The Kindled Light

It’s amazing how powerful even a little light is when it’s dark. A small, flickering flame can brighten a dark room, and, amazingly the darker the room, the more powerful even the smallest amount of light! I remember visiting Ruby Falls as a little boy and going into the underground caverns with the tour, holding my mon’s hand tightly. It got even tighter when the tour guide turned out the lights in…

Soldiers of the Light

It was a favorite Sunday School song in my 1st-grade class on Sundays! “This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine. This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.

It turned out to be nothing more than a bullfrog trying to get the attention of the object of his affection! But it got me thinking: Why do we ask such…

Memory Eternal!

The movie is “Enemy Mine” and in this science…
