Men, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen Him go into heaven.
It may seem obvious to you but the reason we have rules for operating motor vehicles is so everyone is on the same page while driving. Each state even has a Department of Motor Vehicles to oversee issuing motor vehicle titles, maintaining vehicle registration information and enforcing other statutes.

“If you’re reading this letter, my disease has run its course. Enclosed is some money for my burial. I would like to be cremated. I spent my whole life in a box. I don’t want to be buried in one.” -Georgia May Byrd (Queen Latifah)That line is from one of my favorite movies and it […]
Amidst all the struggles ‘life’ seems to present, there is a longing in every person to ‘solve’ present problems/situations.
