I've been battling some sort of ickiness for the past few days (I'm finally breaking down and going to the doctor later today), but truth be told, I'm having trouble corraling my thoughts for blogging. So today will be a hodge-podge of unrelated but, I hope, interesting things.
Mark Schultz to bike across America
Christian singer Mark Schultz--who has been known to wring a tear or two from my eye with his very touching ballads--is doing something really cool.
On his upcoming concert tour, Mark will bike across America to raise money for orphans. The fund-raising trek is to support The James Fund, a charity founded by Family Christian Stores.
Mark himself is adopted, and he's concerned about the plight of children who don't get adopted. He hopes to wrap up the 35-hundred mile trek in Portsmouth, New Hampshire on July 9th.
You can find out more about Mark's bike tour and The James Fund here.

Depressed about global warming?
