This is Hobby Lobby’s newspaper ad for Easter, 2007:
Archive for the ‘Message of the Day’
This T-Shirt was found at the Texas Road House in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
Two weeks after Easter, one might observe that the wearer hasn’t quite grasped the message of Christianity.
It’s Easter, the celebration of Jesus’ resurrection, the miracle upon which Christianity is based.
Found this cross of bread when we had Easter dinner at my sister-in-law’s a couple of years ago.
It was good.
My Grandmother Addie Watling-Skinner had a glass replication of Durer’s praying hands on her coffee table. My cousin has them now.
Nothing expensive, but they probably had more significance than I realized as a youth.
Today is a day that some Christian church’s hold prayer vigils. My First United Methodist Church has done this for several years and is doing again this year tonight through Easter. (If you have prayers for the vigil, drop them off at the church–corner of West Crystal Lake and Dole Avenues–anytime before or during the vigil.)
That brings me to the Message of the Day–my grandmother’s praying hands, but rendered in chocolate, rather than in glass.
Marshall Lowe has a sign east of the Thornton’s Gas Station in Cary on which he puts pithy comments.
His latest is on gun control.
This is a Valentine from God taken from John 3:16.
This being Lincoln’s Birthday, it seems appropriate to show you what I found at the main library of the Algonquin Area Library District.
It’s Lincoln’s name with letters most of which seem to be taken from Illinois license plates.
We reach way back to 2008 for today’s message.
It’s on a T-shirt worn at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom.
I’ve commented before at my surprise to see so many tee shirts there with religious messages.
When I pulled my Chicago Tribune out of the plastic bag and put it on the kitchen counter, you see what I saw:
From my point of view, this is where ads are placed to interfere with my reading the front page. Usually I just rip them off.
This time my political antennae went up as I read the first part of President Ronald Reagan’s famous TV debate question:
“Are you better off now
Why would that be on the front page of the Tribune the day for President Barack Obama’s second Inauguration Ceremony?
As I turned the paper over, I read the rest of the question:
than you were 4 million years ago?”
Down at the bottom in much, much smaller type was “The Croods.”
Turns out it has nothing to do with Obama, but is promoting a movie called “The Croods” coming out on March 22nd.
