I Was Here...

I was spending some time watching some illustration videos the other day, when I came across the video "I Was Here" at Bluefish TV. This video falls in line with the review I did of The Butterfly Effect earlier this week and I thought I would share it with you today.

When you think about your life...what are you leaving behind???

Will there be a footprint in time, saying that you made a difference???

Did you truly stand for something???

My prayer is that you will find inspiration and a hope to realize your life matters more than you might ever realize!!!

Please let me know if you have a special prayer request I can word on your behalf today!!! Please enjoy the video...

The Butterfly Effect: Book review

My latest review is one I have been planning to submit for some time, but have just never found the time to simply sit and take the time to type it out. It is my latest installment from the BookSneeze Blog review program of Thomas Nelson Publishers.

I have read the past two books written by Andy Andrews and was very excited to find this book. The whole basis of the book is along the lines of the butterfly effect spoken of in years past in the scientific community. Basically, that theory stated that if a butterfly flapped its' wings on one side of the world, it could cause a ripple effect that could produce astounding things to take place on the opposite side of the world.

Andy takes that theory and breaks it down in how our lives can cause a ripple effect in time. By the things we do, regardless how small, we can change others which can cause amazing things to be possible.

Some of the places he draws from are the Civil War and the stand made by one man, in the face of certain death...this stand changed the course of history...what would life be like if the South had won? What if there were no United States? Another was the backstory of George Washington the sacrifices of others made possible the advances in agriculture he was able to make...

The bottom line is this...the acts we do actually make a difference! If you are down or thinking your life has little meaning in the grand scope of things, read this book. It will take you approximately 15 minutes, but could completely change your outlook on how important your life is!

And now for the legal stuff...
