Rainbow Reclaimed!

LGBT Activists Mock Christian Ministry's Decision to Reclaim Rainbow - by T StarnesThe man behind the world-famous Ark Encounter has decided to reclaim "God's rainbow" - announcing the massive ark exhibit will be permanently bathed in rainbow lights.



"We now have new permanent rainbow lights at the  Ark Encounter so all can see that it is God's rainbow and He determines its meaning in Genesis 6," Answers in Genesis founder Ken Ham announced on Facebook. 
"The rainbow is a reminder God will never again judge the wickedness of man with a global Flood—next time the world will be judged by fire," he said.  
The 500-foot-long ark is the centerpiece of the biblical theme park based in Williamstown, Kentucky. Hundreds of thousands of visitors have toured the replica of Noah's Ark.
"The Ark is lit permanently at night with a rainbow to remind the world that God owns it and He decreed it's a sign of His covenant with man after the Flood—Ch…

College Football: Good, Bad, Ugly @ Wheaton College, Illinois

Oh, boy. Got this email from Wheaton College, IL ....
Dear Campus Community,

Today, we learned that law enforcement will bring charges against five current Wheaton students arising out of an incident that took place in 2016 amongst members of the football team. The conduct we discovered as a result of our investigation into this incident was entirely unacceptable. The College has fully cooperated with law enforcement in their investigation. To not impede the law enforcement investigation, the College was bound by confidentiality and unable to share information until now.

Wheaton aspires to provide an educational environment that is not only free of hazing of any kind but practices our values as a Christian community, as outlined in our Community Covenant. When this incident was brought to our attention by members of the football team and coaching staff in March 2016, the College took swift action to initiate a thorough investigation, including engaging an independent external investigato…

Family & Wheaton College Lean on Jesus

These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.

Warts and All

I had one common wart located on my left little finger which I showed to my Dermatologist. Common Warts are hardy and are caused by the HPV virus (ewww, sounds gross!). Since its location is on the outermost layer of skin,  Doc said my immune system is as concerned with it as much as I would be concerned for the far-away state of Alaska (I am in the Midwest, USA). That is why, if left untreated and on its own, the wart may take my immune system over a year to zap.


No thanks; I wanted quick action, so he recommended the over-the-counter Compound W Fast Acting Liquid: a bottled concentration ofSalicylic Acid(17% -- at this strength, it is never to be applied to the face). I was to apply it once at night on my little finger (it stung!) and cover the wart with a strip of duct tape while I slept. Personally, I chose not to apply it every night; more like every 3rd or 4th night. I stopped after a couple of weeks. Doc says it's when skin lines are seen on the spot once again that the wa…

George Washington Carver: Peanut Day 2017

No one knows the date of George Washington Carver's birth, so let me celebrate this great man on National Peanut Day which is coming up on Wednesday, September 13, 2017 
Random thoughts for the day: 1) One of my favorite heroes is George Washington Carver. He became one of my heroes not because of his accomplishments (which were many) but because of the way God worked in his life. 2) By God's wonderful Grace he overcame lots of things in life. To start with, he was born a slave from a family of twelve. Carver had 10 sisters and a brother, all of whom died prematurely. He was the only one that lived an abundant life. 3) Three years ago, I was reading some things about him and it was said that he once asked God to reveal to him the secret of the Universe. By his testimony, he said that God told him that He can not do that for him, but told him that He will reveal to himthe secret of the peanut. He went on to develop over 300 peanut products.
4) George Washington Carver believed he c…

Hurricane Irma: Storing Drinking-Water

This is just a little PSA in case you too are having problems finding water. Buy you some gallon-size ziplock bags and freeze them standing up. It will not only help keep your freezer colder in case power outage, it also gives you good drinking water. It's also cheaper than a case of water at the moment. Please feel free to share it might help someone else out in need

Hurricane Irma: Helpful Hints from a Harvey Survivor

To my Florida friends and family... Some things I learned about hurricane damage management. Plastic bags 1/3 filled with watermake  good substitutes for sandbags at doorways
Paint cans or 5-gallon bucketscan support and elevate your furniture if you are going to get water in your house.
Wear clothes to bednothing looks worse than seeing people on the news in water logged nightgowns and boxer shorts. Plus it is helpful slogging through the water at night.
If you get water up to your electrical outletsor you evacuate, trip the main breaker. A volunteer was electrocuted and died here walking in knee deep water due to power being on at a house he was going to check on.
Wear hard soled shoes and gloves if you wade in water
Use duct tape to seal your garage door to the floor to prevent water intrusion
Everyone should have an I.D., a whistle and a flashlight on them once the rain comes.
Have a queen or king sized white flat sheet to signal for help from boats and helicopters.
