Random Thoughts

Today is Wednesday, April 22, 2009 and I am sitting in my office examining some various news stories on the net...

Kudos to Miss California, Carrie Prejean, who stood true to her convictions that marriage is to be between one man and one woman...I wish that more people who claim to know Jesus Christ would have the same courage to stand and not retreat (Are you listening Rick Warren?) from the truths of God's Word...even in the firestorm that has followed, she has remained undeterred in her convictions!

Kudos to Gary Galeotti, my Professor of Old Testament and Hebrew at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina. Dr. Galeotti is retiring after spending more than 30 years of teaching, the last 17 at SEBTS. He is a remarkable man of God and I am sure that the Seminary will miss him!

In a recent appearance on Keith Olbermann's program on MSNBC, Janeane Garofalo stated that the TEA parties were just racism. She said that the parties were just people who did not like a black guy in the White House. Well, we really cannot expect anything any different from those of the liberal persuasion...just because someone disagrees with the President's policies does not make them a racist. The fact is that Government, under Bush, and now under Obama, has been and is spending too much money that the country does not have. the only way to recoup this money, according to their logic, is to increase taxes....I know, I know, Obama cut taxes for 95% of Americans...however, the second shoe is about to seems that Obama wants to change our behavior by a "cap & trade" bill that estimates say, will increase your energy costs some $3,000.00 per household per year, if this bill is passed...Obama himself has said that energy bills will skyrocket for the average whenever you drive, turn on your a/c at home, use the blowdryer, wash your clothes, etc. you will certainly pay for it with a tax that is designed to make you quit doing those things in order to "save" the earth...Change we can believe in, Change...that's all that will be left in our wallets!

We had an interesting night in Columbus the other seems that just as I was preparing my coffee maker to come on the next morning for my daily cup of joe, a loud voice came from outside saying that a tornado had been spotted in Phenix City, Alabama and that we should take cover...NOW! Then the siren went off...You should have seen 7 of us, plus one feline, huddled together in the hallway of our home (a small hallway!) with laptops at the ready to track the storm. The Lord was watching over us that night as the storm passed just to our west and north...the city experienced some damage, but, thankfully, no lives were lost...

Have a Great Day!
