Why not encourage the leaders in your church today with a phone call or e mail. Let them know you appreciate them. Then send them a link to Calvinistic Cartoons. They will either thank you or never speak to you again.


  1. Too funny.

    I hope you and your family are doing well.

  2. Thanks John, we are swimmingly...if you like swimming in hot sand! All kidding aside, we both consider this a most exciting chapter of our lives. Thank God for Skype, because the hardest part of this move was leaving family, sons and daughters, and our precious grandchildren. Out container with some of our belongings will be here in a couple of days. Still pray that I will be able to purchase a monitor for my computer. Selah, everybody. I hope to post some photos soon.

  3. Good to see you again! Thanks again for the encouragement and prayers - we are praying for you!

  4. This is my first comment left here. I usually just do a hit and run. It is too easy to remember that our pastors and other Christian leaders are just as human as we are. Thanks for the reminder.

  5. Eddie are you moving back to Texas?
