It is a true story about my near death experience.

does not have to be an ending with a surprise."

It is a true story about the new heart beat in

Wash Away Your Sins Products
There are products on the market that claim to "Wash away your sins". Some of the labels include: "Kills sins on contact", "Right your wrongs with a wipe"; "Spot check for stubborn", "Discard sins in waste receptacle"  and "Go forth purified". I state: "If you try washing your sins away with worldly means, you will only get irritations because your sins are skin deep."
Fooled by Bagworms
Many things in our society may fool us. They may look so innocence, natural, and inviting but inside they are nothing but worms, waiting to destroy our relationships, our happiness, our hope, and our lives. "If you bite into a good looking apple and find half a worm, you should start to worry."
It is an illustration of a trucking company that placed more importance on profit, than people and tried to use GOD's name for self-gain. "We do not need a phone to call GOD"
This devotional tells about how we as Christians need to thought life, and our devotion. "Those who sin less can sometimes think they are sinless by their attitudes and become the most difficult people to be with."

The new Pennsylvania Governor lives down the street. I see his house every day. He knows my name but do I have access to him? No. However, there is someone much higher than the Governor. He knows my name. He has already prepared a mansion for me where I will live forever
Forever Stamp
The Forever Stamp is really a miss leading named. After it is cancelled, it cannot be used again. It is thrown in the trash and perished in the continuous fire of an incinerator. The word "Forever" on the stamp can be a great evangelist tool. "Jesus already paid the price for this male to go air mail. I proudly wear His Forever Stamp. So can you."
The True Reason For Christmas
