Ephesians 6:10-20


Brad used a shovel to chop off the head of a snake trapped in one of our garage "critter traps" this week. The thing had no head and squirmed around for quite a while trying to bite him. No head...no real power to speak of...and still...in complete denial....it twisted and turned...trying to exert some form of control over the situation. Crazy. A perfect word picture for Bria and Mcabe. Satan bruised the heel of Christ (the cross). Christ was victorious and bruised his head (the resurrection)... and yet still...being the snake that he is...he squirms about trying to do damage. God's Word tells us that Satan is not stupid. He knows full well who is Lord and who has won. Still he attempts to destroy. Be alert, my sons.

EEEWWWWW!!!!! How wonderful that you can find a lesson in this. When the snake is at my home, rest assured, I will be calling for the shovel and the man that yields it!!! (Bad English!) Why did an animal hater move to the desert, I might ask?!?! Okay, big symbolism, stupid friend, but it's three a.m. and I will not sleep until the kids land.
Love you
