What a great idea.
:iagree: And windows in your garage door may let in light, but sure are a good way to see if your vehicle is there or you are gone. Not a fan of them in the door.
Yep, but either blinds or a frosted window film takes care of that pretty easily.

I think it is going to continue to get worse because that is what my God says is going to happen in His Word. I do NOT say that to disrespect either JP171 or DevilDawg, both of whose explanations are certainly applicable at the surface level. But we have banished God from the classroom, and He is a gentleman and will stay away until invited back. We have banished God from the halls of Government.....I am NOT saying that we should be a theocracy, but that there was a time when people in gov't sought His guidance as well as His approval.....and God is a gentleman and will stay away from the halls of gov't until invited back.

I believe that what we are observing is this:
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world,[g] in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. 21 For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.

24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.

26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.

28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. 29 They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Though they know God's righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.

Romans 1:18-32
I understand that some will dispute this, or take offense at it. I understand that not everybody on this board is a Christian, or even religious. That is certainly your right to strongly disagree with my words, and I will defend your right to dispute them with my life. But this is how I see it. I think that, having observed our collective insistence on sinful behaviors and desires, God has given this country over to dishonorable passions. What we are observing is the result of that, and it is NOT going to change for the better until we collectively return to Him.

This is just my opinion. YMMV
Amen brother.

It is written, but many will not read the word, and even of those whom do, some will still not understand. Though we may be rejected for saying our Lords name in public, I would rather praise the Lord my God.

Why don't we all start preaching whatever it is we feel compelled to preach about, with one caveat: Do it somewhere other than on this forum.

This is GUN congregation.

Can I get an AMEN?

When I was a kid, the only garage door opener my parents had was me. :lol:

After the garage got broken into, and a chainsaw stolen, my parents secured the garage doors better. My mother made curtains for the garage door windows. They were installed with cafe rods at the top & bottom so they could never allow a "peek" inside. You could still break the window, reach in and release the lock, so my father took one more step.

In each door track, he drilled a hole right above one roller (when the door was closed), and installed a slide bolt so that it would go through the hole and block the roller.

It made more work for the garage door opener (me) but it was a lot more secure.
