"You gave a song for our souls to sing
And Your life was the offering
Even death, it has lost its sting
Now we have forever!

No one, no one can take Your place
No life, no death, can separate
You love, You love has conquered the grave!"

As we ponder this day, Good Friday, I wanted to share this song and this band (I Am They) with y'all; their song have been such a blessing to me for the last two weeks or so since I first heard them. Some of my favorites of their music include "Awake My Love," "From the Day" "Here's My Heart," and "King of Love."

I hope to be like this father someday. In just a few moments, he brought back hope where it had been extinguished, not only for his son, but for all those listening.

Austin and all the surrounding areas have been heavily impacted by the storms today, with massive flooding going on. Watch this phone interview KVUE news has with a guy who, while in his car, was washed away by the flood. What's incredible is, while they're talking to him on the phone, they realize that's he's sitting 20 feet up a tree after bailing from his car. He says it's like he's in the middle of a lake!

He was eventually rescued after being in the tree for over 4 hours.

(And kudos to the guy for being a Boy Scout!)

Glad to hear you're OK. 20MPH for 200 miles is extremely stressful. Make sure to treat them to something extra special, once they arrive :-)

Tesla just started rolling out a software update to its cars that allows them to autonomously drive themselves (in some situations). Watch this guy's reactions to his first time driving without touching the wheel! I, for one, can't wait till all cars drive autonomously. That'll be the single biggest life-saving change humans have made in forever, as the number of car accidents will drop like crazy.

Note, Google's self driving cars have been doing this for a while, and many other automakers are starting their own implementations as well. Competition is a fantastic thing, in this case!

Here Comes the Moon

Here's my contribution to the #bloodmoon  shots! Unfortunately, when the actual blood moon happened, I was too busy doing school to get a shot of it (although I did manage to look at it briefly). But I some some shots last night!

By the way, I wish I could show you the RAW image; in it, you can see so many extra stars and galaxies, in different colors. But they were mostly all lost during the conversion to JPG. Does anyone know how to preserve details like that?

I just looked at this again zoomed in, you can see some of the stars in your image -- they just are very small and hard to see without zoom.

This may be one of The Piano Guys's best songs yet! It's a mix of This Is Your Fight Song and Amazing Grace. Bonus: bagpipes!

Let me just warn first, I was like, "Cool." But as the video went on, I was gasping and my mouth was wide open in shock. You might not want to watch this if you're eating.

The joy of the Lord is my strength!

Do you find strength in the things of the world or your flesh? If so, that strength is useless for everything that really matters in eternity. It's only when you realize that you're weak in yourself that you can find strength in Christ; when you rejoice in Him not only for what He's done for you, but just for Who He is!

Nehemiah 8:10b - "Do not grieve, for the joy of the LORD is your strength."
Psalm 28:7 - "The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him."

The joy of the Lord is my strength!
When sorrow comes my way
You are the shield around me
Always You remain
My courage in the fight

Christianity, Android, The Hobbit, Humor, Technology, AWANA
Hello! I'm Daniel Matthew James, nice to meet you! 

I'm a pretty easy-going, fun-loving guy. I'm a Christian and love the Lord and fellowship with other believers; I love technology, social media, volunteering at Awana (a worldwide church youth program), working with children, athletics, music, and lots more. I love my Nexus 4 and 7 and I spend a lot of time scouring tech blogs and tech news. Currently, I am in my junior year of Electrical/Computer engineering at The University of Texas at Austin.

One of my dreams is to someday work for Google, my favorite company. If you have any tips, please let me know! It'd be much appreciated.

If at all possible, I would like to ask you to not posting anything explicit, sexual, or otherwise offensive on my page. That includes language. Thanks!

PLEASE NOTE: if you follow me, it is quite likely that I will not follow you back unless you interact with my posts. Otherwise, it'd be impossible for me to keep up with the flow of information if I circled every random person that followed me. I'm looking for great relationships with y'all!

I went here today to view the musical theater presentation of The Sound of Music, and it was fantastic! If you come to watch any of the shows, be sure to bring a blanket (plastic blankets/tarps are not allowed for some reason) that can get a little dirty. And you'll probably want some bug spray as well. Get ready for an awesome time!

It's a great park; I go there every week to play Ultimate Frisbee on the spacious field. The facilities are great.

Excellent service! I bought a '11 Versa from here a few months back, and it was great; I was able to get an excellent price for it after a lot of bargaining. I just went again today to get my oil changed, and their service was fantastic. The guy at the desk (Matt, I believe) was quite friendly and humorous. The waiting room was comfortable and well-stocked with coffee, donuts, and other things. I'm considering buying another Versa now. If you go here, ask for Jacob; he's great.

Great church; I come here every week for the AWANA program, which is the best in the state (possibly the country!). The facilities are fantastic, especially in the new sanctuary building.

I went to this Starbucks for the first time because I had a coupon for a free drink, it being my birthday today. The service was great; I got my free drink with no questions asked. The building is fantastic and spacious; there are lots of tables, chairs, and couches to sit on, as well as free Wifi. You should try the Chocolate Cookie Crumble Frappuccino, it's fantastic!
