Encouraging Words

It's amazing when my 5-year-old comes home talking about the history behind MLK day. When I was in Kindergarten, we learned our color...

What would NOAH tweet about?

So news of Darren Aronfsky's NOAH is popping up all over the web.  From this story on USA Today, to hundreds of twitter feeds and facebook posts.

Not only is the excitement is building from the different outlets and word of mouth, but also through Aronfsky's tweets from his direct feed.  You can go follow him here for a play by play on the movie's progress.  Russell Crowe is even engaging in tweeting about his experience along the way.

It made me start thinking, "What would NOAH tweet if he could?"

Day 1 - lots of rain ... people are laughing at my ark.  They think I'm an #epicfail

Day 10 - Water has overcome our city.  People are not laughing anymore.  They're begging to get in.  #thisishard

Day 20 - I don't see a living soul...very sad.  Surrounded by water.  #confusedbutstayingfaithful

Day 30 - I really want off this big boat.  My family is grumbling, but I'm trusting God.  #theanimalssmell

Day 40 - I see a rainbow.  We've found land.  We're stepping out to start anew.  #praiseGod #miracleshappen

When things get hard, what is our reaction?  Do we step out in faith? Or do we grumble and sit by, watching the rain?  I think Noah's story is one of the most intriguing throughout the Bible.  Against all odds - through his family's, friends', and neighbors' doubts - he listened and was obedient.  He never strayed from the task at hand.  I'm not saying he didn't doubt himself or God a little, but he obeyed and was blessed with the opportunity to start a whole new generation.  

I can't wait for this movie.

Facing Redemption Update

So the cover, for Facing Redemption, is done ... the final review is in (all glowing reviews) ... and I'm ready to roll.  Above is a teaser of what the cover is going to look like. 

The model, who posed for the cover, is very easy on the eyes, and will be at the launch party for photo opps with anyone interested.

We're going to have live music, free appetizers, pics taken with author and cover model, and door prizes.  It will be a fun night.

The most important part of the night will be what we're going to for the community.  A portion of the proceeds will go to benefit the C.A.R.E. Center, an organization, which cares for abused and neglected children.  They're well deserved of any help they can get, and I'm excited to be able to help out in any way.

So far we've got a solid turnout but could always use more.  If you're in OKC on September 15th, come by Sauced, the best pizza place in the Paseo district.  While you're there, order a pizza and stay for a while.  You'll have a good time!
