A day at Flossenbürg Con­cen­tra­tion Camp

As pre­vi­ously men­tioned, I was blessed to spend a month in Ger­many with my son, his wife and my new grand baby. I stayed in the Ger­man state of Bavaria, and tech­ni­cally we were just an hour out­side of the Czech Repub­lic. I stayed in a small town called Wei­den (in der Oberp­falz). I got to visit Amberg, Nurem­berg, and Floß….

There was a time not so long ago in my life when I erro­neously believed that if my fam­ily could make it through a very har­row­ing deploy­ment we would all be just fine.

It really is not so far off of the ground that an error would cause me to plum­met to dis­as­ter, but it feels that way….

A COUPLE OF LESSONS I LEARNED ALONG THE WAY

few things Learned through study, lec­ture and dis­cus­sion dur­ing the study of the last sev­eral chap­ters of Genesis: A cou­ple of things I learned from Jacob: 1. Even if your past includes decep­tion, lies, and run­ning… if you belong to God you will come to the end of your­self and you will end your days lean­ing on…
