Welcome !! to the Lamb's Cote !


   Poetry, short-stories, images, art, quotes, links,...,these things
(and more) are what I want to share with the world on my web
pages,( you can view my other pages from the links near the
bottom of this page) these things have touched me in one way 
or another, at one time or another.

   My name is Alan Confer, I am a Christian, a husband, a father,
a laborer, and a thinker (or perhaps more accurately, a dreamer). 
In shorter words I am a human-being, a child of my God.

   Please take a few minutes to browse through my little corner 
of the Web, perhaps you can find some little thing to make the 
moment worth spending. Please keep in mind that I am an 
"Orange Cone" on the information super-highway, therefore, my 
pages are quite simple, but this is all very new to me , and I 
promise to try to improve and expand them in the near future.

   And PLEASE take a moment to drop a message in my
guestbook, or E-mail me from the bottom of this page. I would
very much enjoy hearing from everyone ! But, Please, no junk
mail .

   I hope you can recognize the thread of Faith that runs
through these pages, as it runs through my life, in good times
and the less than good ones.

                                                   Yours Faithfully in Christ:
                                                            Alan Confer

                                                                                             update


P.S. By the way, a lamb's cote is a small shed used to shelter a lamb,
 this is one way I view my relationship with Jesus Christ, Iam His Lamb,
he is my Cote.


Little Things that Stick with Me.

  In this section you'll find Words of Wisdom,etc..For the most part

of Jotting things down on any little piece of paper that is at hand.)

  Only Christ is Worth Dying for...and only in Him have all People a

  reason to Live!!!

  I believe in the Sun, even if it does not shine.
  I believe in Love, even if I do not feel it.
  I believe in GOD, even if I do not see Him.

                                         --Grafitti from the
                                            Jewish Ghetto of Warsaw

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  ...So long as these are kept alive,
       Nation and People will survive.
  God keep them ,always, everywhere--
       The Home, the Heart, the Place of Prayer !!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  I sought my Soul,
    but my Soul I could not see.

  I sought my God,
    but my God eluded me.

  I sought my "Brother",
    and I found all three.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  You were bought at a great price,
    and that which has cost God so Much,
      must not be cheap to us !

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  The "Law" required what it could not give.

  "Grace" gives that which it requires.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.

  He came to pay a debt he did not owe,

  because we owed a debt we could not pay.

  The Cross of Christ grew roots, and is a tree of Lasting Life!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  By following Jesus Christ, man in the world of today can truly

 humanly live, act, suffer, and die: in happiness and unhappiness,
 
 life and death, sustained by God and helpful to men.
                                                      - Hans Kung

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  Peter was a fisher-boy helping with the haul;
  Pilate was a shave-tail leading troops in Gaul
  Judas was as innocent as any child could be.
  The wood that made the Crucifix was still a living tree;
  Unminted was the silver that made a traitor's pay;
  and none had yet commercialized the Spirit of THE DAY.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  The Christian believes, not in the Bible, 
          but in Him whom it attests;

  the Christian believes, not in tradition, 
          but in Him whom it transmits;

  the Christian believes, not in the Church, 
          but in Him whom it proclaims.
                                        - Hans Kung

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Over every mountain is a path that can't be seen from
          the Valley.

 Search for Truth is Search for God.
 God "IS" because Truth "IS" .
                                               - M.K. Gandhi
