Aaahhh...Election Day in the great US of A! Regardless of who you will be voting for today, I think we can all agree that we will be glad to see it all come to an end! Ugly, nightmarish memories of hanging chads, counted and recounted votes in Florida and the election that would never end just a few short years ago remind us that we cannot take for granted it will all be over as of tonight. But we do live in hope!

Perhaps you will go to bed with visions of lower taxes dancing in your head and a contented smile because your vote counted and your candidate won. Maybe you will cry yourself to sleep tonight because your man and his faithful sidekick lost. No matter. The sun will rise again tomorrow and life will go on. God will still love you and your family just as much as He did during the fevered build-up to the election. I am encouraging myself with this verse from Scripture:
Daniel 4:17 "The Most High God is sovereign over the kingdoms of men and He
gives them to whomever He wishes."
Dear bloggy friends, we can still trust in His faithfulness and His hand of provision. We will be able to do as the Psalmist said, "Be strong and let your heart take courage". Not because we are Republicans or Democrats and not because we are Americans, but because "...we hope in the Lord." (Ps 31:24)
