Rescued

January 31, 2013

Manuel Gonzalez was the first rescue worker to reach the 33 miners trapped for 69 days in a Chilean mine explosion in 2010. At great risk to his own life, he went underground more than 2,000 feet to bring the trapped men back to the surface. The world watched in amazement as one by one each miner was rescued and transported to freedom.

The Bible tells us of an even more amazing rescue. Because of Adam and Eve’s disobedience, all of mankind is trapped in sin (Gen. 2:17; 3:6,19; Rom. 5:12). Unable to break free, everyone faces certain death—physically and eternally. But God has provided a Rescuer—Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Everyone who accepts the free gift of salvation offered through His death and resurrection is freed from sin’s grip and its resulting death penalty (Rom. 5:8-11; 10:9-11; Eph. 2:1-10).

Jesus Christ is the “firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep” (1 Cor. 15:20). He was the first to be raised from the dead, never to die again. Likewise, all will be given life who put their faith in Christ (Rom. 8:11).

Are you still trapped in your sins? Accept Jesus’ gift of salvation and enjoy the freedom of life in Christ and eternity with Him (Acts 16:31; Eph. 2:1; Col. 2:13).

Thinking It Over
What keeps you from calling out to God for spiritual
rescue? Do you fear that you are too bad for God’s
grace? Read and think about Romans 3:23-26.
Through His cross, Jesus rescues and redeems.

Read: 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, 20-25

Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved. —Acts 16:31
Bible in a Year:
Exodus 25-26; Matthew 20:17-34

God bless all of you. Each and every one.

“We sleep safe in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm.”

I’m too old to actively participate but I do appreciate those young, rough men that let me and my family sleep.

Know you, enemies of my country, if you come to our shores I’ll limp out and do what I can. And that will be more than enough to push you back into the sea.

The Grey-Haired Brigade



Tonight’s posting of “The Grey-Haired Brigade” is dedicated to the gallant Navy Seal Vets, Tyrone S. Woods and Glen Doherty, who fell in combat 11Sep2012 in Benghazi, Libya.

Their valor, deeds and sacrifices remain unacknowledged by the Obama Regime, the Fifth Column and the camp-followers and useful idiots who keep them in power.

Their Heroism on behalf of our Nation demands recognition! Now, over four months from the day they gave their all in our defense, the Obama Regime has yet to address the circumstances of Benghazi!


They like to refer to us as senior citizens, old fogies, geezers, and in some cases dinosaurs. Some of us are "Baby Boomers" getting ready to retire. Others have been retired for some time. We walk a little slower these days and our eyes and hearing are not what they once were. We have worked hard, raised our children, worshiped our God and grown old together. Yes, we are the ones some refer to as being over the hill, and that is probably true. But before writing us off completely, there are a few things that need to be taken into consideration.

In school we studied English, history, math, and science which enabled us to lead America into the technological age. Most of us remember what outhouses were, many of us with firsthand experience. We remember the days of telephone party-lines, 25 cent gasoline, and milk and ice being delivered to our homes. For those of you who don't know what an icebox is, today they are electric and referred to as refrigerators. A few even remember when cars were started with a crank. Yes, we lived those days.

We are probably considered old fashioned and out-dated by many. But there are a few things you need to remember before completely writing us off. We won World War II, fought in Korea and Viet Nam . We can quote The Pledge of Allegiance, and know where to place our hand while doing so. We wore the uniform of our country with pride and lost many friends on the battlefield. We didn't fight for the Socialist States of America , we fought for the "Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave." We wore different uniforms but carried the same flag. We know the words to the Star Spangled Banner, America, and America the Beautiful by heart, and you may even see some tears running down our cheeks as we sing. We have lived what many of you have only read about in history books and we feel no obligation to apologize to anyone for America.

Yes, we are old and slow these days but rest assured, we have at least one good fight left in us. We have loved this country, fought for it, and died for it, and now we are going to save it. It is our country and nobody is going to take it away from us. We took oaths to defend America against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and that is an oath we plan to keep. There are those who want to destroy this land we love but, like our founders, there is no way we are going to remain silent.

It was mostly the young people of this nation who elected Obama and the Democratic Congress. You fell for the "Hope and Change" which in reality was nothing but "Hype and Lies." You have tasted socialism and seen evil face to face, and have found you don't like it after all. You make a lot of noise, but most are all too interested in their careers or "Climbing the Social Ladder" to be involved in such mundane things as patriotism and voting. Many of those who fell for the "Great Lie" in 2008 are now having buyer's remorse. With all the education we gave you, you didn't have sense enough to see through the lies and instead drank the 'Kool-Aid.' Now you're paying the price and complaining about it. No jobs, lost mortgages, higher taxes, and less freedom. This is what you voted for and this is what you got. We entrusted you with the Torch of Liberty and you traded it for a paycheck and a fancy house.

Well, don't worry youngsters, the Grey-Haired Brigade is here, and in 2012 we are going to take back our nation. We may drive a little slower than you would like but we get where we're going, and in 2012 we're going to the polls by the millions. This land does not belong to the man in the Gold House nor to the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. It belongs to "We the People" and "We the People" plan to reclaim our land and our freedom. We hope this time you will do a better job of preserving it and passing it along to our grandchildren. So the next time you have the chance to say the Pledge of Allegiance, Stand up, put your hand over your heart, honor our country, and thank God for the old geezers of the "Grey-Haired Brigade."

Author, Anon. Grey-Haired Brigade Member

Footnote:

This is spot on. I am another Grey-Haired Geezer signing on. I will circulate this to other Grey-Haired Geezers all over this once great county. Can you feel the ground shaking??? It's not an earthquake, it is a STAMPEDE.

"In God We Trust"



Happy Moments, Praise God.
Difficult Moments, Seek God.
Quiet Moments, Worship God.
Painful Moments, Trust God.
Every Moment, Thank God.

Keeping out of the hospital. We get the van back tomorrow. I have been using my CPAP religiously and find that I have no problem with sleepiness. I took the Commuter Bus for about a week - could not hack it. The seat was cramped and I had to hold my walker in front of me. By the time the trip was over my limbs and back were all tied up.

SOUP FOR THE TROOPS

WELCOME TO THE

(where our troops, allies and their families can refresh themselves)

Good morning, Everyone.
Good morning to our

Military, our Allies, and their families.

Thank you, Ma, for preparing the Canteen for today's activities
Another nice visit with the troops.
God bless 'em all.

DC METROLAND WEATHER

~ Today...Windy with a mix of clouds and sun.
High 46F. Winds W at 20 to 30 mph.
Winds could occasionally gust over 40 mph.

~ Tonight...Mostly clear skies this evening.
A few snow showers developing late.
Low around 30F. Winds WSW at 10 to 20 mph.
Chance of snow 30%.

Making Z Zoup
A cup of this...a teaspoon of that...stir it around...

Nero and Henry VIII were both
relatively good rulers when they assumed power,
but both became bloodstained tyrants.
Each killed a philosopher who had been a good influence:
Nero compelled Seneca to commit suicide
and Henry ordered Thomas Moore beheaded..

There was a time that the Vatican
owned shares of the Watergate complex in Washington D.C.,
the Pan American building in Paris,
and the Hilton hotel in Rome.

Henry Waterman invented the modern elevator in 1850.
He intended it to transport barrels of flour.

Sir Isaac Brock, the hero of the War of 1812,
was buried four separate times.
He was first buried in a fort,
then in the old Brock monument,
then in a temporary grave after that monument was damaged
in an explosion, and finally laid to rest
under the current Brock Monument.

Hair grows slowest at night.
It speeds up in the morning,
slows in the afternoon,
nd grows faster again in the evening.
Hair grows faster in summer than in winter.

Woke up around 11:30 last night to find the power out.
Went back to bed and woke up around 1:30 to discover it back on.
Needless to say that I am tired.
Going to leave early today, so this will be a post and run.
Move into lurker mode and will watch for pings.

The FR Canteen is ALWAYS

Please stay right where you are.
Keep the troops entertained and the Canteen clean...
Cause...if you don't...I'll tell Ma!
