Same Kind of Different As Me

 Might be some GOOD stuff here…

Watch the trailer HERE.

This New York bestseller became a movie and it might very well be a GOOD one!

It begins outside a burning plantation hut in Louisiana… and an East Texas honky-tonk… and, without a doubt, in the heart of God. It unfolds in a Hollywood hacienda… an upscale New York Gallery… a downtown dumpster… a Texas ranch. Gritty with pain and betrayal and brutality, it also shines with an unexpected, life-changing love.

What the stars had to say about it…

“I’m honored to share in telling Debbie’s story and to be part of this beautiful effort to perpetuate the legacy of her work.”

—RENÉE ZELLWEGER, ACTRESS

“It’s a rare opportunity for an actor to be blessed with a role so soulful. To embody Denver’s spirit was at once an emotional challenge and an extreme privilege, learning the story of a man who came from so little and gave so much.”

—DJIMON HOUNSOU, ACTOR

“Working with an excellent cast and crew to help tell the story of Ron’s challenging personal journey was a creative joy.”

—GREG KINNEAR, ACTOR

We will update this if we’ve got something good to report, stay tuned!

Texas State Railroad… it’s a GOOD thing!

Posted on November 9, 2016 by in Good Things

Talk about a trip that is really worth your money, we found it!

The Pineywoods Excursion is one heck of a train ride.

You get 3 full hours of a train ride and the opportunity to bring a picnic lunch and eat it at a real train depot.

WATCH THIS… Pineywoods Video

That’s the historic early 1900’s steam engine that hooks up to about 6 cars and takes you off on a grand adventure through the woods from Rusk to Palestine Texas. All of the train rides offer various levels of comfort at various prices, but the open air we took was absolutely great. If the weather is agreeable (and it was for us), the open air car is fabulous! 

The wind in your face, the train whistle blowing at every crossing and the beautiful countryside made for a great look back in time and a relaxing way to spend an afternoon. (Beware of one thing though… many children cry in the beginning.) I couldn’t imagine being cooped up with them inside the train, but the train is loud enough to make it bearable outside and after a bit – they all love it!

Everyone from newborn children to great grandparents ride these trains.

Many want to take pictures, some want to ride a train like they did when they were young and others want their grandkids to have the experience they had as children. Truly a GOOD time is had by all who make the trip. These trips run from March through the first week in November every year. And although the Pineywoods Excursions are over again for this year, the Polar Express is just starting up. You can see what tickets are available by CLICKING HERE.

Take a look at this cute video for it…

 

The Polar Express runs from November 18th to December 23rd.

Prices range from $20-$109.

Book tickets online at the link above or by phone at 877-726-7245.

Editor’s note: This is a tourist trap.

It’s crowded, the line to the restroom is long and many people move slowly. It is not for those who don’t have patience with children, people with disabilities or mature adults. These trains are still running today because of the income made from selling a lot of tickets, gift shop items, etc.

It is what it is and we were very grateful to be able to have this experience, but it’s not for everyone. They have to keep the lights on somehow…

If you have anyone in your family that loves trains – this would be a great gift idea!

Little White Crosses USA

Posted on November 9, 2016 by in Good Things

The Little White Crosses are now being made in Santa Fe…

The Santa Fe Good News Magazine is accepting the “relay CROSS” from Mr. Johnson to begin building them right here in our town. He has graciously given us another load of his crosses until we can try to keep up with the demand ourselves. We are committing to one year of “cross building” just like the Johnson’s did.

We want to do this in order to see to it that everyone in Santa Fe and the surrounding areas that wants a cross in their yard, can have one – FREE of charge. Christ gave us a great gift and we want to share it with anyone who wants it by way of this Little White Cross movement.

We have 2 PICK UP locations that we will try to keep stocked…

REMAX REALTY located at 13109 Hwy 6, courtesy of Monica Rojas and GALCO HARDWARE STORE located at 12920 FM 1764, courtesy of  Scott and Cecilia Eckenrode, Monica’s parents. 

They are FREE to anyone who wants to quietly share their belief with the world.

If you would like to be involved in this movement in any way – please contact us and we will put you on the list of people wanting to support this silent protest for change in the direction of America in a quiet Godly way.

We will accept donations because we believe God will send them our way, but we would prefer supplies, labor, prayers and shares – rather than money, especially checks. This is only because we are not a 501c nor do we want to become one for a year and because we have more than enough red tape trying to run this business.

If you would like to find out more about this movement, you can click the links and watch a video below.

In the beginning… it started in support of a cross at the Port Neches park that an Atheist Group, Freedom From Religion, wanted removed because it was on city property. They are going all over the country doing this… but what has happened is unbelievable and amazing. This has become a movement by Gods people, standing up for the Lord and for our right as Christians, by displaying a little white cross in front of every Christian home that wants one. As Christians we know what the cross stands for. This is something God is doing and He has made it possible for this to happen.

They are still being offered in Port Neches until their supply is depleted…

If you would like some crosses for your friends and family, you can pick them up at 3161 Nall St  in Port Neches, Texas. Just pull up and take as many as you would like… they are FREE. We also leave them at Nicks Grocery and Judice’s in Port Arthur and the Big Store in Crystal Beach right now.

These crosses are in around 40 states and in two other countries spreading the love of Jesus. People in other states have started making them after seeing what has happened here. If you would like to join our group on Facebook CLICK HERE. Please pray for this movement and when some one asks you about the crosses, please share the Good News of Jesus Christ with them.

Editor’s Note: Mr. Johnson and his family have made the crosses for a year and believe that they are going to pass them on now, but you just never know what God may require of people who are obedient. They have graciously set us up to build for a year and it is our intention to pass it on to a neighboring town in a year as well.

“We believe the nation is going in the wrong direction,” said Mr. Trimmer, 82. “We seem to be losing more things that the country was founded on, good Christian principles.

Worldwide GOOD stuff we’ve found…

Posted on September 21, 2016 by in Good Things, Worldwide GOOD News

Christmas of Many Colors

Last December, just in time for Christmas, the amazing Dolly Parton delighted viewers and critics alike with her deeDollyply heartwarming tale drawn straight from her inspiring real life and music. In an all-new holiday sequel, the Partons, a family of humble means living in the mountains of Tennessee, face a devastating event that challenges their will. But when they experience a bewildering Christmas miracle, the Partons are drawn closer together than ever – with deepened faith and love for one another.

It is scheduled to be a two-hour NBC movie event, stay tuned for details.

The original movie is a GOOD family Christmas movie starring Jennifer Nettles (Sugarland) as Parton’s mother, Avie Lee Parton; Ricky Schroder (NYPD Blue, 24) as Dolly’s father, Lee Parton; Gerald McRaney (Longmire, Deadwood, House of Cards) as Grandpa Jake Owens; and the young Alyvia Alyn Lind as 9-year-old Dolly. If you missed it – you missed a great opportunity to enjoy some quality television.

See the trailer for the original movie below and it may be purchased on DVD now at the link below.

 

You can order your copy HERE.

To Joey, with love…

Posted on August 11, 2016 by in Good Things, Worldwide GOOD News

For one SPECIAL night we will be afforded the opportunity to see this woman live on screen to inspire us once more.

Husband-and-wife singing duo Joey+Rory wanted more to life … so they chose less. In preparation for the birth of their child, the couple simplified their lives by putting their music career aside and staying at home, planting roots deep in the soil of their small farm, and the community they loved.

They believed God would give them a great story … and He did.Joey

In select theaters Tuesday, September 20—for one special night only—experience the incredible true story of Joey and Rory Feek in the poignant new film TO JOEY, WITH LOVE. Intimately filmed by the couple over two and a half years, the movie documents the stirring journey of the 2010 Academy of Country Music Top New Vocal Duo.

TO JOEY, WITH LOVE takes moviegoers from the birth of their daughter Indiana, born with Down Syndrome, through Joey’s struggle with and ultimate surrender to cancer—all amidst their never-ending hope in something far greater. God gave Joey+Rory a love story for the ages, one that is sure to inspire hope and faith in all who experience it.

Order your TICKETS HERE.
