When you hear the word “patriotism” what’s the first name that pops into your head?
And God said, “Let the earth put forth vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind, upon the earth.” And it was so. The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed according to their own kinds, and trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. And there was evening and there was morning, a third day.
The analogy becomes a contrast in the matter of how many may win. In the earthly contest, only one receives the prize; but in the heavenly contest, every man may do so, since his victory does not depend upon any relationship between his achievement and the achievement of his fellow contestant.
Our entire neighborhood was once rolling hills of pasture and farmland. A couple of years ago, a kickball accidentally landed in a dense stand of trees, vines, thorns, and weeds, at the back of our property.
Dr. Elton Stubblefield, a director of DNA research at the M. D. Anderson Hospital in Houston, recently declared in a public address that each cell (and, remember there are trillions of them) at the moment of conception is supplied with a library of one quarter of a million words commanding that cell exactly how many times to multiply, and when to die.
Remember when you were young, how dark woods were frightening, and the open closet door across your bedroom held unknown terrors, or of the creepy things hiding under your bed?
Finally! Someone has written a book that is long overdo for the over indulgent parents of this country. Across the Earth, far too many people in every society have been mentally conditioned, their environments prepped, and attitudes altered for our “modern” world.
Our lives get busy, the day grows long, perhaps we’ve binged more than we care to admit, and before we know it is time to go to bed. Have we remembered to pray throughout the day?
Since faith comes by hearing God’s word (Romans 10:17), it follows that walking by faith means walking as directed by God’s word.
One of these little ones … is a characteristic reference of Jesus to those who are “babes in Christ,” whose faith is young and weak.
Amidst the ceasing of Roaring, one major trend still managed to sweep the nation: washing your clothes with gasoline!
Every housewife on Main St. could be found hitting up the local filling station, returning home with a reeking, volatile jug of gasoline, and submerging her delicates in it to get out those pesky grass stains.
As in most of the others, with regard to committing adultery, GOD did not give a reason for this prohibition. NONE WAS NEEDED.
The Wizard of Oz is one of the most beloved movies in the history of cinema, but don’t you think it was missing a little something? Namely, the deft directorial touch of Barry Mahon, whose other films include Fanny Hill Meets Dr. Erotico, The Diary of Knockers McCalla, and a little movie called Santa and The Ice Cream Bunny?
Our very civilization today is under attack by all the forces of evil, and the home is primarily the focus of that attack. The beginning of all law and order lies right here in Commandment V. The home is the place where the young human must learn to accept and honor authority. And if he does not do so in the home, he becomes a troublemaker in school, and soon graduates to the police court.
Our favorite agrarians from summer and autumn are back once again to tackle the icy chills of winter.
Do you find that you’re sleeping a little too well as of late? That your dreams are of the innocuous stripe, i.e., old friends turning into llamas and eating your baseball hat, rather than full out, scream-yourself-awake nightmares followed by 15 minutes of sweating and shallow breathing interrupted by occasional anxiety-induced “whale flips” that rip the covers off your significant other?
Jim and Bill are two of the classic “middle-aged teenagers” type we’re used to in Coronet shorts. They agree on most things: they wear the same white button-down shirt, sport the same haircut, rock the same sweater vest. One has brown hair and one is blonde, yes, but they’ve managed to be friends in spite of that. However they do disagree on something, something so big it could tear their whole world apart: THE IMPORTANCE OF OUTLINING AN ESSAY.
Reckless Bill thinks you can just march into an essay on a topic like “Benjamin Franklin” without planning a meticulous outline. Cautious, wise Jim, on the other hand, knows that you must not only plan out your outline, you must first build an outline for an essay on the subject of how important it is to build outlines (he actually does this).
Who will be proven right, in the end? Will their friendship survive the outline battle? Will either of their essays get deeper than “Ben Franklin flew a kite in a storm”? You’ll have to join Mike, Kevin, and Bill for Building An Outline to find out! No outlining required!
What is an Ice Cream Bunny? We’re not quite sure, and the movie doesn’t really bother to explain. Evidently he has a fire truck with an air raid siren, and lives at a place called Pirates World. We also know that we are strongly in favor of ceding all power to it and letting it enact whatever foul agenda it desires, just as long as it lets us take a ride through Pirates World in that sweet, sweet fire truck.
It’s one of the strangest and most baffling pieces of outsider art that Mike, Kevin and Bill have ever riffed. Please join us in experiencing: Santa & the Ice Cream Bunny.
This is the sick, sad tale of young Willie and his demented belief in a talking paper bag, whom he names Mr. Paperbag (proving that “crazy” and “creative” don’t always go hand in hand) is the stuff of legend. Their nightly adventures to the forests of the American South will remind you of Bonnie & Clyde, if you don’t know anything about Bonnie & Clyde and assume that they mostly talked about paper. Willie learns a lot from his creepy little friend, primarily about the meaning of loss as Mr. Paperbag crumples and dies before his very eyes! (no, seriously, that happens!)
Such is the darkness of the epic tragedy of mankind, lost in sin, without God, and without hope in the world, until they shall turn to the Lord Jesus Christ.
