A Short Testimony
Today, Thursday is the day that I meet with the Fairview FCA on a weekly basis. I was very proud of my niece Karly who decided to address the group and share how God is directing her through a time of trials. I won't go into details, but what she did today touched a many people.
Since we recently honored our veterans I wanted to relay a story about a Marine. There are several places on the Internet with this story and it may or may not be true however, I can totally believe that this could happen.
A Sergeant having served his time with the Marine Corps took a new job as a school teacher. Just before the school year started he injured his back. He was required to wear a plaster cast around the upper part of his body. Fortunately, the cast fit under his shirt and wasn't noticeable.
On the first day of class, he found himself assigned to the toughest students in the school. The smart alack punks, having already heard the new teacher was a Marine, were leery of him and decided to see how tough he really was before trying any pranks.
Walking confidently into the rowdy classroom, the new teacher opened the window wide and sat down at his desk. When a strong breeze made his tie flap, he took a stapler and promptly stapled the tie to his chest....... twice.
He had no trouble with discipline that year.
Much love, Dennis
