Open your wallet right now. What cards do you find? Most folks have a driver’s license, right? Then there are the military ID, school ID, work ID cards. You probably have multiple insurance cards – health, auto, life, home, Medicare. How about a debit card or some other bank card – maybe even a credit card? I hope you have a voter registration card, too.

A lady was selling birds at the town plaza and she had all kinds of pretty birds in different cages. It had been years since we had our last parakeet so I called my wife to see what she thought about us getting another bird. She agreed, if I took care of it.

Trump’s grease crayon fiasco over Hurricane Dorian’s destructive path had a disconcerting similarity to Sesame Street’s “The Great Cookie Thief” story read to my pre-Kindergarten son in 1979, https://is.gd/W48e1e. His level of crazy thought it prudent to contradict Weather Service experts warning millions in the way, although creating unnecessary fear for Alabamans.

TOMATOES were once thought to be poisonous. When tomatoes were first introduced in the 15th century, Europeans noticed the increased mortality in those who frequently ate tomatoes, and concluded the plant was poisonous. In actuality, the acidity of the tomato released the lead in the pewter tableware of the period. It was the lead that killed ‘em.

Have you ever thought about how our past actually led to our salvation? God could have made us all perfect, however we live lives separate from God until we finally surrender unto the Lord. Perhaps we need to know that without us falling, we would never have come to know Jesus as Lord, much less know how much we need him. Truth is, all people, since the fall of mankind, when Adam and Eve did sin, are born into sin, we all fall short of the mark, but Jesus Christ came to set us free!

The Liberty Bell was first rung to call Philadelphia together to hear the first time reading of the Declaration of Independence aloud. During the Revolutionary war, as the British approached Philadelphia in 1777, the Liberty Bell was quickly hidden in Zion Reform Church in Allentown to avoid the British from melting her down to produce musket balls.

If we say we have fellowship with God, but do not truly love Him in our actions and deeds, that fellowship is weak at best! Draw near unto God with a pure heart! If we love Him we will obey Him, and our fellowship with God will be sweet, as we continually seek Him and His will for our lives.

As a parent, you are your child’s first and most important teacher. When parents and families are involved in their children’s schools, the children do better and have better feelings about going to school. In fact, many studies show that what the family does is more important to a child’s school success than how much money the family makes or how much education the parents have. There are many ways that parents can support their children’s learning at home and throughout the school year. Here are some ideas to get you started:
