    Did you know that God actually commands us to be joyful? Joy is not an option for a Christian, but must be a part of your daily life if you are to walk with God and grow spiritually. We are not only to rejoice when things are going well, but we are to rejoice at all times, even when things are going badly for us. 16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18  )4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. (Philippians...

    SEQUOIA NATIONAL PARK, Calif. - A Porterville minister accused of sexual abusing two teenage parishioners fell 400 feet to his death at Moro Rock, a National Park Service official said Monday. The Rev. Santos Teixeira's fall Sunday was under "uncertain circumstances," requiring the Park Service to notify the FBI of its investigation, said Alexandra Picavet, a Sequoia National Park spokeswoman. Picavet said park investigators have yet to determine the manner of death and cautioned it was standard procedure to notify the FBI about the case, which occurred on federal land. Teixeira, 56, fell to his death late Monday afternoon from...

    Democrats in the U.S. Senate blocked a confirmation vote May 26 on John Bolton’s nomination as United Nations ambassador. “The honeymoon is over,” Sen. George Allen, R.-Va., said as he left the Senate floor after the vote, according to The Washington Post. “It appears that our new start has already come to an end,” Sen. Jim DeMint, R.-S.C., said in a written statement. “I know that many Democrats will say they’re not blocking him, but today’s vote looks like a filibuster, walks like a filibuster and quacks like a filibuster.”

    Detectives found no markings on the bodies and no signs of forced entry into the hotel room. The door was locked from the inside. "There was no evidence of any trauma. They weren't shot, cut or stabbed," Harrison said. There were no signs of apparent foul play or suicide. "If they committed suicide, there was no indication of how they did it," Harrison said. "There was no evidence there of anything they could have used to do it. This is a case for the Medical Examiner."

    Where Faith Flourishes While one should walk by faith in all of life, they are obvious times when it is activated more than others. Each person has his inner issues and outer issues in life. His inner issues involve such things as doubts, secret sins, feelings of rejection, worry, etc. Whereas, his outer issues tend to be much more visible and definitive, i.e., finances, health, family issues. I have long observed in my experience that the more tangible a circumstance is, the more taxing it is on my faith. It is much easier for me to dismiss the intangible issues...

    STARVATION DAY 4 Jeb Bush 'fails' Terri No action yet to save handicapped woman, despite 10 e-mails per second urging his help Posted: October 18, 2003 1:41 p.m. Eastern By Sarah Foster © 2003 With Terri Schindler-Schiavo's judge-ordered starvation well into its fourth day, it is clear to her family and supporters that Florida Gov.
