Coming Up For Air!

OK, now I can breathe again! The election is over. Spent yesterday vegging out, very sad about the outcome, except for Prop 8, which was the most important. However, I hate big government and Obama scares me. I don't think government is capable of doing anything better or cheaper than the private sector. If I could have invested my Social Security myself all those years, it would be worth so much more. Plus I don't trust politicians. I am also upset at the way the media took sides in this election. WRONG!

But the more I think about it I think we might see something extraordinary from Obama. We will have to wait and see if he governs with his leftie friends or makes a stand for history as the first black President. William Shakespeare said, "Be not afraid of greatness: some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them." Maybe with our prayers he will rise to the occasion.

One thing that is very clear to me is that the only real safety for our children is within the walls of our homes and churches. They must be taught and re-taught what is right and what is wrong. They must learn at the mother's knee how to love the Lord. This is the only way they will find happiness in this filthy world we live in. Mom's even if you are exhausted and frazzled you cannot miss church or Family Home Evening. The world is changing so fast. I really think the Prop 8 yes is just a breather. It will go to the Supreme Court. The agenda for 'immorality and anything goes' is set and they are fighting as hard as we are. My daily prayer are that you will be strong in your convictions and pass it on to your children.

I think this quote was really written for us today."We live in the best of times, we live in the worst of times."

I loved your thoughts. I agree that we are in a time of history that is scary for children. We must all take responsibility and teach our children right from wrong, at home. It is too important of a moral lesson to leave it up to someone else.

I have felt sickened reading some of the comments over prop 8. It is evil. I feel a bit panicked for my kids growing up in a world so sick.
I think it has strengthened our convictions to do better so they are prepared to stand tall.


I worry terribly about where our nation is turning. I am afraid that I get terribly political. I have felt a lot of comfort, though, in spite of my disappointment. I know that this nation is blessed and if we are righteous we will prosper. I do feel a greater need to be more consistent with FHE and scripture study.
