My gift for you this Sunday . . .

The answer to yesterday's riddle - You take the chicken over first. You go back and get the feed. When you drop the feed off, you take the chicken back over with you. You get the fox and bring him over. Then you go back for the chicken. Now that was so simple wasn't it? LOL
No wonder kids are smarter then us!

I wish I could have figured a way to embed it - but at least I have the address so you can click on it. There is no gift greater then giving your own life for a brother (or another).

Wow ... this video is heartbreaking; without their Faith, one wonders how anyone could go on!

That is such a sad story. I feel so bad for their family. I'll keep them in my prayers.
Very interesting answer to the riddle! I couldn't figure it out.

Have a Great Day!

What a terrific post! I always appreciate your friendship and kind comments. My son came in the top 100. Not too bad considering there were 300 runners in his race! Two of his team mates came in 18 and 25! Amazing! Nick can get a little unfocused and he was struggling with his sinus issues last week. The course was very dusty and he struggled with the dust kicking up into his face. I am not sure anyone is going to like the new course for state competition. The parking is awful. You need a John Deere Tractor to get thru all the hills and valleys in the park lot! Anne

Hi Sandie,
Firstly, how great to find this GodTube through you...many tahnks.
This story was surprising wasn't it? No one expected the strong brother to die for the weaker one..we are all in Gods hand, He alone knows the day and the hour. I am reading a lot obout near death experiences. I see the happiness in this as well as the sadness. Much love Crytsal Mary
