Going to Vote?

Why not!? We are privileged to have the freedom and opportunity to vote. So many other countries don't have that liberty. So, even though today is a crazy one for me (I am getting ready to move). I am going to go and vote after work then go and get my free doughnut from Starbucks, which by the way they are also giving away free coffee today for anyone who asks.

Philipians 4:8 And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. 9 Keep putting into practice all you learned and received from me—everything you heard from me and saw me doing. Then the God of peace will be with you.

I know that some would say that when you are voting it is for 'The Better of the Two Evils' but keep this verse in mind when you are voting. I know that ultimately God is sovereign. I do believe that we have free will, but I know that no matter who makes it into office our God is still an awesome God and all things will work out!

So, go and vote!

Thank you so much! This is just the verse that I needed to hear right now... and yes! Especially after hearing the results of the 2008 Presidential elections.

*Deep breathe..

Everything is going to be okay. God is Sovereign and He is good all the time.

Lee,
Me too! All I am going to say is that I am scared of America turning into a Socialist society. But like I said before, God is in control.

*Deep breathe* on my part too.

Oh, and I wanted to tell you, Sean voted for himself for president, thought that would give you a little laugh :)

Love you
