"I wonder whose side God is on."

Today marked the 71st anniversary of D-Day (June 6, 1944) - the Allied invasion of Nazi-occupied Europe.  So today, my wife and I watched what I consider to be the best and most historically accurate World War II movie ever made: The Longest Day. There is a line in the movie spoken by Lt. Col. Benjamin Vandervoort (portrayed by John Wayne): "I wonder whose side God is on."The line is repeated by Maj. Gen. Gunther Blumentritt (portrayed by Curt Jurgens).  My immediate response to the German…See More

Getting ready for invasion

What are you going to do tomorrow?Seventy-one years ago - even at this very hour - planes had already left British airspace en route to Normandy, France.  These planes bore not only paratroopers but also gliders in tow whose sole purpose was to crash land behind enemy lines and deploy a small force to secure enemy strongholds.  Now there are many analogies I could make with the gliders, but I mainly want to point this out.They talked about this for months.  They thought about it.  They planned…See More

"Douglas,  I'm not aware of a resource like that.  While it would be helpful, I fear if it was in print it would be quickly outdated.  Most of the internet scams pop up then disappear quickly when they are exposed on the internet.…"

MIA -- Missing In Action or Much InActivity?

One of my summer resolutions (no, not New Years' resolutions) is to blog every day.  My activity on 48Days.net has been mostly dormant for the past several months.  I wonder if this is the case with many members here.  We coming here seeking the work we love.  We find the work we love and get so busy with it that we don't have time for the community that helped launch that work in the first place.See More

It happened a year ago this very week.  And it happened today as well.  I was sad and depressed because a paid vacation was about to begin.  How many people are sad, depressed, and fighting back tears because of a paid vacation?

"The Curtain Falls"

From the last verse of a song sung by Kevin Spacey (portraying singer, Bobby Darin) called "The Curtain Falls":

People say I was made for this

Nothing else would I trade for this

And just think, I get paid for this

I think of these lyrics as I wrap up the school year.  I thank God for what I get to do.  He gets all the glory.…
