A New Day

If you know me at all, you are aware that I am profoundly disappointed in the presidential election results.  Profoundly.  We went to bed as soon as they announced the projected winner.  I couldn't look at Facebook or Twitter.  I just wanted to pout.  More of the status quo was just too much to contemplate.  These have not been the best of times for us and I was looking for the light at the end of the tunnel. But today, the sun came up.  Just like it always does.  And even though I didn't get the new beginning I was longing for, God built-in a fresh start for a new perspective.   We get that new chance every single morning.

So I have to remind myself just as I know the sun will come up tomorrow, I also know that God is watching over this nation.  And even though I cannot understand God's timing, it is always perfect.  So we keep praying.  "America, America... God shed his grace on thee."
