If you haven’t noticed I’ve added some things to my blogroll. You should check em out. Do it.
II Corinthians 4:16-18
“So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.”
Praise God for his word.
So you might remember this video I made last year when I gave a message at Woodland Christian High School last year. I watched it for the first time in months today and a whole year later I am still dumbfounded by the answers some of these people gave. I expected there to be people who would say that Christmas is not about Jesus. I expected people to say that they aren’t down with the commercialism that Christmas brings with it now. I even expected some people to actually say that Christmas is about Jesus. What I did not expect was the amount of people who are willing to admit that they know it’s supposed to be about Jesus but couldn’t care less. To be honest, making this video broke my heart. Ignorance is one thing, ignorance I can help with. Changing hearts? Yeah, still can’t do that. So I post this not to show off my sweet video editing skills, I found mistakes and I can’t figure out how they made it past me before. This is just a reminder that there are plenty of opportunities to combat Santa and his onslaught of commercialism with good news! Myspace won’t let me embed my own video here so try clicking this.
Lately my family’s been asking me the always unanswered, “What do you want for Christmas?”. I’ve been a little bit better about answering this year, explaining that I’d like to have some more clothes that I can wear to work (AB) or books and music always work. Well, today I discovered the wish list feature on Amazon.com and I’ve already spent way too much time on there. My question is, what book or CD needs to be on there that you find lacking? I figure if you’re reading this you probably have a good idea of what I’d like. If that’s not the case, tell me what you would like, I’ll pretend like I care. Ok, I’m kidding. But seriously… Take a look.
I wanna be able to do this…
Bryan and I moved to Chico about 3 months ago. As you all know I just recently found work and have done a better job keeping busy but Bryan is still without. Boredom has taken its toll and he’s losing it. Here’s a little video just to give you a taste of what I’m talking about. Pray for him and while you’re at it, pray for me. I’m the one who has to live with this nut job…
