Deuteronomy 30:19-20

I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live, loving the Lord your God, obeying his voice and holding fast to him, for he is your life and length of days, that you may dwell in the land that the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.

Random Thoughts of the Day

Global Warming: How real is it? I am not going to get on here and say that it does not exist, because I believe that it does to a certain extent. But I think it is ironic that the country has been going through a recent cold front. Northern states have received double (and some triple) amounts of snow. And almost every state has received below average temperatures in recent weeks. In fact, this week most of the country will be in that situation, with teens stretching down to the southern parts of Alabama and Mississippi. So how real is global warming? As I said, it more than likely exists, but maybe not to the extent that we have always thought. Then again, what do I really know. I am just a college student who is not a scientist. Just my thoughts.

January 20th: The big day is right around the corner. In 1 week we will have a new president in the White House. George W. Bush's terms are coming to an end. Barack Obama will be the 44th president 1 week from today. A new age is dawning for America. It promises to be an exciting time. But even from the start, the challenges are mounting for President-Elect Obama. Of course we are all concerned about the economy, but Obama will encounter those struggles immediately. It is great to see him working hard even now, trying to find a solution to our current problems. That shows leadership on his part, and I have been impressed at his desire to begin work now, rather than waiting until his "official" first day. Next Tuesday will be a historic day.
