I’m not sure where this came from, but it gave me a good chuckle. I’m sure many will want to tweak the punch line just a bit.
A man in Dallas, Texas decided to write a book about churches around the country. He started by flying to San Francisco and started working east from there. Going to a very large church, he began taking photographs and making notes. He spotted a golden telephone on the vestibule wall and was intrigued with a sign, which read “Calls: $10,000 a minute.” Continue Reading »
You may have noticed a few changes with the web site. We have a new look and most importantly we have switched from using Joomla! to using WordPress. I am new to the world of WordPress so there may be a lot of minor changes over the next few weeks. The theme is a modified version of the Seascape theme from WP Theme Shop.

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand; one belonged to him, and the other to the Lord.
When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there were only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life.
This really bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it, “Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you, you’d walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why when I needed you most, you would leave me.”
The Lord replied, “My precious, precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then I carried you.”
For more than five decades we have drifted away from the principals God set forth when he created this great country. We have deluded ourselves into thinking that we could replace God’s laws with the laws of man. This has created a society where anything goes, where there is no right or wrong. My hope is that we can band together to change our country. I truly believe we can do this by getting on our knees and praying to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
My prayer is not that we will not pass laws to make abortions illegal, but that there will be no one seeking abortions.
My prayer is not that we will make pornography illegal, but that they will go out of business due to lack of business.
My prayer is not that we will pass laws regulating morality, but that the people of this great country will become great again because the word of God is written upon their hearts.
My prayer is that God will give us God fearing leaders who seek his counsel and forgiveness. That God will put these men and women into positions of leadership in our governments, our schools, our businesses, our little leagues, our civic organizations and in our churches.
