Going on Offense and Defense
Sunday Bowl 57 between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles showcased some of the best offense and defense ever seen in football.
True, the offenses were better in the Chiefs 38-35 win, but both teams made it to the big game by playing good defense. Philadelphia, the best defensive team in the NFL, didn’t live up to that billing in the second half–and lost.

Be Faith Full

My USA Midterm Elections Plea
There are three primary ways we can make a positive difference in people’s lives.
First, in every country, you can intercede for God to intervene, save, and bless the affairs of individuals and your nation. Second, in all nations, you can make a personal impact through works of compassion, service, wisdom, and truth-sharing with others.
Third, only in free nations, can you make a difference by voting consistently and wisely for good leaders.
Here is my USA midterm elections plea to all who care about America’s future.
