LABOR DAY TRADITION

Labor Day is a United States federal holiday observed
on the first Monday in September,
that celebrates the economic and social
contributions of workers.

Labor Day has come to be celebrated
by most Americans as the symbolic end of the summer.

In U.S. sports, Labor Day marks the beginning of the NFL
and college football seasons.
NCAA teams usually play their first games
the weekend of Labor Day,
with the NFL traditionally playing
their first game
the Thursday following Labor Day.

Come on in and join the conversation.

Remember, the Canteen is a family friendly place.
We welcome the military, our allies, and their families.
Continued prayers for the success and completion of your mission.
Prayers for your safe return home.

I'll be able to hang around for a while because I won't be here in the morning. Mr. Beachy and I are off work and will be contributing to the economy.

Risks and Rescue

August 30, 2013

On September 7, 1838, Grace Darling, the daughter of an English lighthouse keeper, spotted a shipwreck and survivors offshore. Together, she and her father courageously rowed their boat a mile through rough waters to rescue several people. Grace became a legend for her compassionate heart and steady hand in risking her life to rescue others.

The apostle Paul tells us of another man and woman team who took risks to rescue others. He wrote about Priscilla and Aquila, his fellow workers in Christ, who “risked their own necks for my life, to whom not only I give thanks, but also all the churches of the Gentiles” (Rom. 16:3-4).

We are not told exactly what “risk” Paul was referring to, but with beatings, imprisonment, shipwrecks, and threats of death so common to Paul’s ministry, it’s not hard to see how this couple could have put themselves in harm’s way to help their friend. Apparently, Paul’s rescue was more important to them than their own safety.

Rescuing others—whether from physical or spiritual danger—often carries a risk. But when we take a risk by reaching out to others, we reflect the heart of our Savior who gave up so much for us.

The hand of God protects our way
When we would do His will;
And even when we take a risk,
We know He’s with us still. —D. DeHaan
When you’ve been rescued, you’ll want to rescue others.

Read: Romans 16:1-7

Greet Priscilla and Aquila . . . who risked their own necks for my life. —Romans 16:3-4
Bible in a Year:
Psalms 129-131; 1 Corinthians 11:1-16

When you board a naval vessel, do you salute the officer of the deck first and then the flag? Or is it the other way around?

I was Army, so I'm culturally deprived.

Good evening, Maestro! The protocol is first to salute the Colors, then to salute the OOD, then to request permission to come aboard.

Cooper transferred from the position of Director of the Distributed Training Center Atlantic before assuming command of Old Ironsides as the ship's 71st commanding officer. Bullard's follow-on command is a temporary assignment as a student at the Naval War College. (U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Clay Weis/Released)

The back is doing better - still sore but I'm no longer incapacitated. I had a pretty good day at work, but the evening commute was horrendous - almost two hours. I'm undergoing intense attitude adjustment as we speak.
