There’s not too much humor in this war so you’ve got to take it when you can get it. This AP photo is from FoxNews.com‘s Day 10 Photo essay.

I appreciate good photography. I’m drawn to wartime photos these days. Go check out the work of photographer Grant M. Haller who has been “embedded” with the crew of the USS Abraham Lincoln, an aircraft carrier currently deployed in the Persian Gulf.
Read this interesting article at rationalchristianity.net to learn several easy ways to keep nonbelievers from visiting your Christian web site. The author took an informal survey of nonbelievers asking them to rate the annoyance level of some of the following on Christian run web sites.
Christian-themed backgrounds (crosses, fish, etc.)
Commercialism – prominent ads for online store, “buy my book,” “make a donation”
“Vote for this site” buttons
Using “webservant” in place of webmaster
Infighting – “Why Catholics/Protestants/etc. are wrong”
Prominent Bible verses (e.g. a theme verse at the top of the home page)
Written prayer (“Lord, please use this site…” or “I pray that this site will help you…”)
A few comments at the end of the article are also enlightening.
UPDATE: The article points out that these are things you should AVOID if you intend to appeal to a broader audience.
I missed Oliver North’s latest article a few days ago but I’ve finally come to my senses and brought myself up to speed. He shares the following, but you must read the whole thing yourself.
Yes, war is dangerous and unpredictable. But don’t believe the cynics and critics who tell you that our young men and women are unprepared or ill-equipped. They are more than ready and willing to carry out the orders of their commander in chief who told them that “the peace of a troubled world and the hopes of an oppressed people now depend on you.”
Mr. President, our troops want you to deliver to the Iraqi people the same message you gave to our soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines when you campaigned for the job of commander in chief — “Help is on the way!”
Here is an interesting slide show of images from the war.

Sometimes I just don’t think that I have enough faith!
Yes, you heard me right. Sometimes I just don’t think that I have enough faith….especially when I read Hebrews Chapter 11. Do you ever feel like that? Here we are the spiritual leaders. We are supposed to always have enough faith. But when is enough, enough? Well, whenever I read Hebrews chapter 11, I always come away encouraged that I can have more faith, but I must be willing to be a follower of faith. If anything, this chapter always challenges me to the fact that faith is always on the move. It is not evident in the lives of those who stand still. And faith always seems to amaze!
