HUMAN BEING


In January 1997 my family and I PCSed from Camp Lejeune to Okinawa. On the trip from the east coast to LA where we would board the Freedom Bird, we decided to take a few days for sightseeing in San Francisco. We stayed at the BOQ in Naval Station, Treasure Island. One night my wife sent me to the convenience store for some milk. On the way I saw one of the old boat hangars lit up. There was a beehive of activity around the huge building, with cars and people coming and going from the parking lot.

I approached the security guard and asked what was going on. He explained that Treasure Island was being turned over by the government and that Hollywood studios were now using the old hangars to make movies. Fascinated by this discovery, I asked what movie was being made in that hangar. He said it was a film called Flubber starring Robin Williams. Robin Williams is my favorite and I asked if I could go inside. "No!" he firmly said. The guard and I continued to talk and he mentioned he was from the Bronx. What a coincidence, so am I! I then asked once again if I could go in and he said ''Well, I guess it's ok, but don't touch any equipment".

Stepping inside the studio was like Alice going through the looking glass...people running around, actors, cables, lights, sets, props all over the place. I then watched the basketball scene as it was being filmed and I could see Robin Williams at the other end of the sound stage. I hurried to the BOQ and told my wife what happened, to which she said, "sure...!" "Put your coat on, dear, we're going back." In a few minutes we were watching the filming with our 16 month old daughter. In about a half hour, the day's filming ended, and Robin Williams began to leave the set. He walked in our direction, closer, closer, closer, then right next to us! My wife ran up to him with our daughter and asked for this autograph. Robin Williams bent down, lifted up our daughter and started making funny faces and voices to entertain her. Many of these voices were recognizable from Good Morning Vietnam and Mrs. Doubtfire! He asked who we were and we explained we were in the military headed to duty in Okinawa. He said how much he admired people serving in the military, gave us his autograph and wished us well.

I reflected on that thrilling encounter many times since that night in Treasure Island. Here was a major star, an Academy Award winner. He could have just walked by and not want to be bothered. Yet, he took time out to make total strangers feel important. What a splendid example of human decency, humility and concern for others. What a marvelous example for us all...to love our neighbor as we love ourselves!

Chaplain Mitch Schranz

Savor The Flavor

February 3, 2013

In a fast-paced culture of “eat and run,” few people make time to enjoy a leisurely meal in the company of friends. Someone has even remarked that the only way to enjoy a seven-course meal today is to get it all between two pieces of bread!

After many of the Israelite exiles in Babylon returned to Jerusalem to rebuild the temple and the walls of the city, they gathered to hear Ezra read from the Book of the Law given by God through Moses (Neh. 8:1). They listened to God’s Word for hours, while teachers among them “gave the sense, and helped them to understand the reading” (v.8).

When they wept because of their shortcomings, Ezra, along with Nehemiah the governor, told them this was not a time for sorrow but a time for rejoicing. The people were told to prepare a feast and share it with those who had nothing, “for the joy of the Lord is your strength” (v.10). Then “all the people went their way to eat and drink, to send portions and rejoice greatly, because they understood the words that were declared to them” (v.12).

The spiritual banquet God has prepared for us in His Word is a cause for great joy. It is worth taking time to savor.

Lord, give us a hunger and a thirst to know You more
that can be satisfied only by time spent with You in Your
Word. Help us to savor that time and, as we do,
to grow more in love with You each day.
Christ the Living Bread satisfies our spiritual hunger through the Living Word.

Read: Nehemiah 8:1-12

All the people went their way to eat and drink . . . and rejoice greatly. —Nehemiah 8:12
Bible in a Year:
Exodus 31-33; Matthew 22:1-22

Dear God:
I ask that no Airman, Coast Guardsman,
Marine, Sailor, Soldier, Reservist, or National Guardsman
Feel alone or forgotten.

O Israel, hope in the Lord;
For with the Lord there is loving kindness,
And with Him is abundant redemption.
And He will redeem Israel
From all his iniquities.

Psalm 130:7 & 8

He Who blessed our forefathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob - may He bless the fighters of the Israel Defense Force, who stand guard over our land and the cities of our G-d from the border of the Lebanon to the desert of Egypt, and from the Great Sea unto the approach of the Aravah, on the land, in the air, and on the sea.

May HASHEM cause the enemies who rise up against us to be struck down before them. May the Holy One, Blessed is He, preserve and rescue our fighting men from every trouble and distress and from every plague and illness, and may He send blessing and success in their every endeavor.

May He lead our enemies under their sway and may He grant them salvation and crown them with victory. And may there be fulfilled for them the verse: For it is Hashem, your G-d, Who goes with you to battle your enemies for you to save you.

G-d bless and keep your children safe, Alouette.

"Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. Be not ye therefore partakers with them. For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them." -from THE BIBLE: Ephesians 5:6-11

Just askin’....

Me: God, can I ask you a question?

God: Sure.

Me: Promise you won’t get mad.

God: I promise.

Me: Why did you let so much stuff happen to me today?

God: What do you mean?

Me: Well, I woke up late.

God: Yes.

Me: My car took forever to start.

God: Okay.

Me: At lunch they made my sandwich wrong and I had to wait.

God: Huummm.

Me: On the way home, my phone went dead, just as I picked up a call.

God: All right.

Me: And on top of it all, when I got home I just wanted to soak my feet in my new foot massager and relax, but it wouldn’t work!!!

Nothing went right today! Why did you do that?

God: Let me see, the Death Angel was at your bed this morning and I had to send one of the other angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through that.

Me: (humbled): OH...

God: I didn’t let your car start because there was a drunk driver on your route that would have hit you if you were on the road.

Me: (ashamed)

God: The first person who made your sandwich today was sick and I didn’t want you to catch what they have, I knew you couldn’t afford to miss work.

Me: (embarrassed): Ok...

God: Your phone went dead because the person that was calling was going to give false witness about what you said on that call, I didn’t even let you talk to them so you would be covered.

Me: (softly) I see God.

God: Oh and that foot massager, it had a short that was going to throw out all of the power in your house tonight. I didn’t think you wanted to be in the dark.

Me: I’m sorry God.

God: Don’t be sorry, just learn to trust me.....in all things, the good and the bad.

Me: I will trust you.

God: And don’t doubt that my plan for your day is always better than your plan.

Me: I won’t God. And let me just tell you God, thank you for everything today.

God: You’re welcome child. It was just another day being your God, and I love looking after my children.

Kathy, can you please remove me from this ping list, I haven’t used it for a while and I am trying to minimize my ping list.

One thing I do wish to share with you all is this, I’ve been working on sleeping better, there’s some great tips to help, and let me say I feel great since I started on this, just keep it open in a tab and read as necessary;

How to Sleep Better
http://helpguide.org/life/sleep_tips.htm

How Light Affects Our Sleep
http://www.marksdailyapple.com/how-light-affects-our-sleep/#axzz2HLgq9Zv8

marksdailyapple.com has some other articles too, just haven’t read them yet, but it also recommends a free computer program to “to cut down on blue light emissions”, basically it turns a light shade of orange at night.

Better lighting...for your computer

GOD BLESS AND PROTECT OUR TROOPS AND OUR BELOVED NATION!




Amazing Grace
(Click)

By John Newton


Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
Was blind, but now I see.
.
’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, .
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed!
.
Through many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.
.
The Lord has promised good to me,
His Word my hope secures;
He will my Shield and Portion be,
As long as life endures.
.
Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.
.
The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, Who called me here below,
Will be forever mine.
.
When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’d first begun.

DEAR LORD, who suffered torment, agony, and death upon the Cross to free our souls from the chains of iniquity, protect and defend our troops. Guide them in the performance of their duties. Strengthen them to endure hardship, danger and deprivation in Your service. Let their efforts free the people of Iraq and Afghanistan from the chains of terror and slavery, foster a lasting peace in the region, and bring all to a greater share in Your Mercy.

Amen.

The Twenty-Third Psalm
Mahalia Jackson
(Click)


The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

Psalm 23 -KJV










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)
