He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it. But because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me. (John 8:44-45) More ...

MISSING PETS? More ...
BEWARE of the COYOTE! It is NOT safe to allow your pet to go outside by itself, especially at night. Just recently, we heard of a suspected coyote attack on a 30 pound dog in Nashville when the owner let it out to potty. Her leg is badly hurt. Many people report being tracked by them when walking their pets or hearing their howling. Leaving pet food outside, for example, encourages them, as they are scavengers.
