Unseen Danger

April 6, 2013

When I was a young child, our family escaped near tragedy. Most of the main appliances in the house, as well as the furnace, were fueled by natural gas, but a small leak in one of the gas lines put our lives at risk. As the gas poured into our little house, our family was overcome by the lethal fumes and we lost consciousness. Had we not been discovered by a neighbor who happened to stop by for a visit, we all could have been killed by this dangerous, unseen enemy.

As followers of Christ, we can also find ourselves surrounded by unseen dangers. The toxic realities of temptation and the weaknesses of our own human frailty can endanger our lives and relationships. Unlike the natural gas in my childhood home, however, these unseen dangers do not come from outside of us—they reside within us. James wrote, “Each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed” (James 1:14).

Our natural tendency to sin, compounded by blind spots that prevent us from seeing our own weaknesses, can lead to toxic choices that ruin us. It is only by submitting to God as He shows us our hearts in His Word (vv.23-25) that we can live a life that pleases the Master.

Spirit of God, descend upon my heart;
Wean it from earth, through all its pulses move;
Stoop to my weakness, mighty as Thou art,
And make me love Thee as I ought to love. —Croly
The unseen Spirit of God is the greatest protection against sin’s unseen dangers.

Read: James 1:13-25

Each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. —James 1:14
Bible in a Year:
1 Samuel 4-6; Luke 9:1-17

Good evening, Connie...why does my work internet slow to almost a halt at 5pm??? Very annoying.

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

Did your week go well? No commuting obstacles? *hugs*

I put my sister on a plane for home this morning. She’s in Portland now, just about ready to get on her plane back to Ontario, CA.

She said she and my Mom had a great visit. She said she came up “just to see for herself”.

He would have liked to be buried in Mother Russia, but not under the Soviets. They had robbed him of his family's property, and they had been robbing him of his royalties since 1918. He never forgave them for that. He rests in a cemetery just outside New York City, the place where he made his fortune.

Ironically, he's buried not too far from another Russian émigré, Ayn Rand. Neither of them thought highly of the Reds.

I think they met, either in New York or Los Angeles. In 1937, when Rachmaninov moved from the Locustwood (NJ) mansion to Beverly Hills, Rand was in the process of moving from Hollywood to New York. The Russian émigré community was pretty tight-knit in those days.

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 Capt. Lefon's Chronicle Of "The Empty Chair."

ROCKUMENTARY: APRIL 6, 1969

Where were you on Sunday, April 6, 1969?

When you’re in a five year course, what do you call the third year? At the little engineering college I attended in Philadelphia, it was called “pre-junior”. I was in one of those six-month “industry” periods working at a lab. I was also watching to see if Richard Nixon’s “secret plan to end the war” was going to materialize. It didn’t. At ROTC, we were beginning to realize that we were going to be sent into combat, not to win, but to preserve Nixon’s negotiating position in Paris. That didn’t sit well with the corps of cadets.

So let’s cue the Rockumentary theme!

San Remo Golden Strings: “Festival Time”

They labeled themselves “Rock, Southern Style”, although they were all from the San Francisco Bay Area. Producer Saul Zaentz asked them to change their name from the Golliwogs, and this was to be their third single and first real hit. It came in at #10 this week.

Creedence Clearwater Revival: “Proud Mary”
