As I watch the news, read postings on Social Media sites, observe others as I lis- ten to experiences of co- workers and acquaintanc- es/readers as I walk on the streets of our hometown and surrounding areas, it seems the people of the world are becoming, more connected to their DEVICES than each other. As I was reading my Crosswalks this morning, I came across this story and would like to share it with you. First, our prayer for the day. "A Prayer to Love When It's Inconvenient" By Karen Ehman Father, forgive me for the times I choose condemnation over love, rudeness over kindness, or desire to do noth- ing rather than do the right thing. Please prompt my heart and interrupt my momentary schedule so my actions may reflect who You are. In Jesus' Name, Amen. "Let everyone see that you are considerate in all you do. Remember, the Lord is coming soon." Philippians 4:5 (NLT) Recently as :I:-wai'ted in line at a coffee house, a frail, elderly woman stood in front of me ordering a meal. She seemed distressed as she fumbled for her change, paid the worker, and then gathered up her bag of food and her drink. As she headed for the door, her large purse began swinging off of her shoulder, nearly knocking her, and all of her lunch, to the floor. "Oh how am I going to do this? Oh my oh dear I can't " she mumbled to herself, trying to shift her weight and hercargo, while pushing open the door at the same time. Though I'd just finally reached the front of the line, God used today's key verse to tap me on the heart and shift my momentary sched- ule. "Here, let me get that for you," I uttered as I held the door open and steadied her drink. "Would you like me to carry your food to your car?" She stopped in her tracks, her bright blue eyes looking up at me with gratefulness. "Oh dear you must have a grandmother living that you're so kind to an old woman." "No ma'am, I don't," I answered. "I just love Jesus and He wants me to help you." Her face softened. She shook her head and decided- ly declared: "Of course! You people,have always been so helpful to me. I don't know what I'd do without you." You people. I'm pretty sure she meant, "You Christians." It reminded me of the age- old truth: More is caught than taught. And it demonstrated to me that people are watch- ing. What do they see? Do they see us being considerate in all we do? Sadly, I have been why, would they want to become one?

Critics said the airplane could not fly. With a reporter on board, Hughes flew the Spruce Goose for a total of 26 seconds, 70 feet above the water, for a mile. The aircraft is currently on display at the Evergreen Aviation Museum in McMinnville, Oregon. Nov. 3.

What became known as the Koli Point action begins today and will last nearly ten days as 3,500 Marines and soldiers clash with a Japanese force of about equal strength. The American force under the command of Marine Corps Major General Alexander Vandegrift put the Japanese in retreat. The Americans suffer about 40 killed while the Japanese lose over 450. The Americans not only protect an increasingly important Henderson Field, they drive the Japanese further away from the airfield. Nov. 4. Today in 1979, a mob of Iranians invade the US Embassy in Tehran, taking 90 hostages including 53 Americans. An embassy is supposed to be sovereign soil of its country. As the mob approached the embassy, guards were not allowed to use deadly force. This became known as the Iran Hostage Crisis as the Americans were kept cap- tive for 444 days, symbolically emasculating then President Jimmy Carter and leading to his sound defeat in his re-elec- tion bid.
