Posted on 01/17/2013 6:04:26 PM PST by Kathy in Alaska

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.

Fabulous FRiday
FAVORITES

Today we're having a little change of pace.
Let's do
WHO CARES?

With so much junk on the television
and on the Internet, especially about celebrities,
I hear myself saying more often than not...WHO CARES?

For instance: Kim Kardasdain is preggers...
WHO CARES?

OR: Kim Kardasdain and Kayne West are moving in togther...
WHO CARES?

Steven Spielberg got former President Bill Clinton
to present clips of Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln."
WHO CARES?

How about: Michael Moore doesn't support our troops.
WHO CARES?

Then there's: Hugh Hefner married Crystal Harris...
WHO CARES?

Finally: Detroit mobster knows where Hoffa is buried...
WHO CARES?

Remember, the Canteen is a family friendly place.
We welcome the military, our allies, and their families.
Continued prayers for the success and completion of your mission.
Prayers for your safe return home.

You’re Necessary

January 18, 2013

The story has been told about a conductor who was rehearsing his orchestra. The organ was giving a beautiful melody, the drums were thundering, the trumpets were blaring, and the violins were singing beautifully. But the conductor noticed something missing—the piccolo. The piccolo player had gotten distracted and hoped his instrument wouldn’t be missed. The conductor reminded him: “Each one of us is necessary.”

This was essentially the same message Paul communicated to the Corinthian believers in his first letter to them (12:4-7). Every Christian plays an important role in the body of Christ. Paul gave a list of gifts of the Spirit and compared their use to the functioning of the various parts of the human body for the good of the whole (vv.8-10). The Corinthian believers may have had different cultural backgrounds, gifts, and personalities, but they were filled with the same Spirit and belonged to the same body of Christ. Paul made special mention of the parts of the body that were weak and obscure, and taught that all believers play a necessary and significant role. No one part was more necessary than any other.

Remember, Jesus has given you a significant part to play and will use you to build up His people.

The church, a living body, containing all the parts—
It lives, it moves, it functions, and touches many hearts;
When each part is committed to do the Savior’s will,
His members are united, His purpose they fulfill. —Fitzhugh
As a member of the body of Christ,
you are a necessary part of the whole.

Read: 1 Corinthians 12:14-26

But God composed the body, having given greater honor to that part which lacks it. —1 Corinthians 12:24
Bible in a Year:
Genesis 43-45; Matthew 12:24-50

An okay day at work, thanks! My upper back pain spiked in the mid-afternoon but has abated. I'm off tomorrow - also Monday. Our building is closed for the inauguration - just as well - if it were open, I'm not sure I'd I'd be able to get there with the road closures, etc.

The Star Spangled Banner – Verse Four
(Click)


Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

For sure.....WHO CARES!!

My boss’s husband fell and broke several ribs last night at the bottom of his driveway when he made it to the street covered with snow over the ice. She is stopping on her way home tonight to get him some spikies. They went to the Elmendorf AFB ER...he is retired Air Force, and they were told a 6 to 8 hour wait. So, instead, they came into Anchorage and went to Providence and it took 4 hours. So many folks are having ice problems.

Just made it home...that was an adventure in driving. The roads are slicker than snot....just horrible. After having to scrape, with a capital S, ALL my windows and then brush the snow off, several inches, I was finally able to sit inside and start to get warm. Intersections were all shiny, complete ICE.

Oops....you have to push Post.
