The Winding Road

July 11, 2013

In his book A Sweet and Bitter Providence, John Piper offers these thoughts about God’s providence and guidance: “Life is not a straight line leading from one blessing to the next and then finally to heaven. Life is a winding and troubled road. . . . God is not just showing up after the trouble and cleaning it up. He is plotting the course and managing the troubles with far-reaching purposes for our good and for the glory of Jesus Christ.”

The Jews journeying to Jerusalem for the annual feasts (Deut. 16:16) had the assurance of knowing that the Lord was plotting their course and managing the winding and troubled roads for them. They expressed this assurance in Psalm 121, a pilgrim song. The question, “From whence comes my help?” did not express doubt but affirmation in the Lord who rules supreme (vv.1-2). Unlike a guard who sometimes slumbered, or the god Baal who needed to be rustled out of his stupor (1 Kings 18:27), the Lord was fully alert and secured the journey of His people with providential care (vv.3-4). The Lord, who rescued Israel, would continue to help, preserve, and walk with His people.

Life is a winding road with unknown perils and troubles, but we can be certain of God’s providence, security, and care.

Dear Lord, sometimes life seems to be full of
perilous and winding roads. Thank You for giving
us the assurance that You have our course plotted
and are watching over our every step.
Troubles are unknown; God’s providence is certain.

Read: Psalm 121

He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber. —Psalm 121:3
Bible in a Year:
Psalms 1-3; Acts 17:1-15

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 Ironsides," 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.

Hi Kathy and Hugs2 You 1 zps9409c58b

Things here pretty quiet for a change. Some sort of festivity thing coming up so I got roped into helping with putting up fliers and stuff. Then I gets to apron up and start cooking some sort of Aussie gruel - meat, beans, and god knows what else is in it. No wonder they drink a lot of beer here.

SEATTLE CHAMBER MUSIC FESTIVAL

WEDNESDAY, JULY 10

8 PM Pacific (11 PM Eastern)

Listen live on-line here at KING-FM/98.1 website.

Mendelssohhn-Hensel: Quartet in E-flat

Augustin Hadelich, violin
Nurit Bar-Josef, violin
Cynthia Phelps, viola
Bion Tsang, cello

This isn’t the famous Felix Mendelssohn, but his older sister Fanny, who was a gifted pianist and a decent composer in her own right. Nurit Bar-Joseph is Concertmaster with the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington. I kid her about whether the correct term for her is Concertmistress. Bion Tsang is one of our greatest cellists, and I’ve featured him in videos in the past. He teaches at the University of Texas at Austin.

Beethoven: Sonata for Cello and Piano in D, Op. 102/2

Anton Nel, piano
Ronald Thomas, cello

Anton Nel is from South Africa, and he also teaches at UT/Austin.

Tchaikovsky: Trio for Piano, Violin and Cello in A minor, Op. 50

Adam Neiman, piano
Andrew Wan, violin
Julie Albers, cello

Adam Neiman is a great admirer of Ayn Rand, and one of the few classical musicians who is not reflexively liberal on all issues. Andrew Wan is the Concertmaster with the Symphony Orchestra of Montreal.

Good evening, Mac...*HUGS*...is your humidity coming down any? Commute going well?

We got the checks out on time today. Whew!! My yesterday and today have been challenging, but with help we got all the new things fixed. It has not been fun.

And we are still faced with the new system going live on August 5th....already pushed back from July 1st. We are supposed to run a parallel payroll tomorrow on the new system. I am hoping nothing works right and it gets delayed another month or just plain junked.

The humidity is abating, albeit slowly. We're supposed to have a cold front come through tomorrow and Friday and Saturday are supposed to be beautiful!

The commute was smooth in both directions today.

BAND OF BROTHERS

WORLD WAR II


Soldiers of the 101st Airborne Division "Screaming Eagles"
June 7, 1944 at Ste.Marie du Mont, France

"This day is call'd the feast of Crispian.
He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
Will stand a tip-toe when this day is named,
And rouse him at the name of Crispian.
He that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
And say, "To-morrow is Saint Crispian."
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars,
And say, "These wounds I had on Crispin's day."

KOREA

Marines of the "Chosin Few", 1st Marine Division
Chosin Reservoir, Korea, December 1950


"Old men forget; yet all shall be forgot,
But he'll remember with advantages
What feats he did that day. Then shall our names,
Familiar in his mouth as household words,
Harry the King, Bedford, and Exeter,
Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester,
Be in their flowing cups freshly rememb'red.
This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered."

VIETNAM

FMF Corpsman D. R. Howe treats the wounds of Pfc. D. A. Crum, "H" Company, 2nd Battalion, Fifth Marine Regiment, during Operation Hue City.


"We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition:
And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day."

AFGHANISTAN

Soldiers of the 101st Airborne Division in action, Afghanistan, 2011


"Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more,
Or close the wall up with our English dead.
In peace there's nothing so becomes a man
As modest stillness and humility;
But when the blast of war blows in our ears,
Then imitate the action of the tiger;
Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood,
Disguise fair nature with hard-favour'd rage;
Then lend the eye a terrible aspect;
Let it pry through the portage of the head
Like the brass cannon; let the brow o'erwhelm it
As fearfully as does a galled rock
O'erhang and jutty his confounded base,
Swill'd with the wild and wasteful ocean."

(Henry V, Act IV, Scene iii)


THE STRUGGLE AGAINST TYRANNY GOES ON,
AS IT HAS FROM TIMES IMMEMORIAL.
THE BAND OF BROTHERS STILL STANDS FAST IN THE BREACH!

THEY HAVE OUR SIX!

Honor Them For Their Service And Sacrifice!

A cup of this...a teaspoon of that...

The Roman historian Pliny
was so impressed by garlic and its perceived powers,
he listed no less than 61 medicinal uses
for the pungent bulb.
Among them was that of
warding off vampires, restoring hair loss,
and preventing warts.

Venus is much brighter than any other planet or star.
At its brightest it can cast shadow,
and even be seen during the day time.

The word “struthious” refers to something
that resembles or is related to ostriches.

The Cree Indians used smoking pipes as currency.

To "dandle" is to dance a child up and down
on the knee or in the arms.

The FR Canteen is ALWAYS

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.

Well, so far so good. No power outages yet. Keeping our fingers crossed. We’re under a Heat Advisory through at least Saturday morning.
