The First Family and Jesus

First off this post will make you smile.

Then a question for you all:

Since Alan Keyes says that the Illinois Senate race is a "battle for God" or something like that..I've been wondering about a faith related political issue. It may not even be an issue but i've been wondering about it.

Our friend Dubya is on the record about his feelings about Jesus. I think I feel the same way about him, but with really different responses. However, is there anything on the record how the rest of the First Family (Laura and the twins) feel about him?

the last thing most of you expected to see in this space..

I might be walking or running a half or full marathon to raise money for leukemia research. I rarely exercise so I don't know what I can convince my body to do in a few months.

You might ask why in the name of the Almighty would I do such a thing

(in no particular order)

1. My mother died as a result of a bone marrow transplant to treat her leukemia
2. I donated bone marrow to a young boy who had leukemia.
3. I need to get my butt in shape
4. costello1177 made me do it (not really :))
5. I really need a personal challenge like this, like I think God is calling me to trust him/her in this
6. My mama would have been proud as hell of me
7. It would get me out of the house. I could especially spend the next few months obsessing over the election and the Cubs.

I might completely change my mind after the informational meeting I'm attending tomorrow night. So nevermind me.
