May 16, 2007 | Billie

Posted on 05/16/2007 7:45:14 AM PDT by Billie



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!

For The Children

READ: Psalm 68:5; Mark 10:13-16

Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them. —Mark 10:14

As the teenagers left Robin’s Nest orphanage near Montego Bay, Jamaica, many of them were in tears.

“It’s just not fair,” one girl said after their too-brief visit. “We have so much, and they don’t have anything.” In the 2 hours we visited, handing out stuffed animals and playing with the kids, she had been holding a sad little girl who never smiled. We learned that before she was rescued she had been abused by her parents.

Multiply this little girl’s plight by the millions, and it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. My teenage friends were right. It’s not fair. Abuse, poverty, and neglect have turned the lives of millions of little ones into a nightmare.

How this must grieve God’s heart! Jesus, who said, “Let the little children come to Me” (Mark 10:14), is surely saddened by the way these children are treated.

What can we do? In Jesus’ name, we can give monetary support to good orphanages. When possible, we can offer physical help. If we feel led, we can seek to provide homes for these precious children. And all of us can pray—beseeching God to help those for whom life is so unfair.

Let’s show children the love of God through our hearts and our hands. Dave Branon

Reaching out to needy children,
Showing them our love and care,
Is one way that God can use us
To bring hope in their despair. —Sper

Be Jesus to a child today.

LOL. Good morning, Maj. Actually, I should say "hello and see ya' later". I'm feeling pretty awful today..... have some kind of a sinus thing going on, sore throat and head-achy. Won't be spending much time on the computer today, especially if I end up having to take an antihistamine. They always knock me out.

Anyway, TTYL - when I am feeling better.

Hope you are feeling better soon!
I did some trimming and pruning yesterday and am
mostly staying off the computer to give my back a rest..
It was wonderful to get some yardwork done but
I am staying away from saws, trimmers amd ladders today.

Warm Fuzzy Wednesday Poetry


First Thoughts





My World is just full of wondrous scents and surprising sounds
That swirl and echo all around in ways mysterious and profound
Filling my head with things that Mother says are important to remember
Even though my claws are out, I maintain an even temper

As I detect the scent of Our Pretty One, with whom I've not properly met
Then feel a pressure slide under my fur while Mother doesn't fret
I'd like to know more about what's going on, but, my eyes haven't opened yet!

Whatever is caressing me is just the right size
I sense Mother watching, both cautious and wise
As soft and lovely sounds waft around my ears
Then something narrow sweeps over my fur allaying all my fears

It only lasts for a moment or so as I am returned to Mother and then I know
That my World will be one of pampered splendor that is free of strife
Once my eyes finally open and I can uncover the mysteries of my life!

It’s a warm and fuzzy Wednesday every day now that I’ve got my kitten, Coffee, back home from the vet. She’s recovering very well, after two surgeries and 3 weeks in the clinic.

Wishing our Hostess and all the Finest a fine evening and good night.

Hi Jwfiv
So good to see you. :)
Great news, your cat is recovering. My dog has some issues health wise but last blood work is better. She is too young for these troubles. It's so difficult and scary to see our pets, we love so much, not well.

Wishing you the best on this fine evening. :)

Good evening, Dear Snugs.
I'm glad that you are still talking to me. :)

Marissa loved the chocolates!!
I bought a card for her to send to you.
I can't find the card now.
I guess too many people in my house for awhile.

I have my last PT session tomorrow.
It will be great to get that finished.
I'm now trying to work on conditioning and
also working on strenghtening the muscles in my left leg.

Hope all is well with you.

Wow! Coffee’s been through a lot! Glad she is I’m sure that You are there to take such good care of her.
Coffee is a great name!
She must resemble coffee in her colorings I imagine, thus the name.
Fine evening and good night to You as well.
