Wordless: Verse 25


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. The cross belongs to 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 guide 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.
Thanks for visiting. My most current articles can be seen here.

It's beautiful, but I hope the ACLU doesn't sue them to take it down. Have a great WW. :)

I received these pictures in one of those emails....the kind that travel all over. Sandee I agree...since it is on private property I don't think the ACLU would have a case.

You know they have one of these in Illinois? We travel as a family each year through Illinois and see it. Great pictures, did not know it lights up at night.
