If youa€™ve ever driven in Italy, youa€™ve been a player in the game Stump the Foreign Driver. The monks who kept viticulture alive during the Dark Ages were much the same, pouring their abbey wine into ceramic flasks that were carried a few steps to the refectory table. This began to change when noble families started storing premium wine in glass bottles around 1600. Paper labels first emerged in the mid-1700s, initially used by champagne houses eager to distinguish themselves from their competitors; this required a means of identification that wouldna€™t fall off during transport. Today therea€™s plenty of regulation dictating what wine labels should saya€”alcohol level, importer, pregnancy warnings, etc. Classico No, ita€™s not a recipe like a€?classic ragu sauce.a€™ Ita€™s a location, as in the original, historic zone where the wine was first produced and gained fame. DOCG wines tend to be more expensive because of the costlier practices stipulated by the rulebook, such as smaller yields, longer aging, and maturation in wood. But herea€™s a tip for bargain hunters: Every winery that makes a red-wine DOCG will also have a a€?lessera€™ wine meant to be drunk young.
Until they make a GPS system for wine labels, learning these basic rules of the road should take you a long way.
ClassicoA  No, ita€™s not a recipe like a€?classic ragu sauce.a€™ Ita€™s a location, as in the original, historic zone where the wine was first produced and gained fame. DOCGA  Italya€™s wine classification system warrants an essay in itself, but here are the basics for buyers: The top level, denominazione di origine controllata e garantita or DOCG (denomination of controlled and guaranteed origin)a€”clearly marked by a neck banda€”must adhere to a stringent set of rules that dictate practices in the vineyard and cellar.
Press Publish is a weekly conversation with the people building the future of news: journalists, technologists, entrepreneurs, and more.
A random sample has a margin of error due to sampling, but every quantification has error for one reason or another. What you see in the data cannot contradict what you see in the street, so you always need to look in the street. Yet most journalists think little about accountability for their predictions, or the predictions they repeat.
The book was released at a launch event Thursday night featuring panelists Meredith Broussard of New York University, Mark Hansen of the David and Helen Gurley Brown Institute for Media Innovation at Columbia University, and Scott Klein of ProPublica. And on Thursday, my colleague Shan Wang published a roundup of how publishers like NPR, The Wall Street Journal, and The Center for Public Integrity are reshaping their interactives for mobile devices. It’s a fact of life that kids put their parents to the test with their boundless and unpredictable curiosity.
My daughter’s question forced me to take my fingers off the keyboard and think for a minute. Next, let’s go back in time zillions of years, to the era when none of the planets in the solar system existed. Something interesting happened then: little by little, gravity made these little particles move closer and closer to each other.
Good design isn’t about embellishment but about structuring information to enable understanding.
If words are sometimes useless by themselves, so are charts, maps, diagrams, and illustrations. All scientific knowledge that we have of this world, or will ever have, is as an island in the sea of mystery.
Finding the right answers to good questions makes us capable of posing even better and more profound ones. Good data visualizations and explanation infographics communicate information and, as a result, they can increase our understanding.
Data visualization can help us both to understand complex issues a bit better, but also to provide images to debate about, to refer back to, and sometimes just to meditate over… I want [people] to use the visualizations I provide as starting points for their own explorations… Consequently, any serious visualization of a sufficiently complex topic should always aim at exposing the complexity, the inner contradictions, the manifold nature of the underlying phenomenon. Stefaner doesn’t reject traditional linear narrative techniques outright, but he prefers to build interactive displays that enable discovery. A few weeks ago, I stumbled upon a graphic designed by data scientist Gilad Lotan (Figure I.9) that further illustrates how the communication and exploration dimensions of visualization design complement each other. In the past few years, services that promise to increase your standing on social media are thriving. The answer to the second question is in the visualization that Lotan designed with the data he collected. Alberto Cairo is Knight Chair in Visual Journalism in the School of Communication at the University of Miami. The study provides some useful insights for news data visualization, and it serves as a good reminder that audiences need some help when interpreting visual information. This study, which is based on an experiment involving about 150 students, suggests that journalists who engage more with audiences on Twitter increase their perceived credibility. This study looks at how journalists might promote better, richer, and more reasoned civic discourse about news by playing a stronger role in comment threads.

Quartz and Vocativ are by no means the only publishers seeing the value in charts and data viz, obviously.
The collection of charts has a similar feel to the old stock tables newspapers used to run in the business section. The app is a good example of ways media companies can build new products around their existing content. The dashboard was created by economics reporter Emily Cadman, with interactive design editor Steven Bernard and developer Tom Pearson.
The dashboard is the latest in a string of tools released by the FT to increase reader engagement and reach out to new — and maybe more importantly, nonsubscribing — audiences. Quartz editor Kevin Delaney estimates his journalists created close to 4,000 charts last year in the service of stories about the global economy. Now Quartz is pushing further into graphic territory with Atlas, a new platform for sharing and creating charts. This is the second data visualization franchise Quartz has built, following the development of the open source Chartbuilder tool. Each chart on Atlas gets its own page, with social tools, context, and tags, making it easier to share or dig deeper into topics.
Chartbuilder is already popular with media companies, with places like NPR, The Wall Street Journal, FiveThirtyEight, and The New Yorker taking advantage of the open source app. Lauf said once Atlas becomes its own platform, they expect outside users will help improve it, as has happened with the code for Chartbuilder.
Delaney said their focus is not just on the news, but on developing new technology around journalism.
The interactive is based off data from a new study by Harvard economists Raj Chetty and Nathaniel Hendren that explores how community can influence a child’s future income. Gregor Aisch, a graphics editor at the Times, told me they decided to use readers’ IP addresses to get a rough sense of their location. As a practical matter, Aisch said asking readers to supply information can sometimes cut down on their desire to use a news app.
In this case, most of the templates are similarly written in a style almost reminiscent of Mad Libs, with the bot swapping in data determined by a readers location. GaugeMap aims to help to look after and improve the natural environment by allowing these users to access this data on the move, wherever they are. Two of the biggest trends in news today: the rise of mobile and the rise of data visualization. If you want to do better, check out MobileVis, a site built by Bocoup data viz whiz Irene Ros to assemble good examples of data visualizations that work well on mobile devices.
Vertical Bar Charts: When using bar charts in portrait mode, stack your bar chart bars vertically. Stack Table Cells: When needing to display tables that have more than a couple of columns consider stacking cells vertically within each row. Carousel Instead of Tabs: When allowing users to switch between different displays, instead of using tabs (which require a lot of horizontal space,) consider using a carousel with next and previous buttons. Fix Tooltips to Area of Screen: When displaying information on touch, designate an area on screen that will update accordingly. There is a lot to praise in what all those ventures — and others that will appear in the future — are trying to achieve. At first, the current popularity of the new wave of data journalism seemed to be a good antidote to the epidemic of hardball punditry and tomfriedmanism that has plagued the news for ages.
But I have to confess my disappointment with the new wave of data journalism — at least for now. First, the piece on bike helmets is an example of cherry-picking and carelessly connecting studies to support an idea.
Second, using news reports on kidnappings in Nigeria as a proxy variable of actual kidnappings is risky. Fourth, will the 2015 El Nino event make more Americans accept that climate change is real? The main challenge that FiveThirtyEight and Vox (and, to a lesser extent, The Upshot) face is that they overpromised before they were launched but underdelivered after they went public. It’s hard to produce a constant stream of good data journalism on the cheap and with a small team. It goes like this: Youa€™re barreling along the autostrada at 110 km and suddenly the highway forks. Once they discovered that aging can enhance wine, bottles started evolving, going from bulbous to cylindrical, which allowed for stacking in storage.
Regular wineries followed suit, at first writing the vintage or place of origin by hand on a blank paper label.
Castles, landscapes, floral motifs, medallions, escutcheons, art nouveau flourishes, and all manner of typography tumbled forth onto the tiny paper canvases. Nonetheless, sometimes the simplest things arena€™t cleara€”like whether the word in large typeface refers to the producer, the wine, or the cru. Therea€™s no regulation for font size, so producers are free to emphasize whatever they want. In Italy, these prestigious vineyards are often located on the top of a hill, where therea€™s the most sunlight and the best drainage. Ita€™s usually preceded by the grape variety and followed by the town: Vernaccia di San Gimignano, Morellino di Scansano, Fiano di Avellino.
So if you dona€™t happen to know that Canale is in Piedmont, get out your smart phone and google it.
Rules vary by zone, but generally it means an additional year of aging and an extra point of alcohol. It often comes from younger vines or less ideal vineyard locations or is matured in stainless steel rather than costly oak.
The length of a table cannot be measured much finer than the tick marks on whatever ruler you use, and the ruler itself was created with finite precision.
Stray warns of reading significance in data when it’s just pure coincidence, or not properly eliminating other possible explanations for why some data looks the way it does.
You can apply the idea of ruling out hypotheses to any type of reporting work, using any combination of data and non-data sources. The conclusions from your data work should be supported by non-data work, just as you would not want to rely on a single source in any journalism work. On Monday, Ken Doctor wrote about The New York Times’ redesign of its smartphone app. My memory of Newtonian physics was a bit rusty, but I was sure that the fact that planets keep rotating is related to the laws of motion. When you throw a ball (Figure I.1), it tends to move forward and spin around its own center.
No good infographic or data visualization — we’ll learn the difference between the two soon — can be based on deficient data and analysis. Any act of communication involves a controlled reduction of complexity, up to the point when reducing matters further would hurt the integrity of the information.
That said, aesthetic appeal is a worthy goal, as it can help make our messages more attractive and, as a consequence, more effective. It is in the combination of words (spoken or written) and visuals that the magic of understanding often happens. After I finished the explanation for the second time, my daughter remained silent for a few seconds. Quite the contrary is true: the more we learn, the more aware we become of the gaps in our knowledge. I like to provide users with a structured way to explore a complex phenomenon on their own terms, in a sensually rich mosaic of media and facts rather than a pre-digested narrative with a surprise at the end.
The researchers conduct lab experiments with a variety of real-world graphics, including many from news organizations, and find that titles and text really help viewers interpret visuals and then recall information afterwards.
The strength of the research is that it leverages a real-world field study and randomization to pinpoint effects. Quartz noted earlier this month that 42 percent of its ad revenue now comes from readers on mobile devices. The site published almost 4,000 of them in 2014, and over the summer, Quartz unveiled Atlas, a home and search engine for all of its charts (which users can download and embed).
Since [chief content officer Gregory] Gittrich came on board in January, Vocativ has shifted its strategy to visual storytelling. Even better, the assemblage of data here gets updated automatically, along with links to the sources of data and corresponding FT stories to financial topics.


Products like FastFT and FT Antenna, which was launched last year, are focused on aggregating top stories of interest to FT readers. They quickly convey facts as well as authority, because numbers and lines on a grid have a way of saying look at this important thing right now.
Atlas is a clearinghouse for all the charts produced by Quartz, giving readers options to embed or download versions of the image file itself as well as the underlying dataset. So rather than take a screenshot from a report on media consumption, I can pull up something like this from Atlas. In the short time since Quartz’ arrival, the site has quickly made charts a staple of its reporting. Seward estimates that almost half of all stories produced by Quartz have charts, which is why they’ve invested in building tools to make it easier for anyone to make visualizations, regardless of their experience.
Eventually they would like to make Atlas available to other users as well, providing a home for other companies to upload and share their charts.
In a parallel universe, it’s possible the global business site from Atlantic Media would have been called Atlas. They’ve recently started experimenting with Facebook video and launched Actuality, a new podcast collaboration with Marketplace. That’s stemmed from looking at their own needs in the newsroom and seeing how that could serve wider audiences. So when the team at The Upshot wanted to put together a companion interactive piece, they set out to answer the question many readers would ask: What does that look like where I live?
The authors found that a child’s chances of stepping out of poverty can improve depending on where they are raised. Past projects have shown that asking people to enter their Zip code automatically guarantees that a large chunk of people won’t use it, he said.
The Upshot team decided to use prose templates that could be rewritten by a bot based on the data specific to where you live and your neighboring counties. Still, there is some flexibility, the story structure allows for optional sentences that provide more specific insight into an individual county, Cox said.
Users can retrieve live data on actual river levels via the website, or by following the new, dedicated Twitter accounts that GaugeMap has established for each of the Environment Agency‘s 2,400+ river level monitoring stations they may be interested in. For instance, the accounts don’t seem to be smart enough to automatically alert when the water gets dangerously high.
One could imagine a local news organization gathering together data like this and pushing it out through neighborhood focused social media accounts, automatically and without human intervention. Too many beautiful data visualizations are designed with a big desktop browser window in mind, not the smaller screen of an iPhone or an Android phone.
Journalists are known for being allergic to math and to the scientific method; some even proudly boast about it. They promised journalism based on a rigorous pondering of facts and data, but they have offered some stories based on flimsy evidence — with a consequent pushback from readers. Theya€™re not like American wanderers who transfer jobs at the drop of a hat and vacation in different spots every year, driving hundreds of miles without anxiety thanks to idiot-proof signage like I-75 South.
But glass bottles were not sufficiently elegant for lordly dining; wine came to the table in crystal decanters. With the invention of lithography in 1798, a whole new chapter opened up, and modern labels were born. Here again it pays to get acquainted with some regional or dialect words, in this case indicating a€?top of a hilla€?: Bricco, sorA®, and poggio are the most common. In practice, there are plenty of ho-hum DOCG bottles out there, and an equal number of stellar IGTs (indicazione geographica tipicaa€”the lesser category that most pricey Super Tuscans fall into).
So Barolo producers will also make a plain nebbiolo, Brunello di Montalcino wineries a simpler sangiovese, and Amarone estates a straightforward Valpolicella. Every physical sensor has noise, limited resolution, calibration problems, and other unaccounted variations. Are there really 536,348 people in your hometown, as the number on the “Welcome To …” sign suggests?
The concept of triangulation in the social sciences captures the idea that a true hypothesis should be supported by many different kinds of evidence, including qualitative evidence and theoretical arguments. How many financial reporters repeat analysts’ guesses without ever checking which analysts are most often right? Here are some of the questions that I got from them while writing these lines, followed by my thoughts and the actual answers I gave them. I dusted a couple of popular science books from my shelves and also looked for some articles on the Internet.
The faster we throw the ball and the heavier it is, the more momentum, or impetus, it carries.
The quality of your graphics depends fundamentally on the quality of your reporting or research, not just on how good a graphic designer you are. I adapted the message to my audience by getting rid of jargon and equations, but I respected the essence of the facts and my daughter’s intelligence.
If you allow me a brief digression, this is the reason why I believe that we should teach our kids to love not knowledge per se, but learning. A graphic may tell you a compelling story, but it can also invite you to expand the shoreline of wonder in ways that its creators didn’t predict. In 2009, he partnered up with the Bergstrom lab in the biology department at the University of Washington to create Eigenfactor, a project that visualizes citation patterns between scientific journals. What you’ll get from this graphic depends on the knowledge that you had before facing it. Lotan wanted to answer two questions: first, does buying fake followers lead to more real followers? Being part of a virtual community, the nodes are strongly connected and close to each other.
It’s not possible to become a professional visualization designer without learning how to overcome them.
But it’s intriguing to contemplate how the very act of replying to the audience itself may bolster the standing of journalists.
If you’re looking for indicators on GDP growth or currency markets, even construction output, the FT collects it all in one place. The company also launched FirstFT a morning email briefing on stories from the FT and others around the web. We have the data, so we might as well let people download it and use it as they wish,” Seward said. Seward said the name was one of the final contenders they considered before landing on Quartz.
They also brought an iPhone app to market, Flags, an emoji keyboard specifically for, well, you can probably guess. Times graphics editor Amanda Cox said they wanted to cut out the unnecessary steps between readers and the information they want.
Sharp-eyed readers can see the changes on the page if you enter another county while reading the story.
Text becomes unreadable, interactions become untappable, and a lovely experience becomes unusable. Or that we can predict the year when a majority of Americans will reject the death penalty (hint: 2044)?
A few traditional news organizations have followed suit, either creating their own in-house operations (The New York Times’ The Upshot) or strengthening existing efforts. Many in our profession still stick to flawed practices, such as asking the same questions to two or more sources and then just reporting their answers, without weighing the evidence and then pointing out which opinion is better grounded. You cannot assert that there are more kidnappings just because the media is running more stories about them. 48: a€?Whoever receives this child in my name receives me, and whoever receives me receives him who sent me. No, Italians stick close to mamma their whole lives and return to the same beach every August, giving it no more thought than a migratory bird. So a Tuscan consumer doesna€™t need a label to tell him that Santa€™ Antimo is in Tuscany, or a Piemontese that the Colline Novaresi are north of Turin. However, wineries tend to have their Reserves spend that extra year in oaka€”often in new barrique.
Humans are never completely consistent in their categorizations, and the world is filled with special cases. The future is very hard to know, but standards of journalistic accuracy apply to descriptions of the future at least as much as they apply to descriptions of the present, if not more so. They should be encouraged to cherish the very quests they undertake, not just their products. To me, besides the striking beauty of this Sankey diagram, its central message is clear: modern neuroscience is the result of the confluence of several disciplines. As a journalist, I can be standing on a different place on the shoreline of wonder than a scientist. We can tell stories with graphics, but we can also let people build their own stories with them. But overall, it stood as an important contribution that set the agenda for more discussion of algorithms and impacts.
Interestingly, the economic dashboard is available to readers outside the FT’s paywall, at least for the time being. If you think I’m exaggerating, read this recent and infuriating Washington Post op-ed, which gets causality wrong, is oblivious of ecological fallacies, misinterprets sources, and ends with a coarse, insulting, and condescending line. Gladwellism— deriving grand theories from a handful of undersubstantiated studies — may be popular nowadays, but it’s still dubious journalism. It might be that you’re seeing more stories simply because news publications are increasingly interested in this beat. Unknown unknowns, confounding variables, and black swans can kill any simplistic prediction. If you dona€™t happen to know that your destination lies towards one or the other, you lose.
A plaque on a chain identifying the winea€™s provenance would be hung around the decanter's neck. These are inherited from times past, when peasants would give names to hills, patches of woods, parcels of landa€”their verbal maps, in essence. So the question of whether youa€™ll prefer a Reserva over the winerya€™s regular wine is a matter of taste. And I’ve never seen a database that didn’t have a certain fraction of corrupted or missing or simply nonsensical entries, the result of glitches in increasingly complex data-generation workflows.
In the case of predictions it’s especially important to be clear about uncertainty, about the limitations of what can be known. If we throw our imaginary green ball, it is likely that it will take millions and millions of years to stop moving forward. The release of the economic dashboard comes a week after Pearson agreed to sell the FT to Japanese publisher Nikkei. Over time, these became elaborate artworks, crafted from silver, mother of pearl, ivory, and porcelain. For consumers, the easiest trick to figuring out the producer is to look on the back label. A cru is generally the winerya€™s top wine, the one that offers the most distinctive personality and sense of place.
It depends on your feelings about oak and whether you go for the vanilla, mocha, spice, or cedar flavors that barrique often lends to wine. If therea€™s one whose Barolo you swoon over, chances are youa€™ll also like their more affordable Nebbiolo Langhe. Or that the 2015 El Nino event may increase the percentage of Americans who accept climate change as a reality? In the fine print, youa€™ll see Imbottigliato alla€™ origine daa€¦ or a€?estate bottled by [name],a€? and there you have it.
Youa€™ll pay more, but youa€™re getting a unique, terroir-based wine, not a cookie-cutter beverage.
This is the main message revealed by transforming thousands of data points into a visual shape. Friction is a word we use to describe an interesting phenomenon: the air and the ground absorb the momentum that the ball carries. A Soy 44 pct planted vs 61 ave.A Iowa and Illinois both 40 pct planted vs 83 and 53 pct ave. It must past inspection at the laboratory and the tasting panel, showing that it fits the mold.

Help me boldly claim my full capacity for your use.a€? ------------- Donna Givlera€”quoting Katie Brazelton of Saddleback Church in her devotional book titled a€?Praying for Purpose, for Womena€?. Everyone who lives in me and believes in me will never die.a€?1 Corinthians Chapter 15, vs. 42: Our earthly bodies are planted in the ground when we die, but they will be raised to live forever.
27: For you will not leave my soul among the dead or allow your Holy one to rot in the grave. 2: The leaders were very disturbed that Peter and John were teaching the people that through Jesus there was a resurrection of the dead.
11: I want to suffer with him, sharing in his death, so that one way or the other I will experience the resurrection from the dead.
It proved that he was God and that He had power even over His own death and Satana€™s dominion.
God can resurrect our lives, our dreams, and our visions if we ask him to or if it is His will for us. If we have a dream or vision and we lose sight of it we can gain our sight back if we ask Him in prayer. She continued her life style and left her son with babysitters while she partied and enjoyed life (she thought).
One day, depressed of how her life was going, she drove past our church and stopped in on a whim. We sponsored her that Christmas and had much joy running around buying her son Jared presents.
Over the next two years we connected a couple more times and gave her encouragement when we seen her. Last year we gave her a gift card for a restaurant so that she and Jared could have a nice meal out together.
She now has a good full time job with benefits, her son is doing fantastic in school, and she is looking exceptionally healthy and emotionally stable now. For she took the courage in her slow death of life and laid all her hope at the foot of the cross.
My wife and I thank God that he let us participate, even if it was very little, in her re-birth. Shortly after the dream, we were visiting YWAM in Lebanon and they were showing us their prayer tent that they use in Lancaster and Cape Cod. This was with the hope that someone would step up to the plate and donate a space to erect it.
However, recently the pastors of the Gathering Place (a project to help people with Aids) asked us to help bring CAP some clothes this winter. Just open your mouth and ask.a€?A a€?Even though your promise may be postdated, remember whose signature is on the checka€? Pastor Pop-Pop 11-8--09.

A Christian artist once said that when she was in another country and away from her Church, she would sit and pray alone and have communion by herself to remind her of her faith. That inspired my wife and me to do it occasionally by ourselves and with some of our Amish friends. It can be about your body, mind, soul, family, friends, healing needed, finances, challenges, or anything that you wish.
Turn away from your former self, study in the Word (the Bible) and find yourself a good Christian Church that will support you and help you grow in your faith.
The Son being Jesus Christ who died on the cross at Calvary and shed his blood for our sins. I believe that since I now accept Him as my Lord and Savior that I have been washed clean of my sins and guilt by his blood. Jesus, I love you.a€? A If you prayed this simple prayer, you are saved and re-born in Him.
We are going to drown!a€? He replied, a€?You of little faith, why are you afraid?a€? Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm. The eyes of the Lord are upon those who love him; he is their mighty shield and strong support, a shelter from the heat, a shade from the noonday sun, a guard against stumbling, a help against falling. Although I own and study from many various different Bible translations, I personally normally use the NAB version.
Occasionally I like to read some of the a€?missing books of the Biblea€? sometimes called the Apocrypha.
They include the books of the books of Baruch, Judith, both Maccabees, Sirach, Tobit and the book of Wisdom.
If youa€™re Amish (I do have some Amish readers), you may find these books in an earlier version of the King James printing. Any way, I was reading the book of Sirach and through some of the verses it was put on my heart that I treated this person somewhat wrongly and it could have been done through ambition or pride of mine. I immediately broke down and confessed this sin to Jesus and asked for Goda€™s forgiveness. However, I will declare that the Lord has closed a door but he will surely open a new and better one. I choose to believe this truth and not the news media and evil spirits who would much rather us to believe that this bad economy, unemployment, and world affairs will defeat us. He was led by the Spirit in the wilderness, where he was tempted by the devil for forty days. The Scriptures say, a€?People do not live by bread alone.a€™a€? Then the devil took him up and revealed to him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.
12: For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. It is good for us to know the Scriptures and write some down to pray and declare a€?in Jesusa€™ namea€™ when we are being attacked. When you are in the battles of life, say a verse or two out loud and declare it over your life in Jesusa€™ name.
Tell Satan to, a€?Get out of my life, body, mind, and soul and leave me alone in Jesusa€™ namea€? And use the arrows against him. Have mercy on me and hear my prayer.Go away, all you who do evil, for the Lord has heard my weeping. He rescued me from my powerful enemies, from those who hated me and were too strong for me. I will thank the Lord because he is just; I will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High. My enemies retreated; they staggered and died when you appeared.Turn and answer me, O Lord my God! Dona€™t let my enemies gloat, saying, a€?We have defeated him!a€? Dona€™t let them rejoice at my downfall.Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Protect my life from my enemiesa€™ threats.But God himself will shoot them with his arrows, suddenly striking them down. Pray and think on this thing called freedom, which we take for granted but is being eroded away. 37-40: Then He said to him (a Pharisee), a€?Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. 21: The one who pursues righteousness and faithful love will find life righteousness, and faithful love. Many relatives were coming to our home to partake in the golden turkey and all the other foods and treats my wife prepared. So I will not be spending Thanksgiving having dinner around a table with my family like you are going to. If people like you would not patronize this store on holidays and make sure that you have all your stuff the day before, it would be unlikely that they would stay open. It also made me think about all the other stores that are open on these days and the countless others that have to work those days and cannot have an enjoyable time like some of the rest of us. And dona€™t forget to thank them for being there if you just cannot bear not to go to the store for that a€?emergencya€? item. 37-38: On the last day, the climax of the festival, Jesus stood and shouted to the crowds, a€?Anyone who is thirsty may come to me!
For the Scriptures declare, a€?Rivers of living water will flow from his hearta€™.a€?Matthew Chapter 11, vs.
On one day before his memorial service when we were all there at his home, his daughter went out in the backyard by her self. She was walking around in the back yard and my other brother and I decided to go out and comfort her. She said that she looked up in the sky (it was blue and full of clouds that day) and, a€?I saw a very large white hand that seemed to reach down to mea€?. She stated that she felt it was her daddya€™s hand and because of this she felt better knowing that he was still watching over her. We may go through many troubles and trials in our lives but God will always be with us and never forsake us. 12-13: If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them goes astray, will he not leave the ninety-nine in the hills and go and search of the stray? And if he finds it, amen, I say to you, he rejoices over it more than over the ninety-nine that did not stray. After a few days, the younger son collected all his belongings and set off to a distant country where he squandered his inheritance on a life of dissipation. When he had freely spent everything, a severe famine struck that country, and he found himself in dire need. So he hired himself out to one of the local citizens who sent him to his farm to tend the swine. Coming to his senses he thought, a€?How many of my fathera€™s hired workers have more than enough food to eat, but here am I, dying from hunger.
