    Blackwater replied to a thread Yellow Jackets in Our Town
    Yellow jackets are as dangerous or probably much moreso than a rattlesnake, and I do not exaggerate here! When I was growing up, and very occasionally since then, we'd read of a farmer on his tractor or a man on a bulldozer hitting a jacket nest,...

    Thanks, Paul. I sure am glad we got that guy! Great man, as far as his talents and dedication to his purposes went, but very bad for his fellow man. It's a shame such talent and ability has to die, in order for folks to be free.

    Lord, please be with this man who needs your healing hand so direly. Your will be done, but we ask most earnestly that you spare this man, whose helping hand has meant so much to so many for so long. Grant it, I pray, and thank you for hearing...

    Blackwater replied to a thread Do you witness in Our Chapel
    Great comment, Jim! All we need to do to "witness" many times, is just crack the door open, and leave it to later to try to widen that gap, and let some light in. Most people, I firmly believe, are NOT won by a single event, but by repeated...

    When I was a kid, I knew all the folks at my little church, including who could be trusted and just how far. I also had a pretty good idea of whose flowery prayers may not have gotten beyond the ceiling, and whose humble prayers were heard loud and...

    Wow! These are really tough losses for us older types. I think God gave man dogs so we could see what agape love really looks like - unconditional commitment. Be at peace, Smokey. He will live on within you forever.

    Great message! I've seen WAY too many professing Christians think that just being tempted is a sin, and obviously, it's not. Even Christ was tempted! Remember in the wilderness when Satan himself tempted Him? But He didn't break, and it's only...

    Witnessing is a really indistinct word, at least in the way you're using it here. We witness, whether we intend to or not, in everything we do and say and the manner with which we carry ourselves, daily. We can't NOT witness, when you get right...

    H110/296 does NOT like air space. Fill case with powder to the bottom of the boolit. A bit compressed is not a bad thing.
