God Bless Our Republic
I pledge allegiance to the Flag

and to the Republic, for which it stands;
one nation UNDER GOD,
with liberty and justice for all.
Prayers going up
Bless the Troops
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 priceone I continue to pay today. Being a goalie means that you are constantly throwing your body into harms 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 Davids 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).
Gods 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, its a comfort to know that God loves us enough to pursue and restore us with His loving discipline.
Read: Psalm 51:1-13
Thank you for our pledge Hope.
Hugs to you both & you got a twofer.
Today & always Sandy. Hope the Prince & Princess are finally feeling well. *Hugs*

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 lets cue the Rockumentary theme!
They had started as Tom & Jerry, and theyd 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.
