Explosion
Originally uploaded by Matt and Carrie.

Last night we had a root beer kegger for our first Canvas Group event. We met on top of the Virginia Parking Garage and had close to 50 people there! It was amazing and totally blessed by God!! This is a picture of us making the root beer…yeah, that’s right…homemade root beer! It was AMAZING!! Although, you have to be careful…when you put the dry ice in the mixture, it can and will explode if you don’t get the lid on fast enough (notice explosion in picture!). Needless to say, we had a great time. Grace slept through the making of the root beer, but was wide awake to watch everyone drink their root beer floats. Her eyes were locked in and ready to try it for herself! Soon, Grace, you can have some too!!

“Open Wide Grace – It’s Squash”
Carrie and I fed Grace her first vegetable today – squash. She’s sitting on my lap right now as I type this – happy as a NASA astronaut after his first meal back on earth. It honestly was a new world for her. Her eyes lit up. She craned her neck toward the spoon. She craved every bite. And then there was mom and dad. You can see we tried to eat for her. I always used to hate it when my mom would open her mouth as she fed us, or gave us medicine, or when she would put her arm across my chest when she had to slam on the brakes. Well Grace, I’m sorry to say, today is the start of that chapter in your life. Posted by Picasa

Ruth – The Audio Movie

Here is the final creation from a bible study I led this summer on the book of Ruth. Each of the people involved in the study read part of the Book of Ruth. I used images from works of art, and other places to piece together what I saw. We read the book this summer, imagining the characters as they might act in a movie. It really brough alive our reading and drew us closer to the character of God. The dedication Ruth showed to stay with Naomi, inspires me anew to remain dedicated to many things…the word of God, my friends, my wife, and my child.

Pujols.mp3
Ever wonder how that perfect song comes on before Albert Pujols Comes up to bat? It’s done from a computer in the press box of Busch Stadium. My friend Scott Schaefer plays the organ at Busch when Ernie Hays is off. He invited us up to the press box. I thought this was so cool to see where all the technical stuff happens.  Posted by Picasa
