This past Tuesday, Nov. 4, 2008; history was made in the United States of America when the first black president was elected (Barack Obama). A lot of people voted for him because he is black, they wanted ‘change’; some voted for him because he was a Democrat and they are die hard Democrat so bless God, I’m voting for the Democrat; and some voted for him because they thought he had the best policies and ideas that our country needs at this point in time. I personally voted for the one that held the same ideas and stood on a platform that parallels my own beliefs as far as life, love, and children (birth) and what they should be defined as. Is it because I was raised in a small town and taken to church every Sunday and I read my Bible (not as much as I should, but I still believe it)? Possibly. But it’s still what I believe and hold dear. Do I preach at those that believe different? No, it’s not my place to ‘form’ others into what I think they should be. That’s between themselves and God. Anyway…America received their change. I have no problem with the color of the presidents skin, who cares if he was purple. I do not agree with all his ideas and the way he has voted in the past; nor to I believe that he should try to take away amendments of the American people or govern the way they use their freedom to bear arms. It’s going to be a very interesting four years, and I see America going slowly to socialism, and with Congress being Democrat it will be easier for the President to pass what he likes…I just hope and pray that they keep the people in mind when making their new rules and laws. And most importantly, everyone must remember that he is our President, our Commander in Chief, and God has placed him there at ‘such a time as this’ and we must pray for him as our leader. And may God bless America!!!
I went shopping on Saturday with my mom, and I found a really cute coat (for only $35, at a outlet store)…I really, really like it. It’s bright red!! Here’s a pic of it:
Things here in Doniphan are going pretty good. I purchased tickets the other day for my trip to Ireland in March (w00t!!); I’m totally psyched! My cousin is going over with me…we’re going to have a BLAST!
Last night I went to see Chonda Pierce with the women from work. She was good, and funny…it was kinda long. She was talking toward the end of the program about her time in rehab for clinical depression and that one of the things she brought away from it was that we must be true to ourselves and to others around us. Especially as Christians. She stated that we get really good at allowing our faces to lie for us, when we are dieing inside we put a happy face on and go about like everything is fine. And that is very true, sometimes we don’t say what we want to say or we hide behind the word ‘fine’ and we go throughout our day to day activities without being true to ourselves or to God. Then on Sunday morning at church we heard the same message about the ‘relationship’ with God and that he wants honesty. He accepts us for who and what we are, but He wants us to be honest about who we are. He’ll help us clean up our mess that we make of ourselves and of our lives…but He wants it to be an open relationship where we spend time with Him and tell Him ‘exactly’ what is going on. It’s time to be true to ourselves!!
I’ve went on long enough….until later…
