Prayer, Thought for Today

To the God of gods, the only Creator of all things, thank You for this day that is not promised to me to see its end, so I just want to thank You for this moment and pray that others will do the same when their feet touch the floor if they are able, if not, pray to the ceiling or wall. I do not want a rock to cry out for me in saying "Thank You" for me, and others should not want that to happen for them.

Digilio wasn’t about to give the ball back to McGwire since “He never came to Astoria to give us anything.” Greed doesn’t look good on anyone, does it? Their actions are in stark contrast with Tim…

(Luke 18:17) The story is told of a brilliant professor at Princeton Seminary who always left his graduation class with these words: “Gentlemen, there is still much in this world and in the Bible that I do not understand, but of one thing I am certain—‘Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so’—and gentlemen, that is sufficient!” Without doubt the song that has been sung more by children than any other hymn is this simply stated one by Anna Warner. Written in 1860, it is still one of the first hymns taught to new converts in other lands. Miss Warner wrote this text in collaboration with her sister Susan. It was part of their novel Say and Seal, one of the best selling books of that day. Today few individuals would know or remember the plot of that story, which once stirred the hearts of many readers. But the sim…
