Justin Kollmeyer's picture

Yesterday, Nov. 11, was Veterans Day, and so we rise again to honor all who have served in our United States military. Thank you. God bless you. I thought it important to remember the history of Veterans Day and to share a prayer.

The History Channel website reminds us that on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, was declared between the Allied nations (including the U.S.) and Germany in World War I, then known as “the Great War.” Read More»

Are you a forgiving person?

Dr. David L. Chancey's picture

A lady became ill and checked into the hospital for tests. The results came back and the doctor walked into her room and said, “Ma’am, I’m afraid I have some bad news. You have rabies. You better make out your will as soon as possible.”

He left her and several hours later stopped by again. He saw a paper filled out with numerous names listed and said, “You must have a lot of people you want to remember in your will.”

The lady said, “Oh, I haven’t started my will. This is a list of people I’m going to bite as soon as I get out of here.” Read More»
