~ Happy Mother's Day 2013!! ~



Proverbs 31:10-31

"Who can find a virtuous woman?
for her price is far above rubies.
The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her,
so that he shall have no need of spoil.
She will do him good and no evil all the days of her life.
She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.
She is like the merchants' ship; she bringeth her food from afar.
She riseth also while it is yet night,
and giveth meat to her household,
and a portion to her maidens.
She considereth a field, and buyeth it:
with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.
She girdeth her loins with strength,
and strengtheneth her arms.
She perceiveth that her merchandise is good:
her candle goeth not out by night.
She layeth her hands to the spindle,
and her hands hold the distaff.
She stretcheth out her hand to the poor;
yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.
She is not afraid of the snow for her household:
for all her household are clothed with scarlet.
She maketh herself coverings of tapestry;
her clothing is silk and purple.
Her husband is known in the gates,
when he sitteth among the elders of the land.
She maketh fine linen, and selleth it;
and delivereth girdles unto the merchant. Strength and honour are her clothing;
and she shall rejoice in time to come. She openeth her mouth with wisdom;
and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
She looketh well to the ways of her household,
and eateth not the bread of idleness.
Her children arise up, and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praiseth her.
Many daughters have done virtuously,
but thou excellest them all. Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain:
but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands;
and let her own works praise her in the gates."

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

Missin' mine.....left us at the end of February '09 -- seems like yesterday, since wifey and I were there to see her soul escorted skyward.

Time flies, but sometimes the hurt hangs around a little longer.

Dear God:
I ask that no Airman, Coast Guardsman,
Marine, Sailor, Soldier, Reservist, or National Guardsman
Feel alone or forgotten.

O Israel, hope in the Lord;
For with the Lord there is loving kindness,
And with Him is abundant redemption.
And He will redeem Israel
From all his iniquities.

Psalm 130:7 & 8

Thank You, Dear FRiend.

Lynn-DAH and I went to TWO Dog Parks today, and a Birthday party.

We let her have a piece of cheese at the p[arty and she was a big hit with the ladies.

We are now experiencing violent storms here.

He Who blessed our forefathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob - may He bless the fighters of the Israel Defense Force, who stand guard over our land and the cities of our G-d from the border of the Lebanon to the desert of Egypt, and from the Great Sea unto the approach of the Aravah, on the land, in the air, and on the sea.

May HASHEM cause the enemies who rise up against us to be struck down before them. May the Holy One, Blessed is He, preserve and rescue our fighting men from every trouble and distress and from every plague and illness, and may He send blessing and success in their every endeavor.

May He lead our enemies under their sway and may He grant them salvation and crown them with victory. And may there be fulfilled for them the verse: For it is Hashem, your G-d, Who goes with you to battle your enemies for you to save you.

G-d bless and keep your children safe, Alouette.

Happy Mother’s Day to all freepers. I’m busy getting ready to serve Irish Tea tomorrow afternoon for Mom and the whole famdamily. All those little tea sandwiches are a pain to make but fun to eat along with my orange scones with clotted cream and raspberry preserves and of course potato soup and all the other little fruit and cookie goodies.

Wounded Warriors had stands set up outside Albertson’s today. I give to them so often, I had to tell the guy “I gave at the office.” What I didn’t tell him was that I was so flat broke, I only had .23 cents in my purse.

I am ashamed.

I’ll have to put towels on the window sills when it hits. They put these condos up in 2005 at the height of the bubble, and they did a shoddy job with the windows. Rain itself isn’t a problem, but just add strong winds, and everything leaks. It’s an annoyance.

No need to be ashamed. You are a loyal supporter of our troops. We each do what we can.

Seasons Of Life

May 12, 2013

When I was a pastor, I served many women who were moms. I called on them in the hospital and rejoiced with them for their precious babies who had come into the world. I counseled with anxious mothers and tried to assure them that God was watching over their rebellious teenagers. I stood with mothers at the bedside of injured or ill children and felt their pain. And I cried with them in their grief when their son or daughter died.

Mary, the mother of Jesus, also experienced times of joy and sorrow. What joy she must have felt when the Christ-child was born! (Luke 2:7). What excitement when the shepherds and later the wise men came to worship Him (vv.8-20; Matt. 2:1-12). What uneasiness when Simeon prophesied that a sword would pierce her soul (Luke 2:35). And what heart-wrenching grief as Mary watched her Son dying on the cross! (John 19:25-30). But her seasons of being a mother didn’t end with that terrible scene. She rejoiced that He rose from the grave.

Mothers, and all of us for that matter, experience many great joys and intense sorrows. But when we submit our lives to the Lord, every season of life can serve His eternal purposes.

Thank You, Lord, for motherhood
With all its vale of tears,
For happy moments never dimmed
Through all the many years. —Strecker
Being a mom is a sacred partnership with God.

Read: Luke 2:6-7,25-35

To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven. —Ecclesiastes 3:1
Bible in a Year:
2 Kings 15-16; John 3:1-18

Yes...the balcony is similar. It juts out, like a bay window, which is quite nice and stylish, but that makes the roof overhang useless. Then add strong wind and it’s a problem.

My building was constructed in the 80’s before Hurricane Andrew.

The good thing is that it survived Andrew.

The bad thing is that it is built to the old codes.
