Good Friday – 2012

For he grew up before him like a young plant,
and like a root out of dry ground;
he had no form or comeliness that we should look at him,
and no beauty that we should desire him.
 He was despised and rejected by men;
a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief;
and as one from whom men hide their faces
he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
 Surely he has borne our griefs
and carried our sorrows;
yet we esteemed him stricken,
smitten by God, and afflicted.
 But he was wounded for our transgressions,
he was bruised for our iniquities;
upon him was the chastisement that made us whole,
and with his stripes we are healed. 
Have a Blessed Good Friday

    Bless you, and yours, for your kind reminder and witness of that which is FAR more a Blessing which we were all given by His Sacrifice for us all than we realize.
    We seldom remember this in the pressure of our world’s electronics environment during these current times – even in our hobby…
    However,when it IS used according to His Will and Purpose to serve the needs
    of many in times of emergency and in caring support daily to many others with limited mobility and means to reach out and serve their communities…
    What a Gift of His Loving Nature is ours in this “Hobby” to share!!!!
