Weather battles Atlantis launch

posted by Linda G. Howard

While traffic clogs the highways in Brevard County, Florida, the threat of showers and thunder storms bring a 70 percent chance that the launch of the shuttle Atlantis will be cancelled.

This final shuttle launch will bring to an end three decades of successes and tragedy.  Even though two of the shuttle vehicles in the fleet exploded, there have been three decades of successes since the first launch on April 12, 1981.  The Challenger shocked the world as it exploded seconds after its launch on January 28, 1986, killing the entire crew.  Columbia exploded on reentry February 1, 2003 over the state of Texas.  Again, there were no surviving crew members.

Over a million people are expected to jam their vehicles into Brevard County.  However, the weather remains the story that can scrub this final launch.  No technical or vehicular problems have occurred during the preparation of this launch.  But the NASA team will not risk the crew by launching during inclement weather conditions.

Explaining grace
In the past weeks, I've been going over some of the key words in our covenant relationship with God.  Perhaps one of the most important words we use is grace. Most of us have learned and maybe we even remember God's Riches At Christ's Expense This is great explanation of grace and

Familiar customs and limited means
When the Biblical young woman, Ruth, married into a Jewish family she understood little about their ways, God or religion.  This is my supposition; but I base the conjecture on facts.  Moabites were shunned by the Israelis.  Decades before, Moab wronged the wandering tribes who desired to trav

Pressure Time
Is there a time that you can remember that you were pressured beyond your ability to cope? There have been many for me. As a child, my mother told me again and again that I was constantly burning the candle at both ends. For years, I had no idea what she meant. When I finally understood her, I wa

When we leak
Recently, I've heard a great deal about the things the Holy Spirit was doing in the 1960's and 1970's.  It is interesting to me because those were days through which we lived.  There were times that it seemed that the Lord was tangible enough to reach out and touch.  Even though I was very young-
