For Those Who Have Gone Before Me- Thank You!

2014-05-16 18.40.52Thank a veteran.

Today is Veterans Day in the United States. A day for honoring the men and women of our armed service.

Pick Up A Toothpick!

Armed with not much more than a tooth pick he went to war. What would cause a man to defend or to engage in warfare of this sort? Obviously overpowered he won. 600 men dead in his wake.

Sometimes the people you meet will surprise you beyond your wildest imagination.

Judges 3:31 After Ehud came Shamgar son of Anath, who struck down six hundred Philistines with an oxgoad. He too saved Israel. Continue reading Pick Up A Toothpick!
