We may not know much about the thrill of surfing the "tube" of a perfect wave but surfing the "tube of life" in the turbulent seas of today's world can be a hazardous experience to avoid being dumped and drowned in the swirling perilous waters of violence, narcissism and hurtful mockery.
In the dumping experiences on today's wild sea of life there exists a thrilling and Perfect wave "tube" that Christ has provided that has no surprising "dump of death" but rather an experience of great peace now and the exhilarating emergence at the end of His "tube" into Everlasting Life.
You may have (and what person hasn't) had some rough experiences in your 'tube of life' that has rolled in upon you and is hurtling you towards Eternity. And you may also often find yourself asking the Big Question ..... "What is Life all about? Really, what is the reality of it all?
The following (taken from a website promotion brochure) is a brief description of this website contents, which contains some of the many sided answers to life's Big Questions which are wonderfully provided by the great love of God and found in the Bible.
The site is arrayed in a 'static' and not a 'blog' format so that most of the site contents are in plain view, sectioned into menus.
There is no claim to fame or web site dazzle. The presentation is bright and enthusiastic about faith, hope and the love of God in Christ.
There are approximately 500 illustrated articles covering many topics of the Christian life, along with much for those who are seeking answers, those who are broken and troubled, those who are are anxious about life and death.

One very special menu is that of "Pilgrim's Progress" which has been broken up into 30 segments for ease of reading. These articles practically fill the "Most Popular" list. The journey of Pilgrim from the "City of destruction" to the "Celestial city" is nothing short of thrilling. Years ago when the world was more sensible about spiritual things Pilgrim's Progress was part of the school curriculum because of the sheer beautiful principles to build any nation upon. The good and unsavoury characters met along Pilgrim's way illustrate great lessons for humanity: Such characters as - Obstinate, Pliable, Evangelist, Mr. Worldly Wiseman, Good-will, Formalist and Hypocrisy, Faithful, Mr. Talkative, Lord Hate-good, Hopeful, and Giant despair. There are many others with much to guard one's life against to avoid serious pitfalls. The Pilgrim's Progress series is stacked with original wonderfully descriptive sketches providing extra enjoyment in following the journey.
The various "Menus" provide at a glance the site content in those articles listed under that menu heading; for example - "Tasty Menu for lost Sheep" is for those who don't know the way through life and death to eternity. 'Promise for You" is for those who are looking for any of the countless promises in the Word of God. The Menu "Emergency 000 Help when" is a list of noted encouragements and promise verses provided in the "Gideons Bible" found in Hospitals, Motels, Prisons, Schools and many other places. There is much more. Investigate the site and be lifted up! God bless.
* THINKING IT OVER. *
Psalm 92:5 (KJV)
"O LORD, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep."
>> "I'll Be Looking out for you Pappa." <<
Lynn was just seven when she heard the Gospel and became an earnest believer. Her tender heart received Jesus as her Saviour. She loved her father very dearly, but he was not a believer, and was not concerned about the things of God or the work of the church. Each evening as the father returned home from work, Lynn would wait for him at the gate. The wooden gate was high and the palings or stakes were close together. In order that the child might see through to tell if her father was approaching, the father removed one of the palings from the gate. Each evening when the father came home from work, Lynn was without fail waiting for him, eagerly looking through the opening in the gate. What joy as father held the child in his arms and showered her with love.
One day, Lynn fell sick and no doctors could heal her. Her father called in the best specialists but her condition only grew worse. Father was heartbroken and did not know what to do. He loved her more than his own life. As for Lynn, when she knew that she was not getting well, she was not afraid. She knew that her Saviour would take her Home to Heaven. Before she died, Lynn looked at her father and said, "When I get to Heaven I will ask Jesus to pull off a paling from Heaven's gate so I can look through to see you come." Father could not control his tears. Lynn's last words were, "Papa, I will be looking out for you. Promise, you won't be long." Then she fell asleep, safe in the arms of Jesus. Father's heart was melted by his child's words. He yielded to the Saviour and became an earnest believer too. God in His great mercy used the death of an only child to save him.
Dear reader, do you know Jesus Christ as your Saviour? Jesus says, "Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions. If it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where l am, there ye may be also. I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me. " (Jn 14:1-3, 6.) These words tell of God's great love and a Heavenly home for you through the Lord Jesus.
The Lord BLESS. He does the BEST.
