Do You Have a BC

With spring time comes the dream of camping. I would like to take a poll. You will find the question at the bottom of the article. Enjoy your camping experience.

The story is told of a lady who was rather old-fashioned, always quite delicate and elegant, especially in her language.

She and her husband were planning a week’s vacation in Florida, so she wrote to a particular campground asking for a reservation.

She wanted to make sure the campground was fully equipped, but didn’t quite know how to ask about the toilet facilities. She just couldn’t bring herself to write the word “toilet” in her letter.

After much deliberation, she finally came up with the old-fashioned term BATHROOM COMMODE. But when she wrote that down, she still thought she was being too forward. So she started all over again and rewrote the entire letter referring to the bathroom commode merely as the BC. “Does the campground have it’s own BC?” is what she actually wrote.

Well, the campground owner wasn’t old-fashioned at all, and when he got the letter, he just couldn’t figure out what the woman was talking about. That BC business really stumped him.

After worrying about it for awhile, he showed the letter to several campers, but they couldn’t imagine what the lady meant either. So the campground owner, finally coming to the conclusion that the lady must be asking about he local Baptist Church, sat down and wrote the following reply:

Dear Madam:

I regret very much the delay in answering your letter, but I now take pleasure in informing you that a BC is located nine miles north of the campground and is capable of seating 250 people at one time.

I admit it is quite a distance away, if you are in the habit of going regularly, but no doubt you will be pleased to know that a great number of people take their lunches along and make a day of it.

They usually arrive early and stay late. It is such a beautiful facility and the acoustics are marvelous. Even the normal delivery sounds can be heard.

The last time my wife and I went was six years ago, and it was so crowded we had to stand up the whole time we were there. It may interest you to know that right now a supper is planned to raise money to buy more seats.

I would like to say it pains me very much not to be able to go more regularly, but it surely is no lack of desire on my part. As we grow old, it seems to be more of an effort, particularly in cold weather.

If you do decide to come down to our campground, perhaps I could go with you the first time you go, sit with you, and introduce you to all the other folks.

Remember, this is a friendly community.

Sincerely, Campground Owner

My question is this: Does the campground you go to have a BC?

Even Though It Is Not Enjoyable


“Then he said to them all: ‘Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.'” – Luke 9:23 The Holy Bible, The New International Version.

When we become Christians that means we accept Christ as our King. Because Christ belongs in the spiritual realm and the world belongs to the physical world, because Christ dedicates Himself to others we must follow His lead and dedicate ourselves to serving Him by serving others where He directs us to.

That is contrary to the world which serves themselves.

This means we are in a constant battle with the world (including ourselves at times when we want to serve self instead of Christ . The cross was a place of torture and intended shame. That is what we can expect from those walking the Highway to Hell. They will daily mock us and try to shame us. They will do everything they can to make our lives miserable. This will be a daily experience.

Even though it is not enjoyable, we should thank them for this treatment. Because, the more they make us suffer, the more they drive us into Jesus’ loving arms.

Torture me as you may, you will not destroy me but make me an ever stronger servant of my loving King Jesus. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immeka (Judges 6:12 The LORD Is with You ) for the tormentors in my life because they draw me ever closer to You which is the greatest blessing of all. I esteem You in the name of He with whom I love to commune with every day, Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with drawing from the spring of living waters of comfort, strength and encouragement to extinguish the fiery arrows of the wicked, Jesus Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah
