Which Do You Want First? The Good News Or The Bad News?

You may have noticed I haven’t blogged much recently. To be honest I’ve thought about blogging a bunch, but I just haven’t felt like anything I had to say would be worth sharing with the world. After all, who am I really? Why would anyone care?
Wow, I just re-read that. That sounds so depressing. I’m not depressed. Just deep today, I guess. Anyway, today I simply want to share with you a few of the things in this world that I know to be true.
1.) Bad news – I’m a sinner.

2.) Worse news – Because I sin, I deserve to spend eternity in Hell, in a place separated from God, my creator, my heavenly father.

3.) Great news – God’s gift to us is eternal life, through His son, Jesus Christ. If we accept him as Savior and Lord of our life we don’t have to worry so much about #2. I’ve done that. Have you?

4.) Personal Opinion – I’m so thankful for #3!

Well I'm Proud To Be An American, Where At Least I Know...

I voted yesterday in the Republican primary runoff in the great state of Alabama. In my wonderful little rural community, we vote at the local volunteer fire department. Here are just a few of the interesting things I may have heard while I was there...

1.) This made me agree with doing voter recounts.
Voter: "I forgot my purse. Do I really need my ID?"
Worker: "You're Sherry's daughter, right?"
Voter: "Yes Mam."
Worker: "Nah, I know you. Come on and vote, sugar."

2.) This made me doubt the democratic voting process as a whole
"I could never vote for someone named Twinkle. Don't matter what they're running for!"

3.) This just made me laugh.
"Don't vote for Byrne. He's against teachers, so he'll lose. You just don't mess with the AEA, Dang it!"

One last concern of mine: I voted for Bentley
He looks like this.

Unfortunately, I've never seen him and Montgomery Burns together in the same room, so I'm not completely convinced that they're not the same person.. Am I the only one who thinks this? Surely not.
