2014 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,800 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 47 trips to carry that many people.

Lutheran Hour Ministries Bible Studies Now Mobile and Lean Back Compatible

On January 22, Lutheran Hour Ministries’ (LHM) Men’s Network announced that their Bible studies are Android, iPad, and Lean-Back compatible*.  This means you have the ability to view, share, and post (e.g. Google+, Facebook, email Twitter, Pinterest, etc. ) the Bible study videos wherever and whenever you have your iPad or other Android device.

They created a channel for their videos on Vimeo.   You can also use a Roku or similar device to watch the videos on your t.v. for a “lean-back” experience.  Above is an example of what you can find at the LHM Vimeo site.  They also have study materials available for free download from their LHM Men’s Network site.

This is a great resource provided free from LHM.  Please take a minute to check it out and if you are able consider donating to this ministry.

*Note: I added “Lean Back compatible to LHM’s description.  Not only can you use Vimeo to stream to a Roku Box, but they also have mobile apps available at  the Google Play StoreiTunes, etc.



Before U were thought of or time had begun,

God stuck U in the name of His Son..

 And each time U pray, you’ll see it’s true,

You can’t spell out JesUs and not include U.

You’re a pretty big part of His wonderful name,

For U, He was born; that’s why He came.


And His great love for U is the reason He died.

It even takes U to spell crUcified..


Isn’t it thrilling and splendidly grand

He rose from the dead, with U in His plan?


The stones split away, the gold trUmpet blew,

And this word resUrrection is spelled with a U.


When JesUs left earth at His Upward ascension,

He felt there was one thing He just had to mention.


“Go into the world and tell them it’s true

That I love them all – Just like I love U.”
