I found jesus at a garage sale


I went to a garage sale yesterday. Someone bought a church building and they are going to live in it, so they wanted to get rid of a bunch of junk. A guy in the church called me and told me about it, and thought maybe I could find some useful stuff for our church there. Uh... the only thing I found that had any value to me were these three pictures of Jesus. They were asking $5 apiece, and I finagled them down to $8 for all three (there was a sign posted that they would consider any offer for any item, so... hey).

I think these are splendid. I will put them in the basement with the other artwork we have hanging around. In fact, if anyone knows of any other old pictures of Jesus, please let me know. I think it would be cool to amass a bunch of them and hang them all over.

A friend of mine showed me this wall at a retirement home in Warren, Indiana that is filled with different pictures of Jesus. I forget now how many there are - it seems like 120-something. It is awesome. I tried to find some information about it on the interwebs, but there doesn't appear to be anything.

Anyway, I'm just glad I found Jesus yesterday. I would like to find more of him. He's a cool dude, don'tcha know.
