What do you think?

February 6, 2007

I want to know what you guys think about this statement?

Those who have a wrong opinion are closer to the truth than those who are indifferent. 


9 / 11 / 06

September 11, 2006

Today I woke up and noted the date and what happened on this particular day 5 years back. Then I went to open our window and thought maybe God will give a day today that is filled with joy and not with grief. But when I opened it was pouring rain and then I thought that God might have given us this day to not only remind and comfort us through the memorizes but to remind us of the time since then. Right now it is raining and when the World Trade centers collapsed It seemed that the world might as well end right then. But tomorrow or the next day the sun will wake me up and encouraged me throughout the day. And after the attacks we saw the “sun” come out in our country we have freed two countries from oppressive leadership. I would say that the sun rise of freedom in those places on 9-11-06 out weights the darkness in our hearts after the horror we saw on 9/11/01. And the sun rise of freedom in those counties will soon brighten the day of the countries around them, and this freedom will soon spread throughout the entire world.

This post is dedicated those who died in the attacks in the World Trade Centers, to the men and women in the Pentagon, to the brave few on flight 93, and to the soldiers that defend our freedom and the freedom of the entire free world every single day.

God Bless America


A few good words 1

May 29, 2006

I have been thinking a lot about the words I say, about how one word can change someone’s life, how we say things almost with out thinking the kick-back those words could have.                                                                                                             My blog title is “a word fitly spoken” from Proverbs 25:11. this book talks a lot about actions and their consequences, and even a lot about words.                                       As I look at my dad, when he is talking with someone he will hear what they have  to say before he ever speaks, then all he may say is one sentence and his words mean so much that they answer the whole matter right then and there. I wish I had this wisdom the hurt I cause with my words would be much less. But that wisdom rarely comes without age.

I will think about this more maybe this will give us all something to think and pray about.

Great Story

March 17, 2006

This shows the importance of a good name Proverbs 22: 1 A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.

These two stories touched me greatly, I hope it will be a blessing to you.

( I got this story in an e-mail so you are welcome to copy and paste it but please let me know )

STORY NUMBER ONE

Many years ago, Al Capone virtually owned Chicago. Capone wasn’t
famous for anything heroic. He was notorious for enmeshing the windy city in everything from bootlegged booze and prostitution to murder.
Capone had a lawyer nicknamed “Easy Eddie.” He was his lawyer for a good reason. Eddie was very good! In fact, Eddie’s skill at legal maneuvering kept Big Al out of jail for a long time.
To show his appreciation, Capone paid him very well. Not only was the money big, but also, Eddie got special dividends. For instance, he and his family occupied a fenced-in mansion with live-in help and all of the conveniences of the day.

The estate was so large that it filled an entire Chicago City block. Eddie lived the high life of the Chicago mob and gave little consideration to the atrocity that went on around him.

Eddie did have one soft spot, however. He had a son that he loved dearly. Eddie saw to it that his young son had clothes, cars, and a good education. Nothing was withheld.
Price was no object. And, despite his involvement with organized crime, Eddie even
tried to teach him right from wrong. Eddie wanted his son to be a better man than he was. Yet, with all his wealth and influence, there were two things he couldn’t give his son; he couldn’t pass on a good name or a good example.
One day, Easy Eddie reached a difficult decision. Easy Eddie wanted to rectify wrongs he had done. He decided he would go to the authorities and tell the truth about Al “Scarface” Capone, clean up his tarnished name, and offer his son some semblance of integrity. To do this, he would have to testify against The Mob, and he knew that the cost would be great. So, he testified.

Within the year, Easy Eddie’s life ended in a blaze of gunfire on a lonely Chicago Street. But in his eyes, he had given his son the greatest gift he had to offer, at the greatest price he could ever pay.

Police removed from his pockets a rosary, a crucifix, a religious medallion, and a poem clipped from a magazine. The poem read:

The clock of life is wound but once,
And no man has the power
To tell just when the hands will stop
At late or early hour.
Now is the only time you own.
Live, love, toil with a will.
Place no faith in time.
For the clock may soon be still.

STORY NUMBER TWO

World War II produced many heroes. One such man was Lieutenant
Commander Butch O’Hare. He was a fighter pilot assigned to the aircraft carrier
Lexington in the South Pacific.
One day his entire squadron was sent on a mission. After he was
airborne, he looked at his fuel gauge and realized that someone had forgotten to
top off his fuel tank. He would not have enough fuel to complete his mission and get back to his ship. His flight leader told him to return to the carrier. Reluctantly, he dropped out of formation and headed back to the fleet.
As he was returning to the mother ship he saw something that turned his blood cold: a squadron of Japanese aircraft was speeding their way toward the American fleet. The American fighters were gone on a sortie, and the fleet was all but defenseless. He couldn’t reach his squadron and bring them back in time to save the fleet. Nor could he warn the fleet of the approaching danger.

There was only one thing to do. He must somehow divert them from the fleet. Laying aside all thoughts of personal safety, he dove into the
formation of Japanese planes. Wing-mounted 50 caliber’s blazed as he charged
in, attacking one surprised enemy plane and then another. Butch wove in
and out of the now broken formation and fired at as many planes as possible until all his ammunition was finally spent. Undaunted, he continued the assault. He dove at the planes, trying to clip a wing or tail in hopes of damaging as many enemy planes as possible and rendering them unfit to fly. Finally, the exasperated Japanese squadron took off in another direction.
Deeply relieved, Butch O’Hare and his tattered fighter limped back to the carrier. Upon arrival, he reported in and related the event surrounding his return. The film from the gun-camera mounted on his plane told the tale. It showed the extent of Butch’s daring attempt to protect his fleet. He had, in fact, destroyed five enemy aircraft.
This took place on February 20, 1942, and for that action Butch
became the Navy’s first Ace of W.W.II, and the first Naval Aviator to win the
Congressional Medal of Honor.

A year later Butch was killed in aerial combat at the age of 29. His home town would not allow the memory of this WW II hero to fade, and today, O’Hare Airport in Chicago is named in tribute to the courage of this great man.
So, the next time you find yourself at O’Hare International, give some thought to visiting Butch’s memorial displaying his statue and his
Medal of Honor. It’s located between Terminals 1 and 2.

SO WHAT DO THESE TWO STORIES HAVE TO DO WITH EACH OTHER?

Butch O’Hare was “Easy Eddie’s” son.


Wonderful Inspiration

March 10, 2006

The other day as I was reading through the book of James. I came across this verse: James 4:10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up. And as i thinking on the subject of humility the Lord gave me this poem:

Humility

Some think that high is faster than low,

I know that low is the best way to go.

So if you want to soar above the trees,

Just come before Jesus on your knees.
