    Every time I go to Savannah, especially if I'm going to the south side, I take hwy 204. The reason is that a floor covering store on that route flies a huge (I think 30x50 ft.) American flag, and it's on a tall enough pole that it gets a lot of...

    Blackwater replied to a thread Copperheads in Our Town
    My favorite place to fish is the Ogeechee River, a smallish fairly swift running blackwater river (which I assumed my "handle" from) and one of the few left that's basically "pure." The banks are festooned with overhanging limbs, willows, and all...

    :^) Gladly. And thanks. I now realize how that could be read. What I MEANT to say (and didn't, exactly) was that when we sin, it'll always boomerang and come back to us in some form that causes us some sort or type of pain. Is that better? If...

    The original question here indicates the sender is a person who simply has the wrong impression of God. It seems clear that he is one of those who see god as some "Sugar Daddy in the Sky." This is an erroneous perception of God, and thus, cannot...

    I am very reluctant to make any claims of understanding Revelations, but when He comes, I think it will be something that we'll ALL be able to see. How He might do this, I would not even hazard a guess on, but we'll see it. All of us. Will he...

    This passage always reminds me that what we hear, and how we answer, aren't always completely congruent with each other. It also illustrates how one word can mean several things, or degrees of things. The "feed my sheep" part, I think, clearly...

    You might call some of those people that have all that night equipment that go out in search of Bigfoot. They could probably give a hundred and fourteen reasons for those lights floating across your porch.

    Here in Conroe Texas our Copperhead snakes do seem to be rather timid unless provoked. They do love to eat Cicadas as they are emerging from the ground under our white oak trees. There are no emergent holes under the pine trees that I have found. ...
