REST IN PEACE, FALLEN BROTHER!



Cpl. John James Smith, Australian Army, Special Operations Engineer Regiment, KIA Afghanistan 23Oct2012

I have fought a good fight,
I have finished my course,
I have kept the faith.
2 Timothy 4:7 (KJV)


God Of Our Fathers



Flowers of the Forest



Rest in Peace, fallen brother, rest in peace!
We who remain hold you in high honor.
Rest, fallen brother, in this sacred precinct;
We who remain keep this place sacred.
Rest, fallen brother, among these, your comrades;
We who remain keep the watch.
Rest, fallen brother, among these who answered the Nation’s call;
We who remain press the fight forward in your name.
Rest, fallen brother, lay down thy burden;
We who remain have taken up the torch.
Rest in Peace, fallen brother, rest in eternal peace!

Good evening, AZ, and thanks for the “white” Tribute to Our Troops.

Hope you had an easy commute. Any critters lately? *HUGS*

Headed home via Lowes for another grab bar. Then home to be frustrated in my own chair.

I thought these delays only occurred during the debates but now that assumption is debatable.

Drizzly. cool and uninviting out there today....much like the news. And yes Lonesome Plover is here already......he didn't have to pass through TSA and had an incident free flight.

A Fresh Glimpse Of Glory

October 25, 2012

Every summer, thousands of Good Morning America viewers cast their votes to select “The Most Beautiful Place in America.” I was delighted when the winner for 2011 was announced—Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore in my home state of Michigan. Admittedly, I didn’t expect the winning location to be in my own backyard. It reminded me of the time my wife, Martie, and I visited Niagara Falls. A man nearby watched our tourist behavior and quipped, “Ain’t nothin’ to it. I see it every day.”

How easily we grow accustomed to our surroundings and dulled to things that are familiar—even places and experiences that once brought great delight. Although God’s glory is clearly displayed all around us, sometimes the busyness of everyday life blocks our view. We take for granted His amazing work in our lives. We lose the wonder of the cross. We forget the privilege of being His child. We neglect the pleasure of His presence and miss the beauty of His creation.

I love the psalmist’s declaration: “I will meditate on the glorious splendor of Your majesty, and on Your wondrous works” (Ps. 145:5). Let’s take time today to meditate on God’s “wondrous works” and get a fresh glimpse of His glory!

For the beauty of each hour
Hill and vale and tree and flower,
Lord of all, to Thee we raise
This our hymn of grateful praise. —Pierpoint
If created things are so utterly lovely, how gloriously beautiful must be He who made them! —Antony of Padua
div>

Read: Psalm 145:1-13

I will meditate on the glorious splendor of Your majesty, and on Your wondrous works. —Psalm 145:5
Bible in a Year:
Mark 14-16
