Thanks Dr. George Grant

by

Dr. Grant’s Blog is listed on the right-hand side of this backwater (located under Best-O-Blogs).  His posts almost always bring a smile and an opportunity to ponder.

Earlier this month he pointed us HERE.  The author, Ambrose Bierce, was a veteran of several battles in the War Between the States:  Shiloh, Picketts’s Mill, Chickamunga, and Franklin.  In the linked story Bierce tells us of the Battle of Franklin and one sentence jumped out at me:

But fools are God’s peculiar care, and one of his protective methods is the stupidity of other fools.

My stupidity, especially in my youth, must set high marks in the “protection of other fools” department.  May God continue to use fools to His own advantage.
