The Day Isn't Over Till It's Over

Hubby and I went early to vote and then had breakfast at our town's rec center served by the local Lion's Club--pancakes and sausage. Since then I've hardly gotten anything done. So much is riding on this election. It seems more than ever Americans are uneasy: over rumors about what kind of change Obama may be talking about. Wondering if we want another administration that might not bring about the changes we would like. I didn't think I'd be feeling as unsettled as I am.

Please pray for the USA as we face an uncertain future. Finally, I must remind myself, as a believer, that it is all in God's hands and that's where I need to leave it. "For in the day of trouble he will keep me [us] safe in his dwelling." Ps. 27:5

Thank you so much. Hubby and I were discussing the outcome and we thought that having an African American for president will certainly help those who have been racially oppressed. Obama is going to need prayers. He made a lot of promises and people's expectations are high. We don't agree with his liberal abortion stance. We are trusting God to direct his paths.

Lovella, I found your blog by following Betty's link to Mennonite Girls Can Cook. I appreciate finding bloggers like you two. Maybe through blogging we Mennonites can help change the world for the better? God bless.
