Broken Bones

March 16, 2013

Years ago, I played collegiate soccer as a goalkeeper. It was more fun than I can describe here, but all that fun came at a hefty price—one I continue to pay today. Being a goalie means that you are constantly throwing your body into harm’s way to prevent the other team from scoring, often resulting in injuries. During the course of one season, I suffered a broken leg, several cracked ribs, a separated shoulder, and a concussion! Today, especially on cold days, I am visited by painful reminders of those broken bones.

David also had reminders of broken bones, but his injuries were spiritual, not physical. After David’s moral collapse involving an affair with Bathsheba and the murder of her husband, God firmly disciplined him. But then David turned to Him in repentance and prayed, “Make me hear joy and gladness, that the bones You have broken may rejoice” (Ps. 51:8).

God’s chastening was so crushing that David felt like his bones were broken. Yet he trusted that the God of grace could both repair his brokenness and rekindle his joy. In our own failure and sin, it’s a comfort to know that God loves us enough to pursue and restore us with His loving discipline.

Father, open my eyes to see my failings, open my heart
to receive Your discipline, and open my will to embrace
Your loving purposes. When I fall, I pray that You will
make me whole and restore my joy in You.
God’s hand of discipline is a hand of love.

Read: Psalm 51:1-13

Make me hear joy and gladness, that the bones You have broken may rejoice. —Psalm 51:8
Bible in a Year:
Deuteronomy 28-29; Mark 14:54-72

ROCKUMENTARY: MARCH 16, 1966

Where were you on Wednesday, March 16, 1966? I was in my senior year at a grossly overrated Catholic prep school in New Jersey run by an obscure religious order. In the fall I would start at a small engineering college in Philadelphia. I had no idea that my high school record hop DJ work would lead to college radio, which would lead in turn to a brief stint at a 50 kilowatt rock station in Seattle. So let’s cue the Rockumentary theme!

San Remo Golden Strings: “Festival Time”

They had started as Tom & Jerry, and they’d gotten a small hit in 1957 in the style of the Everly Brothers. After “The Sounds of Silence”, there was some question as to how they could follow it up. This answered that question. It came in at #10.

Welcome To All Who Enter This Canteen, To Our Serving Military, To Our Veterans, To All Military Families, To Our FRiends and To Our Allies!



Missing Man Setting

“The Empty Chair”

By Captain Carroll “Lex” Lefon, USN (ret), on December 21st, 2004

“In the wardroom onboard the aircraft carrier from which I recently debarked was a small, round table, with single chair. No one ever sat there, and the reasons, both for the table being there, and for the fact that the chair was always empty, will tell the reader a little bit about who we are as a culture.The wardroom, of course, is where the officers will dine; morning, noon and evening. It is not only a place to eat – it is also a kind of oasis from the sometimes dreary, often difficult exigencies of the service. A place of social discourse, of momentary relief from the burdens of the day. The only things explicitly forbidden by inviolable tradition in the wardroom are the wearing of a cover or sword by an officer not actually on watch, or conversation which touches upon politics or religion. But aboard ships which observe the custom, another implicit taboo concerns the empty chair: No matter how crowded the room, no matter who is waiting to be seated, that chair is never moved, never taken.

The table is by the main entrance to the wardroom. You will see it when you enter, and you will see it when you leave. It draws your eyes because it is meant to. And because it draws your eyes it draws your thoughts. And though it will be there every day for as long as you are at sea, you will look at it every time and your eyes will momentarily grow distant as you think for a moment. As you quietly give thanks.

AS YOU REMEMBER.

The small, round table is covered with a gold linen tablecloth. A single place setting rests there, of fine bone china. A wineglass stands upon the table, inverted, empty. On the dinner plate is a pinch of salt. On the bread plate is a slice of lemon. Besides the plate lies a bible. There is a small vase with a single red rose upon the table. Around the vase is wound a yellow ribbon. There is the empty chair.

We will remember because over the course of our careers, we will have had the opportunity to enjoy many a formal evening of dinner and dancing in the fine company of those with whom we have the honor to serve, and their lovely ladies. And as the night wears on, our faces will in time become flushed with pleasure of each other’s company, with the exertions on the dance floor, with the effects of our libations. But while the feast is still at its best, order will be called to the room – we will be asked to raise our glasses to the empty table, and we will be asked to remember:

The table is round to show our everlasting concern for those who are missing. The single setting reminds us that every one of them went to their fates alone, that every life was unique.

The tablecloth is gold symbolizing the purity of their motives when they answered the call to duty.

The single red rose, displayed in a vase, reminds us of the life of each of the missing, and their loved ones who kept the faith.

The yellow ribbon around the vase symbolizes our continued determination to remember them.

The slice of lemon reminds us of the bitterness of their fate.
The salt symbolizes the tears shed by those who loved them.
The bible represents the faith that sustained them.
The glass is inverted — they cannot share in the toast.
The chair is empty — they are not here. They are missing.

And we will remember, and we will raise our glasses to those who went before us, and who gave all that they had for us. And a part of the flush in our faces will pale as we remember that nothing worth having ever came without a cost. We will remember that many of our brothers and sisters have paid that cost in blood. We will remember that the reckoning is not over.

We many of us will settle with our families into our holiday season, our Christmas season for those who celebrate it, content in our fortune and prosperity. We will meet old friends with smiles and laughter. We will meet our members of our family with hugs. We will eat well, and exchange gifts and raise our glasses to the year passed in gratitude, and to the year to come with hope. We will sleep the sleep of the protected, secure in our homes, secure in our homeland.

But for many families, there will be an empty chair at the table this year. A place that is not filled.

WE SHOULD REMEMBER.”

Thanks To Alfa6 For Finding The Narrative Of “The Empty Chair.”

Bob Crewe had made his mark in the Fifties with “Silhouettes” by the Rays, which he wrote and produced. He had made millions as producer and songwriter for the Four Seasons. Now he had his own label and a new vista for accomplishment.

Crewe ran across a band named Billy Lee & the Rivieras, and he renamed them, giving them a string of hits. This song had been a small hit for the Righteous Brothers in 1963 before they signed with Phil Spector. This week it debuted at #60 in its run to the Top 20.

Bobby Fuller was from El Paso and was one of many musicians who followed the path of Buddy Holly. This was a song by the Crickets that Fuller recorded, and it peaked at #9 this week.

Did Bobby Fuller commit suicide? Or was he murdered? No one knows, and it’s a cold case today.

Producer Snuff Garrett had gone to the length of getting Buddy Rich to tutor Gary Lewis in drumming before he threw in the towel and delegated Lewis to lead vocals with over-dubbing to get over the problem of Lewis’ weak voice. He brought in some of the Wrecking Crew to handle instrumental duties. This debuted at #55 on its way to the Top 10.

I don't think "The African Woman" has been staged in this country since around World War I. They couldn't stage it today. The title alone would kill it.

HIs name was Luigi Sacco, and he was from the Pittsburgh area. He had made a splash on a local label a few years earlier with songs that featured him over-dubbing like Neil Sedaka and working his three octave range like Frankie Valli. Now he signed with MGM Records, and this effort was tossed in the trash by the head of the division. But it broke locally and then went national. This week it came in at #8.

Doubtless true, Maestro! And sad indeed, IMO!



Where are the survivors of the massacre at Benghazi? The silence of the Obama Regime on this question is deafening!

Fiat Justitia, Ruat Coelum!

Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

“Where were you on Wednesday, March 16, 1966?”

I was but a gleam in my father’s eye. :)

Hmmm... I seem to recall I posted the Clash’s cover of this song here last week!

A little squirt to be, given that the date in your original post was a year and a half (to the day!) before I was born.

Like the Maestro, I was in my final year of High School in March 1966. About 18 months shy of enlistment in the Navy. A very interesting time. IIRC, it was Confucius who said "May you live in interesting times" - also referred to as the "Chinese Curse."

Now, in my "golden years" I again live in an interesting time. I am blessed!

For years I thought one line in this one was...

Don't tell them to blow up Parliament...

Where were you on Wednesday, March 16, 1966?

I was in ninth grade at Darmstadt American School in Darmstadt, Germany.

The music scene there was rather interesting. During breakfast on week days, we would listen to variety shows imported from the US over the Armed Forces Network radio station in Frankfurt. If I remember correctly, Ira Cook was the host of the morning show.

In those days, AFN played a lot of standards, as well as polkas and Hawaiian music--just about everything except rock and roll, although Jim Pewter hosted an "oldies" show on Saturday afternoon. An occasional rock hit such as the Mamas & Papas' "California Dreaming" might somehow sneak onto the playlist, but in March, 1966, it was tunes such as these that got the lion's share of the airplay:

In early June of '66, Dominique's Discothèque by Mel Torme was proclaimed by AFN's jocks to be the number one song, and it got the most airplay on the station. I assumed that it was a huge hit Stateside, but later I found out that it didn't even come close to making the Billboard Hot 100. I wouldn't hear it again until it showed up on Youtube not long ago.

Meanwhile, one of the students at the school somehow found a copy of Jack the Ripper by Screamin' Lord Such & the Savages--probably during a trip to England--and soon everyone was singing it.

A military song came in at #1 this week in 1966. That will be my last music post for the evening. Hope you can stick around for it.
