What Does this Mean?

By handlerstudio  
Years ago, in my first marriage, my (not yet) wife and I were driving through Danville Virginia, along the Dan River to her family's Christmas in North Carolina, and we saw this body shop, with this sign. I had no idea then what it means, and still no idea. Nor did I have film in my camera, so we had to come back the same way on the way home so I could get this photo. One of not too many of my many film images that I have scanned.

Praise God even though your car needs repair? Or even though the house seems to be sinking.
Fun photo either way.

May be a car repairing shop. Mainly work out post accident vehicles. The other poster for those who still survive to get repair job done,May "praise God anyhow"

Yeah it's a car body repair shop ie....panel beater and he is obviously religious and the sign says praise God anyway you see fit...maybe I am too logical in my thinking...thanks for sharing

"At all times, and in all places" - I'm with Cookie Monster on this - though Colleen also has a point.

The music director at church says that God hears the praise rather than the wrong notes... Though the vicar hears both, I think.

Think the sign is there for when you get the bill Peter.

Well, all of the above is probably correct, but having had some experience with Va. and Western NC-- I rather think it is part of their dialect--One needs a translator at times.....
