YouTube Video  Part 1  Part 2   (Footage of what the cross meant to Cal, and the erecting of the cross.)

Cal Aldrink was high in the air painting his flagpole when the base gave away and he fell.  Amazingly, it should have killed him according to the doctor's opinion, but he escaped the tragic fall -- being paralyzed from his upper chest down. 

After surgery, healing and rehab, it was in his heart to put a big white cross on his property overlooking the Grand River, next to Grand Valley State University (near Allendale, Michigan), for the glory of the Lord. 

You can see the cross from M-45 bridge if you look way down the river. When you boat along that stretch of property, now you will know how the cross came about. 

It seems that God speaks to certain people in very special ways when they float by the cross on the Grand River.


Dear Reader - are you at peace with God?  If not, you can be.  Do you know what awaits you when you die?  You can have the assurance from the Holy Spirit that heaven will be your home, if you would like to be certain.  Either Jesus Christ died for yours sins, or He didn't (He did!).  Are you prepared to stand before God on the Judgment Day and tell Him that you didn't need the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to cover your sins?  We plead with you ... please don't make such a tragic mistake.

To be at peace with God; to make certain heaven will be your home for eternity; to make certain that you are in right-standing with God right now ... please click here to help understand the importance of being reconciled to God.  What you do about being reconciled to God will determine where you will spend eternity, precious one.  Your decision to be reconciled to God is the most important decision you'll ever make in this life.
