Psalm 100

"Make a Joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.

Serve the LORD with gladness:

Come before His presence with singing.

Know ye that the LORD He is God:

It is He that made us, and not we ourselves;

we are His people, and the sheep of His pasture.

Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,

and into His courts with Praise:

Be thankful unto Him, and bless His name.

For the LORD is good;

His mercy is everlasting;

and His truth endureth to all generations."

                Psalm 100   KJV

Did an Asteroid Impact kill the dinosaurs

The supposed 'fact' that an Asteroid hit the earth millions and millions of years ago and killed all the dinosaurs is taught daily in Public and most Private Schools.

But is this true?  Did this really happen.

And how does anyone know how many millions or billions of years ago various things happened when no one was there recording the history for us?

Today's link has some interesting information for us to consider as we ponder these things.

But one word of warning (ok more than one word ) -- when you click on the link below, you might think you have come to a blank page -- but you really haven't -- it is just that for some reason the introcuctory picture might not come up -- so just scroll down a tad and you will find the article.

And now with that by way of introduction --

Fannie Crosby

Fannie Crosby was a famous Hymn Writer.

In fact she wrote so many that she often used a pseudonym for her name so the hymnal wouldn't be 'wall to wall' hymns by her.

You have probably noticed that we often use Hymns by Fannie Crosby during our Sunday Hymn Music selections (as we will tomorrow, for example).

The picture here shows her wearing dark glasses.  Why?

Because she was blind from shortly after birth.

To read a short summary about her remarkable life

Top 10 Intelligent Animals

This video is really interesting.

Why?  you ask

Well it shows some of the intelligent things that animals do.

Just ignore the long ages comment about ants. 

How does anyone know that they existed thousands or millions of years before humans? 

That totally contradicts the Bible.

And if they were around before humans,
then who told us that 'little factoid'?

So avoid such old earth comments

but other than that, and a few other old earth comments,

this is a really interesting and educational short video

and you will definitely enjoy seeing what these smart animals can do.

Looks like a Creator endowed them with a lot of wonderful abilities.
