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.

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


Eternal Eyesight

July 4, 2013

I received good news at my eye checkup last month—my faraway vision has improved. Well, I thought it was good news until a friend informed me: “Faraway vision can improve as we age; close-up vision may diminish.”

The report made me think of another kind of improved faraway vision that I have observed in some Christians. Those who have known the Lord for a long time or who have gone through great trials seem to have a better heavenly vision than the rest of us. Their eternal eyesight has gotten better and their close-up “earthly” vision is diminishing.

Because the apostle Paul had that type of eternal vision, he encouraged the church in Corinth: “Our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory . . . . The things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal” (2 Cor. 4:17-18).

For now we struggle with our “eyesight.” There’s a tension between enjoying all that God has given us in this life, yet still believing what theologian Jonathan Edwards said about our future: “To go to heaven, fully to enjoy God, is infinitely better than the most pleasant accommodations here.” Seeing Him will bring perfect vision.

Lord, we know that our life on this earth is but
a moment compared to eternity. Help us to enjoy
the time we’ve been given, and use us to tell of Your
love and goodness until that day when we see You.
Keep your eyes fixed on the prize.

Read: 2 Corinthians 4:16–5:8

We do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. —2 Corinthians 4:18
Bible in a Year:
Job 28-29; Acts 13:1-25

I don't know how fireworks got started on Independence day but they remind many of the big fireworks delivered by a B52 or all sorts of artillery and Air strikes.

WELCOME TO

(where our troops, allies and their families can refresh themselves)

Good morning, Everyone.

Good morning to our
AWESOME
Military, our Allies, and their families.

Thank you, Ma, for preparing the Canteen for today's activities.

Now for our local DC Metroland weather report

~ Today...A mix of clouds and sun. Humid.
High 89F. Winds S at 10 to 15 mph.

~ Tonight...Mainly clear skies. Low 71F.
Winds S at 5 to 10 mph.

A miracle!
Today's weather report isn't calling for rain!
We did manage to get the grass cut, yesterday.

I went to raise the flag and
the dang rope on the flagpole broke.
Jerry-rigged the flag to the porch for the day.
Now I have to find someone to hoist the rope
up the humongously tall pole.

Wishing you all a wonderful Independence Day. Have a safe and enjoyable day.

I've got to make my rounds. But, you stay right where you are. Keep the troops entertained and the Canteen clean...
Cause...if you don't...I'll tell Ma! And you know how she gets.

Remember, the Canteen is ALWAYS

So, come on in and sit for a while. There's always plenty of coffee, pancakes, conversation, silliness, and plain old BS

REMEMBER THEM

DEFENDERS OF FREEDOM
