  • Did you know that more people believe in heaven than hell? Even if they do not believe in the actual existence of the place, almost everyone has their own concept. Some people believe it’s where all the “cool people” go, and that only fuddy-duddies go to heaven. They laugh and joke about the wild parties that take place, and that the “real” party won’t start until once they arrive. Others believe we are living in hell now and that our only escape is by death into heaven.

  • Here is the stimulas package America needs to come up with. It is very simple.

  • “I have not seen or heard from my son in four weeks. I know he was alive a month ago because he stopped by his grandparent’s house asking for food and money. You see, my son is running from multiple warrants for drug possession. I know that he has guns, and I’m afraid he’ll kill himself or someone else–including me. I’m actually praying he will get arrested and go to prison so that he can at least realize that he has a problem.

  • After the article on Jeptha Knob, this scribe just had to go up there and take a look. I took several photos of the magnificent view and what must be meteorite debris. There were some huge boulders and many colorful small pieces. I may as well make it clear immediately that I was there by invitation. The property on the knob is all private. You can’t just drive up there because locked gates won’t allow it.

  • The environments of many of our landscapes have changed because of storm damage to trees.  A once shady refuge beneath a tree may now be baking in the sun.  For a garden with an eastern exposure this may not be a deal breaker but if the garden faces west then the afternoon sun will surely stress shade tolerant plants by the time summer rolls around.

  • “The saloon is a liar. It promises good cheer and sends sorrow. It promises prosperity and sends adversity. It promises happiness and sends misery.... It is God’s worst enemy and the devil’s best friend.” - Billy Sunday

    The issue of alcohol has always been a controversial one within the Christian community. Did Jesus make, or advocate the use of, intoxicating wine? Is having an occasional drink really that big of a deal? These are certainly valid questions that committed Christians have asked over the years.
