This has been a very difficult day to be thankful since my thoughts have been overwhelmingly on the results of yesterday's election. I'll spare you the rant that's been going through my head since I opened my eyes this morning. But I will share this one thought.
Christians all over facebook this morning were reminding us that "God is in control." While I appreciate that sentiment, I heartily disagree in this case. I believe God has stood back and taken his hands off America, which is just the way we (collectively) want it. He is now going to give us what we've elected to have, and we're going to suffer the consequences of our choices. He is under absolutely no obligation to be merciful to us after what we've done. We had plenty of warning.
Sorry about that negative note. I do try not to use the blog for political ranting; that's what Twitter is for. ;)
But in spite of all that's gone wrong in the last 24 hours, I am still a thankful person, with much to be thankful for. Tomorrow I will see my daughter and son-in-law from Tennessee, and that means GRANDBABIES!! I just can't wait to kiss their fat little cheeks!
I will be in Lynchburg for a couple of days, but I'll try to post a few pictures here from my phone.
Be thankful ~
