Flowers and Sparrows

A few days ago, I saw a group of little purple dots, scattered over a little patch of grass. I bent over to get a closer look, and discovered that those dots were actually really small flowers!

Seeing the small flowers reminded me of something comforting that Jesus said many years ago. Jesus was telling His people about God's love and how He will provide for our needs:

"Why worry about clothes? Look how the wild flowers grow. They don't work hard to make their clothes. But I tell you that Solomon with all his wealth wasn't as well clothed as one of them. God gives such beauty to everything that grows in the fields, even though it is here today and thrown into a fire tomorrow. He will surely do even more for you! Why do you have such little faith?" Matthew 6:28-30 (CEV)

And here's what Jesus had to say about those birds that fly over my head and land those really thin power lines:

"Look at the birds in the sky! They don't plant or harvest. They don't even store grain in barns. Yet your Father in heaven takes care of them. Aren't you worth more than birds?" Matthew 6:26 (CEV)

I have absolutely no idea what kind of flower I almost stepped on, but I can count that not only does my Heavenly Father know but He cares for me too!

Lights, Camera, Action!

Sabbath Tip #0005: "Lights, Camera, Action!"
by A Sabbath Blog

This week's idea is on making a Christian movie. Simply grab a video camera and start filming!

You can be as creative and as elaborate as you want. You could make a nature video, a Christian music video, a documentary on how your parents became Christians, a tour of your church, a Biblical reenactment, etc.....

Making a movie is a great way to get your message a cross to a large audience. After you've saved your movie, share your movie with your friends, neighborhood, Sabbath school, whoever! You might also want to upload it to the Internet. You can upload for free to websites such as YouTube, Guide Magazine, Insight Magazine, or A Sabbath Blog and have your film seen by people from around the world!*

________________
*Have your parents review your video for your safety. Obtain their permission and anyone in the video's permission before you upload it to the Internet!

Beanie Tunes


Beanie Tunes is a Christian comic strip series that can be found online at the Beanie Tunes website. It follows the adventures of characters at Beanston Junior High and Pike Elementary. These comics have Christian morals, having Bible verses through out the episodes. Though the editors of Beanie Tunes aren't payed to make the comics and do it on their free time, you can help them in their cause by purchasing special editions that aren't available on their website.

We wanted to learn more about the comics, so we chatted with the Beanie Tunes editors. Here are a few excerpts from the interview:

A Sabbath Blog: So, first off, tell me a little bit about these comics that you guys create...

Beanie Tunes: We lived most of our life in California, and it was there that the comics began. We had and still have a large collection of Beanie Babies, and the origins of Beanie Tunes lie in comics written about a core group of Beanies (Ty Beanie Babies) that we did every Sabbath at church or slightly afterward. They became quite popular and eventually were published in a local newspaper. Eventually, the comic expanded with new characters such as Scaly, a few more sharks, and many others, in addition to the creation of Season 2.

ASB: You have quite a few characters in your comics. Is there one main character, or are there a group of characters that are, indeed, the main characters?

BT: To answer your question, probably Hornsly, Mooch Junior, Rainbow, Inky, and Crunch are the main characters. There are [also] three central groups of characters at Beanston Junior High. One group is ‘Rainbow and Friends’, comprising of Rainbow, She-Rainbow, Iggy, and She-Iggy (Rainbow and She-Rainbow are not related; Iggy is She-Iggy’s older brother). ‘Hornsly and the Gang’ is another group, consisting of Hornsly, Tornsly, and Warnsly. ‘The Mooch Group’ stands in the middle of the conflict between Hornsly and Rainbow. We won’t mention the Pike Elementary groups yet because they haven’t been featured in the episodes. -- [ASB Note: You can read more about the characters here]

ASB: What do you hope to accomplish by having Beanie Tunes on the web?

BT: We hope to make them available to people through the Internet. By exposing the world to Christian values, we hope these comics will lead people accept Jesus Christ as their Saviour.

ASB: So, what's in store for Beanie Tunes (in the future)?

BT: It has been said that Beanie Tunes has seven seasons planned, although we will not confirm this. Odd seasons take place during the school year (in the comic), whereas even seasons happen in the summertime. Season Three will feature more underwater action at Pike Elementary (Inky and Crunch’s school).
