July in Texas


The birds have to use potholders to pull worms out of the ground.

The best parking place is determined by shade instead of distance.

Hot water now comes out of both taps. You can make sun tea instantly.

You learn that a seat belt buckle makes a pretty good branding iron.

The temperature drops below 95 and you feel a little chilly.

You discover that in July it only takes 2 fingers to steer your car.

You discover that you can get sunburned through your car window.

You actually burn your hand opening the car door.

You break into a sweat the instant you step outside at 7:30 a.m.

Your biggest bicycle wreck fear is, 'What if I get knocked out and end up lying on the pavement and cook to death?'

You realize that asphalt has a liquid state.

The potatoes cook underground, so all you have to do is pull one out and add butter, salt and pepper.

Farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying boiled eggs.

The cows are giving evaporated milk.

Ah, what a place to call home. God Bless The Great State of TEXAS!!! Wouldn't live anywhere else!

I have posted three of 18 videos for the Benedictine Monastery in England. If you want more...check them out at You Tube.

Here is a video of Benedictine sisters in Indiana.

The convent with which I am associated is the All Saints Sisters of the Poor in Catonsville MD. They have been Anglican...still are...until September when they will be in the Roman church. God bless them. Notice they still wear the full habit, unlike the sisters above. If you ever want a spirit-filled and are near Catonsville (Baltimore) this is wonderful.

Monastery 2005, Part 2

Here is the second part of the 18-part series produced by the BBC in 2005.

I had several people ask me about our experience with the local Benedictine Community. It has been meeting for 4 years, but we only heard about it a couple of months ago. It is made up of Anglicans in the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth (our diocese is one of many that have left the Episcopal Church and have formed the Anglican Church of North America[ACNA]). As you may have heard the Episcopal Church USA has just lifted the ban on homosexual bishops! We go out just in time!

As to how we fit into a Benedictine Community, well, we are Anglo-Catholics. Our diocese is mainly Anglo-Catholic and ACNA is in talks with both the Roman and the Orthodox churches, and we hope and pray at some time to be in full communion with both.

Our Community meets monthly. We begin with choir practice of Gregorian Chants. Then we process into the nave chanting for Vespers. After that we eat in silence with one of the members reading aloud. Then we discuss one of the Benedictine Rules. Then we process into the nave for Compline. Then we leave in silence.

Iraq and the Bible

Near the bottom will give you GOOSEBUMPS!!!

You don't want to miss this! ((*_*) )

1. The Garden of Eden was in Iraq

2. Mesopotamia, which is now Iraq, was the cradle of civilization!

3. Noah built the ark in Iraq

4. The Tower of Babel was in Iraq

5. Abraham was from Ur, which is in Southern Iraq

6. Isaac's wife Rebekah is from Nahor , which is in Iraq

7. Jacob met Rachel in Iraq

8. Jonah preached in Nineveh - which is in Iraq

9. Assyria, which is in Iraq, conquered the ten tribes of Israel

10. Amos cried out in Iraq

11. Babylon, which is in Iraq, destroyed Jerusalem

12. Daniel was in the lion's den in Iraq

13. The three Hebrew children were in the fire in Iraq (Jesus had been in Iraq also as the fourth person in the Fiery Furnace!)

14. Belshazzar, the King of Babylon saw the 'writing on the wall' in Iraq

15. Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon, carried the Jews captive into Iraq

16. Ezekiel preached in Iraq

17. The wise men were from Iraq

18. Peter preached in Iraq

19. The 'Empire of Man' described in Revelation is called Babylon --which was a city in Iraq

And you have probably seen this one: Israel is the nation most often mentioned in the Bible.

But do you know which nation is second?

It is Iraq !

However, that is not the name that is used in the Bible.

The names used in the Bible are Babylon , Land of Shinar , and Mesopotamia ... The word Mesopotamia means between the two rivers, more exactly between the Tigris And Euphrates Rivers ..

The name Iraq means country with deep roots.

Indeed Iraq is a country with deep roots and is a very significant country in the Bible.

No other nation, except Israel , has more history and prophecy associated with it than Iraq

And also, This is something to think about:

Since America is typically represented by an eagle.

Saddam should have read up on his Muslim passages ....

The following verse is from the Koran, (the Islamic Bible)

Koran ( 9:11 ) - For it is written that a son of Arabia would awaken a fearsome Eagle.. The wrath of the Eagle would be felt throughout the lands of Allah and lo, while some of the people trembled in despair still more rejoiced; for the wrath of the Eagle cleansed the lands of Allah; And there was peace.

(Note the verse number!) Hmmmmmmm?!

Pass it on to everyone and pray.

Cotton Country Anglican's View

This is a very good explanation of what is going on in the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth...and across the country.

Cotton Country Anglican

I Cornithians 6:1-7:

1 If any of you has a dispute with another, dare he take it before the ungodly for judgment instead of before the saints?
2 Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if you are to judge the world, are you not competent to judge trivial cases?
3 Do you not know that we will judge angels? How much more the things of this life!
4 Therefore, if you have disputes about such matters, appoint as judges even men of little account in the church![a]
5 I say this to shame you. Is it possible that there is nobody among you wise enough to judge a dispute between believers?
6 But instead, one brother goes to law against another—and this in front of unbelievers!
7 The very fact that you have lawsuits among you means you have been completely defeated already. Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be cheated?
8 Instead, you yourselves cheat and do wrong, and you do this to your brothers.
