A Few of FR's Finest....Every Day
Free Republic made its debut in September, 1996, and the forum was added in early 1997.   Over 100,000 people have registered for posting privileges on Free Republic, and the forum is read daily by tens of thousands of concerned citizens and patriots from all around the country and the world.
A Few of FR's Finest....Every Day was introduced on June 24, 2002. It's only a small room in JimRob's house where we can get to know one another a little better; salute and support our military and our leaders; pray for those in need; and congratulate those deserving. We strive to keep our threads entertaining, fun, and pleasing to look at, and often have guest writers contribute an essay, or a profile of another FReeper.
On Mondays please visit us to see photos of A FEW OF FR'S VETERANS AND ACTIVE MILITARY
If you have a suggestion, or an idea, or if there's a FReeper you would like to see featured, please drop one of us a note in FR mail.
We're having fun and hope you are!

~ Billie, Dutchess, DollyCali, GodBlessUSA, JustAmy ~










Welcome to Warm Fuzzy Wednesday at the Finest. For those who start counting the days on Monday until the weekend, we're halfway there! So we're here to banish those doldrums and make you smile inside! Please feel free to post sweet graphics and/or little stories that make you feel all warm and fuzzy - or just come by and give us a smile. Only two more days 'til the weekend!

He Is There

READ: Psalm 139:1-12

He will not leave you nor forsake you. —Deuteronomy 31:6

Tanya’s fiancé David was lying in the intensive care unit after a delicate procedure to repair a brain aneurysm. David’s eyes focused on Tanya, who had hardly left his side in several days. In wonder, he said, “Every time I look up, you’re here. I love that. Every time I think of you, I open my eyes and you are there.”

That young man’s appreciation for the woman he loves reminds me of the way we should feel about God’s presence in our lives.

He is always there. The Lord’s presence gives us comfort and security. He has promised, “I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Heb. 13:5). Who knows us more completely? Who loves us more fully? Who cares for us so well?

In Psalm 139, we read what King David thought of God’s precious presence. He wrote, “O Lord, You have searched me and known me. You know my sitting down and my rising up; . . . and are acquainted with all my ways. . . . If I ascend into heaven, You are there” (vv. 1-3,8).

No matter what happens to us, we have this assurance: “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble” (Ps. 46:1). Open your eyes and your heart. He is there.

When we are walking through the green pastures,
Or over mountains rugged and bare;
Precious the thought and sweet the assurance,
Jesus is always there.  —B. Lillenas
© Renewal 1963 The Rodeheaver Co.

We can face any fear when we know the Lord is near.

Mornin' dutchess.

Here's our fuzzy little "grandson", Studley.

He's a real fighter. He's not out of the woods yet, but his health keeps improving as he matures. The way he's running around now, it's hard to believe he was comatose 3 weeks ago with less than 50% chance of survival. I think he's 12 weeks old now...

One more picture and then I've gotta get busy with my chores.

My latest creation. This one is made from 1 1/2" conduit, measures 67" top to bottom of sail and the longest tube is 44". Unplanned was how many stars would appear... turned out exactly 50. A nice breeze late yesterday afternoon filled the air with the sound of Freedom Ringing. Warmed the soul.

Hannah Grace is home!!! Thank you to all who prayed for her! Her blood pressure remains a bit high but is under control with medication and is being closely monitored. She has another surgery coming up in a month or so to hook up her "plumbing" and reverse the colostomy and she still some issues with swallowing (so she has a G-tube) but docs expect her to be OK! They don't see any permanent damage to her brain, heart, kidneys or other organs from when we nearly lost her. Thank the Lord!

PTL! for the good news about Hannah Grace. What a beautiful little girl she is. Again, prayers continue.

Yep, Studley is a Yorkie. Our daughter, sil and grandson lost many hours sleep caring and nurturing him once he came home from the vet hospital.

Thanks. Painting all those stars was very time consuming, but seeing them hanging and hearing the sounds made it all worthwhile.

The tubes are tuned to A, C, D, E, G, and A.

A couple of weeks ago, my Wednesday was cold and snowy ... today, it's back to warm and fuzzy.

These sweet little finches don't seem to care much about the weather, though ... they're busy being birds come rain or shine.

Thanks for opening the doors today, Miss D.

FReegards to all our lovely Hostesses and all the Finest ... )

Oh, Jen, Hannah Grace is such a pretty baby! What a bright-eyed, sweet happy face she has, in spite of all those tubes and wires connected to her. Thankfully, something she won't remember as she gets older.

Oh, Meg, your Kitty Table is just Precious, and I Love that Smokey-Gray Kitten! I had a Kitty about 20 Years Ago that was a Similar Color to him.

A Male Cardinal and his Wife Here in the Metroplex are Brightening my Day, Along with a Sweet Little House Wren. At my Other Place, the King's Ranch, a Pair of Birds has Moved Into the Old Barn Swallow Nest on my Back Porch; they Appear to be Phoebees, but I didn't Think there were Any of those in my Area.

Jwfiv, I Love your Bird Pic, and, Beth528, your Baby Pom has the Sweetest Face!
