Take a look at this time lapse photography taken on August 31, 2009 of one of the California wild fires.
The wildfires are often caused by carelessness.
Let us not be careless with our tongue. It can be as destructive as a wildfire. Remember what James wrote,
“Even so the tongue is a little member,
and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!
“ And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity; so is the tongue among our member, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and is set on fire of hell.
“For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind:
“But the tongue can no man tame;
it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.”
~James 3, verses 5-8
Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
The task ahead of us is never as great as
the power behind us when we are in God’s will.
while others see an endless hope.
Joke of the Day
No one ever believed Jim when he told them the size of the fish he caught, so he purchased a scale, and hired a notary public to accompany him fishing, and document the weights of the fish.
One day, a woman had an emergency delivery of a baby by the dock while Jim and his notary were preparing their boat. The doctor on the scene noticed the scales, borrowed them, and announced: “Mrs. Johnson, you're the mother of a 37 pound boy!”
