His righteousness and His ways are mysterious to us all. His mercy and His bounty are wonders of the known and unknown.

The Lord my G-d is all-knowing and all-seeing and his miracles are meted by his judgment and by His wisdom.

I sincerely thank and offer praise to my Saviour for the sheltering hand He has extended to my mother in her time of need and for His love and caring that has allowed me to revel in the friends all over the world that have prayed for my family this week.

To all the people that thought of us and prayed for us I wish to say a very heartfelt and humble Thank You from the bottom of my heart and the depths of my soul.

Prayers needed

*update2* Mom came home yesterday (she left the hospital at 12 noon or so) and is doing very good, unless you knew (or saw her meds) you would never believe she had a heart attack. Thanks to everyone that prayed for her.

Last night (Tuesday) my Mom had a heart attack. She is in ICU and doing good atm.

*update* she moved into a private room last night, looks real well and should be home Friday

Truthers and Homosexuals

Ahmadinejad was at Columbia U. earlier (I'm not even going into the why) and was brought to task (slightly) on some subjects.
NEW YORK - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad questioned the official version of the Sept. 11 attacks and defended the right to cast doubt on the Holocaust in a tense appearance Monday at Columbia University, whose president accused the hard-line leader of behaving like "a petty and cruel dictator."

Ahmadinejad smiled at first but appeared increasingly agitated, decrying the "insults" and "unfriendly treatment." Columbia President Lee Bollinger and audience members took him to task over Iran's human-rights record and foreign policy, as well as Ahmadinejad's statements denying the Holocaust and calling for the disappearance of Israel.

"Mr. President, you exhibit all the signs of a petty and cruel dictator," Bollinger said, to loud applause.

He said Ahmadinejad's denial of the Holocaust might fool the illiterate and ignorant.

"When you come to a place like this it makes you simply ridiculous," Bollinger said. "The truth is that the Holocaust is the most documented event in human history."[link]
None of this changes anything, he's still a madman and he still will deny the holocaust and continue to call for Israel's destruction. This next part was funny though:
Asked about executions of homosexuals in Iran, Ahmadinejad said the judiciary system executed violent criminals and high-level drug dealers, comparing them to microbes eliminated through medical treatment. Pressed specifically about punishment of homosexuals, he said: "In Iran we don't have homosexuals like in your country."

With the audience laughing derisively, he continued: "In Iran we do not have this phenomenon. I don't know who's told you that we have this."
I wonder if any of the 'rights' groups will protest the slime?

Gracchi has tagged me with the 'First Political Memory' meme...

My first real political memory was the Presidential race of 1980 when Jimmy Carter was running against Ronald Reagen and Iran was holding Americans hostage.

I didn't really grasp what was going on, but I vividly remember the talk around the community of having to goto war to get the hostages back if Carter won the Presidency again.

I'm not going to tag anyone else :)

SEC Roundup

Tennessee got off it's rocker and put away Arkansas State; LSU played championship type football and beat South Carolina; Florida escaped with a win against a game Ole Miss squad; Auburn looked destined to go down and roared back to crush New Mexico State.

Kentucky was outplayed for 3 quarters, luckily they play 4. The fourth was all Ky all the time as they beat Arkansas. Georgia gave up a 10 point lead to Alabama only to win it on their first play of OT. Mississippi State cruised over lowly Gardner-Webb.

I'll give EMB the chance to crow about Kentucky if he wants :) And sorry to say, I don't know who Thai's favorite team is ;(
