Well I read something very interesting in the newspaper; I need anything to distract me from studying so I typed up this blog entry. It was entirely interesting and amusing to me, but most of all it made me think. The story was concerning some Non-Christians, well humanists, who bought an ad campaign that asks why man needs God to be good. Their campaign reads:
Why believe in a god? Just be good for goodness sake.
Well when I read this I was amused. This is because
To start, I am not a democrat, or a republican. I am not rich, or poor. I am not an agenda-seeking, "civil rights" advocate, or anything of that nature.
What I am, is a Black man married to a white wife, who is sick of all of the racism in this country. I am a man who is truly tired of all of the discrimination that has plagued this country for far too long. I am a man who is truly pleased to find that this nation has elected a Black man for President.
Life has been difficult lately. Lots of pain on my part and Charles' throat infection, were enough to keep us from sleeping. Furthermore, my parents are both struggling with their health; My mom with her joints and my dad has the first signs of prostate cancer. However, there is light at the end of the tunnel. The study that I'm doing to learn to pray more efficiently got stuck when I had to pray God's will for my life. It took me a few days but then I could pray "Your will Daddy, not mine."
So, I am writing this because I want to collaborate my thoughts all in one. I have been a very confused person the last, well, few months this game has been stretching on. When I say confused, I really mean I have been thinking a lot, a lot. This as a consequence has made me a very boring person to talk to and very often distant and prone to random outbursts about llamas or cats or somethink totally weirdo-esque. But hey I think that is normal for me anyway.
