Happy 90th Birthday!

One of my all time heroes, Billy Graham, evangelist and Christian leader, turned 90 today. I know he'll probably never read my blog, but I want to wish him a big Happy Birthday anyway. He is a man whose faith, integrity, and steadfastness of purpose have inspired me since I was a teenager. I remember watching one of his crusades when I was in high school, and thinking - he believes what I do, but I want more of what he's got!

Presidents and world leaders have sought his counsel, but he has remained humble. While huckster televangelists soaked people for millions, he lived on a modest income. While the world wrestled with agnosticism and postmodernism, he remained devoted to the truth of God's word.

May God raise up more men and women like him!
