the coolest hymn recordings ever

http://www.myspace.com/davido2 check out I Surrender All and My Jesus I Love Thee. Amazing job, David. I'm hearing rumor that there's a hymns CD on the way from David. I can't wait.

also - here's some pretty dang cool drawings from the same artist. http://www.gigposters.com/designers.php?designer=27132

In Your Presence

i've got SO much i need to write about the things God has been showing me through these past few weeks with the hurricanes and some other junk, but i wanna just get this quick shot in - one piece of the puzzle for me has been the song "In Your Presence" by Charity Von. my daughter found the CD at the local LifeWay here and we bought it and track 5 is one i can listen to over and over and over. in fact i did put it on repeat on my itunes the other day - i must have listened to that song a good 20 times back-to-back-to-back before i decided to move on to another one.

the song is a huge help to me to remind me where my mind should be during all this mess. all the time, really.

in your presence i find comfort
in your presence i find peace
in your presence i surrender
Lord i give you all of me
and in your presence i fall on my knees
for you are worthy
in your presence i hear angels sing
holy holy is the lamb of God

it's worth the $0.99 on itunes to buy the song just to hear it.

"way 100 cool"

my 5-year-old Lincoln told me today that my phone was "way 100 cool." i was showing him how i can now watch the videos from our church website and even the live feed from church at the highland campus this morning. he was blown away that he could look at my phone and see and hear what was going on at church right now.

it's a new deal for me to be able to do it - thanks to Verizon's new broadband-whatever deal. i'm really loving it - Verizon really came thru with the bump up. thanks, Verizon.

I agree with Lincoln - it's way 100 cool.

big day today, bigger tomorrow

i'm not posting much right now - too busy with the hurricane relief effort. been working like crayhayhazy on the website for the coalition of local churches we're working alongside. you can see it at www.prccompassion.org.

i'm also helping to get content about the hurricane together for www.dinorizzo.com.

and we hit a big ol' whirlwind today when ABC announced they wanted to run their Good Morning America show Tuesday morning (now just hours away) from my church's campus in donaldsonville, LA where we've got a shelter for about 230 running. and also in the morning, Kevin Mawae is slated to be on Fox 'n Friends to talk about what he's got going in NY to help with Katrina relief.

so, be in prayer that these websites do what they're supposed to do as people are made aware of them. it has to be about God, not PRC Compassion or HPC or Dino Rizzo or Dan Ohlerking - or about Gov. Blanco, President Bush, or Mayor Holden. this has to be God to see us thru. and i think that is His plan in this - that we'd see Him alone as our sufficiency.

it's much easier to say than to live out.... until we actually do it.

just what i needed

got this from my brother in law yesterday. right on time for me.

Hey Dan,

In my quiet time today I really feel the Holy Spirit prompt me to write and let you know “that my purposes are being accomplished through this. Don’t fear, don’t worry, don’t dread but look forward in faith that this is a great opportunity for me to reach lots of lost and hurting people. Please choose to look at the hope of eternity and not the hopelessness of the temporary circumstances. Don’t be afraid… I love you and care for you greatly.”

Dan, I pray that these are words of encouragement to you as your sister and I love and are praying for you all a lot right now.

Love ya all,
