Terms "Left" and "Right": A little Bible Study

A great start for the day ahead, November 7th! Something to sweeten your coffee and something to share with your friends.

And to Peter, ...if you want to catch fish do it from the right side of the boat.

They did and filled the boat.

Spelling Lesson

The last four letters in American…........I Can

The last four letters in Republican.........I Can

The last four letters in Democrats.........Rats

End of lesson.

Test to follow in November, 2012

Remember, November is "Rodent Removal Month".
