I was up in Wisconsin on Saturday speaking at the INSIDE-OUT Elmbrook Children’s Ministry Conference, and could not believe what I saw when I arrived: (click any picture for a larger view) Yes, they had construction machinery moving the snow. MAN, was I jealous, that looked like so much fun! That is some serious snow removal! They take all the snow and put it in one corner next to a retention pond. By the end of the day, the pile was HUGE! I was told that their snow pile last into July! I just HAD to see the view from up there! It was a lot bigger than it looks in these pictures, and teens were snow boarding down the other side! Why did I climb the mountain of snow, with a cane and a sprained ankle? Because it was there!
One of fun things about CPC is the creative and fun ways exhibitors think of to promote their ministries and draw people to their booth. This year paper airplanes have been flying around the exhibit hall and they seem to all come from the direction of the TruthQuest Booth. So I went to investigate and I got one for myself. They are very cool and are promoting their newest VBS Flight School. But always with my readers in mind, I ask Michael Martin (founder of TruthQuest and CP Extraordinaire) if he would e-mail me the PDF to share with y’all here, and he agreed!

A little something for my friends who are still on PC… Brain Works Free Download Test I’m cleaning out my home office (January tradition) and I came across my “brain results” that I printed out several years ago because it PEGGED me in both some positive and not-so-nice-to-read but TRUE aspects of my personality. I googled it and it’s still online, but it is PC only. (.exe file) But if you have a PC I think you will enjoy taking the quiz and I’m curious if you find the results as insightful as I did mine. HAVE FUN! For a more serious personality test recently recommended to me check out www.uniquelyyou.com It is not free, but very good.
ALL FOR ONE, AND ONE FOR ALL! OK, for the first time I am asking my vast reading audience to help out a friend in need. It’s not a crisis, but with just a few minutes of effort you can help a good buddy of mine. His name is Pastor Andy, and his brother Ray (Raymie) VanDerLinden has been chosen as a finalist in a contest to design the paint job on a NASCAR (Ryan Newman #12. The Kodak car). There are three days left in the competition and he is in second place. Here is were you come in. If you are willing, you can visit the web link below and cast your vote for his brother’s car. It only takes half a minute, and could make the difference in him winning or coming in second place. You will need to fill out a quick entry form before you can vote. You are able to vote once per day for the next three days. http://thinklikeryan.com/index2.html If he wins he will get to fly to California (all expenses paid) for a NASCAR race and his design will be painted on Ryan Newman’s race car. Andy’s brother is a huge NACAR…
This is just too cool, I had to post it. It shows how amazing, and how crazy the brain is! CHECK OUT THIS PICTURE: 1) If you follow the moving pink dot with your eye, it will stay pink. 2) If you focus on the center cross, you will see a green dot moving around the pink ones. 3) If you keep concentrating on the cross all the pink dots will disappear and there will be only a moving green dot. BUT! There is NO GREEN DOT! Ever. And the pink dots DO NOT disappear. Just just illustrates how what we think we see is not always accurate. It could also illustrate how if we focus on the Cross the little things of life will fade and we will begin to see God move in ways that others can not see! Thanks to my Uncle John for sending me this!
