Thanks to Valerie Zinger (pun intended?) for providing me a good belly laugh today and I wanted to be sure I passed along this worthy post.....enjoy and thank Valerie for it.... Via Valerie Zinger (House Proud Ottawa-Ontario-Canada): A new pastor was visiting in the homes of his parishioners.
At one house it seemed obvious that someone was at home, but no answer came to his repeated knocks at the door. Therefore, he took out a business card and wrote 'Revelation 3:20' on the back of it and stuck it in the door.
