"Here You Are" On TV - today, and again, on Monday, March 29, 2PM

Today I found out about the Kennedy Krieger Institute and its amazing children's clinic in Baltimore. The National Geographic Channel was airing a documentary in its Rare Anatomy series, to be rebroadcast on Monday at 2PM Salt Lake City time.

It is a documentary about bone diseases, staring a very cute, and brave little boy named Jake suffering from Brittle Bone Disease. The trailer in the above link does not include the scene that shows Here You Are. The full documentary wmay eventually be posted by NGC on its video collection site, other wise the DVD can be ordered here. Buying this DVD I understand helps fund research and treatment for this disease.

The severity of diseases endured by so many of our children in our national children's clinics, the courage and patience of their parents, their doctors, and their caretakers are humbling to watch. If you have been following this blog you know that Here You Are has being donated to many children's hospitals from the beginning. I had not heard yet of the Kennedy Krieger Institute, though.

Imagine my surprise when my daughter called this morning informing me that she and her boyfriend who were watching this documentary, suddenly noticed Here You Are right there on TV! I will have to ask my math wizard sons about the chances of that happening, and then the chances of one of us coming across it on TV. These are the things that strike me as "miracles".

Knowing that Here You Are is finding its way to these brave parents and children warms my heart no end.

Our son was telling us this story this weekend. The six-year-old of a friend of his asked his Dad whether squirrels had a God. "Of course", Dad replied, to which, after a thoughtful pause, his six-year-old replied with astonishment: "A godless God!".

"What do you mean, a godless God?" Dad asked. "Well - if God is God, then he can't have a God", answered his clever little son.

Quite an insight, and intellectual leap for a six-year-old, but now Dad was getting a little nervous about who in school was filling his son's head with ideas of God, and even more worrisome - concepts of Godlessness.

"What have you been talking about in school, honey, and how did you learn about Godlessness, sweetheart?" Dad carefully inquired. "Well, you know - the Song!" little six-year-old explained: "God Less America."

"Here You Are" Number One Spiritual Children's Book On Amazon

Today someone wrote to me saying she was looking up Spiritual Children's books on Amazon, and the first one that popped up was Here You Are. This is really good news because it means it is the one selling the most. Every Sunday night I get an email from Amazon for an order of 2 - 12 books, depending on the season. This is quite a joy for me and I am very grateful to all those parents and grandparents out there who  are finding Here You Are and are reading it to their children. Thank you all!

A Picture's Worth A 1000 Words

As farfetched as Dr. Emoto's ideas may seem to some, I don't think they are. As we progress as a species no doubt we will have to a much larger extent think and communicate in pictures rather than words for the simple reason that the vast amount of human knowledge and information cannot be processed otherwise.

Is water the most likely medium for retaining and retrieving information? It already is, but we are not aware nor have we mastered how to use this. Who would have thought 100 years ago that fiberglass would be a carrier of vast and almost instant information around the globe? Maybe someone did but surely he or she would have been thought a fool.

As the saying goes "a picture is worth 1000 words". No wonder YouTube is such a success...

Reconsider what you think of as "just" water...or "just" words, for that matter...
