Real Heroes

It is Not the Critic who Counts –  Great quote from Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt.

Courage, The Heart of a Man – Second of the Knightly Virtues, courage plays out in different ways in every man’s life: whether he’s a born coward, like Jimmy Stewart in Vertigo or The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance; or a born leader, like Sir Ernest Shackleton, who lead his men to cross Antarctica in 1914, only to see the expedition end in disaster – but still managed to save every man’s life.

The Death of Nannie – My grandmother of 109 years of age died on Easter Sunday morning, 2011. We buried her on the Saturday before Mother’s Day, two weeks later. It was appropriate. She was the end of an era.

Saint Patrick and How the Irish Saved Civilization – Perhaps the greatest missionary since St. Paul gets little more than green beer from most of us. There’s not even a major motion picture about him. He deserves better. Saint Patrick and the Irish saved civilization. Here’s how.

George Mueller – George Mueller, greatest man of prayer of past two centuries, established the Scriptural Knowledge Institution (SKI) and Orphanage in Ashley Down, Bristol, England.

A Reluctant Warrior – God called Gideon to be a warrior, but it took a lot to convince him. He could easily have been born in the 21st century and been one of us.
