President Bush (then governor of Texas) signed a proclamation in 2000 to make June 10th the official Texas day to honor Jesus (along with many other states who were doing the same thing). Lone Star State inhabitants can celebrate Jesus Day officially. The rest of us displaced Texas citizens will have to celebrate un-officially wherever we may have been banished to. Better yet, we should ALL (Texans and not) celebrate Jesus daily in our lives… because after all, through Jesus comes freedom, peace, joy, forgiveness, salvation, and eternal life. That IS a reason to celebrate if you ask me.
Romans 8:20-21 ~ For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope 21) that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God.Romans 5:1 ~ Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.Psalm 97:11 ~ Light is shed upon the righteous and joy on the upright in heart.
Acts 2:38 ~ Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”
Acts 4:12 ~ Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.John 6:40 ~ For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.
Speaking of displaced Texas citizens and celebrations… I have a very happy praise to offer (to Jesus). My honey got word that we are most likely going to be moving home soon. He was picked for a promotion that would return us to our home state… and all we are waiting on is the signature of his CEO. I hope you will ask Jesus yourself (on our behalf) that He would also offer us relocation expenses and make the paperwork travel like wildfire so that we have official word soon. The sooner I can give 30 days notice to our apartments, the less money we are out… and the quicker we can be back on Texas soil! YEEEEEEEEEEEEHAW.
