Serving The Best Troops and Veterans In The World !! | The Canteen Crew

WHAT I'VE LEARNED FROM LIFE


“I’ve learned that although it’s hard to admit, I’m secretly glad by parents are strict with me.” (Age 14)

“I’ve learned that silent company is often more healing than words of advice.” (Age 24)

“I’ve learned that the greater a person’s sense of guilt, the greater the need to cast blame on others.” (Age 16)

“I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you miss them terribly after they die.” (Age 53)

“I’ve learned that making a living is not the same as making a life.” (Age 58)

“I’ve learned that if you pursue happiness, it will elude you. But if you focus on your family, the needs of others, your work, meeting new people, and doing the very best you can, happiness will find you.”

“I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with kindness, I usually make the right decision.” (Age 66)

“I’ve learned that when I have pains, I don’t have to be one.” (Age 82)

“I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn.” (Age 92)

A Blessed Lord’s Day to you and yours! Thank you very much for tonight’s Sunday Chapel thread.

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)

When Fear Creeps In

November 25, 2012

When my daughter exclaimed, “Mommy, a bug!” I looked where she was pointing and saw the largest spider I have ever encountered outside of a pet shop. Both the spider and I knew that he would not be allowed to stay in our house. And yet, as I faced him, I found I could not take one step closer to end the standoff. My pulse quickened. I swallowed and gave myself a pep-talk. Still, fear kept me frozen in place.

Fear is powerful; it can override logical thinking and produce irrational behavior. Thankfully, Christians don’t have to let fear of anything—people, situations, or even spiders—rule our actions. We can declare, “Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in [God]” (Ps. 56:3).

Taking this stand against fear is consistent with the Bible’s instruction to “trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding” (Prov. 3:5). Our own understanding may lead us to overestimate the object of our fear and underestimate God’s power. When we are afraid, we can depend on God’s understanding (Isa. 40:28) and trust in His love for us that “casts out fear” (1 John 4:18). The next time fear creeps into your life, don’t panic. God can be trusted in the darkness.

Into His hands I lay the fears that haunt me,
The dread of future ills that may befall;
Into His hands I lay the doubts that taunt me,
And rest securely, trusting Him for all. —Christiansen
Trusting God’s faithfulness dispels our fearfulness.

Read: Psalm 56

Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in [God]. —Psalm 56:3
Bible in a Year:
1 Corinthians 9-12

This story needs to be spread as far as FR can spread it.

We have a Soldier in dire need. And the gov’t will not provide full transportation home for this injured Soldier. US House and Senators need contacting ASAP! this is an outrage!

Yes, have been resting most of the day. Took my son to work and ran a couple of errands at 5:00 p.m. I'm going to hit the hay in a little while and watch Notre Dame vs. USC.

He Who blessed our forefathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob - may He bless the fighters of the Israel Defense Force, who stand guard over our land and the cities of our G-d from the border of the Lebanon to the desert of Egypt, and from the Great Sea unto the approach of the Aravah, on the land, in the air, and on the sea.

May HASHEM cause the enemies who rise up against us to be struck down before them. May the Holy One, Blessed is He, preserve and rescue our fighting men from every trouble and distress and from every plague and illness, and may He send blessing and success in their every endeavor.

May He lead our enemies under their sway and may He grant them salvation and crown them with victory. And may there be fulfilled for them the verse: For it is Hashem, your G-d, Who goes with you to battle your enemies for you to save you.

G-d bless and keep your children safe, Alouette.

Evening Ma, had a great Thanksgiving with all the Pro family at my sister's place in Washington. Just got done playing cards and watching a whole lot of football. My beloved Oregon State Beavers lost :-(

How were things your way?

A Blessed Lord’s Day to you and yours, Pro...((HUGS))

How is your family doing? Glad you had a great Thanksgiving. Sorry about Oregon State.

Things are going one day at a time here....my Dad has taken a couple falls, one taking us to the ER. He has a walker, but it is a constant struggle to get him to use it. And pretty much all he wants to do is sleep. This creates a problem as he has been getting up between 4a and 5a and wandering and I’ve caught him making eggs for breakfast. Him cooking is fine, but not without someone as back up to make sure the burner is off, etc, and without his walker, and at 4 in the morning. He seems to think it’s a game at times when I ask him where is his walker.

And right now it is 5F. We only have a little bit of snow.
