TOP OF THE MANTLE

Hello from Barbara's Entourage

Trip of a Life Time

Just last week, I went on a bus tour to Branson, Missouri. It was my fourth trip there. The tour included many shows and also lunch and a show on the Showboat Branson Belle. There was also a side trip the College of the Ozarks, a college that was started to help students, who could not afford to go to college, to be able to get a good education while working their way through. There is no tuition, but the students work at the college for tuition, and only have to pay for their dormitory room.

During the trip, I also met my good friends from Springfield, Peggie and Joe. Peggie is the Web mistress of Peggie's Place, a Christian web site. We get to see one another once a year, when I go to Branson. This is one of the great highlights of the trip, to visit with them and talk!

This was truly a trip of a lifetime, since I haven't yet been able to get my husband to travel too far away. But, one day, there is truly going to be a trip of-a-lifetime, one that none of us want to miss! It's not going to be made on land by cars, trucks, or buses. It's not going to be made in the air on airplanes. And, it's not going to be made on the water, in boats, ships, or cruise liners. But, it is going to be made 'in the air'.

The Bible tells us to 'look up, lift up your heads, for your redemption draweth nigh'. So much of the Bible's prophecy has come to pass, and one day, Jesus is going to split the eastern sky, and call up all those saints from the graves. And, those of us who are alive, will join him in the 'trip of a life time' - to eternal life with Him.

Luke 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

1 Thessalonians 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

'THIS AND THAT' ...
Joy, Humor, and Faith on the net!

A guy arrives at the pearly gates, waiting to be admitted. St. Peter is reading through the Big Book to see if the guy's name is written in it. After several minutes, St. Peter closes the book, furrows his brow, and says, "I'm sorry, I don't see your name written in the Book." "How current is your copy?" he asks.

"I get a download every ten minutes." St. Peter replies, "Why do you ask?"

"I'm embarrassed to admit it, but I was always the stubborn type. It was not until my death was imminent that I cried out to God, so my name probably hasn't arrived to your copy yet."

"I'm glad to hear that, "Pete says, "but while we're waiting for the update to come through, can you tell me about a really good deed that you did in your life?"

The guy thinks for a moment and says, "Hmmm, well there was this one time when I was driving down a road and I saw a group of biker gang members harassing this poor girl. I slowed down, and sure enough, there they were, about 20 of them harassing this poor woman. Infuriated, I got out my car, grabbed a tire iron out of my trunk, and walked up to the leader of the gang. He was a huge guy; 6-foot-4, 260 pounds, with a studded leather jacket and a chain running from his nose to his ears. As I walked up to the leader, the bikers formed a circle around me and told me to get lost or I'd be next." "So I ripped the leader's chain out of his face and smashed him over the head with the tire iron. Then I turned around and yelled to the rest of them, 'Leave this poor innocent girl alone! You're all a bunch of SICK, deranged animals! Go home before I really teach you a lesson in PAIN!'"

St. Peter, duly impressed, says "Wow! When did this happen"?

"About three minutes ago."
