Memorial Day – Thoughts and Remembrance – Click Title to Read

Memorial Day provides us the opportunity to solemnly remember and say thank you to all who have sacrificed and served. Without exception, I think back to the days my family members (father, uncles, nephews and cousins), friends and myself were in harms way and the sacrifices made to preserve the freedoms of the people of this great land. I firmly believe it should be mandatory for every American to watch the movies ‘D-Day’ and ‘We Were Soldiers’. By doing so, it would provide an understanding of what is required to preserve the freedoms, so many today, are willingly giving away by turning a deaf ear and blind eye as their freedoms are being eroded and stripped away! As we honor the soldiers, airmen and sailors (men and women), we must never forget to pay tribute to ...

Obama: Crime Created by ‘System,’ Successful People ‘Just Lucky,’ ‘Wasn’t Nothin’ You Did’

In his commencement speech to the graduating class at Howard University last weekend, President Obama excused crime in the African American community as something fostered by an “unfair and unjust” system.  He also said successful people were “just lucky” and hinted they didn’t make their success; “It wasn’t nothin’ you did,” he insisted.  Obama appeared at the historically African American Howard University on May 7 to send the graduates off into the world with some inspiring words. But much of what the president said was less inspirational and more conspiratorial.

In 2 Kings 7, we read of a land ravaged by famine

In 2 Kings 7, we read of a land ravaged by famine and cut off from supplies by their enemies. But right in the middle of their troubles, God told Elisha that tomorrow there would be an abundance of flour and barley. How did it happen? God used four lepers! The lepers went to the enemy camp and discovered it totally empty. There was enough food to feed all of Samaria. No matter what, we must not accept defeat; instead, cling to God’s Word, cast out Satan,and believe to see the deliverance of the Lord! Le Le Longsdorf

Often we may wonder why God does not heal us immediately when we pray

Often we may wonder why God does not heal us immediately when we pray. Perhaps He says, “Let patience have her perfect work” (James 1:4) because the trial of your faith is “much more precious than gold” (1 Pet. 1:7). As He works to bring forth His character in us, we can “count it all joy” (James 1:2)… for He has said, “If you would believe, you would see the glory of the Lord” (John 11:40). Oh, how I suffered for 7 years during my teenage years because of my constant skin problems that I called “leprosy.” How often I devoured the gospels and studied the recorded healings of Jesus. “Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God” (Rom. 10:17). But when God touched me and healed me in the twinkling of an e...

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr June 1965, Oberlin Ohio “[Oberlin College] President Carr, members of the faculty, and members of the graduating class of this great institution of learning, ladies and gentlemen: I can never come to this campus without a deep sense of appreciation and gratitude for all that this great institution has done for the cultural, political, and social life of our nation and the world.

Scientists have discovered a personality difference between entrepreneurs and employees

by DRAKE BAER Around 13% of Americans are starting or running their own companies. Almost everyone else is an employee. We may have found out the difference between the two types. According to a 2013 Swiss-German study, the difference lies in disposition: While an employee is a specialist, an entrepreneur is a jack-of-all-trades. “Entrepreneurs differ from employees in that they must be sufficiently well versed in a whole set of entrepreneurial skills,” write Uschi Backes-Gellner of the University of Zurich in Switzerland and Petra Moog of the University of Siegen in Germany.
