2008: It Is What It Is
For many years, Lake Superior State University has put together an annual list of the words that they would want banished from public use for the next year. In honor of their list, I give you this message of encouragement.
Iâ€™m no wordsmith, but Iâ€™d like to give back to my audience by bestowing you an emotional send-off to 2008 with random commentary, a perfect storm of organic joy to decimate the black Friday that is this pop culture. None of you needs a webinar to tell you that the surge in Iraq authored by the president has given us new hope in this post 9/11 world. Back in the day, we could count on aggressive actions from our military, waterboarding or not. None of us wants personal freedoms thrown under the bus, but sometimes it is what it is. Maybe Mike Huckabee or Fred ThompsonÂ is the new Ronald Reagan and all of this will clear up. That would be sweet, huh?
Whatever your state in 2008, letâ€™s stay obedient to Scripture, watching and waiting for the Lord.
