America The Right Way - Staying Vigilant
All of us and a variety of sources | May 2, 2011 | Freepers of good heart everywhere

Posted on 05/02/2011 4:52:21 AM PDT by Jemian

"We will not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail!" President Bush

The big news of the day is the death and burial at sea of Osama bin Laden. Thank you, President Bush and the US military (including my son and future son-in-law) who made this day happen. Other news is the nuptials of William and Catherine in Great Britain. May God bless their union and draw them close to Him in Jesus Christ. Alabama (my state) and other southeast states continue the task of digging out and rebuilding. A massive effort is underway with able bodies and supplies needed.

I thought I'd restart this thread on at least a monthly basis. I hate losing touch with so many friends and the news-specific threads just don't provide the venue to friendly chats as we used to have. So, c'mon, put your feet up, set a spell and tell us what is happening in your lives!

Thank you.

Now, in order to make it work, we need to post here every day. Just tidbits of life, but it needs to be consistent and we need participation.

Jemian, thanks for starting this thread. It is a favorite of mine.

Hope you and your family are doing fine. Are you in the USA or on mission for the Lord?

I am recovering from major surgery with the blessings of many prayers of family and friends. Getting stronger everyday.

So happy that Bin Ladin is dead. Former President Bush gave a strong statement, so clear and complementary to the military, unlike the me, me, statement of O’s.

Prayers for the USA !!

Once again Thanks for doing this here. I like it so much better.

We are still in the states, gathering the remainder of our support. Our monthly salary is all pledged but we have a one-time need of about $7000. We are praying that is will come in soon so we can return to Papua this summer.

I am glad that you're recovering from surgery. When was it? Was it a surprise or something you knew was developing?

Yes, this is definitely something to Bush's credit and not our current poser. It was intel gathered at Gitmo that aided this operation. Frankly, I am surprised he was buried-at-sea so quickly. I would have liked to see the body. As it is the admin is asking us to trust them when they have proven so untrustworthy. Nonetheless, it is a good day for America.

I'm listening to Todd Beamer's father. He is saying my thoughts.

Good idea Jemian, thank you.

Good morning everybody. I will try to post as much as possibly even though life will be getting very crazy around here in the next few weeks.

Well, well, Osama bin Ladin is finally no longer exchanging atmospheric gases. Good work for the good guys. Not including Obama in that, though.

I’m off to read a few articles on this, have a great day everybody.

Thank you for your encouragment. Life has been a rat race lately. April just absolutely flew by for us. The beginning of it involved eye surgery for me underwritten by a family friend. Most people can just rebound from the surgery but it took me a few extra days. There was nothing wrong that occurred but the healing took longer.

Then there was the Palm Sunday, Holy Week and Easter celebrations. Except it started a week prior to Palm Sunday with our daughter performing in the choir of Verde’s Requiem.

All throught this I was working with a virus on my computer. I tried everything to remove it but in the end I had to reformat and reinstall. I’m still in the process of reinstalling and tucking the files I use into their proper places. That is tedious.

For us, Wednesday was very big day. We watched the weather radar closely and made all the possible preparations. Having done that, we waited and trusted God. We were blessed. As the squall lines approached our town, Auburn, AL, the storms either dissipated or separated going north and south of us. We had about a 20 minute rain and that is all. It is north Alabama which was hit and is in the process of digging out. So much work is to be done.

Denco, I meant to add that I really am enchanted by your life. If I had my druthers, I would be doing exactly what you are doing. Please keep telling us the tales of your ranch life.

Thanks, Prairie. You said life will be getting very crazy. My question is “when is it not crazy?” There may be days it is less crazy than others but crazy seems to be just normal.

Good Morning Everyone! The corn planters are finally rolling in SE Iowa. Unfortunately the temperment of those behind the wheel is still a bit ‘surly’, due to the lateness of the planting season.

I am headed outside to dig a few bags of Daisy to deliver to a friend of mine for transplanting in her gardens.

Wishing everyone an extra Happy Day!!

hey good to see you & an excellent idea of a monthly thread.

I personally cannot get onto the other site. Did inform 3 people but never got info back. My password no longer works

Maybe I am getting subtle hints? Just like never knowing about it initially?

Well, I am very busy in life & on the web & time is rare. this will be a nice way to keep up with each other for those who also never knew about the other place, who cant seem to log on or just don’t want to mess with another forum

Thinking about you & your EYES.. I met you in Ga a few days prior to your surgery. so glad so far is good results.

You will be returning to Indonesia this summer still? I have a QuakeFeed ap on my iPhone. Always seems to be rock & rolling there, although most are small.

No, you weren't getting subtle hints. Others have had a hard time finding and getting to the other site. There are good reasons for having it and there are good reasons for being here.

WHAT WE NEED IS PARTICIPATION! People need to stop by regularly and just tell us what is happening with them and interaction with each other. Most of our other threads on FR are about specific topics, but this thread is about us. Therefore, each of us are needed to make it work.

Oh! I forgot much of my reply. Yes, you saw me just days before the surgery. At that time, it hadn’t even been scheduled so I didn’t mention it to much as so often I get offered glorious things and yet, for one reason or another, it just doesn’t pan out. PTL, this did.

We do plan to return this summer. We need about $7K to do it. We’ll officially be there for two years before another furlough but we’ll return for personal time, seeing our new grandbaby and then for the youngest’s wedding in 2012.

understand. However you cant bully or shame people into participating. They must see something they want & that will be the draw.

I however still have my FR stalker & so personally do not share much that could AND HAS resulted in problems in my life. I do post elsewhere in a protected thread...

I do NOT know his screen-name but know he checks out my posts due to his showing up & participating WITH ME physically if he knows any of my plans. He is not dangerous I am sure, but annoying & gives me the creeps.

I used to share a lot at Amy’s place, cant any longer

I can share some things however. Facebook for me has been an interesting and good thing. Protect also there who sees your stuff. If someone gets wierd, they are GONE with the Wind!

See most of my FR closer contacts there if not at TRR.

Okay, busy day. Must get going!

You are right about bullying, etc. I do want to encourage people to participate because each one adds something. I am not a draw. I don’t have that type of personality. I’m more like person who is on the sidelines cheering others on to posts of greatness and then adding, “what he said!”

I just want to emphasize to all who may be lurking, you are important and what makes you smile will likely make someone else smile, too.

It is a pity about the stalker. I have had a few clingers-on in my life. I understand the challenge.

I think you are a “big draw”. Your knowledge, sense of humor, serious/lyrical.. when appropriate responses and posts are always interesting & fun.

Yes, you are a cheerleader also & also have a lot of love of friendships & loyalty and that is why you are trying hard to ring in the wanderers from ATRW along the way

always wonder about the Chair, illstillbe, others

thanks again Jem

before you leave USA you need to make a trip to his (Toby) place & help him with his computer (as you love this type of work so much...LOL) & make sure he can find both places.

I wish I could have visited with him & others on my swing into Ga but timing with my travel partner & his musical gigs was the limiting factor

THANKS TONS FOR YOUR KIND WORDS DEAR HEART.

CLEANSING STREAMS was quite cleansing . . . nothing greatly new but deeper, broader imho.

Left with a new resolve and sense of lightness, overcoming spirit and attitude etc.

Folks noticed a much improved countenance and burdens lifted.

PRAISE GOD!

I just saw a video about bases being closed down.

Certainly it is likely the Jihadi’s are going to be loosed on us with major devastations sooner than later.

Walking with God will not be ‘optional’ for those who

CHOOSE LIFE.

All other choices will be death.

LET US ALL BE ABOUT THE MASTER’S BUSINESS.

LET US LOVE GOD SUPREMELY THOROUGHLY AND OTHERS AS OURSELVES.

FWIW . . . receingly received links:

I just now checked with a soldier who is at our home. He has received no orders to return to post. OTOH, I do know that the State Department has issued a world-wide travel alert and ex-pats who dwell in predominantly moslem countries need to be extra vigilant.

AM afraid that many of the young people naively think that the war on terror is over. Now discussing problem on FOX. Pray for our country and her people.
Am proud of our military and intelligence people but they still may have very difficult times ahead.

Dad is better than he's been in years. Helped me plant potatoes and certainly has enjoyed checking the chickens with Rascal dog. We've had so much rain he doesn't get to go out as often as he wishes.

Now I lay me down to sleep,
one less terrorist this world does keep.
With all my heart I give my thanks,
to those in uniform regardless of ranks.
You serve our country and serve it well,
with humble hearts your stories tell.
So as I rest my weary eyes,
while freedom rings our flag still flies.
You… give your all, do what you must...
with God we live and God we trust.

My garden is growing great, and I've already had a few things out of it.

I wound up with a small commercial pig in a barter exchange, and I'm currently bootlegging it here in the back yard in the city. When it gets a little older, it goes to the freezer. (or sooner, if I get caught by the city)

The old frenchman has chickens, and is getting eggs.

Life is ok. I can't complain.

Hi, B4. Still celebrating here, but considering how it will affect our troops as well. We have someone departing for Afghanistan later this month.

Where are you residing these days? Are you still in your previous location or have you moved to the left coast?
