Quite the touching speech if you ask me. Can’t see how it doesn’t bring a tear to your eye.
Were you bullied as a child? Chance are, yes. This amazing piece powers through the chaff to uncover the real results.
To This Day Project has created a must-see masterpiece. It’s incredibly well-done in both image and sound and hits on the topic of bullying, showing the real results of what so many of us minimize.
Steven Wiltshire is amazing. In fact, amazing isn’t a strong enough word. Awesome is overused. Incredible doesn’t do him justice.
I’m truly at a loss for words.
What would you call someone who could draw like this? I know… unique. Truly inspiring.
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is on Monday, but today is his birthday.
I think too many people forget that his driving purpose was for more than just equal rights, it was for people to know and share in the love of his Savior.
If you don’t read anything else today, please read this. I copied it from Promises to Keep: Daily Devotions for Men of Integrity
A middle-aged black man on skid row in Los Angeles recently paraded down the street with a sign that read, “I NEED ‘BREAD’ TO GET ME TO THE MILLION MAN MARCH IN D.C.” He held out a hat for donations to finance his trip the 1995 event. Drugs and alcohol had failed, maybe he could fill the void in his heart by going to the march. He, like thousands of others, felt empty but didn’t realize that you cannot find meaning in an ocean of lost souls.
This man’s father had been in Washington in 1963, gathered with whites and blacks at the Lincoln Memorial with demands to pass civil rights legislation. And those demands were met. But what effect did this victory have for him? His only son was steeped in hate and was imprisoned for “wasting” a rival gang member. Three generations in search of imperishable food and all remaining empty. His father may have been searching for the right things but did he go to the right place to find it?
Few will forget the surge of the crowd when Martin Luther King Jr., made his “I have a dream” speech, accompanied by while folk singers such as Joan Beaz and Bob Dylan. One writer described the event as “in keeping with King’s color-blind vision of the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners sitting together at the table of brotherhood.” Even today I know few people who can’t sit through a recording of that same speech without being captured by the beauty of the vision of a unified country. King’s legacy will remain with us, but how many neighborhoods have become brotherhoods? Is this nation closer to judging people by the content of their character? The work has been done in the House of Representatives and the Senate of this great nation, but we have forgotten the greater work that must be done at the altar of repentance. Even with legislative victories, the insatiable hunger for meaning persists.
Rhetoric does not satisfy the soul. New laws will not feed people who are starving for purpose. Only Jesus does. Two thousand years ago He proclaimed that man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God (Matt: 4:4).
Are you hungry? broken? dispossed? searching for meaning? purpose? … Do you thirst for truth? God wants to speak to you straight from His heart. After hope and reason have failed, faith conquers.
Dr. Eben Alexander, a neurosurgeon, was in a coma for 7 days. Afterwards, he came back with a wildly different view of how the soul exists by itself, and is distinct from the body.
There is no scientific explanation for the fact that while my body lay in coma, my mind—my conscious, inner self—was alive and well. While the neurons of my cortex were stunned to complete inactivity by the bacteria that had attacked them, my brain-free consciousness journeyed to another, larger dimension of the universe: a dimension I’d never dreamed existed and which the old, pre-coma me would have been more than happy to explain was a simple impossibility.
After reading that, see if you agree with his claim that science proves heaven is real.
STOP! Before you start this movie, shut the door, close the blinds, put your headphones on, close your eyes and take a deep breath.
Ok, now you’re ready. Enjoy!
Undoubtedly there are more important things to focus on but frankly, I’ve never grown up. So stuff like this still crack me up.
I’ve had some uber long burps in my life, possibly 18 seconds but I could never be ready to belt one out at an established time. I’m all about the impromptu and LOUD burp. TMI I’m sure.
It’s so cool to see how God created the human brain to adapt, not only to normal life experiences but to also repair and even re-focus like with Jake Barnett. This 13-minute 60 Minutes piece is astounding! (If only there weren’t any commercials in the embed.)
“Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn’t.”
Brings us today’s outlandish story:
Can you imagine that? Ryan Kitchin must be doing EVERYthing his Mom tells him from here on out. Don’t you think?
These videos are compiled into an amazing montage of extreme stunts. Supah cool! Have to say though… some are doctored. I know those of LeBron James hitting those far shots weren’t real, even still it’s a great clip called People Are Awesome.
You’re asking me, “What Is Batmanning?” Seriously?!? Where have you been?
Batmanning is all the rage with the cool kids these days.
I wish I could post more. That would mean I’m successful and have lots of free time and am happy all the time. Or would it? Yeah, it probably would.
I wish I could post more.
I just read this in Francis Chan’s Crazy Love book. You never know when you might die. Live today as though it could be your last… because it could.
“Since I Have My Life Before Me”
By Brooke Bronkowski
I’ll live my life to the fullest. I’ll be happy. I’ll brighten up. I will be more joyful than I have ever been. I will be kind to others. I will loosen up. I will tell others about Christ. I will go on adventures and change the world. I will be bold and not change who I really am. I will have no troubles but instead help others with their troubles.
You see, I’ll be one of those people who live to be history makers at a young age. Oh, I’ll have moments, good and bad, but I’ll wipe away the bad and only remember the good. In fact that’s all I remember, just good moments, nothing in between, just living my life to the fullest. I’ll be one of those people who go somewhere with a mission, an awesome plan, a world-changing plan, and nothing will hold me back. I’ll set an example for others, I will pray for direction.
I have my life before me. I will give others the joy I have and God will give me more joy. I will do everything God tells me to do. I will follow the footsteps of God. I will do my best!!!
Man made religions just aren’t cutting it. The world is as messed up as ever. Where can we find help?
Why can’t I find something that’s simple to bring such joy. I love it!
