Tweet     The title for this post comes from what I find to be one of the most humorous yet promising statements in all of scripture.  I ripped it off from Peter.  It was statement he made in John 21:3 (King James Version).  Peter made the declaration after a visit from Jesus…after He (Jesus) [...]

Tweet     My cheesy and ripped-off title comes from a thought I had while reading in the book of Numbers. “Eleazar son of Aaron the priest will be responsible for the oil of the lampstand, the fragrant incense, the daily grain offering, and the anointing oil. In fact, Eleazar will be responsible for the [...]

Tweet     So my wife posts on Facebook that she has been charged by a mother elephant protecting her baby.  Why does she get all the fun?  Good thing she was riding in a safari vehicle. Communication is awful but she can hit a few times a day in some places.  At least when [...]
