If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

My daughters both participated in a drama yesterday at the church where they attend youth. Our church is really small and they are the only teens that come all the time so they actually are part of a youth group in a sister church where my husband grew up. Does that make sense? Anyway, they are part of the drama team too. So they had to go there for Sunday morning church to participate in the drama. Hubby and I got to see a run-through of it on Saturday when we picked them up after practice. Anyway, I got my sister-in-law who attends that church, to record it with my camera as hubby and I couldn't go because he's the pastor and I'm the pianist at our church.

I wanted to download it here, but I seem to be having trouble. It's about 5 minutes long and a little over 500mb's. I've tried twice to download it to Blogger and after over an hour both times it's still not downloaded. Anybody have any suggestions on what I need to do? I didn't have any trouble downloading the video on the previous post but it's just a few seconds long. I really want to share it with you all, if possible.


  1. You might try downloading it to Utube and then linking it on your site? I have seen people do it but have never done it myself.
    Might work.
    take care and keep warm!

  2. Cathy,
    Try Blip.TV.
    It is a totally free service (well they have an advanced service that is not free).
    I use it to post entire church services for the church website.
    On their site they have what is called Cross-Posting. After you upload a video they will post it to Blogger or Facebook for you.
    It doesn't lose the quality like YouTube does.
    Call me and I can help you do it.
    It's a fairly quick process.
    BTW, it took more than an hour to upload the little video I posted on my blog using the Blogger uploader. The original one which was about 11 minutes long. I deleted that one and posted a 7 min. version, and it took way less time.
    Could also be the time of day. If the Blogger or Google video servers are really busy, could take longer.

  3. some times blogger doesn't like videos or pictures and I haven't been able to figure out when or why. But when I have trouble, I upload to YouTube and then link it to my blog.

  4. Thanks everyone. I'll try to get something going tonight when I get home. I tried joining Godtube but I'm having trouble receiving an e-mail from them to activiate the account. So we'll see. Thanks for all the advise.

  5. I am not very tech savvy so I cannot help. I hope you get it to work though!
