Sail Boldly and Poudly.
Good evening and thanks for the Tribute to Our Troops.
It is very cool to be able to see that red, white, and blue.
Hope your Monday went well, and your commute was safe and uneventful. *HUGS*
I’m going out to start my car. Back in a couple minutes.
The expression red tape describes the annoying way that bureaucracy prevents things from getting done. Originally, the phrase referred to the common practice of binding official documents with red ribbon. In the early 1800s, the term was popularized by the writings of Scottish historian Thomas Carlyle, who was protesting governmental foot-dragging. Following the American Civil War, the problem of red tape resurfaced as war veterans struggled to receive their benefits. The term denotes frustration and disappointment because of the burdensome hurdles it erects to accomplishing goals.
Bureaucratic red tape is almost legendary, but there is one place in the universe where its never an issuethe throne of God. In Romans 5:2, Paul speaks of Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand. When our hearts are broken or our lives are troubled, there is no red tape hindering our access to God. Jesus Christ has paved the way so that we can have access to enter boldly into the presence of the King of heaven (Heb. 4:16).
Remember, when your heart is hurting, you dont have to cut through a lot of red tape to present your needs to God. Through Christ, we have full and immediate access.
Read: Romans 5:1-8
Good evening, Luv...a BIG boat trip. LOL!
Lauren is SWAMPED at work for the whole month and more.
Back for a few...NOT a happy car. I forgot to go out at noon and start it.
I had a feeling she was. I wish she would have a chance to slow down just a bit! That gal works WAY too hard! :)
Yep. -56 was the coldest on my last tour here.
We almost made it this morning.
We should see that type of weather in April, I hope.
Aloha and good afternoon, Hawaii...((HUGS))
Hope you had a sunny day. The sun was here for a bit, but mostly below zero.
I am off for home!
