~ God Is Watching Over Us ... Happy 4th ~

The flag is said to have been hung between two cranes in the parking lot of Fry's grocery store in Yuma on September 2, 2001, the day after the Attack on America. According to the folks at the Yuma Elks Lodge the flag is 60 feet tall and 120 feet wide. The picture was taken by Janna Noe who snapped the photo with her digital camera and noticed the cross when she later looked at the pictures.

When light shines through translucent fabric, there is frequently a distribution of the light along the pattern of the weave of the fabric. This particular picture appears to have been taken when the sun was toward the upper portion of the blue section of the flag so the upper portion of the vertical line is shorter than the lower portion, resulting in a traditional looking cross. If the sun had been in the middle of the blue portion of the flag, the lines would have been more equal in each direction.

~ Powerful ~


This should wake us up.

One day, a Man went to visit a church. He got there early, parked His car and got out. Another car pulled up nearby, the driver got out and said, " I always park there! You took my place!" The Visitor went inside for Sunday School, found an empty seat and sat down. A young lady from the church approached Him and stated, "That's my seat! You took my place!" The Visitor was somewhat distressed by this rude welcome, but said nothing. After Sunday School, the Visitor went into the sanctuary and sat down. Another member walked up to Him and said, " That's where I always sit! You took my place!" The Visitor was even more troubled by this treatment, but still He said nothing. Later as the congregation was praying for Christ to dwell among them, the Visitor stood up, and His appearance began to change. Horrible scars became visible on His hands and on His sandaled feet. Someone from the congregation noticed Him and called out, "What happened to You?" The Visitor replied, as His hat became a crown of thorns, and a tear fell from His eye, "I took your place."
