The Black Snake

It was the first camping experience for Jed.

As soon as he had pitched his tent, he went for a hike in the woods. In about fifteen minutes he rushed back into camp, bleeding and dishevelled.

“What happened?” asked a fellow camper.

“I was chased by a black snake!” cried the frightened Jed.

The camper laughed and retorted, “A black snake isn’t deadly.”

“Listen,” groaned Jed, “If he can make you jump off a fifty-foot cliff, he is!”

*Thanks to Pastor Tim for this joke!*

Dear friends and family,

Let us always try to learn more and more on how to correctly react to fear. Courage is not the absence of fear. It is doing the wise thing to do in the presence of fear. God has not given us fear, but a spirit of power, love, and courage!

Remember, you are greatly blessed, highly favored, and deeply loved! 🙂
