Sunday Spiritual - Lord's Prayer

 The Lords Prayer

BY A 15-year-old SCHOOL KID who got an A+ for this entry
The Lord's Prayer Is not allowed in most
US Public schools any more.
A kid in Minnesota, wrote the following
NEW School Prayer:
Now I sit me down in school
Where praying is against the rule
For this great nation under God
Finds mention of Him very odd.
If scripture now the class recites,
It violates the Bill of Rights.
And anytime my head I bow
Becomes a Federal matter now.
Our hair can be purple, orange or green,
That's no offense; it's a freedom scene..
The law is specific, the law is precise.
Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.
For praying in a public hall
Might offend someone with no faith at all..
In silence alone we must meditate,
God's name is prohibited by the State..
We're allowed to cuss and dress like freaks,
And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks...
They've outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible.
To quote the Good Book makes me liable.
We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,
And the 'unwed daddy,' our Senior King.
It's 'inappropriate' to teach right from wrong,
We're taught that such 'judgments' do not belong..
We can get our condoms and birth controls,
Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles...
But the Ten Commandments are not allowed,
No word of God must reach this crowd.
It's scary here I must confess,
When chaos reigns the school's a mess.
So, Lord, this silent plea I make:
Should I be shot; My soul please take!
If you aren't ashamed to do this, Please pass this on..
Jesus said, 'If you are ashamed of me, I will be ashamed of you before my Father.'

Not ashamed. Passing this on.

Friday Fun - #CCfrnds #CAPSTeam

It's Friday!!!

Let's find your smile!

Lesson for Today:


One day a 6 year old girl was sitting in a


classroom. The teacher was going to explain


evolution to the children. The teacher asked


a little boy: Tommy do you see the tree


outside? TOMMY= Yes.


TEACHER: Tommy, do you see the grass


outside? TOMMY= Yes.


TEACHER: Go outside and look up and see


if you can see the sky.


TOMMY= Okay. (He returned a few minutes


later) Yes, I saw the sky.


TEACHER: Did you see God up there? TOMMY= No.


TEACHER: That's my point. We can't see


God because he isn't there. Possibly he just doesn't exist.


A little girl spoke up and wanted to ask the boy some questions.


The teacher agreed and the little girl asked the boy: Tommy, do            you see the tree outside?




LITTLE GIRL: Tommy do you see the grass outside?


TOMMY= Yessssss!


LITTLE GIRL: Did you see the sky?


TOMMY= Yessssss!


LITTLE GIRL: Tommy, do you see the teacher?




LITTLE GIRL: Do you see her brain?




LITTLE GIRL: Then according to what we were taught today in    school, she possibly may not even have one!


(You=Go Girl!)
