"The main thing to remember when discussing rubber bands
is entropy. Generally speaking, entropy is chaos, or a lack of order.Entropy is best defined in the Second Law of Thermodynamics, which states that a system will naturally move from a state of order to a state of disorder. This is best illustrated in a rubber band. While not being stretched out, the polymers (molecules that make up the rubber) are tangled up in a random mess, all of them haphazardly lying atop the others. When a rubber band is stretched, though, these molecules lengthen out and become ordered in a single direction. However,
the natural urge is to return to the state of entropy, so as soon as the rubber band is released, it will snap back to its original form and back to a state of entropy."
On Friday, we lived through 11-11-11. We honored our God. We honored Veteran's.
On Sunday, churches across the USA joined in "Orphan Sunday". Our prayer and giving focus was for children who are living without one or more parents.
There are things that STRETCH and grow FAITH more than others. Separated from family and friends while in harm's way is certainly FAITH STRETCHING! Living without the comfort , protection, and guidance of a parent is a mind boggling STRETCH OF FAITH.
Add to Veteran's and Orphans our dear Widows and Widowers! All alone from years spent with his or her Beloved, FAITH IS STRETCHED on a daily basis.
"Those who consider themselves religious and yet do not keep a tight rein on their tongues deceive themselves, and their religion is worthless. 27 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
