Classifieds Lost and found Sande’s Office Jackets- etc. To indicate (events, misfortunes, etc.) as in future; to foreshadow; to bode. Although no humans were there to witness the giant comet of 65 million years ago, in this case it really did portend disaster. -- Walter Alvarez, With mortal crisis doth portend My days to appropinque an end. -- Samuel Butler, Portend comes from Latin portendere, to indicate, to predict, from por- (variant of pro-), before + tendere, to stretch out, to spread. Thus that which portends is that which stretches out before us into the future.

Ask a question and it will be answered. The David & Goliath Water Bomb Epic Event WILL BE RESCHEDULED FOR THE NEXT AVAILABLE WARM DAY. DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED The SAT Question of the Day The following sentence contains either a single error or no error at all. If the sentence contains an error, select the one underlined part that must be changed to make the sentence correct. If the sentence contains no error, select choice E. Long one of the favorite A Characters of American B folklore, Hiawatha is best C known to be the hero D of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s narrative poem The Song of Hiawatha. No error E But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me. Devotional Grace is God’s ability given to us and placed upon us. You are saved by grace, which means that there is nothing you can do to earn your salvation; it is a gift from God. It is what God has done for you. I have also seen that the disciples prayed that God’s grace would be given to one another often. The bible says there is a gift of grace, just like there is a gift of faith, leadership, encouragement and others. When we depend on God totally for His ability( grace) to work through us, then we look to his ability working through us, and we no longer have to consider only our own ability but that God is working through us. That is where the power to overcome difficulties and also to minister to others is found. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
