MY FRIEND SENT THIS TO ME AND IT REALLY TOUCHED MY HEART AND WANTED TO SHARE IT WITH ALL MY FRIENDS. I HOPE YOU ENJOY IT AS MUCH AS I DID. GOD BLESS

THE BIGGEST CROSS YOU WILL EVER SEE. The Atheists and American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) will Not like this .



This is truly an amazing sight, not only is it beautiful spiritually, it is also an engineering feat .

This is awesome . . .

IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE

On a lonely stretch of highway just outside of
Groom, Texas (near Pampa) stands a 19 story
tall cross that can be seen for miles from any
direction. The arm spans are 110 feet across.
It is constructed of a welded steel framework
covered with steel sheeting.

This cross is the result of the efforts of Steve
Thomas and family of Pampa, Texas. It took
250 welders eight months to complete, and
weighs 1,250 tons. It stands alone,
unsupported by guy wires, and can withstand
winds of 140 miles per hour.

Steve Thomas' son, Zack Thomas, is an All-
Pro middle linebacker for the Miami Dolphins.



The cross is truly an awsome sight to behold.
It is a dedication to the love and sacrifice of
Jesus.

It is a spectacular sight at night, and is open
for viewing 24 hours per day, seven days a
week,and the site is truck and RV accessible.

It is anticipated that 10 million people a year
will pass by the cross and a thousand a day will
stop.


On a small hill facing the cross there are
three bronze cross statues depicting the
crucifixion of Jesus between two thieves.

The base of the cross is surrounded by life-
sized bronze statues of Jesus depicting twelve
stations of Jesus carrying the cross to Calvary.
