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 Ironside,” 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.

A Small Sacrifice

February 13, 2013

As we anticipate the coming celebration of Easter, I begin thinking about the sacrifice Jesus made so that I could be reconciled to God. To help me focus on all that He gave up for me, I make a small sacrifice of my own. When I fast from something I normally enjoy, every craving for that food or drink or pastime reminds me of how much more Jesus gave up for me.

Because I want to be successful, I tend to give up something that isn’t a big temptation for me. Yet even then I fail. My inability to be perfect in such a small thing reminds me of why Easter is so important. If we could be perfect, Jesus would not have had to die.

The rich young man whom Jesus encountered along a Judean road was trying to earn eternal life by being good. But Jesus, knowing the man could never be good enough, said, “With men [salvation] is impossible, but not with God” (Mark 10:27).

Although giving up something does not make anyone good, it does remind us that no one is good except God (v.18). And that’s important to remember, for it is the sacrifice of a good and perfect God that makes our salvation possible.

I gave My life for thee;
My precious blood I shed,
That thou might ransomed be
And quickened from the dead. —Havergal
Jesus sacrificed His life for ours.

Read: Mark 10:17-27

With God all things are possible. —Mark 10:27
Bible in a Year:
Leviticus 14; Matthew 26:51-75

I am giving my wife the gift of love. She just applied for her carry license and wanted a pistol to carry. She is getting a Ruger LCP in .380 APC, with a single red rose in the barrel and a personally written card with a dinner prepared by me on Friday.

You Should Get a New Laptop
(or tablet!)
(FINALLY!! One that suits me perfectly! LOL)

Let's be honest... you're not exactly the most romantic person in the world. And there's nothing wrong with that.
Flowers, chocolates, and stuffed animals don't really do it for you. Your eyes only light up for a new toy.

You are a bit of a geek, and traditional romance just isn't a priority for you. You find somewhat unusual things romantic.
You'd prefer a laptop to an expensive piece of jewelry. At least you'd actually use the laptop!

You Should Get An Adopted Animal
You have a big heart, and your perfect Valentine's Day gift gives back.
Whether you get a real adopted pet or sponsor an animal somewhere, knowing you've made a difference makes your heart soar.

You believe that love is about giving and sharing - not about what you get in return.
You are a truly genuine person, and anyone would be extremely lucky to be loved by you.
What Valentine's Day Gift Should You Get?

Thanks for the red, white, and blue Tribute to Our Troops.

Hope you had a good day, got lots of stuff done, and can now relaz a bit this evening. All the sickness gone from your house? Lots of coughing here at work, but nobody around me has gotten the flu. This is good!

Off to start my car.
