Pardoning Turkeys

Well, the President of the United States; let's see, he's got wars to manage, wild economy to handle. But you know what? Every Thanksgiving he steps up to one of the most decisive responsibilities of his office. He pardons a turkey; actually, two turkeys. And this is really serious business. Actually they even have a backup turkey (this is the truth) just in case Turkey #1 isn't able to serve as, well what one writer called the ungobbled gobbler.

Of course, these lucky birds have names. One year "Biscuit" and "Gravy" escaped the ax. Yeah. And then there was "Marshmallow" and "Yam." "Flyer" and "Fryer," that was one year. "May" and "Flower," and last year, "Apple" and "Cider."

Well, after their Summit with the President, the turkeys are sent to Disneyland, and they didn't even win the Super Bowl. They used to be sent to (this is the truth), Frying Pan Park in Virginia. I couldn't make that up. Turkey #1 gets to ride with The Mouse as the Honorary Grand Marshal of Disneyland's Thanksgiving Day Parade. I'm thinkin' - only in America.

I pray that this day you would reach out and accept the blood-bought pardon of Jesus Christ. We've set up our website to help you know exactly how to begin that relationship with Him. Go to YoursForLife.net, would you today?

This is the day you can accept your pardon that came at an incredibly high price.
