So, I have been trying to stay calm and rational lately. A lot of people making dire predictions with Obama and the tanking economy. I tell myself that every generation has its challenges, and this is only the kingdom of man. I can maintain hope in the face of political turmoil and societal breakdown. If we face tough economic times, job loss, hyperinflation, etc. we will be alright. I expect to be persecuted for my faith at some point. Socialism, communism, etc. Take your best shot.

But when evil acts are carried out on innocent children, I just have to wonder how long it can be until God is provoked into action. Check out Erin Manning's recent post on the latest in artificial embryology and parenting for lesbians.

How do you remain hopeful in these times?

And just now, Nicole C Mullen's "Redeemer" played on my iPod.

Who taught the sun where to stand in the morning?
Who told the ocean, "You can only come this far"?
Who showed the moon where to hide 'til evening?
Whose words alone can catch a falling star?

Well I know my Redeemer lives
I know my Redeemer lives
All of creation testify
This life within me cries
I know my Redeemer lives

I suppose the answer, as always, is to remember Easter Sunday.

I love that song. Which makes Travis very sad, but he has resigned himself to putting up with my all too predictable taste in music.
