It’s Vertical Day!

As I have stated before, I believe that former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee is the best choice for the next President of the United States.

Since I first became acquainted with Governor Huckabee, I have watched him and his campaign very closely.  I have seen how he interacts with people, with media, and with his fellow candidates.  I have looked into every objection people have given me about his record in Arkansas.  I have read every online interview with the governor.

My opinion hasn’t changed.

I am more convinced today than ever before that Mike Huckabee is the right man for our country’s next CEO.  I want to convince you as well. 

Today and tomorrow, Mike is hosting a “Vertical Day” on his blog.  Vertical Day is his way of sharing with voters his ideas, hopes for America and the challenges facing us. He will answer some of your questions, hear from some of us, promote his positions on the issues through video and personal blogs and try some fun things online.  He is posting something new every hour.

I was always taught to value the aged.  The hoary heads, as the Old Testament puts it, have wisdom.  They have been where I have not been and seen what I have not seen.  And yet, something bothers me. Continue reading

Random Thoughts

Hey everybody!

I took a brief hiatus from blogging to concentrate on other things that are important to me.  As much as I enjoy blogging and the bantering of ideas, I realize as much as anyone else that it takes TIME.  I am not one of those who believe that blogging is a waste of time; I do, however, know it can be.

So, allow me a post to catch up on stuff.  I intend to write more regularly through the year, and look forward to our conversations.

On the 6th anniversary of September 11, 2001:
I looked at the pictures again yesterday.  They are still shocking and unsettling.  They still angered me.  Those terrible, grim digital images of planes and fire and terror are not easy to view, even now.  But life goes on.  God is still on the throne.  People still need the Gospel.  There is work to do.
