CROSS - This is so awesome!!

This is really amazing!
clipped from


On a lonely
stretch of highway just outside of
Groom, Texas (near Pampa) stands a 19 story
tall cross that can be seen for miles from any
direction. The arm spans are 110 feet across.
It is constructed of a welded steel framework

covered with steel sheeting.

This cross is the result of the efforts of Steve
Thomas and family of Pampa, Texas. It took
250 welders eight months to complete, and
weighs 1,250 tons. It stands alone,
unsupported by guy wires, and can withstand
winds of 140 miles per hour.

The cross is truly an
awsome sight to behold.
It is a dedication to the love and sacrifice of

On a small hill facing
the cross there are
three bronze cross statues depicting the

crucifixion of Jesus between two thieves.

The base of the cross is surrounded by life-
sized bronze statues of Jesus depicting twelve
stations of Jesus carrying the cross to Calvary.
