Jesus Loves the little truckers....

.....all the truckers of the World
Red and Yellow Black and white
All are precious in his sight
Jesus loves the little truckers of the world!

On my drive to the desert last friday I happened to see this truck ahead of me. So, as ANYONE would do on the freeway, I leaned out the window while driving, doing 70mph, with my cell phone attempting to take these pictures. I risked my life for you! But more importantly I risked my iphone for you. What if I had, gulp, dropped it? I think the results were worth it. You know those reporters on the war front? I'm like that.



Now, I don't know if it's the 'trucker vibe' in general, but that quote from Jesus seems almost threatening. "I'll be back (schwarteneger anyone?) to GET YOU" eeek!

I really really tried to get a good look at the driver. I couldn't even see him. That guy was driving FAST. Like, speeding. I don't think jesus would approve of that.

Do you think that at the Flying J's truck stop that the other truckers snicker at him? You think he gets beat up a lot? Does this guy CHOOSE this truck? Or did he just get a job as a trucker and they handed him the keys, and he walks over and is all "oh MAN!"

Maybe my favorite thing is the 'dove' mud flaps. Such a refreshing sight from the usual....



(hmmmm, lesbian trucker??)



Nice. Classy.

Turns OUT there is an entire world of Christian truckers out there.

(oh how I wish I'd seen THIS truck!)


And there are actual trucker ministries



I mean, I suppose, why not?

And I wonder how well this is received at the drive-in starbucks on the Vegas route?


I'm not judging here, I mean, Truckers need their faith too. But still, I wanna see them at the Flying J's. Just to see. Do you think this whole thing will catch on? And then we'll have catholic Truckers, and Mormon truckers and Baptist truckers who get in fights at the Flying J's?

hmmmm. I wonder......

Jesus Loves me this I know
For the truckers tell me so.
Little truckers to Him belong.
They are wheelin' but He is strong.

...........

Aaaaaa-mazing Grace, How sweet the sound
That Saved a speeder like meeeeee.
I once was lost (on route 66) But now I'm found.
Was drivin', but now I seeeeeee.

Why do them truckers love them beavers so much? Do truck stops sell beavers? Does Jesus love beavers too? Oh, so many questions...

I saw a giant truck parked at our mall that said something about Jesus saving us. We don't see a lot of that kind of stuff in Utah.

Love the Jesus.

This is interesting, don't see this type of thing much in Cali. Mostly I see the mudflap girls and maybe those oversold Calvin peeing on something decals!

I love how you've decorated your blog. It's a walk down memory lane. We must be close to the same age. Sigmund and the Seamonster is my cousin.

Great Blog! Check out this new Christian band that just released their first album. From what I heard on the samples site, they sound really good.

Introducing the new Christian National Anthem: Guns & Jesus.

Please pass on this info to all.
