Pack Up Your Sorrows

February 28, 2013

During the turbulent years of the 1960s, popular music in America was a strange mixture of protest and patriotism. Some songs lashed out against war, greed, and injustice in society, while others affirmed duty to country and traditional values. But “Pack Up Your Sorrows,” written by Richard Farina and Pauline Baez Marden, seemed to fit all of the categories with its focus on the quest for personal peace. The refrain said the following:

Well, if somehow you could pack up your sorrows,
And give them all to me
You would lose them, I know how to use them,
Give them all to me.

Perhaps everyone hoped that someone really could bring them peace.

The good news is that there is Someone who can! Isaiah 53 is a prophetic picture of Israel’s promised Messiah. Christians see its fulfillment in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. “Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows . . . . He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed” (vv.4-5).

Jesus took our sins and sorrows on Himself so that we could be forgiven and have peace with God. Will you give Him your sorrows today?

Never a burden that He does not carry;
Never a sorrow that He does not share;
Whether the days may be sunny or dreary,
Jesus is always there.
—Bertha Lillenas. ©1934 Homer A. Rodeheaver.
No sorrow is too heavy for our Savior to bear.

Read: Isaiah 53:1-6

Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows. —Isaiah 53:4
Bible in a Year:
Numbers 20-22; Mark 7:1-13

Another nice visit with the troops.
God bless 'em all.

A dash of this...a sprinkle of that...

More than 63 million Star Trek books,
in more than 15 languages, are in print;
13 were sold every minute in the U.S. in 1995.

All the planets in our solar system
could be placed inside the planet Jupiter.

The standard escalator moves
120 feet per minute.

The body's largest internal organ
is the small intestine at an average length
of 15 to 20 feet and has a diameter of no more
than an inch and a half.
The large intestine measures an average of 5 feet.

Rinse food products off knives
immediately after use, especially mayonnaise,
which is a highly corrosive substance.
If staining should occur,
use a non-abrasive polishing compound to remove it.

The FR Canteen is ALWAYS

O P E N

Come in, sit down.
Grab a cup of joe, or tasty tea.
Mingle a bit, chat with the troops
or family member.
There's always plenty of conversation,
silliness,
and plain old BS in the FR Canteen.

REMEMBER THEM ~ DEFENDERS OF FREEDOM

FR CANTEEN MISSION STATEMENT

Showing support and boosting the morale of our military and our allied military and the family members of the above. Honoring those who have served before.
