A Life Of Honor

November 29, 2012

In 2010, my brothers and I celebrated our dad’s 90th birthday. We hosted an open house with great food and fellowship. In the living room, family and friends took up banjo, guitar, mandolin, fiddle, upright bass, and Irish drum to play and sing all afternoon. A big cake was prepared with this written on it in frosting: “Praise the Lord! Blessed is the man who fears the Lord—Psalm 112:1. Happy 90th birthday, Hal.”

When I later examined Psalm 112, I was impressed with how it seemed to describe my dad—who had walked with God for more than 50 years and is now at home with Him. Dad had his own share of heartaches and faults, but his steadfast faith resulted in much blessing. This psalm tells us that blessings will fall on the man who has a reverential fear of God and who delights in His commands. In response to this growing integrity and faith, God will extend blessing not only to the believer but also to his children (v.2).

This psalm challenges us to reflect an inner reverence for God and to make continual decisions to delight in following His commands. If we do that, then as we look back on our years—no matter how many or how few—we will know that God has helped us live a life of honor.

When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word,
What a glory He sheds on our way!
While we do His good will, He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey. —Sammis
If you honor God in your heart, He will be honored by your life.

Read: Psalm 112

Blessed is the man who fears the Lord, who delights greatly in His commandments. —Psalm 112:1
Bible in a Year:
2 Corinthians 7-9

REST IN PEACE, FALLEN BROTHER!



Cpl. Christopher M. Monahan, USMC, Combat Logistics Battalion 2, Combat Logistics Regiment 2, 2nd Marine Logistics Group, II Marine Expeditionary Force, KIA Afghanistan 26Mov2012



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


Eternal Father, Strong to Save

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, amid these who heeded 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!

Aloha and good afternoon, Hawaii...((HUGS))

Crisis averted here. Co-worker printing a late check got everything ready, went to pick Printer for printing said check and she has no printers to choose. BIG problem! We checked and I had my full complement of printers so I printed the needed check. Then I reprinted to the different printer needed. All done now.

Any sun yet for you? A little warmer weather? It is just plain cold here.

Hi again, Kathy! I see you're in single digits up there this afternoon - we're just below freezing here tonight: 28F with a clear sky.

My day went pretty well, thanks - got a full day in at the office. Looking forward to another weekend.

This is your crunch day, isn't it? I hope everything worked out okay!

GOD BLESS AND PROTECT OUR TROOPS!





Sir Winston S. Churchill, KG, OM, CH, TD, PC, DL, FRS, Hon. RA (30 November 1874 – 24 January 1965)



“We Shall Never Surrender”
“Even though large tracts of Europe and many old and famous States have fallen or may fall into the grip of the Gestapo and all the odious apparatus of Nazi rule, we shall not flag or fail.

We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France,
we shall fight on the seas and oceans,
we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air,
we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be,
we shall fight on the beaches,
we shall fight on the landing grounds,
we shall fight in the fields and in the streets,
we shall fight in the hills;
we shall never surrender, and even if, which I do not for a moment believe, this Island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in God’s good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old.”

In the House of Commons, 4June1940


"With Mind And Hand"



Coronet Winston S. Churchill, 4th Queen's Own Hussars, 1895

MAY ALMIGHTY GOD UPHOLD AND DEFEND THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!



This Nation is dearer to me than my own life.
I fought for it willingly and proudly, as my ancestors have done since the American Revolution, and as my family continues to do to this very day.



Memorial to Battery "C", 5th U.S. Artillery at Gettysburg, PA
My 3-greats grandfather, Cpl. William Murphy,
was wounded by shrapnel at the Clump of Trees
in Pickett’s Charge, July 3, 1863.

In my youth, I spilled my blood for it on the Field of Battle, in a far-off land, in a war that was scorned by many of my contemporaries, a war in which we were victorious in every major engagement on the field, and a war in which we were betrayed by a coterie of spineless politicos, by The Fifth Column that masquerades as the media, by Academia, and by the Hollywood elite.



In my old age, the jackals gather again, seeking once more to steal a victory won by another generation of Americans, seeking to change our Nation into a Socialist state in which we are all tools of the collective rather than free men and women, seeking by every artifice known to man to undo the American Revolution.



Though I am old and weak, I would willingly fight for our Beloved Nation once again, and, if necessary, give my life for it if doing so would advance the cause of Liberty.

I say this without boast or apology – I am no better or worse than the millions of American men and women who have answered the Nation’s call, and I am no hero. I am simply one of a multitude of Americans who did his or her duty when called upon by the Nation to do so.



We have sustained a grievous wound in this Election, the consequences of which are already apparent. Now is not the time for despair; it is not the time for surrender. Now is the time to reaffirm our core values: individual liberty, self-reliance and personal responsibility, sanctity of human life, Love of God and Country and Courage in the face of great Peril!

Many now advocate secession from the Union. Secession is not the answer, even if it could be accomplished. This is MY Country – Here I am and here I stay! I am not willing to abandon it to the Leftist traitors now in power or to any other enemies, domestic or foreign.

"Hige sceal þe heardra, heorte þe cenre,
mod sceal þe mare, þe ure mægen lytlað. "

"Will shall be the sterner, heart the keener,
spirit the greater as our strength lessens."


KNOW THIS: I will not sit idly by while Marxists, atheists, perverts and traitors work relentlessly to sabotage the heroic efforts and sacrifices of over two centuries of Patriots, to rip away our basic Freedoms, and to bring this great Nation to its knees.

May God continue to Bless and Protect the United States of America – A Beacon of Freedom shining through the darkness of a World beset by Tyranny!

May God Bless and Protect our Gallant Troops of all Services – men and women - combat and non-combat – of whatever MOS. By virtue of their service and sacrifice we continue to enjoy the benefits of Freedom!

With the help of Almighty God, may the Right and our Beloved Nation prevail!

Good morning, Mac...glad you got in a full day in at the office.
Have another good one.

Yes, Wednesday is crunch day, but I got all corrections done. It took me 90 minutes to straighten out one person’s correct pay. When you are away, you can only leave so many notes.
