10 Most Astonishing Electron Microscope Pictures

The Electron Microscope takes pictures of really really really small things or the really really small details of things that you can see but the small details aren't readily visible.

The detail and the complexity of these things  -- is such that one wonders

how could this have happened by chance changes of evolution?????

Hmmmm.  Makes you wonder if there is a CREATOR and not just random chance producing these complex details.

Check out these images (actually there are more than 10) and see if you think these are just accidents of nature (i.e. evolution)

Remember -- when Darwin came up with his ideas about evolution -- he had no way of knowing or seeing the images you will see here.  He thought things were really really simple.

The microscopes of Darwin's day couldn't even begin to show these details.

Today is the first day of Hanukkah

Today begins the 8 day Jewish Holiday of Hanukkah (Chanukah).

You may have also heard of this Festival / holiday by its other name ‘the Festival of Lights.’

As Noted on the Chabad website, this holiday is a celebration of two miracles:

1) “The 2nd century BCE victory of a small, greatly outnumbered and out-armed army of Jews, known as the "Maccabees," over the mighty Greek army that occupied the Holy Land. The rebellion was in response to the Greek attempt to force a Hellenistic G-dless lifestyle on the Jewish inhabitants of Israel.”

2) “The kindling of a seven-branched Menorah (candelabra) was an important component of the daily service in the Holy Temple. When the Maccabees liberated the Temple from the hands of the Greek invaders, they found only a small cruse of pure and undefiled olive oil fit for fueling the Menorah. The problem was, it was sufficient to light the Menorah only for one day, and it would take eight days to produce new pure oil. Miraculously, the oil burned for eight days and nights.”

Today is Thanksgiving day

Today is Thanksgiving -- perhaps my favorite holiday of the year.


Well, certainly because of the yummy food and fun fellowship with family and friends --

But also and especially because of how and why this special day originated.

You have heard many stories about the origin of this special day.

And you may have heard of Squanto and his role in the occasion.

Recently an article in an email from the eNews had a really good summary of the events that preceded and ultimately resulted in the origin of this very special and important Holiday.

Hymn: Trust and Obey

This is a familiar and well loved hymn.


When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word,
What a glory He sheds on our way!
While we do His good will, He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.

Refrain:  Trust and obey, for there’s no other way To be happy in Jesus,
but to trust and obey.

Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt or a fear, not a sigh or a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.

Not a burden we bear, not a sorrow we share,
But our toil He doth richly repay;
Not a grief or a loss, not a frown or a cross,
But is blessed if we trust and obey.

But we never can prove the delights of His love
Until all on the altar we lay;
For the favor He shows, for the joy He bestows,
Are for them who will trust and obey.

Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at His feet,
Or we’ll walk by His side in the way;
What He says we will do, where He sends we will go;
Never fear, only trust and obey.

HERE'S THE LINK to Trust and Obey.

Did 'Nature' invent Oxygen carrying systems twice?

As you look around you and observe the amazing complexities of everything (animals, plants, humans, galaxies, our earth, etc. etc. etc.)

Daylight Savings Time Ends Reminder

This is your heads up reminder that tonight, this Saturday night (well, technically in the wee hours of Sunday morning), Daylight Savings Time ends because

                            It is “Fall Back time.”

So, be sure to change allllll your clocks and timers and everything that ‘blinks when the power goes out’ BACK one hour before you go to bed tonight (Saturday night).

If you don’t do this, you'll be an hour early to church!  And, if you are a Baptist, I guess that means you will be the early bird making the coffee and putting out the donuts.   : )

Anyway, Sunday will be a 25 hour day, so, joy and happiness, you get another hour of sleep tonight !!!!

Also, this is a good time change the batteries in your smoke detectors.

And if you would like to know the ‘history’ of Daylight Savings time and why we are doing all these changes, well,
