Fireworks stands that have
begun business along roadsides in
Texas this year should be a
reminder not only that July
Fourth is near, but also that
fireworks bodily injured at least
6.139 people in America last year.
That statistic includes i,207
serious eye injuries. Most resulted
to some degree in permanent
vision loss or impairment.
Most accidents—about 60 per-
cent—occurred to children young-
er than 15. In one Texas accident,
the child was merely a bystander
not using the fireworks that
damaged his eye.
The statistics, compiled by the
Consumer Product Safety Com-
mission, are probably low, since
they include only people who were
treated in hospital emergency
Such injuries are needless.
“The Texas Society to Prevent
Blindness urges that all fireworks
be restricted to licensed public
Most eye injuries were caused
by bottle rockets and most
injuries, according to the Ameri-
can Pyrotechnics Association,
were caused by improperly handl-
All fireworks are dangerous.
“To take only two examples,
sparklers burn at about 1,500
degrees Fahrenheit, and punks
can cause lacerations, punctures
and severe burns.”
Fireworks are illegal within the
city limits of Port Aransas. Let’s
all have a safe and happy Fourth!

Key Thought: .........................The Believer’s enemy - Satan.
God said to the serpent, Satan’s counterpart, “Because thou hast
done this repulsive thing, thou hast been condemned as the lowest
repulsive thing crawling upon thy belly, and I will put enmity between
thee and the woman and between thy seed and her seed. It shall bruise
thy head, and thou shall bruise his heel.” Christians vision Christ on
their horizon. Satan’s comsuming passion is to be worshipped, he so
declared in Matthew 4:9. Satan is the prince of the world. His influence
is felt worldwide. The love of money became so inflated in social status
that people became treacherous, deceitful, using any method to obtain it.
However, Satan has followed God’s children down through the centuries,
causing wars and all the devastation and suffering. But God’s people
have never deterred, now nor then, to continue their march to Calvary.
Jesus Christ was born in a groaning creation, and died for it. So one
day it will become a free creation, tree from slavery and corruption.
Calvary: Calvary was much more than a political manuever to solve a
problem in ancient Israel. Calvary was part of a long conflict between
God and Satan. At Calvary, Satan bruised Christ’s heel, but Christ
bruised Satan's head. The story of Job is evidence that Satan can bring
suffering to God’s people. It is also evidence that Satan is restricted by
God’s will. Whenever suffering comes in the will of God, it can be met
by the grace of God. Satan buffeted Paul until the apostle prayed three
times for relief. God did not answer his prayer to remove the thorn from
the flesh, but he did provide the grace that was needed. “Mv grace is
sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” II Cor. 12:9.
The suffering of Christ and His people will be furthered in our next
