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.

Living Beyond The Odds

August 21, 2013

Many of us make daily decisions based on the odds. If there’s a 20 percent chance of rain, we may ignore it. If there’s a 90 percent chance, we’ll take an umbrella. The greater the odds, the more our behavior is affected because we want to choose wisely and be successful.

Acts 12:1-6 describes a situation in which Peter’s odds of survival were very low. He was in prison, “bound with two chains between two soldiers” while others guarded the door (v.6). Herod had already executed James, one of Jesus’ closest followers, and he had the same fate in mind for Peter (vv.1-3). A gambler would not have put any money on Peter getting out of this alive.

Yet God’s plan for Peter included a miraculous deliverance that even those who were interceding for him found hard to believe (vv.13-16). They were astonished when he showed up at their prayer meeting.

God can operate outside the odds because He is all-powerful. Nothing is too hard for Him. The One who loves us and gave Himself for us is in charge of our lives. In ordinary circumstances and impossible situations, God can reveal His power. Whether we are showered with success or sustained in sorrow, He is with us.

Dear God, we’re so thankful that nothing is too
difficult for You. You can do amazing things!
Help us to trust that You are always with us
and always in control. We love You, Lord.
God is always in control behind the scenes.

Read: Acts 12:1-11

Constant prayer was offered to God for [Peter] by the church. —Acts 12:5
Bible in a Year:
Psalms 107-109; 1 Corinthians 4

You are a Sea Anenimie Annemomine Annemoninie This sucker here:

You lie around and hope food comes to you

Some may call you lazy, but you point out you merely are preserving resources.

You have many marriages and divorces but you don't care since you weren't that much into them anyway.

It did get warm today - high 80's with the humidity in the 90's. It was a reasonably good commute today - but I'm surprised how little the traffic has decreased this month.

Well as can be expected.
Pooks was diagnosed Hypothyroid this week.
I gotta pick up his meds, I wonder what that will cost a month LOL.
He is doing OK though.
I thought he was pretty chipper for a lazy old Lab.
