New Cover Photo

22 05 2012

So I’ve put a new cover photo up for this blog that I think captures the purpose of my blog well. We had some shots done of our family (by Katy Hersey, and I liked the idea of showing our feet in action. My boy is running, one of my girls is dancing, my other girl’s feet are in the air and my wife and I are just enjoying the moment. Family life is never boring, always active and a wonder to behold. I hope you like the new picture!

Foreign Policy: Invisible Children responds « Invisible Children Blog.

You may have heard of Invisible Children or #kony2012 or Jason Russell by now. Before quickly blowing them off or becoming cynical to yet another crisis in the world consider what you have done to demonstrate God’s justice in the world.

Show compassion

Seek justice

Serve people

Stand up for the least of these.

Do these things even when it seems hopeless or when you’re not sure how to accomplish it. Sometimes you just have to try even when your strategy isn’t ironed out yet. The linked article discusses some of the work IC is up to and addresses some of the criticism.

Lung transplantation – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

I have a cousin. Her name is Tara. She is 18. She has Cystic Fibrosis. Her lungs have failed her. She is right now awaiting a double-lung transplant. These kinds of things bring us back to what really matters. Family, reconciliation, friends, faith, wisdom, hope. Praying for you, Tara, and thanking God for you.

2011 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,100 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 3 trips to carry that many people.

Student Parody Prayer

22 11 2011

Here’s a shout out to all the students out there! (Thanks Frank for sharing this with me.)

Now I lay me down to study,
so I pray I won’t go nutty!
If I should fail to learn this junk,
I pray thee Lord I will not flunk.
But if I do not shed a tear,
just put a rose behind my ear,
then pile my books upon my chest
and perhaps I’ll die before I wake
so that will make one less test to take!
