Good Things To Read.


After living a "decent" life, my time on earth came to an end. The first
thing I remember is sitting on a bench in the waiting room of what I thought
to be a courthouse.  The doors opened and I was instructed to come in and
have a seat by the defense table. As I looked around I saw the "prosecutor."
He was a villainous looking gent who snarled as he stared at me. He
definitely was the most evil person I have ever seen.

I sat down and looked to my left and there sat my lawyer, a kind and gentle
looking man whose appearance seemed familiar to me.

The corner door flew open and there appeared the judge in full flowing robe.
He commanded an awesome presence as he moved across the room. I couldn't take
my eyes off of him. As he took his seat behind the bench, he said, "Let us

The prosecutor rose and said, "My name is Satan and I am here to show you why
this man belongs in hell." He proceeded to tell of lies that I told, things
that I stole, and in the past when I cheated others.  Satan told of other
horrible perversions that were once in my life and the more he spoke, the
further down in my seat I sank. I was so embarrassed that I couldn't look at
anyone, even my own lawyer, as the Devil told of sins that even I had
completely forgotten about.

As upset as I was at Satan for telling all these things about me, I was
equally upset at my representative who sat there silently not offering any
form of defense at all. I knew I had been guilty of those things, but I had
done some good in my life - couldn't that at least equal out part of the harm
I had done?

Satan finished with a fury and said, "This man belongs in hell, he is guilty
of all that I have charged and there is not a person who can prove

When it was his turn, my lawyer first asked if he might approach the bench.
The judge allowed this over the strong objection of Satan, and beckoned him
to come forward. As he got up and started walking, I was able to see him in
his full splendor and majesty.  I realized why he seemed so familiar. This
was Jesus representing me, my Lord and my Savior!!

He stopped at the bench and softly said to the judge, "Hi Dad," and then he
turned to address the court. "Satan was correct in saying that this man has
sinned, I won't deny any of these allegations. And yes the wage of sin is
death, and this man deserves to be punished." Jesus took a deep breath and
turned to his Father with
outstretched arms and proclaimed, "However, I died on the cross so that this
person might have eternal life and he has accepted me as his Savior, so he is
mine." My Lord continued with, "His name is written in the book of life and
no one can snatch him from me.

Satan still does not understand yet. This man is not to be given justice, but
rather mercy." As Jesus sat down, he quietly paused, looked at his Father and
replied, "There is nothing else that needs to be done. I've done it all."

The judge lifted his mighty hand and slammed the gavel down. The following
words bellowed from his lips... "This man is free. The penalty for him has
already been paid in full.  Case dismissed."

As my Lord led me away, I could hear Satan ranting and raving, "I won't give
up, I'll win the next one!"

I asked Jesus as he gave me my instructions where to go next, "Have you ever
lost a case?"

Christ lovingly smiled and said, "Everyone that has come to me and asked me
to represent them has received the same verdict as you, Paid in Full."

If you do not pass this along to 15 people immediately, absolutely nothing
will happen. No curse, no bad fortune, absolutely nothing. Passing this on to
anyone you consider a friend, (as I have done here), will bless you both;
that is what Jesus promised us all.

Big Mud Puddles and Sunny Yellow Dandelions
 Author Unknown

 When I look at a patch of dandelions, I see a bunch of weeds that are going
to take over my yard.
 My kids see flowers for Mom and blowing white fluff you can wish on.
 When I look at an old drunk and he smiles at me, I see a smelly, dirty
person who probably wants money and I look away.
 My kids see someone smiling at them and they smile back.
 When I hear music I love, I know I can't carry a tune and don't have much
rhythm so I sit self-consciously and listen.
 My kids feel the beat and move to it. They sing out the words. If they don't
know them, they make up their own.
 When I feel wind on my face, I brace myself against it. I feel it messing up
my hair and pulling me back when I walk.
 My kids close their eyes, spread their arms and fly with it, until they fall
to the ground laughing.
When I pray, I say thee and thou and grant me this, give me that.
My kids say, "Hi God! Thanks for my toys and my friends. Please keep the bad
dreams away tonight. Sorry, I don't want to go to Heaven yet. I would miss my
Mommy and Daddy."
 When I see a mud puddle I step around it. I see muddy shoes and dirty
 My kids sit in it. They see dams to build, rivers to cross, and worms to
play with.
 I wonder if we are given kids to teach or to learn from? No wonder God loves
the little children!
 Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you may look back and realize
they were the big things.
 I wish you Big Mud Puddles and Sunny Yellow Dandelions!!!
