asking for your help

Since we are an organization that depends on God working in and through lots of people, we are often asking for help. These days I am focused on that a lot.
So, I thought that in addition to Fb and Twitter, I should say a few words on the blog about helping us in the easiest way I know. By voting for us. How? Simply by going to our page at GivingOfLife and voting for us (up to 5 times! – but that’s a bit more than just a click).

By voting for us, you help put us in the running for some grant money of between $2,000 and $50,000! All you have to do is vote! You can learn more at
http://www.ceokids.org/vote

The next thing you can do is spread the word for us. Using your social network, you can, from our page at GivingOfLife tell folks about us via Twitter and Fb.
You can also “like” Fb posts that I and others put up about this endeavor and retweet our tweets.

All good things must come to an end and this good thing ends in early November, so its not too late!

So, please join our cause, we believe its a good cause and need your participation.
please vote!!!
We also need your financial partnership, but you knew that already and that’s for another day.
Thank You

The Help

Last night we saw The Help. I remember seeing the previews, which didn’t grab me at all. This was a great movie. I heartily suggest you go see this movie!

flight 93 memorial

I spent most of today in the car. On my way to northwest PA from the ‘ville I routed myself by the Flight 93 memorial. The memorial is underway. It was dedicated on Saturday, and over the weekend three presidents have been here. This morning the park was closed for a private funeral. The family members, understandably, have sole access to the boulder which marks the final resting place of the aircraft. I shot a bit of film that I hope to put into a movie. I’ll post that here, like I did the Srebrenica film.
I guess the thing that strikes me is how with all the towns and farms nearby, the plane went down in a dis-used coal strip mines. When I learned that I was surprised. All the way here I’ve seen so many farms and pastures, mountains and valleys, that the last thing I would have thought was that flt. 93 would has come to a stop on an old strip mine.
The other thought that struck me at the wall was that these 40 souls were on their way from NJ to SF. And that they heard about what was going on and acted to save thousands in DC.
I’ll try to get more thoughts and video up sooner than later.

marriage conversations

I was just talking to a brother about life and his marriage came up. As I asked questions and listened to him, a TV show came to mind. I was able to find this clip which I think is an interesting bit of instruction on how husbands should speak with their wives about things…

So, what do you think?

God: a description

What a broad world to roam in, what a sea to swim in is this God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. He is eternal, which means that He antedates time and is wholly independent of it. Time began in Him and will end in Him. To it He pays no tribute and from it He suffers no change. He is immutable, which means that He has never changed and can never change in any smallest measure.
To change He would need to go from better to worse or from worse to better. He cannot do either, for being perfect He cannot become more perfect, and if He were to become less perfect He would be less than God. He is omniscient, which means that He knows in one free and effortless act all matter, all spirit, all relationships, all events. He has no past and He has no future. He is, and none of the limiting and qualifying terms used of creatures can apply to Him. Love and mercy and righteousness are His, and holiness so ineffable that no comparisons or figures will avail to express it.
