I received this through an E-Mail from a friend of mine. I'm assuming it is true and I like it. I never knew about this and I wish I had learned it in school when I was growing up. I think it's something that should be known to the world. Read it, cut it out, make copies, and pass the information along. It's a little different from my regular editorials but I think that it's important information; and I think it should be passed along.

One time when my dad was a kid, he was out riding his father's new French racing bicycle. Little did he know, his neighbor's horse was on the loose.

Hebrews 11:1 (RSV)

12Therefore from one man, and him as good as dead, were born descendants as many as the stars of heaven and as the innumerable grains of sand by the seashore.
Hebrews 11:12 (RSV)
