It is one of those days were it is sort of nice outside, but very hot inside. I wanted to play around on the computer but the heat is getting to me. (And my mom won't turn the air conditioner on.) I will probably retire from the computer and find a cool place to go to. We went earlier and watched my nephew in a karate demonstration and we stopped to get a couple of Hot and Ready pizzas on the way home. So now everyone is relaxing. I hope everyone has a nice weekend and HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!!!

Information On Jim Hill Song

Last year I posted a blog about Jim Hill and the song he wrote, "What A Day That Will Be." Well after I had posted it, some months later while going through some of my older posts, I noticed that a man had left a comment requesting information on how he could get in touch with Jim Hill. He told me that he wanted to use the song for a CD and he wanted to request to use it. Well I felt really bad that I didn't know he left a comment and he didn't have a e-mail that I could send him a message.

I still don't know how to get in touch with Jim Hill. But the other day we went to another church and I picked up a song book and started going through it. I saw an address at the bottom of the page in the book under Jim Hill's "What A Day That Will Be." I am posting the address just in case this man would come by to check out my blog again. If you or anyone else would like to use the song for a recording just send a letter requesting to use the song to the address below. I hope this can be of some help to someone who wants to use the song.

People Need The Lord

Last year while watching TV before we went to church, we were introduced to a young man that we fell in love with. They had him testify at a church service in Florida. I received a DVD of a couple of messages and the DVD also had this young man's testimony. I believe I probably watched it at least 5 times or more. We also found out that he was a preacher. I know what you are wondering, what is so special about this young man. Well he was born with a rare type of muscular dystrophy and he was only given 2 years to live and now he is 19 years old. His name is Jacob Berry and he is a mighty little preacher for God. I have never heard a bad message from him. My favorite message by Jacob is "Living on the Fingertips of God." It is a very powerful message.

Here is a video of Jacob signing "People Need The Lord." From what I understand before Jacob could talk he had is own form of sign language. Tomorrow I will post a message by Jacob Berry entitled, "Did John See Faces?"

You're Late!!!!!

Well Saturday was one crazy night. We had a graduation party to go to. The house is not very far from our home so we walked. When we started to pass one of our neighbors' house down the road from us, they said that they had an jail escapee. So we all walked down to the party together. We were there a little after 7:30 pm.

Then we found out more news about the so called escapee. First thing he was not an escapee but someone who had called and told someone else that he was coming to kill them. So that person called the police, then the so called escapee shot at the police and then barred himself in someones house, causing us in our small community to be sort of trapped in our community. They would not let no one leave or come in.

So while we were at the graduation party eating, the person who had graduated was not there. Her parents kept calling her, they had found out that she had went to a friends' house. Then she called them and told them how close she was, she could have easily got out of her car walked to her house. But the police would not let her, they actually told her that if she got out of her car they would shoot her.

For some odd reason we all thought this was so funny (not the part about the police going to shoot her if she got out of her car, just the part about her being late for her own party). The dad of the girl who graduated, actually starting joking with me saying if the armed criminal came to the party that he would introduce me to him. LOL!!! Everyone I know is trying to play match maker. Then everyone had ate, but they had not cut the cake so we had to wait. Finally the girl's dad said that if the armed guy showed up they would cut the cake. LOL!!!

Well the cake got cut before the girl showed up. I was getting cake for myself and my dad when everyone starting saying here she comes this was after 9:00 pm. When she walked over I looked at her and said, "You're late!!!!" She laughed and said that she couldn't help it. We told her that this would be something that she would never forget and I also told her to cut the newspaper clipping from the paper and put in her senior book. It was an experience, something we never have happen in our community. Wow, what a night!!!
