Here’s a beautiful poem I found by David Weatherford, a child psychologist. P.S. Go to his website for the finest midi music your ears have ever heard.
Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round,
or listened to rain slapping the ground?
Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight,
or gazed at the sun fading into the night?
You better slow down, don’t dance so fast,
time is short, the music won’t last.
Don’t you love a good deal? I’m a big fan of Craigslist.org. Yes, I’ve had some crazy experiences (Craigslist Robber), but some of the finds are unbelievable.
I remember wanting an iPod Touch so badly. But for $399 + tax brand new, it wasn’t going to happen. So I started scanning Craigslist. Every day, sometimes even a couple times a day. But the deals weren’t that great.
Then one day, I came across a newly listed brand new iPod Touch. The price? Only $200! Apparently, the seller had been given it after already owning one and just wanted to get rid of it.
When I saw how good a deal it was, I pounced on it. I called the seller up. I jumped in my car, cancelled my other plans, and drove (safely and within the speed limit, of course) to Tim Horton’s to pick it up. And I’m still excited about that deal today. You see, when you come across an AMAZING opportunity, you don’t put it off, you don’t hold back, and you don’t look back.Read More

The BASIC students were visiting a small group meeting of another Christian ministry on campus. After the meeting ended, the leader of the other club asked if anyone wanted to discuss anything else. A student in BASIC asked how others felt about baptism in the Holy Spirit and the gifts of the Spirit.Read More
What a crazy week! One week ago, I thought I was buying a computer on craigslist.org. As I met with the “seller” in my car at a Wal-Mart parking lot, he asked to see the $1000 I had brought to buy the computer. I told him I wanted to see the computer first. Instead of reaching into his bag to pull out a computer, he pulled out a black and silver handgun and pointed it right at me!Read More
