Mr. John Moving On!!
One of my favorite "quotes"

"Never attribute to malice which can adequately be explained by stupidity"

I was shocked, confused, bewildered 
As I entered Heaven's door
Not by the beauty of it all, 
Nor the lights or its decor. 

But it was the folks in Heaven 
Who made me sputter and gasp-- 
The thieves, the liars, the sinners,
The alcoholics and the trash. 

There stood the kid from seventh grade 
Who swiped my lunch money twice. 
Next to him was my old neighbor 
Who never said anything nice. 

Bob, who I always thought 
Was rotting away in hell, 
Was sitting pretty on cloud nine, 
Looking incredibly well. 

I nudged Jesus, 'What's the deal? 
I would love to hear Your take. 
How'd all these sinners get up here? 
God must've made a mistake. 

'And why is everyone so quiet, 
So somber - give me a clue.' 
'Hush, child,' He said,
'they're all in shock. 
No one thought they'd be seeing you.' 


Remember...Just going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in your garage makes you a car. 

Every saint has a PAST... 
Every sinner has a FUTURE! 


Words of wisdom (While not politically correct for the 21st century, it was written 100 years ago. I like this poem because it illustrates cultural differences between eastern and western philosophies) from Rudyard Kipling;
