The Old Paths.....

I liked the old paths,
when Moms were at home.
Dads were at work.
Brothers went into the army.
And sisters got married BEFORE having children!
Crime did not pay;
Hard work did;
And people knew the difference.
Moms could cook;
Dads would work;
Children would behave.
Husbands were loving;
Wives were supportive; A
nd children were polite.
Women wore the jewelry;
And Men wore the pants.
Women looked like ladies;
Men looked like gentlemen;
And children looked decent.
People loved the truth,
And hated a lie;
They came to church to get IN,
Not to get OUT!
Hymns sounded Godly;
Sermons sounded helpful;
Rejoicing sounded normal;
And crying sounded sincere.
Cursing was wicked;
Drugs were for illness;
And divorce was unthinkable.
The flag was honored;
America was beautiful;
And God was welcome!
We read the Bible in public;
Prayed in school;
And preached from house to house
To be called an American was worth dying for;
To be called a Christian was worth living for;
To be called a traitor was a shame!
Preachers preached because they had a message;
And Christians rejoiced because they had the VICTORY!
Preachers preached from the Bible;
Singers sang from the heart;
And sinners turned to the Lord to be SAVED!
A new birth meant a new life;
Salvation meant a changed life;
Following Christ led to eternal life.
Being a preacher meant you proclaimed the word of God;
Being a deacon meant you would serve the Lord;
Being a Christian meant you would live for Jesus;
And being a sinner meant someone was praying for you!
Laws were based on the Bible;
Homes read the Bible;
And churches taught the Bible.
God was worshiped;
Christ was exalted;
And the Holy Spirit was respected..
Church was where you found Christians on the Lord's day,
rather than in the garden, on the creek bank, on the golf course,
Or being entertained somewhere else.

I still like the old paths the best!

Never Forget....
She will be arriving in NY harbor on Nov 1, 2009 and commissioned in the US Navy Nov. 7. If you are planning a trip to NY, you will be able to tour the ship during that week.

Here she is

Here SHE is, the USS New York, made from theWorld Trade Center !

This is from CNN today:
"Strength Forged through SacrificeOctober 13, 2009 - 12:17 PM by: Maggie Lineback
The USS New York is, in some ways, heading home, even though this is its maiden voyage.
The Navy's latest amphibious ship was built in Avondale, just outside New Orleans, by shipbuilders who continued working through Hurricane Katrina to get the job done. They knew their mission was special. The ship contains seven and a half tons of steel recovered from the World Trade Center after 9-11. It's at the leading edge of the ship.
This morning, people lined the Mississippi River here in New Orleans, hoping to get a glimpse of the USS New York. She left Avondale for New York to be commissioned November 7th. Along the way, she'll stop in Norfolk to pick up Marines. The USS New York will be in New York for ten days and they're expecting about one hundred thousand people to come aboard and visit while the ship is open to the public. More information on how to visit is at
Some of the people in the crowd this morning were men who built this ship. The head of Northrop Grumman's shipbuilding operations told us he got a chill every time he stepped on board. He said while they've worked on ships before, everyone understands the importance of the USS New York. They were sad to see her go, but happy to finally see her headed out to sea.
The weather matched the mood in New Orleans. When the ship came by our liveshot spot in New Orleans, it was eerie. A fog had settled in across the river and the USS New York looked like some kind of ghost ship."

"The ship's motto is: "Strength forged through sacrifice. Never forget"
