Despite my terribly busy day (2 b-day parties, post office, grocery store, book store, Walmart, cooking 2 lasagnas, hemming and strapping the grad formal… whew) I sat down to eat lunch and decided to have a stab at the AZ Republic… our newspaper. I get the paper during the week only because it was cheaper that way for my three Sunday papers for Coupon $ense. So usually I don’t read them. But today I must have been feeling intellectually stagnant and opened the wealth of verbiage. It was a substantial news day, unlike most “shot cat” and “drug ring” and “road closed” type days.
Substantial News Story #1: There has been an uncontacted tribe of Indians with huts, spears and not much clothing discovered in the Amazon on the Peru/Brazil border. Story and pictures: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080530/ap_on_re_la_am_ca/brazil_indians And they paint themselves different colors. Cool! This amazes me, that we haven’t found everybody yet. With the heat-sensitive apparatus available that can find a fugitive hiding in a dog house… FROM a helicopter… why haven’t we found all the people groups yet? I read with interest and thought of Nate Saint and the End of the Spear movie. The article stated that contact wouldn’t be made due to flying spears when planes neared and because our germs would wipe them all out. It neglected to mention that they need Jesus too.
Substantial News Story #2: (OK, not nearly as substantial as #1) There is a blog called www.ifoundyourcamera.blogspot.com where you can post pictures from a digital camera or card that you find. OR if you misplace yours, you can pray that the finder knows about the blog and posts a few of your precious lost pictures so you can again have them securely in your obviously slippery hand. The success stories are also listed, and they circle the globe… guy#1 from Kentucky loses his camera in Florida… guy #2 picks it up and takes it home to the Netherlands… guy #3, a friend of guy #1, lives in Australia and recognizes guy #1 on the blog and VOILA! The Florida pictures make it home to Kentucky. See, there are good people left on Earth.
