The video below is still the best, most stirring Memorial Day Tribute I’ve ever found.
May God Bless our brave military men and women, too many of whom have sacrificed EVERYTHING to protect our freedom. They are the reason we can spend today cooking hot dogs and hamburgers with our family.

This Easter helped me put some things I’ve been thinking about into perspective.
I realize that we’re up against some seriously evil powers intent on destroying everything decent in our nation, with good people and institutions all that stands in their way. However, we can’t defeat those who wish us harm all by ourselves, and must turn to God if we expect to win this fight for the soul of America.
So here is my heartfelt prayer for this country of ours:
Surprise, surprise: Pope Francis and the Catholic Church are still wholly against abortion, in all instances.
Huh. Who knew?
Well, apart from everyone other than the liberal MSM wishful-thinkers and their dwindling number of readers.
But if you were to ask a random group of people what they “love” about Christmas (the day AND the season), you’d probably get answers ranging from giving/receiving gifts, to time off from work, to spending time with family.
And while those things can certainly be gratifying, there’s no question that they are also ephemeral by their very nature:
- Your ‘shake weight‘ now resides in the back of a closet somewhere, waiting for the day when you “get around to using it…”,
- You DID go back to work, …or you will soon,
- And the family, eventually, puts away the Christmas decorations, and goes back to the daily and weekly routines.
Yet there IS one Christmas gift which never loses its beauty, and is the greatest “gift” of all time:
God’s gift of His Son.
This post from our good friend “Pgh” was a wonderful reminder last year of how and why we should always give thanks, no matter our circumstances.
We’re honored to be able to share it with you again.

Every year, on the Tuesday evening before Thanksgiving Day, our congregation gathers to celebrate the Lord’s Supper. And, while we seek to be in a mind of praise and thankfulness EVERY day, there’s something about this particular evening that sharpens that focus.
It is truly a time of praise, worship, and thanksgiving.
This particular Tuesday evening, our Pastor delivered a message on “The Power of Giving Thanks“. It will change MY life forever, and from the heart, I would like to share his thoughts with you.
An older but highly pertinent post from one of our ‘Guest Noggins’, Greg Ward.
We often hear the adage “those who fail to learn from History are doomed to Repeat it“. Too bad that, even now, people fail to take its meaning to heart.
If you’re a God-fearing person, I’d suggest you put down anything breakable before reading further.

With high-ranking Democratic officials listening reverently in the Iowa state capitol, a liberal activist and union official on Wednesday led a prayer for increased funding for abortions, for greater access to abortions, for doctors who perform abortions, and for what she called “the blessing of choice.”
