July 4th Independence Day

header-top-july4th-2015

As we celebrate the 4th of July again here in 2015, we think it’s important to pause and reflect upon what it means to live in America. This country was founded by men and women who wanted to escape persecution and the threat of government control over their lives.

Generation after generation, beginning in the 18th century, many brave patriots gave up everything they held dear, with a strong conviction in their belief that God created man and that we are endowed by Him with certain inalienable rights (That means they are birthrights, which can never be taken away), including the right to Life, the right to Liberty and the right to the pursuit of happiness.

The right to life means you have the God-given right to live your life free of the threat of someone taking it from you against your will. This right extends from unborn children all the way to elderly people who may be sick or dying and everyone in between.

The only way to lose that right is by taking it from someone else against their will or by betraying this free country.

The bottom line here is FREEDOM!

The right to Liberty means that you have the right to fair treatment and respect from others. People can’t come and take your stuff, harm you or your loved ones or steal your ideas without consequences.

In other words, you have the power to act as you please to pursue your own interests and preferences so long as they don’t violate the rights of others.

The right to the pursuit of happiness means you are free to go out in the world and create a great life for yourself. It doesn’t mean that the government will take care of you, it doesn’t mean you have a right to be happy all the time; it means you have the right to PURSUE happiness.

If you work hard, persevere, deny yourself and strive for your goals, you have a great chance to succeed here in America, more so than anywhere else on Earth! Click here to read the full version of our July 4th newsletter

World Compassion – Fill The Container Update

Back in Oct 2014 we were honored to be part of World Compassion Fill The Container project. Chelsea Dischinger spearheaded this project and got a lot of businesses and individuals involved and we recently received news that the Container has finally arrived in Irbil, Iraq. There were some struggles along the way to get the container there but with determination, perseverance and faith, it made it. Below is a letter from Chelsea describing what happen along with photos. We are so glad to know that the container finally made it, and that in some small way through what we collected and donated, it is helping others who are in dire need.

Gold, Common Sense and Fur – Merry Christmas

top-banner-002-122014
We recently received the story below and found it so delightful that we wanted to share it with you this holiday season. It is a little lengthy but anyone who is a parent or even if you’re not a parent but you might be an Aunt or Uncle to nieces and nephews, will get such a chuckle out of reading it. You may even find yourself thinking “Yes that happened to me too”. Please enjoy reading…

The Christmas Pageant
My husband and I had been happily married (most of the time) for five years but hadn’t been blessed with a baby. I decided to do some serious praying and promised God that if he would give us a child, I would be a perfect mother, love it with all my heart and raise it with His word as my guide. God answered my prayers and blessed us with a son. The next year God blessed us  with another son. The following year, He blessed us with yet another son. The year after that we were blessed with a daughter. My husband thought we’d been blessed right into poverty.

We now had four children, and the oldest was only four years old. I learned never to ask God for anything unless I meant it. As a minister once told me, “If you pray for rain, make sure you carry an umbrella.” I began reading a few verses of the Bible to the children each day as they lay in their cribs. I was off to a good start. God had entrusted me with four children and I didn’t want to disappoint Him.

I tried to be patient the day the children smashed two dozen eggs on the kitchen floor searching for baby chicks. I tried to be understanding…when they started a hotel for homeless frogs in the spare bedroom, although it took me nearly two hours to catch all twenty-three frogs. When my daughter poured ketchup all over herself and rolled up in a blanket to see how it felt to be a hot dog, I tried to see the humor rather than the mess.

In spite of changing over twenty-five thousand diapers, never eating a hot meal  and never sleeping for more than thirty minutes at a time, I still thank God daily for my children. While I couldn’t keep my promise to be a perfect mother – I didn’t even come close…I did keep my promise to raise them in the Word of God.

I knew I was missing the mark just a little when I told my daughter we were going to church to worship God, and she wanted to bring a bar of soap along to “wash up” Jesus, too. Something was lost in the translation when I explained that God gave us everlasting life, and my son thought it was generous of God to give us his “last wife”.

My proudest moment came during the children’s Christmas pageant. My daughter was playing Mary, two of my sons were shepherds and my youngest son was a wise man. This was their moment to shine. My five-year-old shepherd had practiced his line, “We found the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes”. But he was nervous and said,  “The baby was wrapped in wrinkled clothes”. My four-year-old “Mary” said, “That’s not ‘wrinkled clothes,’ silly. That’s dirty, rotten clothes”.

A wrestling match broke out between Mary and the shepherd and was stopped by an angel, who bent her halo and lost her left wing. I slouched a little lower in my seat when Mary dropped the doll representing Baby Jesus, and it bounced down the aisle crying,  “Mama-mama”. Mary grabbed the doll, wrapped it back up and held it tightly as the wise men arrived.

My other son stepped forward wearing a bathrobe and a paper crown, knelt at the manger and announced, “We are the three wise men, and we are bringing gifts of gold, common sense and fur”. The congregation dissolved into laughter, and the pageant got a standing ovation. “I’ve never enjoyed a Christmas program as much as this one,” laughed the pastor, wiping tears from his eyes “For the rest of my life, I’ll never hear the Christmas story without thinking of gold, common sense  and fur”. “My children are my pride and my joy and my greatest blessing”, I said as I dug through my purse for an aspirin.

Jesus had no servants, yet they called Him Master. Had no degree, yet they called Him Teacher. Had no medicines, yet they called Him Healer. Had no army, yet kings feared Him. He won no military battles, yet He conquered the world. He committed no crime, yet they crucified Him. He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today. Feel honored to serve such a Leader who loves us.

As you celebrate Christmas and move forward in the New Year may your home be filled with “Gold, Common Sense and Fur”. We Thank You for the opportunity of doing business and for letting us be part of your success.

Blessings to you, your family, and your organization.
Sincerely,
Peabody Engineering and Staff

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving from Peabody EngineeringIf you sat down at the First Thanksgiving dinner in 1621, you most likely had turkey, waterfowl, venison, fish, lobster, clams, berries, fruit, pumpkin, and squash. Through the years most of these foods have remained a constant staple when it comes time to prepare for the Thanksgiving Feast and depending where you live in the United States, your regional area may influence what ends up on your table. Turkeys stuffed with wild rice are a favorite in Minnesota. Washington State locally grown hazelnuts find their way in stuffing and desserts. In the Key West area, you guessed it, Key Lime pie is prominently displayed right next to the pumpkin pie and don’t be surprised if you are in Baltimore sitting at the table and you see sauerkraut sitting alongside the Thanksgiving Turkey.

Thanksgiving Day seems to be the one day of the year where food, family and friends take center stage. Tens of millions of people take to the sky, car, bus or railway to reach a beloved destination where we connect with loved ones, rejoice and give Thanks for our blessings and enjoy a wonderful feast.

Our prayers continue to be said for all our Military who protect us, our freedom and our Country. Their sacrifice allows us to be able to enjoy not only our holidays but every day and we Thank them for so gallantly serving and keeping America safe. May God look after them and bring them home to their families.

Happy Thanksgiving and may your day be filled with family, friends, laughter, love, warmth, good times and great food.
Sincerely,
All of us here at Peabody Engineering
