God made you special and He loves you very much

A special Teddy Bear
A special Teddy Bear we’ve had even longer than we’ve been watching Veggie Tales

Maybe a decade ago, a friend recommended Veggie Tales videos. Skeptical, but with nothing to lose, I borrowed her video (yes, video). Transformational. Quickly collected every video they made, and pre-ordered every new release.

One of my favorite sayings, “God made you special and He loves you very much”. This is about way more than a cartoon.

Trust In Veggie Tails?

If A Picture's Worth 1,000 Words. Imagine A Movie!
If A Picture's Worth 1,000 Words. Imagine A Movie!

What do you use as a quick reference? You know, for locking in a story or a metaphor for something critical you expect from young children?

The older children get, the more there is to worry about (right?), like sleepovers at someone else’s place. You hope and pray that young boys will follow a good path and not stray too far from it.

Children have extremely limited experience in dealing with temptation, with peer pressure, and ultimately, they choose a path.

Our son (10) grew up watching Big Idea’s Veggie Tales. I pulled out the morale of the story from Rack, Shack & Benny last night: Do what you know to be right, even if everyone else isn’t.

Chapin asked me why I always use movies to make “philosophical” points. I smiled.

Which Is Better?

Build children or repair adults?

No brainer, isn’t it?

Then why are we so challenged to invest the time in children?

“Busy. Busy. Dreadfully busy. You’ve no idea what I have to do”. — Line from VeggieTales song

At the root of this challenge is me. And you. And every other adult with an opportunity to inspire a child by the power of our own example.

Z88.3 is the Best Radio Station

Is Z88.3 the best radio station in Central Florida?

No. It’s the best Contemporary Christian radio station in the world.

Tune in to 88.3 or 88.7 to listen here in Orlando.

You can also visit www.zradio.org from anywhere in the world to listen.

Either way, it’s a life-saver for me. Has been for years.

And not only a life saver, but a life enhancer.

Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂

PS. With God as my witness, I’d be a lesser person without the Z. Seriously.
