CHARLESTOWN, Mass. (Jan. 14, 2008) The first major snowfall of the New Year blankets the USS Constitution. Despite the weather "Old Ironsides," remained open for free public tours.

Honor System

April 12, 2013

Many homes near ours offer produce and perennials for sale by the road. Sometimes we’ll drive up to an unattended stand that operates on the “honor system.” As we make our selection, we put our money into a cash box or an old coffee can. Then we go home to enjoy the freshly picked fruits and vegetables.

But the honor system doesn’t always work. My friend Jackie has a flower stand in front of her house. One day, as she glanced out her window she saw a well-dressed woman with a big hat loading pots of perennials into the trunk of her car. Jackie smiled as she mentally calculated a $50 profit from her labors in the garden. But when she checked the cash box later, it was empty! The honor system revealed that this woman was not honorable.

Perhaps to her, taking the flowers seemed like a small thing. But being honest in little things indicates how we will respond in the big things (Luke 16:10). Honesty in all areas of our lives is one way we can bring honor to Jesus Christ, our Savior.

The best “honor system” for a follower of Christ is Colossians 3:17, “Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus.”

Give of your best to the Master;
Give Him first place in your heart;
Give Him first place in your service,
Consecrate every part. —Grose
Honesty means never having to look over your shoulder.

Read: Luke 16:1-10

He who is faithful in what is least is faithful also in much; and he who is unjust in what is least is unjust also in much. —Luke 16:10
Bible in a Year:
1 Samuel 19-21; Luke 11:29-54

Good evening, Mac...*HUGS*...how was today’s drive? Got a new route pegged?

I lost track of time this year and forgot about taxes. Dropping them off when I leave here. Then I think I’ll do Wendys for Thursday Night Out dining, as it is close.

Kathy, I am absolutely beside myself. I've been on this project for seven workdays and I have yet to have a smooth commute in either direction. This morning, I was again diverted from my customary route and it took me over an hour and a half to make it in.

The evening commutes have been just atrocious. This evening I used yet another route that I have traveled for many years. The beginning was auspicious, but by the time I got up into upper Northwest D.C. it was after 6:30 and the curb lane was lost to parked cars. On this route, there is a portion where you enter Rock Creek Park just before getting into Maryland. This stretch was backed up for about a mile or so and it took me a half hour to travel about one mile.

The problem was a disabled car in the center lane of Colesville Road. I tried to get around this on a side street, but the nimrods in charge of traffic patterns had made that street one way against me. After many machinations I made it into freely moving traffic, but the damage had been done - it took me one hour and forty-five minutes to get home.

The ironic thing is that this office is only three blocks west of the office I have worked in for most of the last six years, but as a result of one-way streets and no good way to double back to the east, it is virtually impossible to get out of town without substantial delay.

It sounds like you were working in a veritable hell-hole today. I hope you can get everything worked out!

*HUGS*

FREEDOM ISN’T FREE! _________________________________________________________________________________________

_________________________________________________________________________________________

It Is Purchased With The Blood Of Patriots! _________________________________________________________________________________________


“Freedom Isn’t Free”

By Cdr. Kelly Strong USCG (ret)

I watched the flag pass by one day,
It fluttered in the breeze.
A young Marine saluted it,
And then he stood at ease.
I looked at him in uniform
So young, so tall, so proud,
With hair cut square and eyes alert
He’d stand out in any crowd.


Eternal Father, Strong to Save
(Click)


I thought how many men like him
Had fallen through the years.
How many died on foreign soil
How many mothers’ tears?
How many pilots’ planes shot down?
How many died at sea
How many foxholes were soldiers’ graves?
No, freedom isn’t free.


Taps
(Click)


I heard the sound of Taps one night,
When everything was still,
I listened to the bugler play
And felt a sudden chill.
I wondered just how many times
That Taps had meant “Amen,”
When a flag had covered a coffin.
Of a brother or a friend.



I thought of all the children,
Of the mothers and the wives,
Of fathers, sons and husbands
With interrupted lives,
I thought about a graveyard
At the bottom of the sea
Of unmarked graves in Arlington,
No, freedom isn’t free.


God Of Our Fathers

Good evening, Meeky...((HUGS))...all is well here. My Mom is doing really well....relieved that my Dad is suffering no more. His frustration and embarrassment and anger losing his speech was really wearing on her. He is now at peace and whole again, and she is doing well.

Hope you are doing well, too. Is it spring yet? We’ve had 2 snow storms in the last 10 days.

They do not, sadly. I can't take the train in either - we're several blocks away from the nearest Metro Station - further than I can walk at this time.

As it is, I'm spending 13 hours a day to gain 8 billable hours. I'm out the door before 7:00 a.m. and getting back home after 8:00 p.m.

But enough of my ranting! I'm happy to be pulling my weight, earning a fair wage, and not feeding at the public trough.

An excellent lesson tonight, Mayor! Corruption starts in small ways and embraces progressively larger and larger spoils. It is pernicious, corrosive, and insidious. We see its wages in today's society, with all of its worldliness, deceit and depravity.

I wonder what all of these secularists, atheists and "progressives" will do if the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob clears his throat?
