Hello Blogging Friends ,
I am very late posting this week. I was out of town Monday and the weekend .One of the places I visited was the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte , NC. It is a very nice place . It is an inspirational tour of Billy's life .I would recommend it to everyone ;Admission is free!
It also has on the grounds, the Homeplace of Rev. Graham
Pic of Billy Graham homeplace from their website .I did not take one with a full view .
The Library is in the Barn, I Love the cross on the Barn!
Tour starts with Bessie the talking cow,she tells of Billy's early life on the farm .
Below are scenes from museum tour.

Ruth Graham was born and raised in China,.her parents were Missionaries. When asked "Who was the greatest Christian he ever knew ?", Billy's answer was Ruth,My wife.
"The Cross", 32 foot mural painted by the late artist Thomas Kinkade. It is spectacular!
The bridge of crosses you enter through to view the "The Cross" mural.
Bronze statue" The Sower & the Soils" by artist Tom White.
The Graham Brothers Dairy Bar was cool!
Next pics are of Ruth's resting place in the Prayer Garden.
The Chinese Character on Ruth's tombstone means Righteousness.
I love her epitaph! She saw it at the end of construction on a highway and thought it perfect for a epitaph .
As Christians , we are works in progress, but when we finally join Jesus in Heaven , it will be the end of our Construction and He is very patience with us !
I will leave you with a quote from Billy and a Bible verse.
"God proved His Love on the Cross. When Christ hung, and bled, and died, it was God saying to the World, "I Love You." "
"While being found in form of a man , He (Jesus) humbled himself , and became obedient unto death,even the death of the cross." Gal.2:8
