The Wiccan Rede

Bide the Wiccan Laws we must In Perfect Love and Perfect Trust. Live and let live. Fairly take and fairly give. Cast the Circle thrice about To keep the evil spirits out. To bind the spell every time Let the spell be spake in rhyme. Soft of eye and light of touch, Speak little, listen much. Deosil go by the waxing moon, Chanting out the Witches' Rune. Widdershins go by the waning moon, Chanting out the baneful rune. When the Lady's moon is new, Kiss the hand to her, times two. When the moon rides at her peak, Then your heart's desire seek, Heed the North wind's mighty gale, Lock the door and drop the sail. When the wind comes from the South, Love will kiss thee on the mouth. When the wind blows from the West, Departed souls will have no rest. When the wind blows from the East, Expect the new and set the feast. Nine woods in the cauldron go, Burn them fast and burn them slow. Elder be the Lady's tree, Burn it not or cursed you'll be. When the Wheel begins to turn, Let the Beltane fires burn. When the Wheel has turned to Yule, Light the log and the Horned One rules. Heed ye Flower, Bush and Tree, By the Lady, blessed be. Where the rippling waters go, Cast a stone and truth you'll know. When ye have a true need, Hearken not to others' greed. With a fool no season spend, Lest ye be counted as his friend. Merry meet and merry part, Bright the cheeks and warm the heart. Mind the Threefold Law you should, Three times bad and three times good. When misfortune is enow, Wear the blue star on thy brow. True in Love ever be, Lest thy lover's false to thee. Eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfill: An ye harm none, do what ye will.
- Blessed Be -

It's a gift

This is great, take a moment to read it, it will make your day! The ending will surprise you.
A wealthy man and his son loved to collect rare works of art. They had
everything in their collection, from Picassoto Raphael. They would often sit
together and admire the great works of art..

When the Vietnam conflict broke out, the son went to war. He was very courageous and died in battle while rescuing another soldier. The father was notified and grieved deeply for his only son. About a month later, just before Christmas, There was a knock at the door. A young man stood at the door with a large package in his hands..

He said, 'Sir, you don't know me, but I am the soldier for whom your son gave his life. He saved many lives that day, and he was carrying me to safety when a bullet struck him in the heart and he died instantly... He often talked about you, and your love for art.'

The young man held out this package. 'I know this isn't much. I'm not really a great artist, but I think your son would have wanted you to have this.' The father opened the package. It was a portrait of his son, painted by the young man. He stared in awe at the way the soldier had captured the personality of his son in the painting. The father was so drawn to the eyes that his own eyes welled up with tears. He thanked the young man and offered to pay him for the picture..'Oh, no sir, I could never repay what your son did for me. It's a gift.'
The father hung the portrait over his mantle. Every time visitors came to his home he took them to see the portrait of his son before he showed them any of the other great works he had collected. The man died a few months later.

There was to be a great auction of his paintings. Many influential people gathered, excited over seeing the great paintings and having an opportunity to purchase one for their collection. On the platform sat the painting of the son. The auctioneer pounded his gavel. 'We will start the bidding with this picture of the son. Who will bid for this picture?'

There was silence... Then a voice in the back of the room shouted, 'We want to see the famous paintings. skip this one.' But the auctioneer persisted. 'Will somebody bid for this painting? Who will start the bidding? $100, $200?' Another voice angrily. 'We didn't come to see this painting. We came to see the Van Gogh's, the Rembrandts. Get on with the Real bids!' But still the auctioneer continued. 'The son! The son! Who'll take the son?'

Finally, a voice came from the very back of the room. It was the longtime gardener of the man and his son. 'I'll give $10 for the painting...' Being a poor man, it was all he could afford. 'We have $10, who will bid $20?' 'Give it to him for $10. Let's see the masters.' The crowd was becoming angry. They didn't want the picture of the son. They wanted the more worthy investments for their collections.

The auctioneer pounded the gavel.. 'Going once, twice, SOLD for $10!' A man sitting on the second row shouted, 'Now let's get on with the collection!' The auctioneer laid down his gavel. 'I'm sorry, the auction is over.'

'What about the paintings? ' 'I am sorry. When I was called to conduct this auction, I was told of a secret stipulation in the will... I was not allowed to reveal that stipulation until this time. Only the painting of the son would be auctioned. Whoever bought that painting would inherit the entire estate, including the paintings. The man who took the son gets everything!'
God gave His son 2,000 years ago to die on the cross. Much like the auctioneer, His message is still the same today is: 'The son, the son, who'll take the son?' Because, you see, whoever takes the Son gets everything.



May Yeshua  Bless you, Love you and Pour his Abundant Grace and Mercy on you today.

More on the Champ...


It All Harold's Fault...

He bought one first.... LOL No really I have been looking all summer long trying to convince myself to buy one. Harold did I great selling job on this model. The price was right and the funds were there. So it all fell into place. I ordered it or should I say requested one too. Our friend "Rick" was in Springfield, Missouri today, So Harold gave him a call and asked if he would play the "Brown Santa" today.I understand Byron ordered one too. So either today or Sunday I will see my new "Champ". It is a cute little airplane. Everything is included in the box. It is just the right size for my 15 foot trailer, she has a 20" wingspan. It looks a lot like the Cessna Piper J3 Cub. But it was model after the Aeronca Champion , is a single-engine, two-seat, fixed conventional gear airplane. Designed for flight training and personal use, it entered production in the United States in 1945. The Champ by Hobby-Zone is a RTF (Ready to Fly) model, like I said earlier it has everything you need to fly already in the box including the batteries for the transmitter box. Below is a video introducing the The Aeronca, which I will affectionately call "Veronica" after 1950's cartoon.  Yep just got a call from Harold and confirmed it should be here within the hour or so... Gotta Run, see ya all later. Watch out Wally World I coming....

Transiting Iranian Airspace...........................

 In  addition to communicating with the local Air Traffic Control facility, all aircraft in  the Persian Gulf AOR are required to give the  Iranian Air Defense Radar  (military) a ten minute 'heads up' if they will  be transiting Iranian airspace. 

The following conversation was heard on the VHF Guard (emergency) frequency 121.5 MHz

Iranian Air  Defense Radar:  'Unknown aircraft you are in Iranian airspace.  Identify yourself.' 
Aircraft:   'This is a  United States  aircraft.  I am in Iraqi airspace.'  
Iranian Air Defense Radar:   'You are in Iranian airspace.   If you do not depart our airspace we will launch interceptor aircraft!' 
Aircraft:   'This is a  United States  Marine Corps FA-18 fighter.  Send 'em up, I'll wait.' 
Iranian Air Defense Radar:   (total  silence) ~~~

      "This gives me Goose bumps from head to toe"

Jane Fonda aka Hanoi Jane...

It has come to my attention (1) that soon Obama is going to honor Jane Fonda as one of the:
'100 Women of the Century.' 

Please give me a break. I believe that with you have done wrong, you are to pay for your mistakes. If I am wrong please do correct me. Jane Fonda aka Hanoi Jane has not done so.  I believe we should forgive and love her as anyone should do for their "Enemy", but to reward her! Come on now.

She may have done something to try to makes amends for her past, but I am sure giving her this award is certainly not the right gesture for her!!  

I was in high school at the time Jane Fonda performed these acts against our people. Upset about the way our troops were being mistreated and abused by our own people which Jane Fonda fueled the fire.  I joined the Marine Corps in a 280 day delay program, so I could get my two cents in.  I have included a link to covered her betrayal to our troops and our country. As a Vietnam Veteran I was, and am ashamed of the way I and fellow Vietnam Veterans were and are still being treated. As American soldiers we did what our President and our Congress asked of us. Many of us did not return, and the ones that did, were and are still cruelty treated even today.  It almost seems like our President of the United States of America is getting in bed the the "Enemy", so to speak.

Giving Jane Fonda this reward is WRONG, anyway you look at it.  
Please I not only ask but demand that is not done.

Wishing You a Warm Day

I am wishing you the chance to snuggle around a nice warm cozy fire and enjoy some close company, on this cold and wet day here in Missouri. :)  I have prayers going out to many people today especially Mellina and Daughter. Please join me in these prayers for their special needs and healing touch.  I ask for a healing touch while I wait for a tooth to be removed.  There are so many special friends and pen-pals I wish to pray for on this miserable wet day. May Yeshua spread his mercy and grace over each of us this day.  Andy

President Files Own Impeachment Forms as Part of Midterm Election Ritual

Nov 16th, 2010 | By Adam Utley
President Files Own Impeachment Forms as Part of Midterm Election Ritual WASHINGTON — Upon return from his ten-day tour of Asia, President Obama gathered with newly empowered Republican leaders for the first time since the election. Both sides expressed a desire to avoid political gridlock. In a conciliatory move, the President’s chief counsel filed congressional forms requesting the House Judiciary Committee to schedule the traditional impeachment

Australia says NO ...

The United States of American has been called the melting pot of the world, They came here for values that they did not have from where they left. So they ideas and values we have had here, are as important now that ever before. Let us join Australia as we once again declare our values and stand United under one GOD.

The Australian Prime Minister does it again!!

Prime Minister of Australia, Kevin Rudd. Isn't backing down on his hard line stance and one has to appreciate his belief in the rights of his native countrymen. A breath of fresh air to see someone lead. I wish some leaders would step up in USA. Truer words have never been spoken. It took a lot of courage for this man to speak what he had to say for the world to hear. The retribution could be phenomenal, but at least he was willing to take a stand on his and Australia 's beliefs. America needs a leader like this!

Rudd angered some Australian Muslims by saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation's mosques. Quote:

I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians. '

'This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom'

'We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society . Learn the language!'

'Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.'

'We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.'

'This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, 'THE RIGHT TO LEAVE'.'

'If you aren't happy here then LEAVE. We didn't force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.'
Maybe if we circulate and post this amongst ourselves in America, WE will find the courage to start speaking and voicing the truths, that We in this country have always had.  Remember these words:
And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country. (JFK)

If you agree with this post, please SEND THIS ON and ON, to as many people as you know.

Pausing in Mansfield, MO.

Say a prayer, 
and then pass Him on to bless others. 

Our assignment is to love and spread the gospel throughout the world.
Oh God, please help all the unemployed, the hungry, the homeless, and all who suffer from some kind of disease, especially fear and hate. Be with our soldiers, please watch over them.  We pray for our COUNTRY to once again return to
"  One Nation Under God".
I Like to add my daily prayer is " I pray that Yeshua, will Lead me, Teach me, Bless me, That HIS will, is my will. That HE will allow me to touch all those that I meet with HIS great LOVE. That they see HIM not me. That he will allow me to show great Love, Passion and Strength to the mate HE has chosen for me as we die daily to serve HIM. That we Unite and become One under HIS loving arms of Grace and Mercy", Amen and Amen. 
When He gets to you, escort Him to the next stop. Please don't allow Him to sleep on your PC. 
The message He is carrying is very important and needs to go around. May God bless you as you do this: Past this around to each person you know, may it reach and touch each person. - AMEN.

I am Proud to be American, are You.

At a time when our president and other politicians tend to "apologize"  for our country's prior actions, here's a refresher on how some of our former patriots handled negative comments about our country.
JFK'S Secretary of State, Dean Rusk, was in France in the early 60's when DeGaulle decided to pull out of NATO. DeGaulle said he wanted all US military out of as soon as possible. Rusk responded, "Does that include those who are buried here?" DeGaulle did not respond.

~ You could have heard a pin drop. ~

When in England, at a fairly large conference, Colin Powell was asked by the Archbishop of Canterbury if our plans for Iraq were just an example of 'empire building' by George Bush. He answered by saying, "Over the years, the United States has sent many of its fine young men and women into great peril to fight for freedom beyond our borders. The only amount of land we have ever asked for in return is enough to bury those that did not return."

~ You could have heard a pin drop. ~

There was a conference in France where a number of international engineers were taking part, including French and American. During a break, one of the French engineers came back into the room saying; "Have you heard the latest dumb stunt Bush has done? He has sent an aircraft carrier to Indonesia to help the tsunami victims. What does he intend to do, bomb them?"  A Boeing engineer stood up and replied quietly:  "Our carriers have three hospitals on board that can treat several hundred people; they are nuclear powered and can supply emergency electrical power to shore facilities; they have three cafeterias with the capacity to feed 3,000 people three meals a day, they can produce several thousand gallons of fresh water from sea water each day, and they carry half a dozen helicopters for use in transporting victims and injured to and from their flight deck. We have eleven such ships; how many does France have?"

~ You could have heard a pin drop. ~

A U.S. Navy Admiral was attending a naval conference that included Admirals from the U.S., English, Canadian, Australian and French Navies At a cocktail reception, he found himself standing with a large group of officers that included personnel from most of those countries. Everyone was chatting away in English as they sipped their drinks but a French admiral suddenly complained that, whereas Europeans learn many
languages, Americans learn only English. He then asked, "Why is it that we always have to speak English in these conferences rather than speaking French?"  Without hesitating, the American Admiral replied; "Maybe it's because the Brit's, Canadians, Aussie's and Americans arranged it so you wouldn't have to speak German."

~ You could have heard a pin drop. ~


Robert Whiting, an elderly gentleman of 83, arrived in Paris by plane. At French Customs, he took a few minutes to locate his passport in his carry on. "You have been to France before, monsieur?" the customs officer asked sarcastically. Mr. Whiting admitted that he had been to France previously. "Then you should know enough to have your passport ready."  Then the American said, "The last time I was here, I didn't have to show it." "Impossible... Americans always have to show their passports on arrival in France !"  The American senior gave the Frenchman a long hard look. Then he quietly explained, ''Well, when I came ashore at Omaha Beach on D-Day in 1944 to help liberate this country, I couldn't find a single Frenchmen to show a passport to."

~ Then too, You could have heard a pin drop. ~
If you are proud to be an American, Show it! 

If not, GET OUT!

I am proud to be of this land, AMERICA

On October 30th 2010...

On Saturday, October 30, 2010, the Opera Company of Philadelphia brought together over 650 choristers from 28 participating organizations to perform one of the Knight Foundation's "Random Acts of Culture" at Macy's in Center City Philadelphia.

This event is one of 1,000 "Random Acts of Culture" to be funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation over the next three years.
