Which Way?

December 11, 2012

Asking directions is not my favorite thing to do. I always feel that if I stay at it long enough I’ll eventually find my way. My wife, Martie, on the other hand, is always quick to ask directions and incredulous about my unwillingness to admit that I don’t have a clue about where I’m going. In the end, she is the wiser one. She gets to her destination quickly and without angst while I end up getting lost.

Thinking that we are smart enough to navigate life on our own goes contrary to the warning of Scripture that tells us, “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death” (Prov. 16:25). When we are at a fork in the road, we need to stop and consult the ways of the Lord, “for the ways of the Lord are right” (Hos. 14:9).

Life is a directional enterprise. It’s vitally important to know how to successfully direct our lives toward blessed and peaceful relationships, meaningful acts of love and service, a fulfilling experience with God, and a host of other vitally important destinations.

Asking God for directions isn’t just a good idea—it’s critical. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart . . . and He shall direct your paths” (Prov. 3:5-6).

Lord, I surrender my stubborn tendency to do life on
my own terms. Teach me that my “want to’s” lead to
dead-end streets and that Your wisdom will keep me
on the road to all that is good and fruitful. Amen.
Ask God for directions because He knows the way.

Read: Hosea 14

The ways of the Lord are right; the righteous walk in them. —Hosea 14:9
Bible in a Year:
1 Timothy 4-6

I spent 1977 to 1981 at WPAFB. Lots of things happened there in those four years. The tanker wing had an annual event where they took spouses for a ride in a KC135. One of them augured in and it was discovered that one of the wives had the stick. That ended that nonsense. One of my friends got stuck in the US Embassy in Iran for 444 days—thanks to the fool Jimmie Carter. Jimmie Carter tried to allow Dayton to annex the base, thus securing the civilian employees’ salaries for Dayton income tax. fortunately for my civilian compatriots that failed. it was an eventful four years.

Less than 2 Miles from my house! I have been several times. Don’t forget to visit the Presidential section. ( you have to catch a bus to take you to the other side of the runway.) They have Kennedy AF1. lots of history here.

The museum has a great collection of USAF and some from our allies in past wars. It is funded by donations, not the government. Please visit and please give a donation as admission is free.

They have a lot of top secret UFO stuff there too. Most people think it’s at Area 51, but that’s just a ruse. ;)

I would LOVE to go to the Air Force Museum at Wright-Patt!...and I know Mr. LUV would, since he was in the AF himself!

Thanks, galz, for this great thread!

Are you ready for the Tuesday

Road Trip?

Good morning, Everyone.

Good morning to our

military, our allies, and their families

Thank you, Lauren, for preparing the Canteen for today’s activities.

DC Metroland Weather

~ Today...A few sprinkles possible early.
Cloudy skies early,
followed by partial clearing.
High 53F. Winds NNW at 10 to 15 mph.

~ Tonight...Mostly cloudy skies.
Low 36F. Winds N at 5 to 10 mph.

Woke up to a cold, rainy morning.
I believe I told youz guyz out west
not to send the cold. Didn't I?
Don't mind the rain but unlike Ma I don't like the cold.

Well, I'm hoping to be around more today.
Got the reports done and only need to update one more.
But, if I suddenly disappear (which seems to be the norm)
you'll know I got pulled away by work.


Please stay.

Grab a cup of joe or tasty tea.

The FR Canteen is ALWAYS

Come on in and sit for a while.
There's always plenty of coffee, tea,
pancakes,
conversation,
silliness,
and plain old BS

REMEMBER THEM ~ DEFENDERS OF FREEDOM

Hi Kathy! ((HUGS!!)) I was at Wright Patt in the early 80’s. It is a great base. Fantastic mission, fantastic people and the weather sucks about 80% of the time.
