MAMAS DON’T LET YOUR BABIES GROW UP TO BE COWBOYS

15 years ago yesterday (2/13), West Texas (Littlefield) native, Waylon Jennings passed away. I loved his “outlaw country” music when I was growing up.

STUNNING PHOTO

The caption reads:  “This is a picture taken directly above these camels in the desert in Saudi Arabia during sunset.  It is considered one of the best pictures of the year by National GeographicLook closely – the camels are (actually) the little white lines in the picture.  The black you see are just the shadows!  Enlarge the picture (so you can get a better look.)

FOR THOSE WITH ANXIETY AT BEDTIME…

“In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety.” (Psalm 4:8)

19th Century British pastor, Charles Spurgeon, comments on this passage in his “Treasury of David” Commentary on the Psalms“They that have the wings of God above them need no other protective curtain. Better than bolts and bars is the protection of the Lord. Armed men protected the bed of Solomon, but we do not believe that he slept more soundly than his father (Davd, author of Psalm 4), whose bed was the hard ground, and who was haunted by blood-thirsty foes.”

 

ENCOUNTER is APRIL 2-5

“Encounter” is an evangelistic crusade led by evangelist (and Jason’s good friend), Ronnie Hill.  You can read more about Ronnie here“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)

QUOTE(s) of the WEEK:

“If people gossip to you about others, they will probably gossip to others about you.”  Sean McDowell

“There is nothing standing in the records of eternity against any soul that believes in the Lord Jesus Christ.”  Charles Spurgeon

 

LAUGHTER IS GOOD MEDICINE

“I don’t want to say my congregation is musically unsophisticated, but about half of them think a cantata is an entree at Taco Bell.” – Jerry Springston

 

This parody of running late for church while looking for a parking place is pretty funny…
