I was so proud to take my boys to the poles yesterday. They had the day off, and so they went with Barry and I as we voted. It cracked me up as we watched final results this morning. Nolan (my blunt child) said, "Mom, did ANYBODY that you voted for win?" The truth is that some but not many did. However, I am not depressed, discouraged or down-hearted.
There are many things to be thankful for this morning. Here are just 2 reasons to rejoice:
- I live in a country that has a peaceful exchange of democratic power. Where else would you see two candidates give such amazingly gracious speeches post-election? I'm so proud to be American!
- I live in a country that has overcome so many racial problems. Certainly there is still racism, but we have come such a long way. That makes me proud to be American.
Beth Moore said it so much more eloquently than I ever could. Don't miss linking to her blog today. While you're there, don't miss yesterday's either. Let's join together in praying fervently for our President-elect.
