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!

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

Good evening, Luv...((HUGS))...just finished an hour + on the phone with the Mac lady. I think we got my Mom’s computer cleaned up and in better working order. It hasn’t had anything done with it in 2 years.

And after all the clean up, and several rebootings, the printer seems to be working. The Mac lady found several issues that needed to be dealt with. Looks like we may have to upgrade because the OS X version she has won’t allow iChat, where the guru can dial right into her computer.

I think a job well done. My Mom HAS to have the outlet of her computer...her link to the outside world: genealogy and her friends.

SOUP FOR THE TROOPS

WELCOME TO THE

(where our troops, allies and their families can refresh themselves)

Good morning, Everyone.
Good morning to our

Military, our Allies, and their families.

Thank you, Ma, for preparing the Canteen for today's activities
Another nice visit with the troops.

DC METROLAND WEATHER

~ Today...Some clouds this morning will give way
to generally sunny skies for the afternoon.
High around 75F. Winds E at 5 to 10 mph.

~ Tonight...Partly cloudy skies this evening
will become overcast overnight.
Areas of fog developing with patchy drizzle possible.
Low around 60F. Winds E at 5 to 10 mph.

Soooo, we have to keep an eye on Sandy.
Long term predictions is that she may veer
toward the MD/VA or DE/NY
area early next week.

Making Z Zoup
A sprinkle of this...a splash of that...

Tourists visiting Iceland should know
that tipping at a restaurant is considered an insult.
(any Icelander FReepers who can confirm this one?)

High temperatures can make rubber or plastic grips
on tennis, golf, or racquetball equipment totally unusable.
Avoid storing racquets or golf clubs
in your vehicle's trunk, particularly during the summer.

Because of their acute sense of smell,
dogs are trained to sniff out everything from drugs to bombs to iron ore.
In Ontario, Canada, instruments couldn’t locate where natural gas
was escaping from a pipeline buried 18 feet underground.
Trained German shepherds were brought in.
The dogs worked in sub-zero temperatures and
covered nearly 100 miles of frozen ground,
ultimately finding more than 150 gas leaks.

It has been estimated that at least a million meteors
have hit the Earth's land surface,
which is only 25 percent of the planet.
Every last trace of more than 99 percent of the craters
thus formed has vanished, erased by wind, water,
and living things.

The Himalayan scenes in the 1937 Lost Horizon,
director Frank Capra later revealed,
were shot with real snow and real ice —
inside a huge cold-storage warehouse.

The FR Canteen is ALWAYS

OPEN

I'll be around for a bit this morning.
Waiting for walk buddy to show.
But, if FR starts with this "time out" thing again...
Please stay right where you are.
Keep the troops entertained and the Canteen clean...
Cause...if you don't...I'll tell Ma!
