Finally, it’s over….I think.
I can’t speak for you, but as far as this presidential election, with the non-stop campaigning and lately, the incessant, robotic calls from celebrities, I am more than ready for this whole thing to be over.
We got up early this morning in freezing temps and headed to the polls, and we executed our duties as American citizens with a clear conscience.
We voted. Long lines, people in pajamas and all. We’ve done our part, now, along with you, we wait till the precincts close and the votes come in and are announced. Well, at least that’s how it used to be.
I’m not sure what’s going to happen tonight. We may or may not know who’s President of this country, but, we as a family have done our part, and as far as I’m concerned, I hope I never hear from Clint Eastwood, Palin, Anne Romney or anyone else again telling me to vote…or how to vote. Shut up already.
It’s been a long campaign, and each side has told their lies and lied about their promises, city of man and all that. Now, it’s time to open the windows of our brains and let all their hot air flow out to a fallen world who’s willing to swallow that garbage and get free stuff for nothing.
I have a hate/love relationship with politics. It’s necessary, important, and so far-gone corrupt that sometimes I wonder if it’s even worth it anymore. Come, Lord Jesus.
If Obama should win, there will be no greater, more comforting truth, than knowing the absolute sovereignty of God in all things.
If Romney wins, which I doubt, then ditto.
My prediction, for what it’s worth (which is nil) is this: Romney will win the popular vote while Obama, that scoundrel without proof of birthplace, will win the electoral votes. I hope I’m wrong, but, it doesn’t really matter.
Amidst all this political turmoil and unnecessary anxiety about America’s future, the most comforting thing I can think of right now is knowing that we have heat inside while its cold outside, Jesus is King and not just ruling as King of kings, but holding all things together as our Creator. That, and the fact that, in spite of all my faults, my family loves me.
I’m good to go.
