The Creation of West Virginia
Advertisements [?]
Once upon a time in the Kingdom of Heaven, God was missing

for six days. Eventually, Michael the Archangel found Him, resting on

the seventh day. He inquired of God, "Where have You been?"



God sighed a deep sigh of satisfaction and proudly pointed

downwards through the clouds, "Look Michael, look what I've made!"



Archangel Michael looked puzzled and said, "What is it?"



"It's a planet," replied God, and I've put life on it. I'm

going to call it Earth, and it's going to be a great place of balance."



"Balance?" inquired Michael, still confused.



God explained, pointing to different parts of Earth, "For

example, northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and

wealth, while southern Europe is going to be poor; the Middle East over

there will be a hot spot. And over there I've placed a continent of

white people, while over here is a continent of black people."



God continued, pointing to different countries. "This one

will be extremely hot and arid while this one will be very cold and

covered in ice."



The Archangel, impressed by God's work, then pointed to a

large landmass and said, "What's that one?"



"Ah," said God. "That's West Virginia, the most glorious place

on earth. There are beautiful lakes, rivers, sunsets and rolling
hills.

The people from West Virginia are going to be modest, intelligent and

humorous and they are going to be found traveling the world. They will
be

extremely sociable, hard working and high achieving, and they will be

known throughout the world as diplomats and carriers of peace."



Michael gasped in wonder and admiration but then proclaimed,

"What about balance, God? You said there would be balance!"



God replied wisely, "Wait until you see the idiots I'm

putting around them in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Kentucky ,Virginia &

Tennessee."

That's the Gospel!!!!!!!!!
