‘Be Born in Me’

I had never heard this one before–Be Born in Me, performed by the kids at Fountainview Academy.

Jesus Christ is the answer.


Endearing Young Sloths

My wife has a fondness for baby sloths. A lot of people do. They make cute baby sounds. There’s also a kangaroo in this video. Don’t ask me how that happened.

Back in the day, giant ground sloths got as big as elephants. I wonder what their babies were like.


By Request, ‘In the Garden’

Both Erlene and Phoebe called for this one, so here it is–In the Garden, sung by Alan Jackson.

And now to wait for the snowstorm…


Encore, ‘Behold, the Mountain of the Lord’

You don’t mind, do you, if I resort again to one of my favorite hymns? Behold, the Mountain of the Lord, sung by Godfrey Birtill–ancient Scottish hymn.

If you don’t long to see the rising of the mountain of the Lord… better check to make sure you’re still alive.


‘Sno Business like Snow business

More cats frolicking in snow. We have snow in our forecast for the weekend. I’ll believe it when I see it.

I’m especially intrigued by the cats who totally submerge themselves in snow. If I did that it would get under my clothes. That’s something cats don’t worry about.


Backup Hymn: ‘Blessed Be the Name’

Just in case you couldn’t get satisfactory sound quality out of the hymn I posted earlier, here’s another one with perfect sound–Blessed Be the Name, performed by Nathan and Lyle with family and friends in Denton County, Texas. This hymn is closely related to another well-loved classic, O For a Thousand Tongues to sing: they may even be variants of one another. Hymns pass through a lot of loving hands on their way to God’s ear.


By Request, ‘How Great Thou Art’

Erlene requested How Great Thou Art–and who doesn’t love this hymn? I chose this rendition by Burl Ives: not the greatest sound reproduction, but I couldn’t resist the video. Beautiful flowing streams like that whisper to us, “God is nigh, God created me, He created you… God is nigh.” So you may have to turn up the volume a bit.


Puppies Galore

When they’re not helping us get around the social media censors, puppies bring a lot of joy into our lives.

By the way, do any of you fall asleep in the bathtub? When it has water in it, I mean. It’s the sort of thing a puppy would do.


Are His Tusks on Backwards? (Bonus Video)

I’m getting antsy for Obann, and I want to flush the day’s nooze out of my brain… so let’s join Mr. Nature on a prehistoric safari.

Hi, Mr. Nature here–and the video is in Hindi, so I have no idea what the narrator is saying; but I know a Deinotherium when I see one. Well, okay, there are no more Deinotheriums, only pictures and video recreations.

These are related to the elephants we know and love today, and lived in Europe, Africa, and Asia. Some of them were considerably bigger than modern elephants. Plus it looks like their tusks are on backwards. Deinotherium’s tusks were attached to the lower jaw instead of coming out of the upper, like an elephant’s.

We do not know how this animal used its tusks. Scraping bark off trees? Maybe. They look so much like elephants that the two must have had a lot in common. Except for those tusks. The more you look at them, the more puzzling it gets. What good did their tusks do them, down there?

But God the Designer doesn’t make mistakes, and doesn’t create living things that don’t work. However those tusks functioned, we can be sure they served the animal well.


By Request, ‘Listen to Him’

Requested by Joshua, Listen to Him, by Acapella–a hymn about the Transfiguration.

While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.  –Matthew 17:5

In all the “Bible movies” I’ve watched, I’ve never seen a reenactment of the Transfiguration, in which Our Lord Jesus Christ was revealed as the very Son of God. I wonder why that is.
