REQUEST PERMISSION TO COME ABOARD



CHARLESTOWN, Mass. (Jan. 14, 2008) The first major snowfall of the New Year blankets the USS Constitution. Despite the weather “Old Ironside,” remained open for free public tours. At 210-years-old, USS Constitution is the oldest commissioned warship afloat in the world, manned by 67 active-duty United States Sailors and visited by nearly half a million visitors annually.

Wholesome Words

January 23, 2013

A while back, an Emmy award-winning actress took a courageous stand and walked out in the middle of the Annual American Music Awards ceremony. Her reason? She grew increasingly upset and disappointed by what she described as “an onslaught of lewd jokes and off-color remarks” and raw and raunchy comments by presenters, performers, and hosts. She said the evening was an affront to anyone with a shred of dignity and self-respect.

Unwholesome speech was a problem even in the apostle Paul’s day. He reminded the Christians at Ephesus that they should put away vulgarity, lewdness, slander, and obscene talk from their lives (Eph. 5:4; Col. 3:8). These were expressions of their old lives (1 Cor. 6:9-11), and it was now out of place with their new identity in Christ. Instead, their lives were to be characterized by wholesome speech. Their good or wholesome words would give grace to the hearers (Eph. 4:29). The Holy Spirit would help guard their speech, convict of any filthy talk, and help them to use words to benefit others (John 16:7-13).

We are called to reflect God with all we are, and that includes our words. May our mouths be filled with thanksgiving and words that benefit others.

Holy Spirit, we need Your help. Guard our hearts
and minds today. Help us control our thoughts and
words so that we might lift others up and show them
who You are and what You’ve done in us. Amen.
Wholesome words flow out of a life made new.

Read: Ephesians 4:25-32

Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers. —Ephesians 4:29
Bible in a Year:
Exodus 7-8; Matthew 15:1-20

Your Summer Ride is a Toyota Prius
Sure you're a little sensible and quite green...
But no one enjoys outdoors more than you do!

Actually, I would like the Moped better,
backroads in the mountains
City, not so much

Hi Kathy

I’m a jeep. I love hanging out with my old college friends. Even though it’s been 30 years, we get along like it was yesterday. They are like brothers to me.

Well, I didn’t take the test but my summer, autumn, winter, spring ride is my maroon ‘89 Mustang Convertible. Top down in the warm weather and when it gets super hot I turn on the AC. I’ve owned this car since ‘91 and have no desire to sell it. I’ve replaced the top once and have a few maintenance issues I must address and it needs a new paint job.

Salute to all my fellow Veterans and all active duty
Armed Forces Personell. I couldn’t be more proud of each and everyone.

What's Your Summer Ride?

I mean, come on. I love summer but I see myself in
an Audi convertible, or
a Camaro convertible, or
a BA pickup truck with the windows down...
but a Beetle? Maybe for work and gas mileage.

Going to move into lurker mode.
Still have a few things to catch up on before Friday.

But, please stay right where you are.
Keep the troops and their families entertained.

The Canteen is

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