evening.

Good luck RINO hunting....hope you bag a few.

You Should Visit the Great Wall of China
You like esoteric things. You find that there can be a lot of beauty in weirdness.
You're a daydreamer who sees the big picture. You enjoy broad strokes as much as little details.

You don't set any rules or expectations for yourself. You're just going to let life happen.
You are always the observer. You sometimes rather watch what's going on than be a part of it.

YOU SHOULD VISIT THE STATUE OF LIBERTY!



Lady Liberty!

Lady Liberty has greeted countless of our immigrants, and countless of our returning soldiers, sailors, and airmen over the years.

“Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!."


I say the same now as I said a half-century ago: Let those who want to join our American Nation enter – Let them put their blood into the Melting Pot into which all of us have given our blood, both in the bed and on the battlefield.

Let them enter legally, as my ancestors entered over two centuries ago!!

E Pluribus Unam!





Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

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)

Freep mail me to be on or off the Daily Bread ping list


Until You Are Full

August 28, 2012

A friend who lives in Singapore told me about an old Chinese greeting. Instead of “How are you?” people would ask “Have you eaten until you are full?” The greeting likely originated during a time when food was scarce and many people did not know when they would have their next meal. When food was available, it was advisable to eat until they were full.

After Jesus miraculously fed 5,000 people with five loaves and two small fish (John 6:1-13), the crowd followed Him wanting more (vv.24-26). The Lord told them not to work for physical food that spoils, but “for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you . . . . I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst” (vv.27,35).

As followers of Jesus, we should help those who lack adequate physical nutrition. And with all, we can share the good news that our hunger for inner peace, forgiveness, and hope can be satisfied by knowing Christ the Lord.

Jesus Christ, the bread of life, invites us to come to Him for His feast for the soul, urging us to eat until we are full.

Thank You, Jesus, that You call out to those
who are weary and thirsty and say, “Come to Me
and be filled.” We are hungry and are thankful
that You satisfy us. Amen.
There is a longing in every heart that only Jesus can satisfy.

Read: John 6:25-29

I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst. —John 6:35
Bible in a Year:
Jeremiah 37-39

Great message, Conor.

My two grandfathers arrived in the late 1800’s from Sweden and Denmark. I’m so proud of them becoming naturalized citizens and passing that citizenship on to their sons and daughters.

I have a book that one of my grandparents used to study to become US Citizens. So proud of them!
