A word about the MandoMutt Beyond Beast award. As many of our frequent visitors know, our very best instruments may be awarded as a Beyond Beast. You may wonder, just how do we determine a Beyond Beast. We actually have a 30 point number system and six categories, with five being the highest and one being the lowest score in each category. An instrument must score a 28 out 30, or better to be recognized as a Beyond Beast. The six categories are: 1) Tone 2) Volume 3) Fit and Finish 4) Set up and Playability 5) Appointments (bling?) 6) Cosmetic Condition (wear and tear)

Chatter Box

I was looking through the books of Matthew and John to refresh myself of the Easter story and what Jesus did for all of mankind. It always amazes me as to exactly what He went through for us, in order for all of mankind to have the opportunity for eternal life with Him in heaven. Jesus was betrayed by one of His own, He endured lies, He was mocked. Jesus was humiliated and beaten beyond recognition. He was forced to carry His own cross, the same rugged cross that He would then be crucified on. In the end, Jesus was hung there on that tree at Golgotha and He was left there to die a slow and excruciating death.

After the death of Jesus, His body was taken by Joseph of Arimathaea to the sepulchre and laid to rest and a great stone was placed over the mouth of the sepulchre by the chief priests and Pharisees after they reminded Pilate in Matthew 27:63 Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said , while he was yet alive, After three days I will rise again. They were afraid that Jesus’ disciples would come and remove the body and tell the people that Jesus had indeed risen from the dead.  Matthew 27:65-66 Pilate said unto them, Ye have a watch: go your way, make it as sure as you can. So they went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone, and setting a watch.

And yet, after three days, the stone had been rolled away and Jesus’ body was no longer there. Jesus later appeared to Mary Magdalene and the disciples and spoke to them. In John chapter 20, Jesus spoke to Thomas, the doubter, and after convincing Thomas, in John 20:29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen and yet they believed.

Finally, John tells us in John20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name. Are you a believer? Will you spend eternity with the One who died on the ol’ rugged cross for you?

Thought for the day; Actually, the question of the day. Do you have the RFD channel on your cable or satellite TV? I seldom watch TV, but I do love some of the programs on RFDTV, particularly the Joey and Rory show and the Marty Stuart Show. Check it out.
