I knew a Man; Strength for the Moment

Sometimes in our lives, if we are lucky, we come across people that change our lives for the good. We meet people who prefer you over themselves. We meet people whose word is their bond and you know from just looking in their eyes that you could trust them with your life.During my journey in this world I have encountered few people who could be described by the above paragraph, oh, but I knew a man.

Fond memories of fall and dad

As I was walking my dog Petey this past weekend and noticing a few leaves that had already fallen due to our early fall weather, it reminded me of my dad and our walks in the woods.When I looked at a couple of the wet, yellow leaves, I realized I knew what type of trees they had come from.My dad taught me to tell different types of native trees in our Appalachian forests.

Poor Leah. All she wanted in the world was Jacob’s love. But he only loved her sister, Rachel. (That’s a tough place to be!) Her father had tricked Jacob during the wedding ceremony, substituting the older daughter for the younger daughter. (That must have been some veil!) Jacob was shocked and mad the next morning when he found the wrong sister in his bed. The deceiver had been deceived! The drama unfolds in Genesis 29. Talk about a soap opera!

November’s elections won’t resolve much of anything

By Lee H. HamiltonMembers of Congress are home now, campaigning for the upcoming elections. Their messages are all over the map, and for a good reason: they have very little to brag about.The Congress that just recessed until after the elections makes the 80th — the one that Harry Truman blasted as “do-nothing” — look like a paragon of productivity.

God, how much longer? Strength for the Moment

Second Peter 3:9 9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”Since I was a child I have been taught that Christ would be coming very soon to receive His children. I admit, I sometimes watch the news and remember God’s Word and ask “God, how much longer? Are you not aware of the atrocities that are happe...
