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 200,000 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.
On Mondays please visit us to see photos of A FEW OF FR'S VETERANS AND ACTIVE MILITARY










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!

Hello FRiends! Gosh, it’s been a long time. I have missed you all more than I can say.

I hope that things have finally calmed down enough in my life so that I can get back to posting on my favorite website once again.

So,.......whatcha all been up to? Did I miss anything while I was gone? :-)

Fuzzy hugs!

Stagecoach Prayer

READ: John 15:7-14

Whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. —John 14:13

Five-year-old Randy wanted a toy stagecoach for Christmas. While shopping with Mom, he found just the one he wanted. It was about 6" long and had cool wheels and dark brown plastic horses pulling it. “Mommy, I want this one. Pleeeease!” he begged. As young children sometimes do, he threw a tantrum, insisting that he get that stagecoach for Christmas. Mom said, “We’ll see,” and took him home.

Randy was sure he’d get what he asked for. Christmas morning came, and he opened the package confidently. Sure enough, it was the stagecoach he had begged for. He was so pleased. But then his older brother said, “You really did a dumb thing to insist on getting that coach. Mom bought you a much bigger one, but when you begged for that little one, she exchanged it!” Suddenly the small stagecoach didn’t seem so appealing.

Sometimes we’re like that with God. We pray about a specific need and tell Him how He ought to answer. We beg and plead—and God may even give us exactly what we ask for. But He may have had something better in mind.

Phillips Brooks once said, “Pray the largest prayers. You cannot think a prayer so large that God, in answering it, will not wish you had made it larger.”

Do not presume to know what’s best
When you begin to pray;
But say to God, “Your will be done,”
Then trust His perfect way. —Sper

Large asking results in large receiving.

Lovely flowers, MEG. They sure have brighten up a gloomy day here.

I’ve missed you too. I hope that circumstances allow me to spend more time here. We shall see.

My irises are blooming but my lilac has bloomed and fizzled out already. The bloom event came and went so quickly, I wasn’t able to get any photos of it this year. All my roses are budded out. There is a new one in my garden that I am anxious to see in bloom; Chicago Peace. I love this time of year!

You have yourself a wonderful day, MEG. And, thanks again for the sweet welcome back messages. I be smilin’. :-)

Do get a picture of any and all and share..I always love your flower photos.

Its a cool 60 degrees here..sun has tried to come out. It is hard to believe it was in the 80s yesterday.
My pink dogwood has only a few faded blossoms left.

I will do that. I have a lunch appointment, then some shopping to do, but later this afternoon I may get out my camera and see if I can get some good shots of whatever is blooming in my garden. It is overcast today, perfect lighting for outdoor photography. This time I will not forget to mist the flowers. I do not want to hear my husband say, once again,........"nice shot, except it would have looked better if you had sprayed some water on the flower first." Grrrrrrrr.

Pink dogwood - that must be a beautiful tree when in bloom. It's too bad the blossoms don't last just a little longer on our spring flowering trees.

Knitting a Conundrum has started a thread just for rose lovers/rose growers. You might want to take a look-see, and post some photos there too...
