Last night I attended a .NET meeting in Omaha.
The speaker was Brian Lagunas .
He talked about Prism .
He recommended XAML TV
for some videos on the topic.

"But let all who take refuge in you
be glad and exult forever.
Protect them, that you may be the joy
of those who love your name.
For you, O Lord, bless the just man,
you surround him with
the shield of your good will."
Psalms 5:11-12 or 12-13

The Lord watches over you.
He will protect you from harm.
He is your salvation.
Call on his name for help.
He is your joy.

Jesus taught,
"If you want to avoid judgment,
stop passing judgment.
Your verdict on others will be
the verdict passed on you."

Jesus, teach us how to live.

Jesus said,
"When the Son of Man comes in his glory,
escorted by all the angels of heaven,
he will sit upon his royal throne,
all the nations will be assembled before him."

Will you be ready?
Do you look forward to his return in glory?

Yesterday I watched lecture 4 .

"They then took away the stone and
Jesus looked upward and said:
'Father, I thank you for having heard me.
I know that you always hear me
but I have said this for the sake of the crowd,
that they may believe that you sent me.'"
John 11:41-42

Jesus needed to pray.
You need to pray.
Do you take/make time each day for prayer?
Today is Sunday.
It is a day of worship.
Attend church today.
Make the time to praise God.
Talk to your Father in heaven.

I listened to lecture 3 yesterday.
Professor John likes to throw candy
to members of the class that answer questions.
I learned that Python uses indentation
to group blocks of code.
For example an 'if' statement might look like this:
   age = 25
   if age > 21:
     print 'age is ', age

It is different than other computer languages.
Some languages use braces ( { } ) or semicolons ( ; )
to mark the blocks of code.
I loaded Python on my iMac PC also.
I don't care for the keyboard of the iMac.
I have a hard time hitting the right keys.

"You need to recall the words
of the Lord Jesus himself, who said,
'There is more happiness
in giving than receiving.'"

Give of your time and talents to others.
Be thoughtful.
Share your blessings.
God has been very good to you.
Be happy.

"Remain faithful until death and
I will give you the crown of life."

I watched this lecture from MIT yesterday
on Computer Science and Programming from spring 2011.
John Guttag does a good job at explaining the material.

Jesus said,
"Enough, then, of worrying about tomorrow.
Let tomorrow take care of itself.
Today has troubles enough of its own."

Do what you can today to serve the Lord.

You can take courses at MIT for free.
When I was a kid I dreamed of going to MIT.
I just took a look at the class
"Introduction to Computer Science and Programming"
It uses the Python computer language.
You could learn a lot.

Jesus said:
"A man of noble birth
went to a faraway country
to become its king, and then return.
He summoned ten of his servants
and gave them sums of ten units each,
saying to them,
'Invest this until I get back.'"
Luke 19:12-13

God has given you many talents.
What are you doing with them?
Use your talents to build the kingdom of God.
The Lord is with you.

"About noontime the next day,
as the men were traveling along
and approaching the city,
Peter went up to the roof terrace to pray."
