    Texas fifth best state to drive in U.S. 

    ​​​​WASHINGTON (WalletHub) – Texas is the fifth-best state to drive in America, according to rankings from WalletHub. 

    The Lone Star State ranked 19th in the cost of car ownership and maintenance and 14th in safety. Texas excelled in access to vehicles and maintenance, taking the number two spot. The category in which Texas did the worst was traffic and infrastructure, ranking 43rd. 

    Texas was also fifth in fewest days with precipitation, third in most car washes per capita, and fourth in lowest average gas prices.

    Oregon, Illinois, Indiana, and Iowa took the top four spots. Hawaii ranked last. 

    According to WalletHub, congestion costs the average driver of $1,400 per year in the U.S., which has ten of the world’s 25 worst cities for traffic.

    To compile the list, researchers looked at the cost of car ownership, traffic, safety, and maintenance factors.

    Messianic Prophecy 

    By: Kerby Anderson with Point of View

    On this Christmas week, I thought it would be appropriate to reflect on the coming of the Messiah. The Old Testament contains hundreds of prophecies that give specific detail about the “anointed one” who is the Messiah. The prophets proclaimed that He would come to save the people.

    The Bible is unique in many ways, especially when it comes to fulfilled prophecy.

    At the time when it was written, 27 percent (1800 verses) of the Bible was prophetic. Large portions of those prophecies have been fulfilled, and that is a powerful argument for the inspiration of the Bible.

    What is the probability that these Messianic prophecies could be fulfilled in the life of one person by chance? Peter Stoner, in his book, Science Speaks, calculated the probability of just eight Messianic prophecies being fulfilled by chance. These included the prophecy in Micah 5:2, that the Messiah would be born in Bethlehem. Another was Malachi 3:1, that predicted that a messenger would prepare the way for the Messiah. Four of the prophecies were from Zechariah. They predicted that the Messiah would be betrayed: by a friend, for 30 pieces of silver, and it would be used to buy a potter’s field. Another prophecy said that the Messiah would die by being pierced (crucified).

    Multiplying all of these probabilities together, Peter Stoner came up with a number of 10 to the 17thpower. In other words, the chance that just eight prophecies could be fulfilled by chance is one in one hundred quadrillions. In order to illustrate this, he says imagine we could fill the state of Texas with silver dollars two feet deep. Put a red mark on one and then ask a blindfolded person to travel anywhere in the state. The chance that he would pick up the marked silver dollar on the first try would be one in one hundred quadrillions.

    The conclusion is simple. Jesus is indeed the Messiah predicted by the prophets.

    National Violin Day 

    NATIONAL VIOLIN DAY

    Observed annually on December 13, National Violin Day honors that bowed string instrument, which is also known as the fiddle.

    I used to tease Cara when she began to learn the Violin, that all the cats in the neighborhood showed up at our door. Later I not only felt such a blessing to play music with not just my Daughter but a very talented musician. When someone would ask her what’s the difference in the violin and the fiddle, she would reply, depends on what kind of music I’m playing.

    Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart 

    The composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart died on 5 December 1791 at the age of 35. The circumstances of his death have attracted much research and speculation. With that being said, I choose to continue to enjoy his wonderful music while wondering what more this genius would have accomplished if he’d lived longer! His Symphony No. 1 in E flat major, K. 16,
    was written in 1764 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart at the age of eight years.
