In the year
2013, the Lord came unto Noah, Who was now living in
America and said:
the earth has become wicked and over-populated, and I
see the end of all flesh before me."
another Ark and save 2 of every living thing along with
a few good humans."
He gave Noah
the blueprints, saying:
"You have 6
months to build the Ark before I will start the unending
rain for 40 days and 40 nights."
later, the Lord looked down and saw Noah weeping in his
yard - but no Ark. "Noah!" He roared, "I'm about to
start the rain! Where is the Ark?"
Lord," begged Noah, "but things have changed."
"I needed a
arguing with the Boat Inspector about the need for a
homeowners association claims that I've violated the
neighborhood by-laws by building the Ark in my back yard
and exceeding the height limitations. We had to go to
the local Planning Committee for a decision."
City Council and the Electricity Company demanded a shed
load of money for the future costs of moving power lines
and other overhead obstructions, to clear the passage
for the Ark's move to the sea. I told them that the sea
would be coming to us, but they would hear none of it."
wood was another problem. There's a ban on cutting local
trees in order to save the Greater Spotted Barn Owl."
"I tried to
convince the environmentalists that I needed the wood to
save the owls - but no go!"
started gathering the animals, PETA took me to court.
They insisted that I was confining wild animals against
their will. They argued the accommodations were too
restrictive and it was cruel and inhumane to put so many
animals in a confined space."
Environmental Protection Agency ruled that I couldn't
build the Ark until they'd conducted an environmental
impact study on Your proposed flood."

unions say I can't use my sons. They insist I have to
hire only union workers with ark-building experience."
matters worse, the IRS seized all my assets, claiming
I'm trying to leave the country illegally with
me, Lord, but it would take at least 10 years for me to
finish this ark."
the skies cleared, the sun began to shine and a rainbow
stretched across the sky."
up in wonder and asked, "You mean you're not going to

the Lord. “The Government beat me to it."
We would already be in front of
heaven's pearly gates,
If all Christian travel was
smooth, straight, and narrow.
Many sharp curves, cross roads,
and stumbling stones,
An honorable Christian does find
and learns to endure.
Jesus left us a superior map and
signs have been posted!
Christians will only bundle one
durable traveling valise,
A bible for directions, a family
for love, a cross to carry,
Friends for encouragement, prayers
for spiritual support,
And a resilient satchel filled
with soothing heart and soul.
Not one of God's children will
ever have to travel alone!
Follow road signs, look at His
map, detours might occur,
Our Heavenly Father has already
laid out your life's path.
Strive to overcome twisted turns,
bumps, and rough roads,
Gaze towards sunshine and moon’s
glow to see Sweet Jesus.
Rainbows of radiance will show
bridge-ways of eternal love!
