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.

Second Best?

February 14, 2013

Leah must have laid awake all night thinking of the moment when her new husband would awaken. She knew that it was not her face he expected to see, but Rachel’s. Jacob had been a victim of deception, and when he realized that a “bait and switch” had occurred, he quickly made a new deal with Laban to claim the woman he had been promised (Gen. 29:25-27).

Have you ever felt insignificant or second-best? Leah felt that way. It’s seen in the names she chose for her first three sons (vv.31-35). Reuben means “See, a Son”; Simeon means “Heard”; and Levi means “Attached.” Their names were all plays on words that indicated the lack of love she felt from Jacob. With each son’s birth, she desperately hoped she would move up in Jacob’s affections and earn his love. But slowly Leah’s attitude changed, and she named her fourth son Judah, which means “Praise” (v.35). Though she felt unloved by her husband, perhaps she now realized she was greatly loved by God.

We can never “earn” God’s love, because it’s not dependent on what we do. In truth, the Bible tells us that “while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Rom. 5:8). In God’s eyes, we are worth the best that heaven could offer—the gift of His precious Son.

Love sent the Savior to die in my stead.
Why should He love me so?
Meekly to Calvary’s cross He was led.
Why should He love me so? —Harkness
Nothing speaks more clearly of God’s love than the cross.

Read: Genesis 29:16-30

While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. —Romans 5:8
Bible in a Year:
Leviticus 15-16; Matthew 27:1-26

AERIAL REFUELING

Valentine's Day for aerial refueling? Someone's been watching the opening scene of Dr. Strangelove a few too many times.

Good Valentine's Day, Canteeners, Troops, and All the Ships at Sea!

Best wishes from the soggy Sunshine State on this romantic day. And I do mean, "romantic", because there's a little anniversary involved.

It was one year ago today that Sarge and The Bride first met. And where was that romantic first date, that led to such wonderful times?

Would you believe...

That's right, Folks. The ever-popular Waffle House! After coffee and late breakfast, and coffee and conversation, and coffee, we cruised on over to the nearby mall and wandered the shops, drank coffee, sat outside and smoked, drank coffee, shared family pics, and parted company.

And the rest rolled on from there...

Here's wishing your sweetheart's day is as ground-breaking as ours was!
