I haven't ever posted anything political on my blog. At least I'm fairly certain I haven't. I use this blog mainly as a means to share pictures with family and friends and share scrapbooking stuff with my fellow scrapbookers. Do you hear a "but" coming? I also use this as a way to document life today for me and my family. So that being said, it's necessary to mention the election that took place yesterday.
I write this with mixed emotions. On one hand, I think we as a country made a huge mistake. However, I'm in the minority and thankfully we do live in a country where the people have the right to choose their own leader. THIS is a blessing, whether it turned out the way I think it should have or not. I still remain very concerned about the moral decline of this country, and I disagree with 0b@ma's economic policies 110%, but that doesn't change the fact that he will be our next president. As a friend of mine stated today on face book, I'm very thankful our founding fathers placed checks and balances in the system. So now, the prayers just change a bit.
I pray that God gives him wisdom.
I pray that God gives him guidance.
I pray that all the people that he has instilled such hope into, will now take that hope and make a difference in a positive way.
I pray that the historical significance that this election has, will help all people realize that it really is possible to achieve your goals, regardless of race or gender.
Regardless of how this turned out God is still in control. And the hope we have in him has always been there and will never EVER go away.
God Bless America
God Bless the 44th President of the United States.
