Ken and I went and voted this morning in the pouring rain. Somehow that matched my mood. I’m thankful for the pouring rain however. This has been a very divisive election. Here in California, not only with the presidential race but with the propositions. I personally was not all that thrilled with either choice for president.

But it is my hope and my prayer that in the aftermath of this election… however it turns out, that we as people, more than democrats or republicans, conservatives or liberals, will be able to come together again showing mercy and forgiveness to each other and move forward. May we as individuals and together take responsibility for our country and our world and not leave it to the professional politicians to shape the outcome. Our leaders can’t save us, and they can’t control our destinies. We can choose to love and care for each other.

Those of us who live our faith can choose to faithfully pray for whoever is our next president. He is going to need all the help he can get! Lets choose to love and care for each other as family and work together in the midst of this dark season. I am hopeful that in these trying times we as a people will remember what’s really important, which is caring for each other, more than our “stuff”. May God help us all.

And whatever you do, don’t forget to go out and vote.
