This large gravel mine, now supplying product for a major road upgrade, has turned this section of Manitoba's Birdtail River valley into a hive of activity. It has also brought noise, emissions and congestion to the surrounding area .
PLT: This article sprouts from the fertile mind of John Fefchak, a writer from Virden, Manitoba and a regular contributor to this blog. (It's a refinement of a piece he did, which appeared here some time ago.) I believe you'll find it both funny and provocative. In it, he speaks of modern-day policy-makers forsaking their God-given duty to care for planet Earth. Instead, they have turned their backs on ancient biblical teachings and abandoned their sacred duty as stewards of our water resources, from which all life springs.
"There shall come forth a shoot from the stump of Jessie, and a branch shall grow out of his roots." Isaiah 11:1-10
by John Fefchak
Before there was anything, there was GOD, a few angels and huge swirling globs of rocks and water with no place to go.
The angels asked GOD: "Why don't you clean up this mess"?
So GOD collected rocks from the huge swirling glob and put them together in clumps and said, "Some of these clumps of rocks will be planets and some will be stars and some of these rocks will be…just rocks".
