The FReeper Canteen Presents...

~ Independence Day, July 4, 1776 ~




Preamble to the Declaration of Independence

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed, by their Creator, with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

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

GOD BLESS AND PROTECT OUR TROOPS AND OUR BELOVED NATION!



The Star Spangled Banner – Verse Four
(Click)


Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Please let me know by Freepmail if you would like

It was a bit busy as I tried to cram as much as I could in so I could hopefully take Friday off as well.

I went to the store after work so I wouldn’t have to tomorrow.

The traffic was fine but the store was crazy. LOL

I DO hope you get the peace & quiet you wish for...one can get soooo much more done right?;-}

*HUGS*

I'm off until Monday - a ton of things to do around the house. We'll sneak in some steaks on the Grill sometime, depending om John-Man's work schedule. I'm not going to the fireworks this year, but there are a few things I will do to commemorate this essential Day in our History.

SEATTLE CHAMBER MUSIC FESTIVAL

WEDNESDAY, JULY 3

8 PM Pacific (11 PM Eastern)

Listen live on-line here at KING-FM/98.1 website.

Jolivet: Heptade

Jens Lindemann, trumpet
Michael Werner, percussion

When you schedule an instrumentalist whose instrument rarely shows up in the chamber music repertory, the Artistic Director has to come up with enough material to keep the musician occupied for the entire week. I imagine Jimmy Ehnes had to ask German trumpeter Jens Lindemann for a list of possible pieces. We heard two of them before, and tonight is the Jolivet piece for trumpet and percussion. Michael Werner holds the principal percussion chair with the Seattle Sympony.

Borodin: Piano Quintet in C minor

Andrew Armstrong, piano
James Ehnes, violin
Jesse Mills, violin
Cynthia Phelps, viola
Julie Albers, cello

Jesse Mills is new to the Festival. Cynthia Phelps is principal viola with the New York Philharmonic, and she plays this huge 17 inch viola. I once told her I would hate to meet that viola in a dark alley. She is married to cellist Ronald Thomas who plays in the next piece. Cynthia and Ron met at the first Festival in 1982 and married shortly thereafter. They have a passel of musicians coming up in their North Jersey home.

Dvorak: Piano Quintet in A, Op. 81

Inon Barnaton, piano
Augustin Hadelich, violin
Ida Levin, violin
Rebecca Albers, viola
Ronald Thomas, cello

When people see Augustin Hadelich from a distance, they wonder if he is wearing makeup. Close up, you can see the damage done by the agricultural fire in Germany that disfigured his face. They weren’t sure he would live. But he survived, and he’s one of the most promising young violinists in the game today. Ron Thomas is a perennial at the Festival, and his suggestions for pieces to program are among the best around.

TODAY IN HISTORY
Battle of Gettysburg
3 July 1863 – Day Three


Meade__________________Lee

On July 3, Lee, having failed on the right and the left, planned an assault on Meade's center. A 15,000-man strong column under General George Pickett was organized, and Lee ordered a massive bombardment of the Union positions. The 10,000 Federals answered the Confederate artillery onslaught, and for more than an hour the guns raged in the heaviest cannonade of the Civil War. At 3 p.m., Pickett led his force into no-man's-land and found that Lee's bombardment had failed. As Pickett's force attempted to cross the mile distance to Cemetery Ridge, Union artillery blew great holes in their lines. Meanwhile, Yankee infantry flanked the main body of "Pickett's charge" and began cutting down the Confederates. Only a few hundred Virginians reached the Union line, and within minutes they all were dead, dying, or captured. In less than an hour, more than 7,000 Confederate troops had been killed or wounded.

It’s just entirely too hot to attend any festivities here.

So it will be the local channels & Boston pops on TV for us.

I plan some good food for the family & a marathon of the John Adams series from HBO.
