    Nobody wants to hear it, but adversity CAN be our best friend. Nobody enjoys going through adversities, but they CAN serve to bring our minds more in line with the wisdom, direction and advice that the Lord left for us to follow. We're supposed to...

    Ghost, it's good that you have eyes and the heart to see it. His hand doesn't shout and beat a drum on its arrival. It just goes about thing very casually and naturally. Only those with eyes to see can discern it at work. Prayers up for Holly...

    "God does not keep His child immune from trouble; He promises, “I will be with him in trouble…” (Psalm 91:15)" Indeed! And while so many of us cry out "why me?" when we're in any sort of trouble, or are being tested, God consistently lets us...

    PB, I've long said that the most reliable and significant mark of a true, mature Christian is their humility. They may be rich, powerful or any of a number of things. But if they're truly Christian, and mature in their faith, then they'll...

    Often, when we manage to put Christ first in our lives, we find ourselves being blessed in ways we'd never really considered. And the blessings are always better than what we had in mind. It seems like our mortal minds are too small and...

    The best target stands I've ever used were made of 2x2's. I bought 4 8 or 10' 2x2's, and cut two @ 6' long, which was long enough to put them over the soybeans I sometimes shot over. I've never met a situation where they didn't work, and work...

    Very new to the Garand. I might have a chance to by one. Do you have to do anything to the gas system to get cast loads to cycle reliably? Sounds like the 311299 and 4895 is a good starting place.
