3And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces,
though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.
The God of Israel will seek to destroy all the
nations that come against Jerusalem
6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
“May those who love you be secure.
7 May there be peace within your walls
and security within your citadels.”
8 For the sake of my family and friends,
I will say, “Peace be within you.”
Isaiah chapter 17
“See, Damascus will no longer be a city but will become a heap of ruins. "
There's no shortage of alligators these days. I really with they'd open-up the season a little more. I'm tired of "donating" $5 every year to enter the lottery hunt.
Going the extra centimeter
Good grief. Why would alligators being in a lake make you unable to or not want to ski there? There are THOUSANDS and THOUSANDS of gators in the Ross Barnett Reservoir and Pearl River in the Jackson area, and it is the biggest recreational lake in the state. Especially up on the river, where most people ski, boat, fish, and camp if you shine a light along the bank at night you will see hundreds of little glowing eyes looking back at you. Its pretty neat. Yet, there has never been one instance of a gator attacking a human. Not one. They are just part of the scenery.
I remember as a child of about 6 or 7 years going fishing on Live Oak Plantation just outside of Abbeville. It was my uncle, dad, older brother and myself in two bateaus about 12 ft. and the gators would swim right up alongside the boat. It really freaked me out. When I was older my uncle and I would go crabbing in the marshes by the locks leading out to the Gulf. I lost count of the number of alligator holes I would fall in. I had to chuckle when watching Swamp People the other night when one of them said that the gators stay away from the saltwater. I wanted to tell him, go take a ride in Rockeffeler Refuge and take the canals to the gulf. You'll find out otherwise.
