Sometimes I wonder who the people are that let their pets die at the Shelter. The ones who allow their dogs to roam at will because, after all, "they are in the county." There are some dogs that stick close to home. But many are looking for love in all the wrong places like many of the strays that arrive at the Shelter. That can be fixed with the spay or neuter! And we all know the only safe cat is an indoor cat! We all see too many that didn't make it, scattered like trash along the side of the roads. Sometimes they starve, because after all dogs rely on us. Really sad, isn't it?

Beverly Wilson's children's sermon was about the 'Trinity'. She peeled a boiled egg to show that three things can be enclosed in one thing. The 'Trinity' is composed of God the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ) and the Holy Spirit.
I want to say thank you today. Thank you to the veterans who are in the Church triumphant and served this great country called the United States of America. I want to thank you because you gave yourself to something that you believed to be greater than just yourself, you gave yourself to a cause called freedom. A freedom earned so that I can sit in the comforts of my home here in Nashville at a computer and type these words without fear of having my Bible out on my desk. Thank you.
