The Laymans Bible Commentary states that"there is no doubt that it is Gods hand that determines the course of affairs" (Ke ...

    Even Elephants are Afraid of Mice - A Creative Essay Ping! The sonar continued its never ending beat.

A whisper of sound and the chase would begin. The mouse was no fool. It would not let out so much as a squeak to give the cat the thrill of the hunt. It would bide its time in the shadows of the deep blue grotto until the cat succumbed to boredom and left it well enough alone. "They're still out there, aren't they?" said the man quietly. His voice was deep and ominous, but he dared not allow the fear g ...
