National Day Of Prayer
Throughout our history, Americans have turned to prayer for strength, inspiration, and solidarity. Prayer has played an important role in the American story and in shaping our Nation’s leaders. President Abraham Lincoln once said, “I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go. My own wisdom and that of all about me seemed insufficient for the day. It is thus fitting that, from the earliest years of our country’s history, Congress and Presidents have set aside days to recognize the role prayer has played in so many definitive moments in our history. On this National Day of Prayer, let us follow the example of President Lincoln and Dr. King. Let us be

It’s the three-day weekend that officially kicks off summer vacations… a time for hanging out at the beach, barbecuing, even catching a few laps at the Indy 500. But Memorial Day is also the most solemn American holiday--a day to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice, while defending their nation. In the Civil War, America’s bloodiest chapter, over 600,000 soldiers were killed in action. Almost every community in every state suffered the loss of young men. As the war came to an end, mourners in both northern and southern states began placing flags and flowers on the graves of fallen soldiers. The town of Waterloo, New York is officially credited with starting the holiday. On May 5, 1866, its citizens closed their shops and businesses so that everyone

Turn Back Time for Mother’s Day What if you could turn back time? What if there were ways, without invasive surgery, to peel years off your face? Well, there are! There are several services that do not entail high costs, pain or downtime. One option is the Stem Cell Facial, an excellent alternative because the stem cells can penetrate the skin by 90%, have a 71% rejuvenation rate and con-
tinue to work for 144 hours. The bovine stem cells used do not have any memory of their own; thus, once applied to your skin, they become your cells - with the ability to rejuvenate and correct damaged cells. Face Sculpting is another choice, which utilizes a special microcurrent machine that works like “exercising” the muscles of the face. As the facial muscles strengthen, they become more taut and firm, producing a more youthful appearance. The number of treatments depends on different
factors: age, sun exposure, diet, water intake, genetics, etc. The newest trend is red light emitting diode (LED) therapy. The Red LEDs stimulate the body’s production of collagen, which is what keeps us looking young! Ladies, Mother’s Day is approaching, so remind your loved ones to get you a Le Camelot Wellness Spa gift certificate and start “turning back time!” Sandi Brooks Soule, Le Camelot Wellness, Licensed Esthetician, go online www.LeCamelot.com or call 813-774-4475.

My Body Is Turning Into A Giant Marshmallow!
Samantha Taylor Pure Health & Fitness Studios April is a good time to reflect on life. I went out to dinner with my dad, who is one of the most amazing people I know. Every time I talk to him, he talks about how he is going to start working out, get serious about his exercise plan, and “really do it this time” (probably mentions it since he knows I’m a personal trainer). He has been saying he is going to get fit for many years and it really hit me when I realized on July 6th he turns 67. My dad, 67. Isn’t that bizarre when your parents start to get older? That is only three years away from 70! That is what hit me, he’s getting older and he is not doing anything about his fitness. His blood work is better than it has ever been, which I am very happy about that, yet I am seeing him get “softer” and more out of shape even though thankfully he only has about 20 lbs. to lose. I always saw my dad as Superman, and I still do. He was in the Vietnam War, always did physical labor tasks outside, and owned his own businesses. And I always saw him with muscles, in good shape, and active, which probably helped me with my choice to be a trainer. But for a moment, I looked at my dad without those Superman goggles on and realized that he is getting older, more out of shape and if he doesn’t do something instead of talk about it, he is going to pay for it big time! I put on my personal trainer hat and expressed my concern for him. I told him how if he didn’t get serious about this, he was only going to get mushier and become like a big marshmallow! (I knew could raz him a little
bit because my dad has always been a big jokester). He said, “No, not a marshmallow!” I said, “Yes, and if you don’t want me to start calling you Mr. Marshmallow Man, then you had better do something! And if your body turns into mush because you have no more muscles from not exercising, you are going to start losing your independence as you get older.” He exclaimed, “No, not that!” I said, “Yes, do you want to be in a nursing home in 10 years? People changing your diapers?” He was aghast, “NO! I never want to lose my independence!” I said, “Well then, you better get serious because the life that you are living right now with not being fit, your body is not going to be able to support itself as it gets older and you will not have your independence, you will have to have other people taking care of you. Is that what you want?” I knew it was NOT wanted because he is a very independent man, and his mother is 92 and still lives on her own. He got a more serious look on his face, “No, that is not what I want. Okay, I am serious. Wait ‘till you see me next time!” I said, “Dad, you said that last time, you need a plan, not just talk.” He said, “No, I am really going to do something this time.” So we put a plan together for him. I challenged him to workout at least 2 times a week for a month and then when he did, he got to buy himself a reward. He decided what his reward was, we shook hands on it and went off on our separate ways. I love him so much and am grateful for him and I don’t want to start seeing his body fall apart because he didn’t take care of it. I encourage you to inspire your family to do the same, and if you are able to share this article with your own father, do so. “I love you, Dad, and want you to live a long, healthy life!” www.purehealthstudios.com/OvercomeTemptation

Captain Ric’s Fish Tales Reel Simple Fishing Adventures
Wounded Warrior Alex Utz with a 41” snook he caught while fishing with Capt. Ric Liles in the TAMCO Wounded Warrior Fishing Tournament April 11th.
With the best part of our Tampa Bay tarpon fishing right around the corner, I wanted to re-post a report I did several years ago. Tarpon are a great sport fish, but the trip in the story below was much more. The story speaks for itself. I hope you enjoy it for a second time. I had the opportunity this past week to meet and take a true American hero fishing. My longtime friend from Killeen, Texas, Chuck Guthrie, called me several weeks ago and told me he was going to be in town and wanted to book a trip. After talking for several minutes, I found out that Chuck intended to bring a friend of his that is an injured veteran from the war in Iraq. That’s where the hero part starts to play in. I told Chuck that I would do this trip on the house and was honored to be the one that he had chosen for the job. All they wanted to catch was a tarpon and did not care how long it took to do it. I immediately called my tarpon fishing mentor, Capt. Jason Ramsey, and asked him if he wanted to be part of something good. Jason agreed to join me, and the boys from Texas started making plans. Chuck’s friend and American hero, Brent Homan,
took a blast in Iraq from an IED that left him without a right eye, an arm with nothing but a metal rod from the wrist to the elbow and 2 BB sized pieces of shrapnel in his brain for life. After 16 surgeries and 45 days in the hospital, Brent is on the mend. He can’t and never could hit a baseball 400 feet, he can’t run through tackles, he can’t sing and dance, but what he did do is defend our freedoms, and to me that’s a true hero. I don’t think that a soldier has to get injured to be a hero, they’re all heroes to me, it’s just that an injured soldier makes an extra sacrifice. For Brent, his right eye was one of those sacrifices. This is where the story gets a little interesting. In the first ten minutes of fishing, Brent got hooked up with a tarpon, pulled him away from the pilings, and got him to the boat for a release when everyone on the boat seemed to notice at the same time that his fish has no right eye. Call it coincidence if you want, but I think it goes deeper than that. We went on to jump five more tarpon and were able to land three of the six we had on that day. Brent’s one-eyed fish was one of the smallest ones that we hooked, but I think it will be his most memorable one regardless of the size. It was a great day shared with my friends Jason and Chuck and also with my new friend and hero, Brent. Jason and I both felt blessed that we were able to give back to someone that has given as much to us as Brent has. If you’re a veteran, thank you. Until next time, good luck and be safe on the water. Remember: don’t let your kid be the one that got away, take them fishing. For charter information, you can call (813) 601-2900, email me at CaptainRic@msn. com, or visit www.ReelSimpleFishing.com.

Local Author Celebrates the Nature Coast Christian fiction author Rebecca Waters brings her main characters to Florida’s Nature Coast. They enjoy a Cuban breakfast in Lutz and lunch in Land O’ Lakes. Together, Molly and Travis walk the sun-kissed beach of Fred Howard Park in Tarpon Springs, go deep sea fishing, and wander through the sponge dock shops of the unique Greek community. “I grew up in Lutz, graduated from Chamberlain High School and USF. My husband and I spent 35 years in Ohio. When I wrote the book, I wanted my character, Molly, to leave Cincinnati and experience the joy of the Tampa Bay area. My husband and I soon followed, moving back to Lutz a year ago,” Waters said. The book, Breathing on Her Own, is the story of a middle-aged woman coming face-toface with her crumbling faith when she learns her adult daughter is injured a horrific car accident while driving under the influence. “My characters are flawed–like me and everyone else I know. I didn’t want to write about sweet little I-have-it-all-together wom-
en. They don’t exist.” The story begins and ends in Cincinnati. So what role does Florida’s Nature Coast play? “An important one,” Waters explains. “It is on the deep sea fishing boat out of Tarpon Springs that Molly comes to understand her crippled relationship with God as she observes the dolphins escorting the boat out to the Gulf. She likens her life to that of the dolphins, living in the dark ocean and coming up for a bit of Bible on Sundays.” Breathing on Her Own is published by Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas, and it is available on Amazon.com at http://www. amazon.com/dp/1941103154 For more information about Rebecca Waters, visit her author page at Amazon.com or go to www.waterswords.com.

Questions About Thermography? By Maria E. Belluccio, D.O.M., A. P., R.N.
I always find it interesting when I ask a woman if she would be interested in learning about a safe and early detection breast screening tool. When I educate them on the benefits of infrared thermal imaging, I frequently get the response that they have “never heard of it” or “why isn’t my doctor ordering it?” Medical thermography has been used worldwide for breast and whole body screening for over 30 years. The FDA registered thermography as an adjunctive breast screening tool in 1982. Still, there remains some misunderstanding about its relevance in breast screening. Mammography has been considered the gold standard for years, yet recent information continues to reveal questions regarding its efficacy and safety. So what do we do to insure early detection of breast disease and protect ourselves from the effects of ionizing radiation and compression? To answer that question, let’s look at how thermography works. Thermography actually takes a digital picture through a temperature sensing camera that can show vascular patterns and temperature gradients (trends) in the breast tissue. Vascular patterns are generally symmetrical in our body, so any abnormal pattern can be detected through an increased heat pattern (hyperthermia). Also, there are a number of vascular patterns that alert the thermologist (reader) of the potential for abnormal vascular growth called angiogenesis. A thermogram can pick up on changes in the breast anywhere from 5-8 years before a mammogram sees it as a measurable mass. By that time there may be lymph node involvement and the woman would require aggressive therapy such as surgery, chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy. We haven’t even mentioned the emotional, physical, and financial stress that women suffer through this process. Why wait to find a palpable mass? I use thermography in my practice to educate women about breast health and ways to prevent breast cancer. We know that breast
cancer is primarily caused by estrogen dominance and environmental toxins. Family history only accounts for 5-10%. There are so many steps we can take to prevent and treat early signs of changes in our breast. I recommend that women in their 20’s start annual thermography screening to monitor any changes we can see over time that would indicate the need for intervention. Thermography is a proactive approach to preventing breast disease. It can be an indication of hormone imbalances, lymphatic congestion, and inflammation. Women with fibrocystic breasts have a better chance of accurate screening with annual thermograms. Mammography oftentimes cannot detect lesions when a woman has dense or cystic breasts. She might be recalled several times for repeat x-rays due to its obscurity. Also, women with breast implants are reluctant to have annual screening due to their fear of rupturing the implants. Hence, they receive no screening. Unfortunately, there is not a 100% accurate method for detection. Thermography has a 92-95% sensitivity rate and when combined with breast ultrasound, the sensitivity increases to 97%. In addition to breast screening, thermography can visualize pain and inflammation elsewhere in the body. It can see skin lesions, cardiovascular/carotid artery diseases, thyroid abnormalities, dental issues, digestive disorders and many other disorders reflective in changes in skin temperature asymmetries and vascular patterns. Many clients prefer to have a full body scan as a preventative screening tool. If you have questions, feel free to call our clinic. Our website homepage lists the many Pinellas, Pasco and Hernando County clinics where I offer thermography services, along with my office in Tampa. For more information regarding thermography, please call Lotus Path Wellness Center at 813-964-0847 or browse our website at www.lotuspathwellness.com.

thankful for the liberty that allows people of all faiths to worship or not worship according to the dictates of their conscience, and let us be thankful for the many other freedoms and blessings that we often take for granted. Let us pray for the men and women of our Armed Forces and the many selfless sacrifices they and their families make on behalf of our nation. Let us pray for the police officers, firefighters, and other first
responders who put themselves in harm’s way every day to protect their fellow citizens. And let us ask God for the sustenance and guidance for all of us to meet the great challenges we face as a nation. Let us remember in our thoughts and prayers those who have been affected by natural disasters at home and abroad in recent months, as well as those working tirelessly to render assistance. And, at a time when many around the world face uncertainty and unrest, but also hold resurgent hope for freedom and justice, let our prayers be with men and women everywhere who seek peace, human dignity, and the same rights we treasure here in America. http://www.whitehouse. gov/the-press-office/2011/04/29/presidential-proclamation-national-day-prayer.
National Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month During the entire month of May, motorcyclists across the United States will be promoting National Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month. Below are some simple, easy awareness tips that we would like to share. Don’t Just Glance – Take a Second Look! Motorcycle Awareness: Over two-thirds of car/motorcycle-related crashes are caused by car drivers; not by motorcyclists. The driver usually does not see the oncoming motorcyclist in time to avoid a crash. With people texting and checking their cell phones for messages, it’s important to stress that both hands need to be on the wheel of your vehicle. Tips for Drivers: Why Didn’t I See That Motorcycle? How Can I Become More Aware of Motorcyclists? Motorcycles normally have smaller profiles that make them harder to see. You may also find it more difficult to estimate the motorcycle’s speed. Look for the motorcyclist at intersections, when a motorcyclist may be making a left turn, and on the highway when
a motorcyclist may be changing lanes. The motorcyclist’s riding pattern is different from your driving pattern. Different actions may be needed for the same driving or highway situation. Always anticipate a motorcyclist’s maneuver. Traffic, weather, and road conditions— especially obstructions—require a motorcyclist to react differently than a driver. Please keep in mind never to follow a motorcycle too closely. Respect the motorcyclist and the space they are using while on the highway. Hundreds of motorcyclists in our state of Florida alone die each year as a result of an unnecessary motorcycle accident. The state of Florida is the number one state in the nation with the highest amount of motorcycle deaths out of any other state. California is next, followed by Texas. All of us at Leather & Lace MC want to see these numbers dwindle to non-existence. Forming Sun Coast Chapter West FL, LLMC www.leatherandlacemc.com
Hope Children’s Home Rescuing the Next Generation Florida. But more importantly, it signifies their triumph over adversity. Whether it was growing up in a distressed family or living in a third-world country or being moved from their childhood home to serve at Hope, they each had adversity to overcome, and they succeeded. They now hold one of the keys to their future in a diploma. It is the key that opens the door to college and bright futures for each. They have gained knowledge and wisdom much like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. But the most important similarity our three graduates have with the three Hebrew boys is they know the Savior. Education is important. It will help put food on the table and pay the bills. But knowing the Savior is the master key that will enable them to unlock peaceful, rewarding, productive lives and make a difference in the lives of those around them.
One of the most intriguing Bible stories is that of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. They were three Hebrew boys taken into captivity by the Babylonians. These boys were just like other Hebrew children except “God gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom.” (Daniel 1:17) They were educated, and they stood out to King Nebuchadnezzar to be placed in positions of leadership in his country, positions to make a difference in others’ lives. Just like those three boys were similar to other Hebrew children, our graduates are no different than graduates in any school in our country, public or private. As they walk across the stage on Friday, June 6th, they will receive something that will set them apart from many of their peers and even family members—they will receive their high school diploma. It signifies their accomplishment of meetI am proud of each of our graduates. ing the stringent graduation requirements They are all headed to college next year, of Hope Christian School and the state of another advantage they have over many of their peers. It will not be easy. But they can do “all things through Christ.” (Philippians 4:13) If you would like to help these graduates with college expenses, please make a donation to our Hope Scholarship Fund. Your generous donation will be greatly appreciated by all our graduates as they attend school. If you are unable to contribute financially, I know each would covet your prayers as they open the next door in their lives.

could decorate the graves of the men killed during the war. Then an old war general had an idea. John A. Logan, leader of the Union Veteran Association, spearheaded an effort to unite all the decoration services into one national holiday, designating May 30th as Decoration Day. On the first national Decoration Day in 1868, 5,000 war widows, orphans, and other mourners gathered at Arlington National Cemetery. They placed flowers and ribbons on the 20,000 graves of both Union and Confederate soldiers. Two future Presidents and fellow Union veterans, Ulysses S. Grant and James A. Garfield, attended the ceremony.
Throughout the 19th century, Decoration Day grew. Ceremonies were held in major Civil War battlefields like Gettysburg, Pennsylvania and Antietam field in Maryland. By the end of the century, the holiday was renamed Memorial Day. But war wounds ran deep; most southern states refused to commemorate a holiday
they regarded as honoring Union soldiers. So each state commemorated their war dead with different Confederate Decoration Days. Several southern states continue the tradition to this day. WWI ushered in the age of modern warfare. America lost over 130,000 soldiers in the global conflict. This shared experience finally bonded America’s north and south. When the war ended, May 30th became a day to honor all American soldiers who died in battle as far back as the Revolutionary War. America interred its first Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery on Armistice Day in 1921. Every Memorial Day, this soldier and other unknown soldiers are honored with a wreath-laying ceremony conducted by the President or Vice President. They are reminders of all those who’ve never made it home. Memorial Day became a federal holiday in 1971, when Congress shifted it from May 30th to the fourth Monday in May, giving federal workers a three-day weekend. All across America, veterans and civilians still gather in parades and vigils to remember the generations who gave their lives for their nation’s freedom. http:/ / www.h istor y.com/ topics/ memorial-day-history/media#history-ofmemorial-day.

Sports Illustrated Recognizes Heritage Isles
Rick Bradshaw PGA Professional/GM & Food Enthusiast I am very proud to have been mentioned in the Masters Preview Golf Edition of Sports Illustrated Magazine’s article on my partner Jim Dent, a 12-time winner on the PGA Champions Tour. The article was titled Everyone Loves Dent and was written by the illustrious sports writer Michael Bamberger. Mr. Bamberger is one of the country’s most elegant writers on golf. His versatility as a writer and his lucid, open style are hallmarks of his work. Bamberger joined Sports Illustrated as a senior writer in 1995 after 13 years as a newspaper reporter. The week preceding this year’s Masters, Mr. Bamberger visited The Jim Dent/Rick Bradshaw School of Golf at Heritage Isles Golf and Country Club in New Tampa. Michael immediately was drawn to our Golf School’s library of instruction books which is available for students and instructors to refer to during their lesson. Michael’s article described his visit as “Dent and I drove from his home to a public course outside Tampa called Heritage Isles, where he owns a golf school with a teaching pro named Rick Bradshaw. His business partner likes a round, stress-free swing, and Jim Dent is his Exhibit A. Bradshaw has a collection of worn-out, marked-up and taped instruction books—by Hogan, Percy Boomer, Jimmy Ballard, Homer Kelley, and others—and during our visit, Dent studied closely various pictures. He is still a student of the game and loves referring to Ben Hogan’s perfect golf swing.”
These books, plus hundreds more in my weather-beaten library, are what substantiate the history of golf instruction and add to my knowledge of what works and why from the beginning of golf in the late 1800’s to present modern day instruction. It is firmly my belief to be extremely well read and knowledgeable of virtually all past and present golf instruction if you are to attempt to instruct individuals to swing a golf club. Michael Bamberger allowed me to video his golf swing, and then we analyzed it together. He is a very good golfer and I soon learned he had immense knowledge of golf instruction. We looked at a very old video of Ben Hogan practicing and hitting drives into the ocean from the backyard of a house next to Seminole Golf Club in Juno Beach, Florida. Seminole, still extremely exclusive, is now ranked #22 in the world, and back then when they shot the Hogan video, it was ranked in the world’s top 10 golf courses. Michael was the only person I have ever shown the exclusive Hogan video to that already knew it existed. He spent about an hour with Jim Dent and me talking about golf instruction and hitting golf balls. In addition, he seemed very impressed with my 280 yard one hand drives to exemplify how effortless the golf swing should be. I thank Michael Bamberger for visiting and writing such a wonderful article about the man and golfer Jim Dent in the Masters Preview of Sports Illustrated Magazine as well as mentioning myself and our golf school.

Great American Cleanup
Diane Vidovic, Kalina Vidovic, Jeff Mullins, and Hailey Mullins at Rowlett Park
Over 3,300 Tampa Bay residents volunteered for the 2014 Great American Cleanup to take a stand against littering in their community. Over 85 projects coordinated by Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful took place on Saturday, April 12th in neighborhoods throughout Hillsborough County. Their efforts removed over 62,000 pounds of litter from 650 acres of park and 150 miles of shorelines, roadways, and neighborhoods including areas of East Tampa, Ybor, Sulphur Springs, Town N’ Country, Lutz, Ruskin, Gibsonton, and more. By removing the eyesore that is litter, these dedicated volunteers helped increase property values, improved the health of our environment, saved wildlife from ever becoming entangled, and boosted tourism by ensuring clean, beautiful shorelines.
removing invasive plant material from parks, and targeting illegal dump sites. Tampa Bay residents answered the call to action – Green Starts Here – along with 3 million other volunteers across the country. Keep America Beautiful Great American Cleanup is the largest volunteer community improvement effort in the United States. The goal is to create more sustainable communities, foster unity, and strengthen community bonds through beautification and improvement efforts.

What Does The Fox Say?
Article and photo by Jeffrey Neil Fox
It’s just a few short months ‘till the start of the regular NFL season. I know that I along with all the other fans of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers am looking forward to this coming season with great anticipation and expectations. Many changes have been made here on the home front. New coach, revised logo/ uniform change, many off-season free agent and trade acquisitions to name a few. All the draft picks are rookies and the competition and preparation is different in the NFL from how they were coached and groomed during their collegiate career. I do know that you will need a roster at training camp to become familiar with all the new players and numbers that will be on the team. I’m wondering what players will emerge when it comes to making the final roster right before the season starts. Speculation will grow rampant as training camp begins and all the players fight to make their spot on the roster. There are no position guarantees. I am curious who will end up being the starting quarterback once the season unfolds. The quarterback is the field general and has to be the most important player on the offense since he touches the ball every play.
There is a new cast of players/coaches and it does take time and repetition to play as a team and be competitive. There is a clean slate at One Buccaneer Place for the most part. The new general manager and coach have made many changes, and I’m sure more adjustments are sure to take place. Every decision is based to give the team the best chances of winning. I do know that winning solves all ills. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been long overdue for an extended season and a trip to the playoffs. Will this be the season that our Pewter Pirates fight their way to the NFC South division title or wild card berth to the playoffs? I certainly hope so. Memories of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ inaugural Super Bowl season are still vivid in my mind. I’d like to see the Buccaneers make room for another coveted silver Vince Lombardi Super Bowl trophy at One Buccaneer Place headquarters. Tampa has been become the apex of sports in Florida. We are lucky to have the Buccaneers, Rays, Lightning, and the USF Bulls representing the fans of Tampa Bay and playing here in Tampa. I do think that Tampa has some of the best fans in the country. We are fortunate to have so many teams to follow at the stadium arenas and on television for both home and away games. Having all these great sports teams and venues adds to the quality of your life. The NFL and NCAA football season soon return as well as the popular activity of tailgating. What does the Fox say? You have to root and hoot for the hometown teams.

Just When Things Were Looking Better
Have you ever been through a season of severe difficulty and trouble? You thought the crisis was over and things were turning around for the better only to find out the greatest challenge was still in front of you. We have all experienced those kinds of seasons in our lives and maybe that is where you find yourself right now. So, what do you do? In the Bible, the Book of Acts records the story of the Apostle Paul, who lived through two years of hardship being falsely accused and imprisoned. He was now being transported as a prisoner aboard a ship headed for Rome to stand trial before Caesar. During this voyage, the ship was caught up in a severe storm with hurricane force winds, causing extensive damage to the ship and loss of the cargo. The lives of all 276 people aboard were in jeopardy. The ship was being carried along by the storm and after nearly two weeks, those on board had lost all hope of being rescued. But, that night, Paul had an angelic visitor who told him that his prayers were heard and he and all aboard would live, and even though the ship would be wrecked, all would make it safely to land. The very next day, the word Paul had received came to pass. The crew discovered an island. They hoisted the sail and made for the land, but the ship ran aground and was broken to pieces by the waves. Miraculously, everyone on board made it safely to the island. Surely, the worst was over. God came through in just the nick of time and
delivered Paul just as he promised. Now, safely on land, they received a warm welcome by the people on the island. It was rainy and cold, so a fire was built to warm these brave survivors. It looked like the worst was over for Paul. Those who accompanied him were thankful for his faith and praised God for their deliverance from the sea. Just as they were warming themselves around the fire, Paul decided to help by adding some more wood, but as he threw the sticks on the flames, a venomous snake came from that wood and bit Paul, attaching itself to his hand by its deadly fangs. The residents of the island recognized the kind of snake and determined that Paul would surely die. At that point, Paul, could have just given up and died. He could have just chalked it up to one of those mysterious unknowns that so many blame God for, or he could stand on the word the Lord had given him before he ever got on that ship. You see, God had already shown Paul he would testify before Caesar regarding his faith in Christ. What did Paul do? He shook the serpent off his hand into the fire and felt no harm from the snakebite. We have all been bitten by tragic events that could poison our lives, but just as Paul did, we need to shake off the work of the serpent and keep serving God. Don’t let the poison trouble brings poison you. Because Paul persevered, many on the island heard the gospel and experienced the power of God. Paul went on to Rome and before his acquittal, he wrote many of the New Testament books. What things would you leave undone if you quit now?
