This Moment In History

Yesterday was a very historical vote for our country. Both tickets had a "first". As I was hoping would happen, we could have put the first woman in the vice presidency. But, just as exciting, is putting the first black man in the presidency. Both are great for all man kind. This is such an amazing moment in our country's history!

I stood outside a poling place all day yesterday, conducting an exit pole. And I was amazed to meet people older than myself who this was their first time voting, ever. And more young people voted than ever before. That is amazing to me. And all day as I stood there, I prayed for God's will to be done in this election.

The Bible, God's written word, says in Romans 13:1 "Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God." We need to pray for, and support our president. That's what this family is going to do.

Change, though it may be scary, is a positive thing. This is the greatest country in the world. I am proud to be an American.

I couldn't have said it better.

Words to live by. A few Sunday's before election day our pastor said it is important to get out and vote but to remember that it is in god's hands who will win.

I find it amazing how many people don't do their civic duty and vote. I have been voting ever since I turned 18 and will until the end. It is one of the things that makes being an American so great.

Visiting today from SITS, your blog was ahead of me on roll call.

Well said, Star. Our family will also continue to pray for our country and our leaders -- it is not only our duty, it is the greatest way to support them.
