REQUEST PERMISSION TO COME ABOARD



CHARLESTOWN, Mass. (Jan. 14, 2008) The first major snowfall of the New Year blankets the USS Constitution. Despite the weather "Old Ironsides," remained open for free public tours. At 210 years-old, USS Constitution is the oldest commissioned warship afloat in the world, manned by 67 active-duty United States Sailors and visited by nearly half a million visitors annually.

Hi All! Just getting settled after my Outback sojourn. Coming back it seems I'm a banana.

Like a banana, you are tender hearted and sensitive. And the more someone gets to know you, the softer and sweeter you are. You are loving, gentle, and compassionate. You touch others with your warmth, empathy, and understanding.

You are mild-mannered and find it easy to get along with almost anyone. You help harsher personalities mellow out. You are vulnerable and sensitive, but you avoid letting others hurt you with your somewhat hardened exterior. You are tough when you need to be.

You value harmony and togetherness. You like to be in a relationship and usually adore your partner. You don't make waves. If someone annoys or insults you, you rather walk away than cause a scene.

Dragonfruit. Of all your fun personality quizzes, this one was probably the least “me”.

But it’s all good fun.

You Are Dragonfruit Like this 'strawberry pear', you are a sweet and sensitive person. You don't have a mean bone in your body. You have the best intentions, and people know that. Unfortunately, you are sometimes a little too scatterbrained to follow through. You are hyperactive and easily bored. You like to be entertained and stimulated as much as possible. You don't focus well, and you rarely do just one thing at once. You can only get things done if you multitask. You love a good discussion or debate. You find verbal volleying to be a great way to develop new ideas. You are impatient. You don't do well with waiting. If you don't know how something is going to turn out, you often lose interest.

Well kinda sorta. Anyhow, I had to munge the "HTML" to get it to even look this good.

I think it needs a comma after "principem" at least if Google Translate has the Latin right, otherwise the meaning gets inverted. (He kneels not to princes, but to the Prince of Peace)

I didn't venture out today - too hot and muggy. Did some cleanup in the house and went through a ton of papers - filed what is still needed and shredded or recycled the rest.

10:56? Wow!

A PRAYER OF PROTECTION

The light of God surround you
The love of God enfold you
The power of God protect you
The presence of God watch over you
Wherever you are, God is,
And all is well.
Amen.

BLESS THIS HOUSE
 Bless this house O Lord we pray; Make it safe by night and day; 
Bless these walls so firm and stout, Keeping want and trouble out:
Bless the roof and chimneys tall, Let thy peace lie over all;
Bless this door, that it may prove ever open to joy and love.
Bless these windows shining bright, Letting in God's heav'nly light;
Bless the hearth a'blazing there, with smoke ascending like a prayer;
Bless the folk who dwell within, keep them pure and free from sin;
Bless us all that we may be Fit O Lord to dwell with thee;
Bless us all that one day we May dwell O Lord with thee.

Freep mail me to be on or off the Daily Bread ping list


A Missed Lunch

May 22, 2013

For me, food is more than a necessity—it’s a wonderfully enjoyable part of life! I enjoy sitting down to a well-prepared meal, especially when I’m feeling hungry. I imagine that the disciples were hungry for lunch when they returned to the well where Jesus was interacting with the Samaritan woman. They urged Him, “Rabbi, eat” (John 4:31). His response? “I have food to eat of which you do not know” (v.32), which made them wonder if someone had already brought Him something to eat (v.33).

I wonder if the disciples were so consumed with thinking about food that they couldn’t see past their picnic. They didn’t understand the significance of what was going on at the well. The most important thing to Jesus was “to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work” (v.34). He was focused on the spiritual needs of this woman who desperately needed what only He could give.

It’s easy to become preoccupied with needs of the moment. But Jesus invites us to get beyond our own interests—our own little “lunch”—to open our eyes to the souls who are searching for answers to their deepest needs.

So, join Jesus at the well, and let Him use you to tell others about the spiritual food only He can give.

Dear Lord, may my eyes be fixed not just on the things
I am interested in, but lift my eyes to see the
needy souls around me. Give me passion for the lost
and the joy of seeing others satisfied in You.
Be hungry to satisfy the needs of others around you.

Read: John 4:27-38

Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work.” —John 4:34
Bible in a Year:
1 Chronicles 16-18; John 7:28-53

You Are a Pineapple
Like a pineapple, you have a tough exterior. You aren't one to be messed with, that's for sure.
But if people peel away your layers, they'll find you're quite sweet on the inside - with a strong inner core.

You have a strong moral fiber. You aren't easily swayed by popular opinion. You have your own ideas about what is right.
You are independent and self-reliant. You are honest with others and never ask too much of them.

It takes you a bit longer to make friends than most people, but the friends you have are for life.
You are quick to act and brave in your decisions. You go with your intuition, and it has rarely led you astray.

Thanks very much for the suggestion. I've had some problems with Google Translate - if you run my sentence through Google Translate, the result you get is in the third person singular - "he kneels." "Genuflectimus" is in the first person plural - "we kneel."

I used a translation from Google Translate when I started employing that sentence - the grammatical solecisms in that version were corrected by another FReeper whose command of Latin is much better than mine. It has been over 50 years since I took Latin.

Again, I thank you for your interest and suggestion. For the present, I will leave the comma out, but I remain open to any corrections.

Hey, why not just say it in English or provide the English translation with it. Latin sounds noble but it’s rather obscure too...

You Are a Banana
....and evening! oo-oo-oo! :)

Like a banana, you are tender hearted and sensitive. And the more someone gets to know you, the softer and sweeter you are.
You are loving, gentle, and compassionate. You touch others with your warmth, empathy, and understanding.

You are mild-mannered and find it easy to get along with almost anyone. You help harsher personalities mellow out.
You are vulnerable and sensitive, but you avoid letting others hurt you with your somewhat hardened exterior. You are tough when you need to be.

You value harmony and togetherness. You like to be in a relationship and usually adore your partner.
You don't make waves. If someone annoys or insults you, you rather walk away than cause a scene.

I have fought a good fight,
I have finished my course,
I have kept the faith.
2 Timothy 4:7 (KJV)

"Arm yourselves, and be ye men of valour, and be in readiness for the conflict;
For it is better for us to perish in battle than to look upon the outrage of our nation and our altar.
As the Will of God is in Heaven, even so let it be."
(1 Maccabees 3:58–60)

Rest in Peace, fallen brother, rest in peace!
We who remain hold you in high honor.
Rest, fallen brother, in this sacred precinct;
We who remain keep this place sacred.
Rest, fallen brother, among these, your comrades;
We who remain keep the watch.
Rest, fallen brother, among these who answered the Nation’s call;
We who remain press the fight forward in your name.
Rest, fallen brother, lay down thy burden;
We who remain have taken up the torch.
Rest in Peace, fallen brother, rest in eternal peace!

You Are a Pineapple
Like a pineapple, you have a tough exterior. You aren't one to be messed with, that's for sure.
But if people peel away your layers, they'll find you're quite sweet on the inside - with a strong inner core.

You have a strong moral fiber. You aren't easily swayed by popular opinion. You have your own ideas about what is right.
You are independent and self-reliant. You are honest with others and never ask too much of them.

It takes you a bit longer to make friends than most people, but the friends you have are for life.
You are quick to act and brave in your decisions. You go with your intuition, and it has rarely led you astray.

I like Latin - it reminds me of my childhood, when the Catholic Mass was said in Latin, when I came to intellectual consciousness, and when our great Nation was in its ascendency - the era of Pax Americana.

I am willing to bet that most of our male FReepers would not want to be called any kind of “Fruit”.
