My wife and I traveled through Punxsutawney, PA, during our summer vacation last year. All over this town, were statues, like the one above. We enjoyed lunch at “Punxy Phil’s”. We enjoyed our trip. It was in this area where I used to preach the Gospel – at the Bolivar Church of Christ. By the way, here is the today’s news from Punxsutawney, just in case you missed it:
Phil Says Spring is Right Around the Corner!
Phil’s official forecast as read 2/2/07 at 7:28 a.m. at Gobbler’s Knob:
El Nino has caused high winds, heavy snow, ice and freezing temperatures in the west.
Here in the East with much mild winter weather we have been blessed.
Global warming has caused a great debate. This mild winter makes it seem just great.
On this Groundhog Day we think of one thing. Will we have winter or will we have spring?
On Gobbler’s Knob I see no shadow today. I predict that early spring is on the way.
Weather always reminds me of the promise from the days of Noah. God promised that He would never flood the earth again in the manner that He did then. He also made another promise that many Christians forget about.
“While the earth remains, Seedtime and harvest, And cold and heat, And summer and winter, And day and night Shall not cease.” (Genesis 6:22) – What does that do with “Global Warming”? Springtime is coming . . . and soon, according to Phil! Sitting here at 12 degrees above zero . . . I am with Phil!
