So, have you heard the news? Apparently the war in Afghanistan will now be funded by the Energizer Bunny.

Huge deposits of minerals have been found in the country, including what could be the world's largest supply of lithium, which is used in batteries. We're talking enough to change the entire future of that war-torn region.

Pray now not just to preserve life there, but for wisdom in coming decisions.


During my Army Reserve annual training at Fort Ord, California, our battalion commander was upset that our evening chow was late. He called the mess hall, and the mess sergeant explained that because their vehicle had broken down, they were unable to deliver field rations to our bivouac site.

Our commander immediately yelled for his driver. "Private! Drive to the mess hall and get chow!"

The private took off. It was a 15-minute trip there and back. Over an hour later, he finally returned, empty-handed, much to our dismay.

"Private!" demanded the commander. "What about chow?"

"It was delicious, sir," the driver replied. "I got there right before the mess hall closed, so I was able to get seconds."
