Total Eclipse of the Moon On February 20, 2008

Total Eclipse February 20, 2008Last night, I enjoyed the show that God provided for us in the sky above with the total eclipse of the moon. The lunar eclipse could be seen by people in South America and most of North America as well as parts of Europe, Africa and Western Asia. A lunar eclipse is caused when the Earth passes between the sun and the moon and the Earth's shadow covers part or all of the moon.

During last night's event, the moon took on a redish brown color. This is normal, for the moon will sometimes appear to be bright orange, blood red or dark brown in color. I took the picture you see with this blog entry in hopes to catch the color, but my camera could not pick up on the color of the moon.

For more information on the lunar eclipse goto NASA: Total Lunar Eclipse of February 20, 2008. On this page, NASA provides information on last night's eclipse and on eclipses in general. You can also see when future eclipses are going to occur and where you be able to see them through the year 2012.

Friendship Poem

This poem is from my friend Jo Anne in the Philippines.

If ever you need me,
I'll be right here,
To chase away the sadness,
And wipe away a tear.
If ever you need me,
I'll be two steps behind,
To follow in your footsteps,
And hear what's on your mind.
If ever you need me,
You'll never have to fear,
That your presence isn't important,
And your love isn't dear.
If ever you need me,
I'll always be around,
To bring back the laughter,
Where deep in your heart it's found.
You'll never have to worry,
For I'll always be here,
To chase away the sadness,
And wipe away a tear.
I am here for you!

~~Jo Anne Hipolito

Bible Reading Checklist

Okay the other day I was thinking about the Bible. I realized that there are parts of the Bible that I have not read. I have decided to read the Bible all the way through. I have not put a timeline on this project because I want to take my time and study some parts without rushing myself to get finished reading the Bible by a certain time. I want to come away with a better understanding of the Bible after I have finished read the whole Bible. To help me keep track of what I have read I have found this Bible Reading Checklist on the Internet. I here by challenge you the reading the whole Bible, too.

Okay for all of you who like YouTube I got a another site for you. I was listening the the John Tesh show the other night on the way to work the other night he said some about check out a video on God Tube. I have been checking the site out for the last few days. The video on this site are Christian related video. God Tube does not limit the time of the video to ten minutes like YouTube does. I found at least one video that was thirty minutes long.

Here are some samples of videos on God Tube:

Rapture - End Times

Oh Happy Day/ I've Found Jesus

This video is from the 2006 NC Apple Festival in Hendersonville, NC. The band is named Zealous Core and its members are my friends the Gesslers.

Southpaw - Baby Got Book (Official Music Video)

This music video is funny.

I hope you enjoy God Tube. Please leave me some comments to tell me want you think of the site.

Walk to the top of Corbin Mountain

February 5, 2008 was such a petty day I decided to take Rayna my dog for a walk to the top of Corbin Mountain. Corbin is the mountain on the back side of the land I live on and it is a nice walk to the top. Corbin sits on the state-line of North Carolina and South Carolina. There is a fire-tower, old ranger house, and cell tower on the top and not to say anything about the view of Upstate South Carolina. Below are some pictures that I took while on the walk to the top of Corbin Mountain.
