Comedy Corner
The Duck Dog
An avid duck hunter was in the market for a new bird dog. His search ended when he found a dog that could actually walk on water to retrieve a duck. Shocked by his find, he was sure none of his friends would ever believe him. He decided to try to break the news to a friend of his, the eternal pessimist who refused to be impressed with anything. This, surely, would impress him. He invited him to hunt with him and his new dog. As they waited by the shore, a flock of ducks flew by. they fired, and a duck fell. The dog responded and jumped into the water. The dog, however, did not sink but instead walked across the water to retrieve the bird, never getting more than his paws wet. This continued all day long; each time a duck fell, the dog walked across the surface of the water to retrieve it. The pessimist watched carefully, saw everything, but did not say a single word. On the drive home the hunter asked his friend, "Did you notice anything unusual about my new dog?" "I sure did," responded the pessimist. "He can't swim."


Weekly Bible Verses:
7If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. 8 By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples. 9 As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love. 10 If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments and abide in his love. 11 These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. John 15:7-11 ESV

Main Topic
Today in 1815, Americans defeat British forces at the Battle of New Orleans! 

Did you know that we used to celebrate January 8 as a national holiday, with fireworks & celebrations, just like the Fourth of July! 

We felt that we'd won the war that was, effectively, our 2nd war of independence! The outcome of the Revolution had been more than just a fluke!

On December 24, 1814, Great Britain and the United States signed a treaty in Ghent, Belgium that effectively ended the War of 1812. News was slow to cross the pond, however, and on January 8, 1815, the two sides met in what is remembered as one of the conflict’s biggest and most decisive engagements. In the bloody Battle of New Orleans, future President Andrew Jackson and a motley assortment of militia fighters, frontiersmen, slaves, Indians and even pirates weathered a frontal assault by a superior British force, inflicting devastating casualties along the way. The victory vaulted Jackson to national stardom, and helped foil plans for a British invasion of the American frontier.

Do this one thing everyday

God - Share your testimony to someone new or share how God has blessed you recently with someone every day, or mentor a new believer of young person in the bible.

Guns/Liberty - Teach history/Civics/Skill/ something to the next generation or take someone hunting, fishing, or invest in the next generation or two.

NRA Armed Citizen

Man shot during home invasion; suspect in custody
NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Police have a man in custody for a burglary that ended with two people shot. Officers were called to a home in the 7900 block of Victory Drive in Wards Corner around 1:30 a.m. on Wednesday. They arrived to find two men suffering from gunshot wounds. Both men were taken to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital and are both expected to fully recover from their injuries. Detectives have determined that 22-year-old Robert Hicks forced his way into the home, then exchanged gunfire with a 23-year-old man inside. Both men were shot. Hicks is charged with armed burglary, according to Norfolk Police. A witness at the scene told 10 On Your Side, “I was sleeping and about an hour ago, and we heard, pop, pop gunshots. My son immediately came to the room,  woke me up … I look out my window, and I see them (police) out there with their guns drawn.” This witness, who did not want to be identified, said she heard police tell a man to “get on the ground” at least 10 times. She said she feared there was going to be a standoff between that man and officers.
