This is what we do for the joy of the King,
For His peaceable Kingdom,
For a world in despair.
And this is why we bring any hope we can give,
Any bread from the table,
Any touch of His hand.
This is what we do.
This is where we go.
This is why we sing.
This is how we live.
This is who we are.

This Pretty Much Seals It

Here is the text of Obama's Berlin speech delivered today. (I haven't even heard it yet--just read it at lunch.) Whether one likes it or not, I think most people, if they're honest with themselves, will be shocked if Barack Obama does not become the next president of our nation.  I can't think of any candidate (or recent president, for that matter), who would be capable of rendering this kind of message--even in print.

It really doesn't seem to matter whether one agrees with his policies or political agenda--when someone of this nature reflects this kind of charisma and intelligence, he rises to the top.  Sure, Obama gets a lot more than his share of lift and hype from the media, but I almost think if they suddenly went mute and blank, he'd win.

That's my humble opinion, anyway.

Hey! Glad you are back... it seems MUCH longer than a week. Hope you are feeling better.

Thanks for the link to this speech. I'm looking forward to reading it.
