Prayer for Our Country
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: Politics

We should always be in prayer for the government officials - local, state and national, but in light of the fact that a major mid-term election is just around the corner I feel we should especially be in prayer for our great nation. Although I have delved into politics occasionally, the purpose of this blog has never been political. However, my blog has always been pro-family and especially pro Christian family. I feel that most of my readers are of the same persuasion. That is why I want to remind all of my readers to be vigilant in prayer for the upcoming elections. I, myself, am praying for the candidates that are pro-God, pro-family and pro-constitution. I am not going to try to get you to vote for one candidate or another but I do think that prayer is the key to keeping our country great. I don't know what's going to happen one, five or ten years down the road, but God does. Let's pray that God will raise up strong Christian rulers that, like our founding fathers, will continue to strengthen our land.

My Humble Opinion on a Very Controversial Subject
Topic: Politics

I'm sure most of you, if you don't know me personally, have figured out that I am a Christian and I am fairly conservative politically. Most of you also know, if you have been coming here for any length of time, that the purpose of this blog is not political but to strengthen the family. Sometimes, however, the two cannot be seperated and I feel that this is one of those times.

Before I go any further, let me tell you that I am for stem cell research - just not research using embryos - discarded from fertility clinics or aborted and especially those created only for the purpose of research to be created and then killed. I feel that life begins at conception and should be valued from the moment that the first cell splits to make two. 

I feel, in my limited reading on the subject, that umbilical cord blood and other stem cell sources are just as valuable and can be used just as effectively without the need to create life and then destroy it. 

I will say no more on the subject. I have many friends who have Muscular Dystrophy, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease and other things that stem cell research could help in the future. Perhaps some of the problems that my own children have can be helped by this type of research in the future. I only pray that this experimentation can be done in an ethical way.

With all of that said, I would like to direct you to a link from BBC News on the development of synthetical blood using stem cell research. I found the side bar "Making Fake Blood from Embryos" most compelling as it states that the "Embryo created from IVF is tested for O-negative blood group, then allowed to develop for several days until stem cells can be extracted". Of course we know that when the stem cell is extracted, the embryo is destroyed. Just press on any of the mentions of BBC News in this blog entry to connect with the article.

A Letter to the President
Topic: Politics

Recently I emailed our soon to be outgoing president to thank him for his years of service to our country. As a tribute to him, I would like to share that email with you.

Dear Mr. President,
I realize that with all of the correspondence that you receive, you will probably not read this e-mail, but I had to express my thanks to you for these past eight years.
I watched with tears in my eyes as you gave your farewell address to the nation last Thursday, and have thought much, recently, of your presidency. There has been a lot said of the change that President-elect Obama will bring to our country, but there are three changes that I pray will not come.
1. I pray that the safety of my family will not change. You and the policies that your administration has brought forth have protected us from another terrorist attack. I hope that does not change with the new administration.
2. I pray that the selflessness of the presidency will not change. You have always done what you have felt was best for our country whether it was popular or not. I pray that our new president will be just as selfless.
3. I pray that the spirituality of the White House will not change. I know that you have sought God daily in your decision making for our country. I pray that the president elect will do the same.
Our soon to be 44th president has been treated almost like a Hollywood celebrity, but one of my heroes will always be our 43rd president. Thank you for always caring for our country first and doing what was best for our country even when it wasn't popular. As you have said, it will be left up to historians to judge your two terms in office, but I feel they will judge it favorably. At least it will be favorable in my book.
Thank you again,
Tim Tinkel
829 Hi Tech Dr.
Livingston, TN 38570

Abraham Lincoln's Godly Presidency - Followup
Topic: Politics

Yesterday I was very pleased to hear (on Fox News of course!) that the Obama's went to church and are actively seeking a church to regularly attend. That was very encouraging! I continue to pray for the President Elect and his administration and hope, for the sake of our country, that his presidency is a Godly, successful one.
