Well, I can't say that last night wasn't a disappointment. However, I am so glad that God is sovereign and that there is nothing that happens that doesn't happen because He ordains it to be so. For reasons that I don't understand Barak Obama is the next president of our country. I don't know what kind of president he will be and I fear for my country in some ways but several things I do know.
1. God is in control of all. Say it again people, God is in control of all. Don't forget that.
2. I will pray for President Obama, for his family, for his safety, for wisdom in doing this job.
3. I will continue to pray for this country and for all of our elected leaders.
4. I am very glad that we have elected a black man for President. Never again do I want to hear that a black man (or woman) can't be anything that they want to be in this country. They can if they strive just like the rest of us. He isn't the black man that I would have wanted (that would have been Michael Steele or J.C.Watts or Ken Blackwell) but it is still a good thing. Gads I sounded like Martha Stewart there for a moment. Sorry.
5. I am SOOOOOOOO glad that this election is over. Can we go on to other things now?
6. Campaigning as we do it here in America is something that should be changed. After this election cycle that seemed to stretch on forever I am more and more convinced that too much money is spent on the race to get elected to political office. Both candidates talk about change but all the money that is spent could be put to better use actually helping someone. I would really like to see the laws changed so that there is NO CAMPAIGNING until 8 weeks before an election. Then you can bombard me within reason but not before. Other countries (like Britain and Canada and Australia) seem to be able to do this. Why can't we. Just a thought.
Now back to our regularly scheduled lives.
