T he slogan of the U S armed Forces is :The difficult we do immediately: the impossible take a little longer. The original version is reputed to have come from Charles A. de Calonne.This seems like a claim to instill confidence. However, in the Bible we do have recordings of many such impossibilities.

One was the mythical Ju Ying Tai, and who killed herself at the tomb of her love on her wedding day (aka story of the "Butterfly Lovers") . The other is, of course, Hua Mulan, a famous lady in Chinese history, who disguised herself as a man and went to war as a soldier in place of her aging father. This was indeed daring in the time when women stayed home, d...Read more
Have you heard the story of Ruth? She married an Israelite, but was widowed. She was determined to accompany her widowed mother-in-law back to her home land.

Let's look at what some people and the Bible say about success.
Fred Seely: Success comes in cans, failure in can'ts.
