Some Thoughts on the Election

First I felt like writing my thoughts and yes I do get on Facebook quite a bit , after reading so much before the election it was hard this morning to see all the slamming & even defriending of people. 

So this is no way to bash anyone but just to get my feelings out. 

Last night I watched the election w/ my family. Ridge , Thaniqua & Jennifer were all interested in it. I wasn't sure how it would all play out.  Paul & I had talked before about the election and really which ever way it turned out we would take it. Ridge was the most interested in it all. He didn't like the ads & such against one another but we told him it was all part of the process. 

So finally last night it came down to the winner 
Mr Obama 

I told the children that not everyone would be happy with this but then again if you didn't vote then I feel you have no reason to complain. 

I also stated that I may not like everything Mr Obama says or likes but I'm not the President. I told the children that God is still above all & that through prayer & faith we are never alone. 

This morning Ridge pointed out that so many people were saying that we need to pray & God help us. Well I told Ridge no matter who the president is we should be praying for our country. I really hope that since he was given a second term maybe he will do a better job or try some different things. I pray for our country & all the leaders .

God has it all in his hands anyway.

Just my feelings

I voiced my opinion today also because I couldn't stand being quiet anymore. I pray for our country too. We now need God more than ever.

I think this was a wonderful learning opportunity for the kids, Caroline, and I bet they will get out and vote when they are old enough and study the issues, etc. I think you handled it just great too with saying not everyone will like whoever gets elected but we need to pray for our country and trust in God. I'm saddened about the outcome but I do hope the next four years are better than the previous four years for our country and I'll keep trusting God.
