I knew I'd lose it so I put it in a safe place, and now I can't remember where it is.

One thing I keep meaning to blog about is the plethora of amazing aphorisms found on the signs outside churches. For those of you who have never been to the South, nearly every church (and there are a lot - Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, Episcopalian, Catholic, AME Zion, Jehovah's Witnesses, Church of Christ, and more) has a sign outside it similar to the ones found outside Burger King, a diner or a gas station - backlit with black letters that you can rearrange to spell everything from 'TRY OUR ULTIMATE WHOPPER $5.99' to 'JESUS SAVES'. I've been trying to keep track of some of my favorites:

PRAYER CHANGES THINGS

HEADED THE WRONG WAY? GOD ALLOWS U-TURNS [by the side of the four-lane highway]

LET HIM TAKE THE FREE GIFT OF THE WATER OF LIFE

TRY JESUS HE'S ALRIGHT

There are so many more, so this is to be continued...
