Archive Tag! Who's Next?


Hi, Ya'll! Missed you!
I am sooooo sorry to have been away so long!
All I can say is I am surrounded by high-maintenance men ,
and it has left no time or mental capacity to blog!
It will take me a few days to get back on track completely.
I hope you all will bear with me!
In the meantime my dear bloggy friend,
Leslie at Do You Weary Like I Do? has tagged me, with the Archive Meme.
I am really gateful for this (Thanks, Leslie! :))
because it gives me a chance to bring out some old stuff,
and stuff that isn't old, but I just like it!

So, here is my list, in the order that Leslie says the game is played:
1) Family - The Guys, 2) Friends - The Power of Fellowship,
3) Something about me - The Good, The Bad & The Ugly,
4) Something I love, Butterflies and Romance!
5) Anything - Love is All You Need!
I hope you enjoy these!
And now I am supposed to tag 5 people.
Enjoy! !

What Does it Mean Anyway? "Free to Fly"...

Well, it's like this: Here are some of the Webster's Dictionary definitions of Free: a : having the legal and political rights of a citizen b : enjoying civil and political liberty c : enjoying political independence or freedom from outside domination d : enjoying personal freedom : not subject to the control or domination of another2 a : not determined by anything beyond its own nature or being : choosing or capable of choosing for itself...having a scope not restricted by qualification 7 a : not obstructed, restricted, or impeded ...Now, here are some of the Webster's Dictionary definitions of Fly:1 a : to move in or pass through the air with wings b : to move through the air or before the wind or through outer space c : to float, wave, or soar in the air ... a : to take flight ...6 : to work successfully ...Examples which apply from Websters: fly high : to be elated - fly in the face of or fly in the teeth of : to stand or act forthrightly or brazenly in defiance or contradiction of

What does this mean in my life? This means that in life we are meant to be free. While historically mankind has not always enjoyed the opportunity to fully appreciate what that means, we are so indescribably fortunate as to live in a time of the greatest spiritual, physical, financial and political freedom ever known. Freedom doesn't come cheap, nor does it come easy. But the best things in life don't come that way do they? As I write this I am struck by how this sounds like a political statement, and for me this is much more of a spiritual thing, but, same goes for that (political that is). Freedom doesn't come easy. And it's worth whatever fight you have to make to overcome in your life in order to live a life that succeeds. Now the questions is - what is success for you? What is your standard? In my mind what is needed is a definite target - because you can't hit and maintain a moving target. A stable, rock-solid, anchor with no variable, yet multi-faceted. Something pure, just and worthy. If you look at any web page of news you can see that our society is certainly lacking in this area. What a great time to live as a rebel! Nowadays to be a rebel, all you have to do is be willing to engage in the battle of life, while anchored to Christ!
