Our friend Dan Schroth is teaching a class on Jeremiah. In the chapel last night, he showed the movie "Jeremiah" starring Patrick Dempsey. It was a pretty good movie but boy was Jeremiah's life depressing. If you haven't read the book of Jeremiah in the Bible, it is an interesting read about a prophet called by God to warn the people of their sins. He definitely wasn't "politically correct" or popular, but he chose to obey God. It was interesting, the chapel was full of CBTS students, during parts of the movie that I didn't think were funny at all, the whole chapel would erupt in laughter. I think it had to do with the fact that they could relate to life being hard, and also to Jeremiah's reaction of NOT wanting to do what God was asking him to do. These students have given up quite a bit to pursue the life of ministry that God has called them to. Even after being "entertained" with an example of living for God, which was not a life of comfort for Jeremiah, I still didn't "get it". We got back to our house after the movie to find a mouse in our living room, then I woke to a mouse in my bedroom. After watching all that Jeremiah had to endure, a little mouse about put me over the edge.


  1. Marie, if you have any access to borax, try this:
    Sprinkle borax on the floor along the walls (mice like to run along the side of walls). They don’t like getting the borax on their feet, so they are less likely to return to that area of the house.

    If you sprinkle a generous amount all around the outside of the house, they're less likely to come into the house, because they don't like to get the borax powder on their feet.

  2. Here's more:
    2. By Kill Method
    b) By mixing chocolate powder with cement
    c) By mixing any food stuff with borax powder. Borax being a poisonous kills them.
    d) Induce instant potato as baits as they require much more water to consume and this process can lead to their death.
    e) Cats: Our feline friends have been kept since ages with the sole purpose of hunting them!

    I'm thinking you have access to cement powder, and I'd think chocolate powder shouldn't be difficult...
