According to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, 513,000 children are in foster care in the
Vincent stated yesterday that I’m asking a lot out of families to be foster parents. I know I am, but the fact is, a) we are called to help the orphans (James 1:27), b) many of us are willing to go on short term mission trips for a year to two years over seas. How about serving God, in the comfort of your own home? Majority of the children are in foster care for the same amount of time. c) within the 50mile radius of where I live, if one family, out of one church takes in a child, we would have found a home for every child in foster care in the state of GA. d) “Whoever welcomes one of these little children in My name, welcomes Me…” Mark 9:37.
I realize that we are not all called to be foster/adoptive parents, but there are other ways to help. So if anyone is curious, let me know, I’ll fill ya in.
Also, if you have time, check out the video from Dave Thomas Foundation. It is a promotional video so it can be seen as impersonal, but I work with/for these children…they are my ‘reality’: I claim it’s message to be personal.
Alright, alright back to work…

It’s been a busy weekend.
We had the privilege of meeting Mr. Fox because Vincent had written an article about him in the Pulse. Brent Mills, the host of the event and producer of National Geographic Video: Hunt for the Great White Shark, had helped Vincent gather information, set up the interview with Mr. Fox and was kind enough to invite us to the event. The speaker was enjoyable and furthermore the sushi and the shrimp cocktail were delish.

Vincent's current CD review is out on the Pulse news stands.
I have to admit, being around for Vincent's process of reviewing albums, I become cynical towards the articles he puts out. I have a tendency to ignore the music he plays to review and wait for my turn to pop in my personal collection of music. All the more, I breathe a sigh of relief when he finishes his articles, glad that I can have his company again. All that said, once I get over myself and read the articles, I appreciate his passion for writing. The current review of Tom Waits, Orphans: Brawlers, Bawlers & Bastards has been my favorite read so far (and the album itself is a joy to listen to).The clip above is the music video for "Lie To Me" from the new album.
Thanks to everyone for coming out to celebrate their birthdays! Pictures are up on Flickr.

Bethany ("my almost common law roommate", as she would put it) is to be married to Ben Weaver! Ah, such sweet news! God is always so good, ever so faithful. If it weren't for Vincent and Ben, Bethany, I and her cats would have grown old on our porch, growing to be the greatest hags of all times. Ben, I'm so excited at the thought of having you as a brother. Bethany, love you, miss you, I'm coming up to celebrate.

I guess this means that someone from Coptix can recruit a writer for "A Day in the Life of a Coptix Worker". OH! and then some one from 3HD can up the ante by writing "A Day in the Life of a 3HD Worker." Well, while we are at it, Vincent can start writing for "A Day in the life of a Trueshine Worker".

The first clip is of him walking in, and the second is of him making a wish as he blew his candle. More pics are posted on my Flickr site.
Andy says, "30 is the new 20." Which is quite true looking at the current demograpics of people in their 20s. We don't get married till we are older, we don't get "real" jobs until we are older, we don't have kids till we are older and the list goes on (with the understanding that there are exceptions). We live in a culture that wants to prolong our adolescence as long as we can(...or is it 'want', not 'can'?). Is it because we are lazy? Is it becuase we have too many options in how to live? Or is it because we just love our lives as is? I dunno. All I know is that Andy turned 30 and he's livin' it like he's still 20! A responsible 20yr old, that is.

Tommy the dancemaster...
I did think of cutting the end off this clip, but Lowen's moves were priceless, so I kept it in for fun viewing.
And here is a bit of Josiah:

Does anyone know when and where in Chattanooga "Pan's Labyrinth" will be showing? It looks a bit scary for me, cuz I'm the wussy type, but I'm curious just the same. Rotten Tomatoes gave it 99% (Cream of the Crop gave it %100). I've never heard of the director, I don't really like scary movies...but I do enjoy a solid flick. So, if anyone knows anything about this flick and thinks it worth seeing, let me know if its coming around town.
