Note: Today I posted this on FaceBook and felt it appropriate to share here as well.
I'm sure you all know how I voted and I will tell you it was a vote against her, not for him. This election was crazy and I'm sorry it's the one my oldest children had to face as their first opportunity to vote in a presidential election.
I do not feel extreme joy or extreme angst, because when all is said and done, my trust is not in my government but in He who created the heavens and the earth. I do not hide in my faith in Jesus, but I stand firm knowing that I will continue to do what I feel is my calling in life and trust God has allowed these things to happen for a reason.
Our nation has strayed from it's roots, and I have personally been affected in a negative way by some of the change that happened under our current president (military cutbacks, in case you wonder), but I will not allow that to ruin my life or my day.
I will not hate those who do not agree with my way of thinking, but neither will I bow to their views if they contradict the morals and values I embrace. Being allowed to publicly voice our different opinions is one of the greatest blessings our country has to offer.
And finally, I will continue to pray for our leaders and our country.
God Bless the United States of America -- still the greatest nation on earth.
