Matthew 11:28

Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

A topic often applicable to our lives is how do we cope with painful situations. Do we 'lose it' with fear, anxiety and depression, or are we able to draw closer to the Lord during troubled times and allow His strength to uphold you?

God Bless You!

Q. What did Samson put on the top of the hill that faces Hebron?

Answer below.



It is impossible for that man to despair who remembers that his Helper is omnipotent.

-Jeremy Taylor


After many years of trying, the Russian family was finally able to bring grandpa to America to live with them. The old gentleman could only speak Russian.

Each day when the family members were at work grandpa would spend his time in the park, walking, watching the children play and feed the ducks a few crumbs he brought along. So that he would be able to get a little something to eat they taught him to say, "apple pie, coffee."

Each day he would go to the nearby deli, climb on a stool at the counter and say to the counterman, "Apple pie, coffee."

This worked well for him until one day he decided that he just couldn't take another piece of apple pie. So the family taught him to say, "Ham sandwich, coke."

He went to the park the next day looking forward to being able to order a ham sandwich in stead of apple pie. Smiling to himself he climbed onto the stool at the counter and waited his turn.

When the counterman asked for his order he proudly said, "Ham sandwich, coke."

To which the counterman asked, "White or rye?"

The old man replied, "Um, apple pie, coffee."



Q. What did Samson put on the top of the hill that faces Hebron?

A. The doors of the gate of the city Gaza, and the two gateposts.

Now Samson went to Gaza... then he arose at midnight, took hold of the doors of the gate of the city and the two gateposts, pulled them up, bar and all, put them on his shoulders, and carried them to the top of the hill that faces Hebron.
