During World War II, a US marine was separated from his unit on a Pacific island. The fighting had been intense, and in the smoke and the crossfire he had lost touch with his comrades.

Alone in the jungle, he could hear enemy soldiers coming in his direction. Scrambling for cover, he found his way up a high ridge to several small caves in the rock. Quickly he crawled inside one of the caves. Although safe for the moment, he realized that once the enemy soldiers looking for him swept up the ridge, they would quickly search all the caves and he would be killed.

As he waited, he prayed, "Lord, if it be your will, please protect me. Whatever your will though, I love you and trust you. Amen."

After praying, he lay quietly listening to the enemy begin to draw close. He thought, "Well, I guess the Lord isn't going to help me out of this one." Then he saw a spider begin to build a web over the front of his cave. As he watched, listening to the enemy searching for him all the while, the spider layered strand after strand of web across the opening of the cave.

"Hah, he thought. "What I need is a brick wall and what the Lord has sent me is a spider web. God does have a sense of humor."

As the enemy drew closer he watched from the darkness of his hideout and could see them searching one cave after another. As they came to his, he got ready to make his last stand. To his amazement, however, after glancing in the direction of his cave, they moved on. Suddenly, he realized that with the spider web over the entrance, his cave looked as if no one had entered for quite a while. "Lord, forgive me," prayed the young man. "I had forgotten that in you a spider's web is stronger than a brick wall."

We all face times of great trouble. When we do, it is so easy to forget the victories that God would work in our lives, sometimes in the most surprising ways. As the great leader, Nehemiah, reminded the people of Israel when they faced the task of rebuilding Jerusalem, "In God we will have success!"
[Nehemiah 2:20]

That was great weezie. Mohammed was also saved from his enemies by a spider making a web across a cave entrance. Glad to see this forum be a good place to come just to read and ponder.

hi catlover thanks so much for bringing this back up :-)I just found this and thought I'd share :
SEE IF YOU CAN FIND 16 OF THE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE IN THE FOLLOWING
ARTICLE.

I once made a remark about the hidden books of the Bible. It was a lulu,
kept people looking so hard for the facts and for others it was a revelation. Some
were in a jam, especially since the names of the books were not capitalized,
but the truth finally struck home to numbers of readers. To others it was a
real job. We want it to be a most fascinating few moments for you. Yes there
will be some real easy ones to spot. Others may require judges to help them.
I will quickly admit it usually takes a minister to find one of them, and
there will be loud lamentations when it is found. A little lady says she
brews a cup of tea, so she can concentrate better. See how well you can
compete. Relax now, for there really are sixteen names of books in the Bible
in this story.

(Good Luck!! One Preacher found 15 books in 20 minutes but it took him three
weeks to find the 16th one.)

A Gardener's Prayer

The sun is just rising over the horizon,
shafts of light brighten the darkness,
as the light of day once more graces this earth.
My heart feels deep gratitude for this earth
created by my use thru God's son, Jesus.
My thankful heart opens my senses,
and expands my awareness of all around me!
Look at the beautiful greenery!
The trees, shrubs, plants, even the weeds,
they're beautiful!
See the fruits & vegetables
produced by plants of this earth for my use.
The flavors, the textures, the colors!
The plants are nourished by this earth
just as I am.
They grow where they are planted,
and need water, sun and nourishment.
Just as I do as a human living on this earth.
But I have to work by the sweat of my brow
to provide a good environment for these plants to grow.
I am becoming like God.
I am a child of God,
having success thru my efforts
caring for my little patch of earth,
working by the sweat of my brow
all the days of my life tilling the earth.
As I work,
appreciation for my efforts,
and the blossoming earth around me
fills my heart with joy,
I pray as I work in my garden,
and then leaning on my hoe,
I see shafts of light illuminate the greenery,
as once more I feel the sun's warmth,
blessing my garden.
