Combining RR-BB.com into RaptureForums.com

Because it has become insanely difficult to manage a bulletin board these days, the managers of Rapture Ready and Rapture Forums have decided to join our boards together under a software program that is easier to manage. Because RF has their database operating well under an Enforo license, we decided to make Rapture Forums the focal point of a consolidation. Since Chris, the owner of RF, has long experience in running a forum, he can better manage the problems that come with this technology.

If you do not have an account at https://www.raptureforums.com/forums/, please sign up. By the end of November, it will become the forward address of RR-BB.com

  • Remembering Father....Happy Father's Day, Brothers

    With Father's Day tomorrow (Sunday) I just wanted to wish all who are fathers a very WONDERFUL Father's Day!



    Remembering Father
    By: Maxine M.


    Another Father’s Day has arrived…a time when tribute and honor should be paid
    A reminder of “father qualities”…not letting their special attributes fade
    Regardless if they are still among us or in the cool earth laid

    Fathers come in a vast assortment of size, temperament and individual personalities…all as God made
    All possess various abilities & talents…some applaud from the side-lines, some lead the parade
    But each passed on their family’s traits and qualities you’d never trade

    So how do YOU remember Dad when memories of him start to invade?
    What’s foremost in your mind? Was he one to come to your aid?
    Was he a person who kept you feeling safe and unafraid?

    The strong leader of the family…providing for their every need?
    Teaching his special skills…everyone is good at something experts have agreed
    What do you remember the most…his wit & sense of humor or an especially generous good deed?

    Perhaps memory brings a hunting or fishing story…a pleasure to recall
    Didn’t he seem INVINCIBLE when you were so very small?
    Did he teach you how to drive a car, ride a bike or catch a ball?

    Those “monsters” under your bed, could his presence quickly slay?
    Could just a “LOOK” be administered & you knew you’d better obey?
    Were their tears in his eyes when he saw you on your wedding day?

    Did he always wear a business suit or over-alls & smell like newly mowed hay?
    Perhaps a military man guarding our shores or professional sports he’d play?
    Educated in law, art, or music, or was it hard work & hard times that taught him to pray?

    Now, biologically we can only have one father…the perfect scenario as a whole
    But it’s not a perfect world or time…circumstances provide events beyond our control
    Causing many children to seek a substitute to fill the father figure role

    Step-fathers, grandfathers, big brothers…those who a child’s life can inspire
    Teacher, pastor, boss, neighbor, coach…all suitable for a child to admire
    Someone to help & encourage that they CAN obtain the goals they desire

    That special male who provided guidance…a solid foundation laid
    Instilling hope and confidence, that they CAN climb life’s steep grade
    ALL these persons can be honored today for the life changing contributes they made

    So no matter what your childhood memories are…wonderful or sad
    Of a loving providing father or that of an absent or abusive dad
    One responsible for our inner strength or one who to our insecurities would add

    Remember, even great fathers still have human faults & flaws
    So everyday we need to STOP!! Just give a meditative pause…
    Consider our FAULTLESS & INFALLIBLE Heavenly Father…the SOURCE from which all love draws

    A giving Father abundant in total mercy, forgiveness & Grace
    A Father WORTHY of all adoration, devotion & worship we can embrace
    And His children can boast “My Father hung the stars in space”

    So He’s the perfect example of what the word FATHER should portray
    As you honor those special men in your life for their self-denial and sacrifice today
    Love & gratitude to the ULTIMATE Father let your heart convey

              On behalf of all the dads out there who for whatever reason can't reply, I thank you all and ask that you send all Father Day cards to Wally and have all gift certificates and bought gifts sent to me since I can't read and Wally does a fine job at reading and sharing.

              I promise to share all the socks, tee shirts and wallets (Empty) with those in needs. All food items will stay with me as I would hate to share a good cake with someone who is watching their waist.

                From all the other Dads out there....(Alex.......... oh well, anyway)


                No cards, no acloades.....

                Simply children who look to us and say: I want to be (want my husband to be) just like Dad....

                Because he was just like Jesus.



                Yea, that is the real Thank You.

                Father In Heaven, Thank You for helping us to be like You.

                And when we're not , May our kids learn a bit more about Your Grace and Mercy.
                It's ALL about Jesus. The Son of God - Emanuel - The Mighty God - Our Salvation.

                  Yes,and for all of those children out there who do not want to grasp Jesus because they are afraid they will be like dad.Jesus is loving,compassionate and full of more Grace than you could ever imagine.

                    Since my earthly father disliked me and disowned me...I will say happy Father's Day to my heavenly Father.

                      That is an awesome idea.

                          I am thankful for a wonderful, loving father of character and integrity who is still with us at the age of 86. Happy (belated) Father's Day to you, Dad!
