Today in History

Thought For Today
Build a boat for yourself out of good timber; make rooms in it and cover it with tar inside and out.
Genesis 6:14 (c) GNB
Rain was never mentioned prior to Noah building the ark because a mist would rise up and cover the ground at night. Faith overcomes adversity.
