I saw the greatest rainbow ever coming home from work the other day. Often you see bits of a rainbow or both legs but this was a perfect bow that seemed to stretch from downtown Terrell to downtown Crandall. It was vivid as none before. I was awestruck. Yet, if you looked closely there was a

I remember seeing some shorts to a movie once where a millionaire agrees to pay a couple a million dollars if the wife will sleep with him for one night. What would you do? The answer to that question tests your character. Impatience is often willing to sleep with the enemy to achieve it's

Good old Spurgeon says that some of the promises are like the almond tree--they blossom hastily in the very earliest spring. But, he says, there are others, which resemble the mulberry tree- -they, are very slow in putting forth their leaves. Then what is a man to do, if he has a mulberry tree
