Healthy Husbands and Celtic Thunder!

Hope everyone had a ducky weekend! Ours was good. I came home from church yesterday to a yard with cut grass! Yep! Hubby is all better now, and even off to work this morning! What a glorious answer to prayer. As much as he hurt Friday I was really concerned about him. Every time we sat down to eat a meal and say grace, we prayed for his healing and strength and thanked God for all He is so good to us for. I am so glad he's up and at 'em!

Wanted to say if you get a chance to catch the show "Celtic Thunder" on your local PBS channel, and if you like that sort of music, do check it out. Saturday evening we watched it and it was a lot of fun to watch. Lots of talent. We love Celtic music and dance, so that is what drew us.
Well, duty calls, Cheerio!

I wish we had T.V right now so that we could catch things like that. I love the music and the dance.
My sister gave me a c.d with music by the Celtic Women. I love it.
Glad your hubby is all better...I know back issues can be rough.
I hope you are enjoying your time at the beach if you are still there.

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!
