You Are Steady

You value your own opinion over the opinions of others. You know when you’re right.
You trust your intuition. So far it has a good track record of not leading you astray.

You prefer logical to emotional appeals. You like well structured arguments.
You are very clean and tidy. You take pride in taking good care of your possessions.

It’s a wonder I’m still married.

YOU ARE A 1933 DUESENBERG SJ!



The Mightiest Motor Car Of The Age!

You are a proud product of the United States of America!

Born of American ingenuity, the Duesenberg Brothers only produced thirty-two of you in all – you are truly unique!

Let the others have their Mercedes and Ferraris! As for me, I’ll stick with my American metal – seldom equaled , never surpassed!

Thanks very much, Kathy!

*HUGS*

And thanks so much for tonight's Old Fashioned Car thread! Those old cars bring back lots of memories to me - a simpler time and, I think, a better time.

I have many memories of being driven around the suburbs of West Philadelphia by my Uncle Joe, returned from WWII in Europe, in his Hudson Convertible. At three years old - I knew the routes he took well enough to give him directions home. He had fought in the Rhine Campaign in 1944 - two Purple Hearts. He also contracted trench foot in the bitter cold of the 1944-45 Winter - an affliction that would cause him pain until his death six years ago.

Don't mean to wander - my heart is full of things past this evening. My glass is lifted to my Uncle Joe, to the Fallen of 9-11, and to all who have stood up in defense of our Freedom!

You Are Charming

You have a reassuring nature. Your friends find you to be both soothing and comforting.

You deflect drama. You can get everyone laughing and smiling again.

You are both intensely alive and totally easygoing. You know how to have fun!

People gravitate toward you. You are usually the happiest person in the room.

You know...this is pretty accurate. I AM charming :-).

God bless our troops. His mercy and compassion on them and their families, and his justice on our enemies.

You Are Practical
You are a very energetic and even hyper person. You stay alert and focused.
If you're in a bad mood, the easiest way to get out of it is to distract yourself with something else.

You are both quick-witted and quick-tempered. You can be very reactive.
You are confident and brutally honest about your opinions. You have no problem being frank.

Indeed I do - I can find it on my computer but can't localize it. Luckily, I put it up on Photobucket, and here it is:



My mother, Marie Annette Sullivan Mitchell
and her Aunt, Ella Nora Gavin Cliggett
very early 1930's.

No finer ladies than these ever trod the earth.

Somewhere among thousands of family photos we have a picture I took on 13Sept2001 of our three boys, Daniel, David and John, standing in our front yard waiting for the school bus, returning to school after the shutdown caused by 9/11. Each one of them is wearing an American Flag shirt, probably from Old Navy, but where ever it came from, no matter. They didn't know then what the significance was, but they know now!

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


Good & Plenty

September 12, 2012

I have to admit that I’ve got a sweet tooth. Of all the candies I love, Good & Plenty is near the top of the list. Life is good when I have a handful of those luscious, sugar-coated licorice pieces!

There are a lot of good things in life. But like a feast of Good & Plenty, the goodness is soon over. Even the best of the good things can afterward leave us feeling empty and even regretful. So when the psalmist declares, “I said to the Lord, ‘You are my Lord, apart from You I have no good thing’” (Ps. 16:2 niv), I am intrigued. We all know that God is good. But when was the last time we embraced Him as the ultimate good in our life?

The psalmist explains just how good God really is: He is our preserver (v.1), our total goodness-giver (v.2), our counsel and instruction (v.7), and the One who makes known “the path of life” and fills us with joy in His presence (v.11). Now that’s what I call good!

Unfortunately, too often we let lesser “goods” eclipse our acceptance of the everlasting goodness of God in our lives. The fleeting nature of lesser goods will ultimately disappoint us—you can count on it. Only God is truly good! And there is plenty of Him for all we need.

Oh, taste the goodness of the Lord
And savor all that He has done;
Draw close and give your praise to Him—
The holy, sovereign, faithful One. —Sper
God alone is good. Don’t settle for second best.

Read: Psalm 16

You are my Lord, my goodness is nothing apart from You. —Psalm 16:2
Bible in a Year:
Ezekiel 28-30
