Well, my friends. Tonight I leave on a week's vacation. I will be going to St. Maarten with my dad and mom and my sister and her husband Caleb. I am excited to experience God's creation in such an incredible place. It should be relaxing and enjoyable. But most of all, I am excited for the time I will have to sleep in, read God's Word, dig into some good books, and focus on some Scripture memory. I will be back next Friday (4/4/07) and I'll tell you more about it and hopefully post some good pictures. Have a blessed week! Keep blogging.

Give Crustaceans a Chance

4/28/07 World Magazine:
Freedom didn't come cheaply for approximately 300 lobsters held for distribution in tanks at the New Meadows Lobster Pound in Maine. A group of young environmentalists arrived at New Meadows and demanded the company give the lobsters a chance at freedom. In this case, cash talked: After paying nearly $3,400 in cash, the environmentalists gathered up their 300 lobsters and told New Meadows owner Pete McAleney they planned to release them back into the ocean. "We told them they're going to get caught again and they said, 'That's OK. We just want them to have a chance before they get caught again,'" McAleney said. "I don't know if they go around and free chickens and cows or what."

You Don't Want to Miss This

Here's something you don't see everyday!
And there's more where that came from. It's well worth the 30 seconds--trust me!

Sometimes fact is stranger than fiction. Check out this story about an American solider in Iraq that was shot, but didn't even know it--the bullet went through his IPod and then didn't penetrate his bullet-proof vest. He wasn't harmed at all. God's sovereignty on display once again! (I thought this was post-worthy!)

I am amazed, no, flabbergasted at the talent God gives some people. Not just..."o, he's pretty good," but "oh-my-word, blow-you-away, knock-your-socks-off-kind-of-talent." I'm talking about some of the most talented people in the world! And I have a couple of those people right at my church. Jubilant Sykes and Christopher Parkening. Jubilant is an acclaimed tenor singer and Christopher is a world-renown classical guitarist. I've heard them both perform so much, I often forget how rare their talent is. But I am reminded that I can't take such wonderful talent, such wonderful gifts, such wonderful men, for granted. I am obligated and happy to recognize their talent as a blessing from the Lord and to worship Him for His character, His majesty, and His creativity, which is displayed through these two men.
