Unfailing Mercy

September 14, 2013

As I strolled through Chicago’s O’Hare airport, something caught my eye—a hat worn by someone racing through the concourse. What caught my attention was the message it conveyed in just two words: “Deny Everything.” I wondered what it meant. Don’t ever admit to guilt? Or deny yourself the pleasures and luxuries of life? I scratched my head at the mystery of those two simple words, “Deny Everything.”

One of Jesus’ followers, Simon Peter, did some denying. In a critical moment, he denied three times that He even knew Jesus! (Luke 22:57, 58,60). His fear-filled act of denial caused him such guilt and heartache that, broken by his spiritual failure, he could only go out and weep bitterly (v.62).

But Peter’s denial of Christ, like our own moments of spiritual denial, could never diminish the compassion of God. The prophet Jeremiah wrote, “Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness” (Lam. 3:22-23). We can take heart that even when we fail, our faithful God comes to us in mercy and compassion that never fails!

Thank You, Father, for Your new and never-
failing mercies. Forgive me for the times I deny
You and fail others, and teach me to run to
You for Your overflowing compassion.
Being imperfect emphasizes our dependence on God’s mercy.

Read: Luke 22:54-62

Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. . . . Great is Your faithfulness. —Lamentations 3:22-23
Bible in a Year:
Proverbs 19-21; 2 Corinthians 7

Everyone here is doin ok for now. We’re slowly starting on getting rid of the junk we no longer want or need. As for trigger time, not really. I am putting my Crossman 800X Quest a .22 cal spring piston rifle in a new “thumb hole” style stock, so it can be a little bit more accurate. Right now I can make a “nickle” sized group of 5 pellets at 30-40 yards with the traditional style stock. This new stock should help make it a little better at a longer distance/s [50-60 yards] But I do have to make some minor mods to set the barrel & firing assembly in it securely. I’ll be posting photos up on fb when I’m finished.

A good practice, thanks. Our forces were not up to their usual numbers - we only had three Tenors. Despite that, the sound was quite good - our choir has improved substantially over the years.

Truth be told - that scene is not from Arizona - it's Canyonlands National Park in Utah. It fit with the Monument Valley sunrise - I hope you don't mind. :)

It is my duty and responsibility to post music for the TROOPS! I feel honored to do it!

The bosses are being bosses and I am still confused as to which boss I should bow down! ;-)

Each one gives to me an order and I do not know which one to follow. Then they look at each other with smirks on their faces! They’re playing me!

When I saw all those renditions of Superstition, I remembered a guy named Terry Stafford who was not an Elvis impersonator but people often commented that he sounded just like Elvis.

Then I remembered the song was not “Superstition” but Suspicion. Terry seemed to just sort of fade away.

GOD BLESS AND PROTECT OUR TROOPS AND OUR BELOVED NATION!



The Star Spangled Banner – Verse Four
(Click)


Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Please let me know by Freepmail if you would like
to be admitted to or released from my music ping list

I've knocked out a Dan Brown (Inferno), Dean Koontz (Deeply Odd), Brad Thor (Hidden Order), reread Joel Rosenberg's Damascus Countdown and started on Richard Paul Evans' Rise Of The Elgen (Michael Vey), but I still have quite a stack. I saw the surgeon yesterday (Thursday) and she said I'm doing fine, but cautioned me to take it easy for another few weeks. I'm down from 6 or 8 pain pills a day to one or two and feel about like I did before the surgery, but when the incision stops hurting and mends, I'll be good as an old guy can be.

Oh no Yarddog...don’t let Terry fade away! LOL

I actually got to see Elvis live when I was a youngster, his last tour as I remember.

I did this theme in light of Friday the 13th. Ok, I was grasping for a theme! :)

A good weekend on tap for you? *Hugs*

Missing Man Setting

"The Empty Chair"

By Captain Carroll "Lex" Lefon, USN (RET), on December 21st, 2004

"In the wardroom onboard the aircraft carrier from which I recently debarked was a small, round table, with single chair. No one ever sat there, and the reasons, both for the table being there, and for the fact that the chair was always empty, will tell the reader a little bit about who we are as a culture. The wardroom, of course, is where the officers will dine; morning, noon and evening. It is not only a place to eat – it is also a kind of oasis from the sometimes dreary, often difficult exigencies of the service. A place of social discourse, of momentary relief from the burdens of the day. The only things explicitly forbidden by inviolable tradition in the wardroom are the wearing of a cover or sword by an officer not actually on watch, or conversation which touches upon politics or religion. But aboard ships which observe the custom, another implicit taboo concerns the empty chair: No matter how crowded the room, no matter who is waiting to be seated, that chair is never moved, never taken.

The table is by the main entrance to the wardroom. You will see it when you enter, and you will see it when you leave. It draws your eyes because it is meant to. And because it draws your eyes it draws your thoughts. And though it will be there every day for as long as you are at sea, you will look at it every time and your eyes will momentarily grow distant as you think for a moment. As you quietly give thanks.

AS YOU REMEMBER.

The small, round table is covered with a gold linen tablecloth. A single place setting rests there, of fine bone china. A wineglass stands upon the table, inverted, empty. On the dinner plate is a pinch of salt. On the bread plate is a slice of lemon. Besides the plate lies a bible. There is a small vase with a single red rose upon the table. Around the vase is wound a yellow ribbon. There is the empty chair.

We will remember because over the course of our careers, we will have had the opportunity to enjoy many a formal evening of dinner and dancing in the fine company of those with whom we have the honor to serve, and their lovely ladies. And as the night wears on, our faces will in time become flushed with pleasure of each other’s company, with the exertions on the dance floor, with the effects of our libations. But while the feast is still at its best, order will be called to the room – we will be asked to raise our glasses to the empty table, and we will be asked to remember:

The table is round to show our everlasting concern for those who are missing. The single setting reminds us that every one of them went to their fates alone, that every life was unique.

The tablecloth is gold symbolizing the purity of their motives when they answered the call to duty.

The single red rose, displayed in a vase, reminds us of the life of each of the missing, and their loved ones who kept the faith.

The yellow ribbon around the vase symbolizes our continued determination to remember them.

The slice of lemon reminds us of the bitterness of their fate.
The salt symbolizes the tears shed by those who loved them.
The bible represents the faith that sustained them.
The glass is inverted — they cannot share in the toast.
The chair is empty — they are not here. They are missing.

And we will remember, and we will raise our glasses to those who went before us, and who gave all that they had for us. And a part of the flush in our faces will pale as we remember that nothing worth having ever came without a cost. We will remember that many of our brothers and sisters have paid that cost in blood. We will remember that the reckoning is not over.

We many of us will settle with our families into our holiday season, our Christmas season for those who celebrate it, content in our fortune and prosperity. We will meet old friends with smiles and laughter. We will meet our members of our family with hugs. We will eat well, and exchange gifts and raise our glasses to the year passed in gratitude, and to the year to come with hope. We will sleep the sleep of the protected, secure in our homes, secure in our homeland.

But for many families, there will be an empty chair at the table this year. A place that is not filled.

WE SHOULD REMEMBER."
