U is for…

This Weeks Memory Verse: U is for…

“Until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the law until all is accomplished.” Matthew 5:18

Hymn of the Week: “O Love That Will Not Let Me Go” (Matheson/Peace)

O Love that will not let me go, I rest my weary soul in Thee;
I give thee back the life I owe, That in Thine ocean depths its flow
May richer, fuller be.

O Light that followest all my way, I yield my flickering torch to Thee;
My heart restores its borrowed ray, That in Thy sunshine’s blaze its day
May brighter, fairer be.

O Joy that seekest me through pain, I cannot close my heart to Thee;
I trace the rainbow through the rain, And feel the promise is not vain
That morn shall tearless be.

O Cross that liftest up my head, I dare not ask to fly from Thee;
I lay in dust life’s glory dead, And from the ground there blossoms red
Life that shall endless be.

On This Day in 1968…

…the crew of Apollo 8 sent back this Christmas Eve broadcast. Here are Bill Anders, Jim Lovell, and Frank Borman reading from Genesis 1.


With all of the technological advances since 1968, the science community, and our country at large, has only managed to get further and further from the truth.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it…
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory…and from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.” John 1:1-18

The babe in the manger was no less than the Creator of it all.

Happy Thanksgiving and Hau’ oli la hanau, Uncle Jody!

Today, all of our extended family members will be gathered around mainland tables with other family members and we’re really missing everyone, so here’s a “Happy Thanksgiving” to all the families out there enjoying our Lord’s gracious bounty and rich togetherness. Also, a special shout out to my big brother, Jody, the second-best fisherman in the family and definitely the best photographer, whose birthday it is and who just posted this awesome video of some of his photos on Youtube that I wanted to share with the world (or at least the 3450 countries that have come across this blog). You can see more of his work at http://www.sierramountainphotography.com/
