New Chinese military airport in Fujian A threat to Taiwan
China built a new military airport close to the coast of Fujian Province, across the Taiwan Straits from Taiwan. The Shuimen Airport was located 246 kilometers northwest from Taipei, 380 km northwest from the disputed Diaoyutai Islands, and 200 km southwest from the Chunxiao oilfields, the Chinese-language United Evening News reported Saturday. The equipment at the airport included Sukhoi 30 jets, drones and S-300 air defense missiles, the report said.
I received an email from my buddy Gary. The subject is "Preparing for Memorial Day". ※Gary, I am proud of you, and I thank you for your service to this country.※ It is nice to remember why we celebrate memorial day. Please read and say "thank you" to some one who served. (I rearranged the attached pictures and text.)
It is the VETERAN, not the preacher, who has given us freedom of religion. It is the VETERAN, not the campus organizer, who has given us freedom to assemble. It is the VETERAN, not the lawyer, who has given us the right to a fair trial. It is the VETERAN, not the politician, Who has given us the right to vote. It is the VETERAN who salutes the Flag. It is the VETERAN who serves under the Flag.
We can be very proud of our young men and women in the service no matter where they serve.
ETERNAL REST GRANT THEM, O LORD, AND LET PERPETUAL LIGHT SHINE UPON THEM. Comfort those mothers、families、friends、and give them peace. A-Men
The Stone Statues in Easter Island have bodies 復活島的巨石半身人頭像原來還連接了下半身！新發現令人更加驚奇與迷惑!! The Stone Statues in Easter Island have bodies ! This is absolutely incredible. Here we've been thinking for all these years that they were just heads. They are going to be absolutely huge when they are completely excavated. It all just adds to the mystery of these amazing sculptures. Maybe now they can get more information about them seeing as they have writings on them.
I finished reading the Memoirs-"Taste Of Freedom" by Dr. Peng Beng-Ming recently. He described about his prosecution as a political prisoner by Taiwan Government under Chiang's leadership, and his effort for Taiwan Independence during 1970s.
基督徒魚的記號 After Christ's crucifixion his followers were persecuted and the fish symbol was used as an identifying symbol that fellow Christians would recognize, but non-Christians would not. Therefore Christians could connect with each other through a secret code, such as a fish symbol, without revealing themselves to the oppressors. ﹝五餅二魚﹞請參閱新約聖經:馬太14:13-21； 馬可6:35-44； 路加9:10-17； 約翰6:1-14。
I took these pictures while I made my round this morning around my New York neighborhood blocks. 今早在近鄰漫步閒蕩5條街段一圈 , 覺得還不錯, 拿出隨身的愛奉拍下數張照片, 這是我今天紐約拾穗(一)。 看到加油站今晨油價1加侖$4.05, 兒童遊玩場, 聾啞學校, 超級市場前已罕見的公共電話, 一間天主教高中, 浸信會教堂, 曼哈頓帝國大厦的高塔, 鄰居的新屋, 一棵倔強的花樹, 花花草草,...。 其實這些不是今天才有的, 而是每次出門就可看到的景物, 只是今天才有心情將它拍下來而已。 (See individual picture 看個大圖) ※愛奉 iPhone 啦。
An old acquaintance, Charlotte, emailed this prayer to me. Let it be a prayer by me to all my Blog readers:
"Prayer is one of the best free gifts we receive. There is no cost, just a lot of reward. Make sure you pray, and pray believing God will answer. May today be all you need it to be. May the peace of God and the freshness of the Holy Spirit rest in your thoughts, rule in your dreams tonight and conquer all your fears. May God manifest himself today in ways you have never experienced before. May your joys be fulfilled, your dreams be closer, and your prayers be answered. I pray that faith enters a new height for you; I pray that your territory is enlarged. I pray for peace, healing, health, happiness, prosperity, joy, a moral renewal to our nation, true and undying love for God. In Jesus Name, Amen."
