Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

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)

Fully Equipped

January 7, 2013

Karl Elsener, a Swiss designer of surgical equipment in the 19th century, worked for years on perfecting a military knife. Today his Swiss Army Knife is associated with excellence in blades and a variety of utilities. One model includes knife blades, a saw, scissors, a magnifying glass, a can opener, a screwdriver, a ruler, a toothpick, a writing pen, and more—all in one knife! If you are out camping in the wild, this one item can certainly make you feel equipped for survival.

We need something to equip us to survive spiritually in this sinful world. God has given us His Word, a kind of spiritual knife for the soul. Paul writes: “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Tim. 3:16-17).

The word translated equipped means to “furnish or fit completely.” How does the Bible equip us for life’s journey? It provides spiritual truth in doctrine; reproof in showing our imperfections; correction by revealing our sinful failures; and instruction in living a righteous life. There’s not a more valuable tool than God’s Word to make us fully equipped for spiritual survival and personal growth.

Lord, thank You for equipping us with Your
inspired Word. You’ve given us the tools we
need to live for You. Help us to take time to read
it and to follow what You tell us. Amen.
The Bible contains the nutrients we need for a healthy soul.

Read: 2 Timothy 3:14-17

All Scripture is given by inspiration of God . . . that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. —2 Timothy 3:16-17
Bible in a Year:
Genesis 18-19; Matthew 6:1-18

Good morning, Canteen.

Good morning to our

Military, our Allies, and their families.

Thank you, Star, for preparing the Canteen for today’s activities.
KUDOS and thank you go out to
David Kingsley
for his service and sacrifice.

And remembrance of the lost Bulgarian family ~

"While the story of Kingsley's sacrifice was memorialized in America,
it's rarely mentioned that the crash killed
members of a Bulgarian family on the ground".

DC Metroland weather report

~ Today... Some clouds this morning will give way
to generally sunny skies for the afternoon.
High around 45F. Winds NNW at 10 to 15 mph.

~ Tonight...Mainly clear.
Low 31F. Winds light and variable.

We're in for a warming trend!
I love, love, love winters like this!
Sorry northerners...hehe.

Going to take advantage of it and go for after-lunch walks.

UGH! I'm getting the dreaded time-out.
If this keeps up it'll shorten my FR time!

Right now I'm going to make my rounds
before someone shows up and wants something.

Or before I get tired of the time-outs!

But please stay right where you are.
Chat up the military or a family member.
No need to fret...you know I'll be back!

The FR Canteen is

Come 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

FR CANTEEN MISSION STATEMENT

Showing support and boosting the morale of our military and our allied military and the family members of the above. Honoring those who have served before.

The David R Kingsley Memorial greets us every morning just beyond the front gate at Kingsley Field. The memorial is made of actual wreckage from his B-17 retrieved from Bulgaria. We also got to tour his former fiancee around the base.
