We can do better; it’s not impossible

The world is full of impossible things.

Just think about it.

Do you really think they can take prayer out of schools? Have you ever watched a bunch of students taking a test? What are they silently saying?

If you could read their lips, you would know even those who frequently use swear words recognize a higher power and beseech his power to inspire an open mind to succeed with a passing grade.

Likewise, do you think global warming is within man’s power to control?

Even Mr. Christian Dohm, a world renowned geologist, whom I flew for, stated that one volcano erpuption can put more particles in the atmosphere than a hundred years of mankind’s industry!

Possibly another example of the impossibility of occurring is the reversing the “something for nothing plague,” which is running our country into bankruptcy, or in other words putting our great-great grandchildren in impossibly dire debt.

Have you ever heard a politician not promise a new program? One that will lessen the responsibility of citizens to provide for their own family. How about the grandfather who adopted all his grandchildren to maximize his “entitlement,” and our bureaucratic pointing out this “loophole.”

Folks, without preaching, don’t you think families should care for their own?

Even the greatest book ever written gives us the promise, “Prove me now here with faith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.” This was the prophet Malachi.

Chapter 3, Verse 10 concerning paying a tithe!

Hey! Can’t we do better! This is not impossible!
