This one here wasn't particularly well timed, was it? I'm not getting all up in a bunch about it, just think it's interesting. More so yet that it hasn't been pulled...
You wanna know what Jesus looks like?
"Then I turned to see the (loud voice like the sound of a trumpet) that was speaking w me. And having turned I saw seven golden lampstands; and in the middle of the lampstands I saw one like a son of man, clothed in a robe reaching to the feet, and girded across his chest w a golden sash. His head and His hair were white like white wool, like snow; and His eyes were like a flame of fire. His feet were like burnished bronze that has been made to glow in a furnace, and His voice roared like the sound of many rushing waters. In His right hand He held seven stars, and out of His mouth came a sharp two edged sword, and His face was like the sun shining in its strength. When I saw Him, I fell at His feet like a dead man." (Rev1:12-17a)
Problems w the standard image we see are many. Right, He was mideastern and not caucasian. Then it flies in the face of the Biblical command not to create any image of anything on earth or in heaven. (Exo20, and maybe here we can see one reason for that command.) Since moreoever, that beatific smile makes us feel all warm and fuzzy; "Aw, He's just all loving and will forgive anything I do."
And He does. Read on to the rest of Rev 1:17,18. "And He placed His right hand on me, saying, 'Do not be afraid, I am the first and the Last, and the Living One, and I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore.'"
He put His hand on John, lifted him back up. After, that is, John fell on his face.
I think normally I'd say Workin Man's PhD by Aaron Tippin. I used to go by Tuff Enuff by the Fab T-birds when I worked in the oil field, but that's just for the chorus. Right now I'd go by No Surrender by The Boss, all the way through. Be nice to go by The Light on the Stage by Cory Morrow; I've got the past it'd be nice to have the future.
I rode a bicycle down an up escalator once. It took a long time, and the drops were really violent. Really regretted it about a third the way down, 2/3s the way felt like falling over on purpose and heading back up.
My favorite name of all time is a guy I went to high school with. Ashley Shelby Grigsby Lamar. The Third.
Can't tell you what he's doing, but it was a catholic school and he was studious, so my guess is he's on to great things. (A search revealed he sold a house for $500K, and he's 38...)
Another kid I went to school with was Thomas Stuart Price Perriello, III. And I guess he was a US Representative.
Thought it was one of the funnier things I've seen in a long time. Enough to lift laughs through the crawling recall of such an insecure era in life.
Gotta say though, I had friends make more professional appearing videos, in High School, with 1990 technology.
To me it all seems like a colossal waste of money. How did any of it get our race ahead? I'll take the GPS and communication satellites. Other than that it seems to be to be a bunch of patting ourselves on the back for being self important.
