Red House Over Yonder... Blue Like Jazz

The Bible
He has made everything appropriate in its time. He has also set eternity in their heart, yet so that man will not find out the work which God has done from the beginning even to the end.
-- Ecclesiastes 3.11
The Analysis 
I have always loved the blues. I think I love it because it is a real expression of the natural longing for more that is built inside each of us. The Blues acknowledge my lack of satisfaction with who I am now & motivate me to improve. My old Sunday School teacher sent me this text just this morning:
You can change. None of us is the same person we were a year ago or a decade ago. Out bodies are changing--there's no denying hat. But our minds, hearts, habits, personalities and relationships are changing too. We just need to make sure we are changing for the better, that we're being transformed from glory to glory, that we're growing in the grace and knowledge of Christ. Those who refuse to change are not God-fearers, because those who love Him are changing every day. Don't be afraid to make some changes in your life, and don't be afraid to let Christ change you from within.
I don't know if that is an original quote or something he was passing on, but it struck me today. My wife passed on a challenge to me from the Blue Like Jazz promotional crew. It is a challenge to promote this movie in my sphere of influence. I have been thinking a lot about influence & how to exert it. Mostly, I'm infatuated with my Klout score (never mind that I have less Klout than my wife, who gets reblogged all the time on Tumblr). Selfish, I know. So I am doing this challenge because I really enjoyed the Blue Like Jazz book & am truly excited to see the movie. I have already promoted A Million Miles in a Thousand Years, & even promoted Don Miller's work from the pulpit (look for me, Chris Jimenez from 02-05-2012)! So passing out a few fliers is not going to kill me.

Here are the screen-shots of what I have done so far! BTW, I have a Tumblog too...
