    I’ve always been fascinated with numbers in the Bible.  I suppose it’s the reliability of numbers that offer me consolation and inspiration.  One cannot change numbers.  2 + 2 will always equal 4.  My next birthday won’t be the number 29 no matter how I wish it to be.  God certainly has a thing for certain numbers and I look forward to asking Him about | Read More »

    “Your First Time”

    "Your First Time"

    There seems to be no low to which President Obama will sink in his desperate attempt to win reelection.  One has to wonder, is there any point at which the main stream media and the public get some self-respect and toss out this loser?  First he asked for your wedding gifts, then your yard sales and now he has asked for your daughters.

The controversial No Child Left Behind education law has been completely | Read More »
