Bible Challenge - "SOLDIERS AND WARFARE"
Good Evening to All!
Tonight, I am doing things a little backwards. We've been having a pretty heavy lightning and rain storm. My Internet Connection Provider is Hughes Net Satellite, so needless to say, when the weather doesn't cooperate, neither does Hughes Net. I am just now able to get on, but have been trying for hours.
Rather than spending a lot of time thinking about my post and what God wants me to say, tonight I have decided to do the Bible Challenge because I'm afraid I will get partially done with my post and the Internet Connection will drop. Hopefully tomorrow I will be more successful at getting connected and staying connected to the Internet and be able to do a very insightful and God-given post.
