I want to thank my ancestors for the country that they built for us. I feel really betrayed at the last election and those that want to usurp our rights.

This is a most appropriate Hall of Heroes thread, in my opinion. I am sometimes amazed that in this crazy, depraved and God-forsaken age that this Nation still produces brave men and women willing to put themselves in hazard's way for the USA and for the Freedoms we continue to enjoy.

I served and did my job. I'm not a hero, but I take pride that I can walk among those who are heroes and feel no shame. We are Brothers and their heroic deeds ratify the soldierly virtues we all have within us and the Code we are sworn to follow. They are our champions, and we, at least I, am happy to have met some of them and seen those of them in my own outfit in action.

There are few things in life more impressive than seeing one of our highly trained, professional and courageous boys or girls do their stuff.

God Bless them all - God keep them under his healing wings - God save the United States of America!

Falling Short

November 19, 2012

One of the fads of 1970s America was the motorcycle jump. This trend reached its high (and low) point on September 8, 1974. Thousands of spectators gathered around the Snake River Canyon in Idaho to see if Evel Knievel could jump across the chasm in a specially designed “sky cycle.” In the end, however, it was unsuccessful. Knievel made it only part of the way across the gulf before his parachute deployed and he dropped to the canyon floor below. Some spectators asked, “How far across the canyon did he get?” But that wasn’t the point. He didn’t make it all the way across, so he fell short of his goal.

This scene is a good illustration of sin. The Bible talks about sin in Romans 3:23, where Paul declared, “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” No one is capable of bridging the gap between God and ourselves by our own efforts, but the Savior came to do just that on our behalf. Christ perfectly fulfilled God’s standards, then gave His life on the cross to pay for our failure and wrongdoing. Where we could only fall short, Christ’s work, offered in love, accomplished all that was needed.

Our response is to trust Him and receive this matchless gift of salvation.

There is no other name on earth
By whom salvation’s given
Save Jesus Christ the Lamb of God,
God’s precious gift from heaven. —Stairs
The cross of Christ bridges the gap
we could never cross on our own.

Read: Romans 3:19-28

All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. —Romans 3:23
Bible in a Year:
Romans 1-4

Chat up the military or a family member.
No need to fret...you know I'll be back!

pancakes, conversation, silliness,
and plain old BS
