B.B. King Museum

One of my favorite events during this past school year was going to the B.B. King Museum. When we first arrived the museum didn’t look like your typical museum. That’s because it was the warehouse were B.B. King first got started. One part of the museum is 108 years old!Before we started the tour we watched a movie about B.B. King. Then we started he tour. For a class assignment we had to do a scavenger hunt. We learned many things from doing that assignment. One of the ex-bits I like the most was this bus that we could watch another movie about B.B.. Another ex-bit was a guitar made of bottle caps. Then afterwards we shopped at the gift store then left for Crystals restaurant. The food there amazing! After we left there we left for Grenada. While we were heading back we had the chance to see on of the places that was in the help.

Zechariah 9:9

Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion! Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, Righteous and having salvation, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.

Zechariah 9:9

Matthew 26:39

Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, “My Father, if it possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.”

Matthew 26:39

Matthew 23:37-40

Jesus replied, ” ‘ Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’  This is the first and greastest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your meighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.

Matthew 23:37-40

Daniel Radcliffe, the actor famous for playing Harry Potter, turned 23 on Monday.

Starring in the eight film adaptations of the best-selling book series by J.K. Rowling, Radcliffe truly brought the title character to life. Since his role as the famous boy wizard, the young actor has forged an unconventional path towards a serious acting career, starring in everything from a twisted psychological play to a romantic comedy.

Radcliffe has embodied and shaped our understanding of Harry Potter. From reading the books, I had always envisioned Harry as stubborn, impulsive, burdened by a Messiah complex, moody when older, yet always courageous and loyal. In the movies, Radcliffe portrays all of these traits, but adds innocent charm to the boy wizard. Harry seems steady, serious, and strong-willed when he battles Voldemort’s incarnations in the first films, but the actor’s wide blue eyes, short stature, delicate cheeks, and circular glasses remind us how young the wizard is. Even in the bleak final film, Radcliffe steps towards Voldemort shakily, hesitantly. The actor physically emphasizes how much Harry is playing everything by ear – an important detail that makes him so relatable and believable as a teenage hero.

Post-Potter, Radcliffe has proven himself to be beyond maturity. Like the overburdened wizard himself, Radcliffe seems to have grown up too fast — he has already forced himself to stop drinking to prevent alcoholism. Yet professionally, he has not become a degenerate child star. On the contrary, Radcliffe has committed himself to a serious acting career. He has strayed from typical teen films; his post-Potter films include horror/thriller The Woman in Black and Beat poetry film Kill Your Darlings. In his theater debut, he won critical praise for the psychological stage drama Equus, in which he portrayed a 17-year old that blinds six horses with a spike and he went completely naked for an episode of religio-erotic worship to a horse. But he is not a fun-killer — he has starred in the comedic musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and will be in the upcoming romantic comedy, F Word. Rather than devising a career strategy, Radcliffe is true to his artistic interests, choosing only quality projects that grab his attention. His creative spirit goes beyond drama — as a bookworm, he spends most of his money on books, he writes poetry, and he publishes short stories; he appreciates underground and punk rock music.

Radcliffe, with his definitive portrayal of Harry Potter, was the heart of the Harry Potter films. While he has yet to separate entirely from the wizard, Radcliffe has proved that he is becoming a serious artistic force.

MIDLAND—When Brian “Head” Welch left the heavy metal band Korn in 2005, the announcement triggered significant speculation as people wondered what led the rock star out of the darkness and into the light.

During his tenure as Korn’s guitarist, the group earned Grammy awards and sold more than 30 million albums internationally, but Welch paid a high price for success. Wild parties, drugs and alcohol made his life spin out of control and left him feeling completely empty inside.

No matter what he did, nothing could fill the void in his life—until he found Jesus.

Welch had an eye-opening experience of what his life was becoming after his wife no longer could care for their young daughter because of the effects of drugs.

Desperate to find help, Welch visited a church service.

“I remember crying out to God that night saying: ‘Jesus, if you are real like that pastor said, then you’ve got to take these drugs from me.  Come into my life. Come into my heart. Search me right now. Search my heart. You know that I want to quit these drugs. You know that I want to be a good dad to this kid. She is going to lose me if I don’t quit. I need your help.'”

During the weeks that followed, Welch continued performing with Korn and struggled with his decision to give his life to Christ. However, Welch knew he needed to change his lifestyle and come clean. One day while praying about his decision, he felt compelled to throw out all his drugs and quit the band.

Realizing he had been given a second chance at life, Welch wanted to spend it living for Christ.

“When Christ came into my life, I gained a new understanding of life,” Welch said. “We were created to live for him and to be with him. It is the most incredible feeling, being exactly where you belong when you find Jesus. Contentment comes from a relationship with Christ. You do not have to look anywhere else.”

When Welch performs concerts and speaks at events, he is committed to sharing a message of hope and redemption. He will perform Aug. 2 at Rock the Desert in Midland.

“I want people to know that there is more than this world,” Welch said. “Everyone lives for here and now, but these years are flying by so fast. If people would take their eyes off of this world and onto eternity, how different things would be. It’s crazy how everyone is so focused on this place that is quickly fading away. Obviously, you can still enjoy life, but you need that foundation of eternity and focusing on the things to come.”

Welch has written several books about his transformation through Christ, including Save Me From Myself and Washed By Blood. He also has written a devotional book, Stronger: 40 Days of Metal and Spirituality. His music also is featured in the faith-based film, Hardflip, and he recently shared his testimony on a commercial for I Am Second.

“My favorite thing to do is talk about the Lord,” Welch said. “But if I go to a rock concert or hang out with friends who aren’t Christians, I know when to stop talking, just be a friend and let them see a change in me. I’m blessed to be alive today and to be able to tell others about how Jesus has changed my life. If he can do that for me, then he can do that for anyone.

“I’m not perfect by any means, and I still have struggles, but I’m so much happier than I’ve ever been in my whole life—even on my bad days. My life has changed in every single way, definitely for the better. I went through some tough times to get to where I’m at today, but looking back, I think that I had to go through the pain to get to the peace.

“Now, I want to be able to walk through any circumstance in life and be strong in the Lord. In order to get to that place, you have to go through many trials. It says in Psalm 56:3, ‘When I am afraid, I will trust in the Lord.’ I think that’s the mark of true maturity.”
