UNDER ATTACK

A boarding team from HNMLS Rotterdam was making an approach on a suspect dhow near the coast when they came under fire from ashore and from the dhow itself. Rotterdam returned fire in accordance with Rules of Engagement, during which the dhow was seen to ignite and crew members were observed leaping into the water. One crew member of the dhow was killed in this action and 25 people were subsequently rescued from the water by Rotterdam. Commodore Ben Bekkering, the commander of the NATO Task Force, said that the Rotterdam and her boats remained under sustained fire from the shore throughout, even while attempting to rescue the crew of the stricken dhow and one of Rotterdam’s rigid inflatable boats was damaged.

Making Up For Lost Time

April 11, 2013

None of us can say that we have no regrets. Often we are led down paths of bad choices—some paths longer than others—which can have a lingering effect on the mind, body, and soul.

A friend of mine spent a number of years living a life of alcohol and drug abuse. But God did an amazing work in his life, and he recently celebrated 25 years of being free from substance abuse. He now runs a successful business, has a devoted wife, and his children love Jesus. He has a passion to reach out to others who are in the ditch of life, and he serves as a wise and loving mentor in the rescue operations of their lives.

God never gives up on us! Even if we’ve made poor choices in the past that have left us with regret, we can choose how we will live now. We can choose to continue destructive living, simply wallow in regret, or we can run to Christ believing that He has ways to “restore . . . the years that the swarming locust has eaten” (Joel 2:25). When we repentantly seek His healing and freeing power, He is merciful.

While some consequences from the past may remain, we can be confident that God has a good and glorious future for those who trust in Him!

Lord, it is with humble and grateful hearts that we
come to You and lay all that we have been in the past
at Your feet. Take us as we are and make something
beautiful out of our lives that brings glory to You!
God never gives up on making something beautiful out of our lives.

Read: Joel 2:21-27

I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten. —Joel 2:25
Bible in a Year:
1 Samuel 17-18; Luke 11:1-28

Airmen return to Davis-Monthan

Some 300 personnel from the 354th Fighter Squadron and the 355th Maintenance Group returned home to Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, April 9, 2013, from a six-month deployment at Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan.


Mary Beth Newman holds onto her husband, staff sergeant Richard Newman, right after he stepped off the plane that brought the 300 members of the 354th Fighter Squadron and the 355th Maintenance Group home to Davis-Monthan Air Force Base.


Staff sergeant Clint Perry holds his one-week old daughter Addisyn as he sees her for the first time upon his return to Davis-Monthan Air Force Base after six months in Afghanistan.

Good evening, Connie, and thanks for the red, white, and blue Tribute To Our Troops.

Did you have a good day? A safe commute?

We’ve had more snow, but the sun came out for a little while. And tonight is hair cut night, then some gas for the suburban at Costco on the way home.

Indeed, Mountainlion! IMO, more love is displayed on a battlefield than in almost any other place.
