Proverbs 31: A Wife of Noble Character

Who Can Find a Wife of Noble Character? It is not easy to find a virtuous woman in these modern feminist times. Proverbs 31 is from the sayings of King Lemuel, king of Massa and considered an oracle.

Thanksgiving

What is the history of Thanksgiving Day? In December of 1620, a small group of colonists from England landed near Plymouth, Massachusetts, and built a settlement there. The first winter was filled with storms, deprivations, and disease, which took nearly half the colonists’ lives. However, hope was renewed the next year when the harvest proved to be bountiful. Governor William Bradford decreed that December 13 of that year be set aside as a day of feasting and prayer, a day…

How is being a Christian like a pumpkin?

Web www.christianactivities.com //–> How is being a Christian like a pumpkin? God picks you from the pumpkin patch, brings you in, and washes all the dirt off of you.

And the Banner Yet Waves

Staring at a flag, half-mast, I pondered what it could mean. All the beautiful colors, Such an elegant scene. Why does this banner yet wave, Over this land of the free, This home of the brave? A loaded gun in hand. One way to become a man. The enemy he has killed, For freedom to be revealed. A friend or two he has lost, What a tragic, tearful cost. The night, it draws to a close. Yet the fighting rages…
