Headline of the Morning

“More than half of Americans have something in their house

                   held together by Duct tape”

In fact, 88% of Americans say that when something breaks in their home, their first instinct is to reach for the duct tape.

https://www.swnsdigital.com/2019/10/research-reveals-that-americans-will-try-to-use-duct-tape-to-patch-up-just-about-anything/

Some unique uses for Duct Tape…

Temporary Hem –Use duct tape to create a temporary hem on too-long pants.

Remove Splinters – Duct tape is sticky…

Remove Lint – Use duct tape to make an impromptu lint roller!

Hide Valuables – Use a piece of duct tape to hide small objects in a place.

Duct tape is strong enough to secure keys, money, credit cards, and more!

Remove Warts – Many people have successfully removed warts using duct tape! The theory is that if you keep a wart completely sealed off for several days so that you cut off the oxygen supply and suffocate it.

A beautiful illustration of forgiveness in the courtroom yesterday…

The brother of a man shot dead in his own apartment by a woman who said she mistook the victim’s apartment for her own – the brother – forgave the woman and even hugged her in front of the courtroom on Wednesday.

Brandt Jean (the victim’s brother) was allowed by Judge Tammy Kemp to address Amber Guyger (the defendant) directly from the witness stand.

Brandt Jean told Amber Guyger that he thinks his brother would have wanted her to turn her life over to Christ and that if she can ask God for forgiveness, she will get it.  Check out the emotional video on our Facebook page / wbfj

The judge also gave Guyger a Bible and read her John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosever  believes on Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.”  She also embraced Guyger before leaving the courtroom. BTW: Amber Guyer will serve a 10-year sentence for killing Botham Jean in his own apartment. https://www1.cbn.com/cbnnews/us/2019/october/powerful-botham-jeans-brother-forgives-offers-christ-and-embraces-police-officer-who-nbsp-killed-his-brother
