Proud and pleased as she could be, the new, young bride, and a recent graduate of UNC, Mrs. Stanford Strothers, strode briskly up to the teller's cage at the bank to cash her husband's pay check for the first time. When the teller told her the check would have to be endorsed, the bride grabbed the pen and unhesitatingly wrote on the back, "I heartily recommend my husband, Stanford Strothers."

A So He Can Hear Every Last Little Sound
There are times when the trials of this earthly life can cause our strength to be worn out & depleted. So we come to the Father in our time of weakness -crying out for the things that we needed. And we realize the full value of the promises of God are in the Author who caused them to be. For it's His presence we treasure in our hour of darkness for the answers we can't even see. It's adversity & suffering which humble to bring us to a new level of dependence on Him. For our childlike desperation creates an intimate walk and a closeness as each day begins. And when all of our resources are used up & gone so we come to the King truly dry, We realize He allows some situations to happen to draw our hearts to His endless supply. He takes the frailties of this life to somehow make us notice how fading and fleeting it can be. Then the eternal things we couldn't focus on before become the things that we most clearly see. And when our heartache wakes us up at the midnight hour yet we worship Him with no one around. Our Father lifts His hand to silence all the angels ....so He can hear every last little sound.
Then the multitude rose up together against them; and the magistrates tore off their clothes and commanded them to be beaten with rods. And when they had laid many stripes on them, they threw them into prison, commanding the jailer to keep them securely. Having received such a charge, he put them into the inner prison and fastened their feet in the stocks. But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that all the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone's chains were loosed. Acts 16:22-26 NKJV Read Chapter 16 for the incredible rest of the story.
Arab citizens of Israel and their "Palestinian" cousins expressed pleasure at the blow America's voters delivered to President George W. Bush November 8, when Democrats became the majority party in the House of Representatives.
Arab Knesset member Ahmed Tibi, a senior advisor to the late terror chieftain, Yasser Arafat, and an avowed enemy of the Jewish state in which he enjoys all the privileges of citizen and lawmaker, made no bones about his feelings.
"Bush's policies are anti-Arab, anti-Islamic and anti-Palestinian and encourage terror around the world and the way the neo-conservatives related to the Arab world was outrageous and humiliating, so I am happy to see [the Republicans] lose the election," Tibi told The Jerusalem Post.
On November 2, World Net Daily (WND) quoted a senior member of PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas' Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades as saying that "of course Americans should vote Democrat."
Jihad Jaara, one of the terrorists who laid siege to Bethlehem's Church of the Nativity said American Muslims would support the Democrats "because there is an atmosphere in America that encourages those who want to withdraw from Iraq. It is time that the American people support those who want to take them out of this Iraqi mud."
WND's Jerusalem bureau chief, Aaron Klein, said that the Palestinian killers he interviewed "rejected statements from some prominent Democrats in the U.S. that a withdrawal from Iraq would end the insurgency, explaining an evacuation would prove resistance works and would compel jihadists to continue fighting until America is destroyed."
They told Klein a Democrat electoral win would prove to them that Americans are "tired" of fighting the war on terror.
Newly elected Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senator Hillary Clinton were among the many liberals who hailed Rumsfeld¹s departure as opening the way for a "change of course in Iraq."
For Muslims, such a change in the prosecution of the post-war situation in Iraq promises progress towards self-inflicted defeat for the United States.
