1. There were 220 blogger posts on Jennifer’s site last week. I don’t read all of them, but there are 15 or so that I read on a regular basis. As the week goes on I’ll go back and read some others. The blogs are inspiring, humorous, heartwarming and what is more important, they bring the word of God into focus. Thank you Jennifer for allowing me to learn and share with these beautiful people. Thank you to all you bloggers for writing and please continue.

3. Sometimes we think that we need to do one particular thing correctly to please God. One thing above all others that will secure our religious belief and make us a good Christian. Tuck @ Denbigh Church of Christ wrote about this very issue and concluded that again it is a simple matter, but one that should be repeated so that we don’t forget.
“You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.
This is the greatest and the first commandment.
The second is like it:* You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
The whole law and the prophets depend on these two commandments.” (Matthew 22:37-40)
6. A short story on how Biscuit Hill Road, located in Rhode Island, got it’s name. It occurred in 1781 during George Washington's march from Newport, Rhode Island to Yorktown, Virginia. He was joined by Jean Baptiste de Vimeur, comte de Rochambeau. Artist David R. Wagner has recreated it in a beautiful painting.
7. Tomorrow is our grand daughter Eryn's birthday. She will be eight years old. Dee is having lunch with her at school today. Dee put together 30 birthday party favors for Eryn to share with her school friends. Grandma Dee is always there to support her grandchildren. One of the many reasons I'm blessed to have her as my wife.
