Hey folks, just thought I would wander by and say howdy, and also thank you for letting us steal George away from you. It was really nice meeting you George. Even if I didn't know who you were at first site, which is odd now that I have seen it, your avitar picture looks just like you. :roll:

It was great meeting you too, Pup. You are the master fudge maker in my book. I had a blast. :)

I cannot believe these men in Spain have so little regard for their bodies that they would do such a thing! Omigoodness!

If you see Noah, send the Ark. Non stop rain for three days and more expected, ground is saturated, which means a mosquito feast will begin when the sun returns. Hope y'all have a blessed day.

Sorry, no vacancy in the ark. It was booked solid for 371 days.

Mosquitos? No problem. Skewer the critters and toast 'em on the grill for dinner, or eat 'em as a tasty snack.

Mariane, I'm still trying to figure out why any guy would think it fun to be tossed around by a bull!

George, I saw you lurking. We miss your wit and wisdom.

Dub, We're ready to float here, too!

To all--Hope your holiday week is good.

Our sequestered nation can take a look back to another Independence Day celebration, instead. Enjoy, everyone! We certainly have been blessed by the Almighty. :clap

DJ, I did a double-take when I read your last posting. At first glance, I thought it said, "Celebrate Freedom from my friends." Haha I thought, "Wow, he must have a passel of people who are getting on his last nerve." :D So I moved on to Edy's post, then I thought, "I'd better read DJ's post again." And I'm glad I did. I was about to post a prayer request (in red) here on the porch, asking that we pray for you and the pressure you are under from your friends. :superhappy :superhappy :superhappy

I hope you had a great 4th, everyone

I watched something take place in church this morning that brought a smile to my lips and a tear to my eyes. It wasn't funny or sad, but rather, it involved the elderly couple (maybe 70+ or -) immediately in front of me, and it brought back past memories.

You see, the congregation was asked to stand for the singing of hymns. After only 2-3 words of the first hymn were sung, the couple spontaneously reached out to hold each other's hand. As they did that, they looked at each other with a tender smile, and moved closer until their bodies gently touched. They appeared to be truly one in worship of their Lord.

They get it...and they have it. The "it" is a God-centered true-love relationship they share together as one in Him.

My bride, Carol, and I shared that kind of special relationship. It was a God-centered relationship and love affair that continued for almost 50 years until the Lord called her Home in March. I believe few couples today will experience or even understand "it".

About that couple in church today: They get it...and they have it.

Hey Don, how is your daughter doing?

So in connection (somewhat) to Don's daughter and myself, I'd like to request prayers for a lady at my church, Beth. She had a hip replacement 10 to 12 years ago, but it was a metal-on-metal replacement, which I'm sure you've heard about through "lawsuit commercials" (don't know what else to call them) on TV. She has toxic levels of various metals in her blood, and so she is having a revision hip replacement operation tomorrow. They are going to attempt to do both in one operation. If you would pray for a successful surgery and with a quick recovery, I know she'd appreciate it. She needs to be able to get out of the house exactly one month from today. Her five children (ranging in age from about 17 to 25, I think) are going to be singing the national anthem at the St. Louis Cardinals game on Aug. 7th! So I know she wants to be well enough to see them. She says she WILL be going in her wheelchair. :) But you know. I'm sure she wants to actually feel better and be pain free and all that by then too.
