I along with millions of others stood outdoors in a long line to vote today. Masks were worn, the social distancing 6 feet between everyone was adhered to and there was silence. It was cold, with a slight brisk wind. I read a book on my phone, those in front of me meandered toward the building in silence. A small child was entertained by watching a show on her dad's phone, but other than that, there was silence. I'm not sure if the distance between people kept visiting at bay, or if the seriousness of this election had people reflecting on what this election will mean for our country.
Today, I am grateful for:
My right to vote for those in authority and leadership in this great country
My Freedom- which came at a great price, by those who have fought and continue to fight to make and keep our country free
The ability to pray for my country; for the president, leaders, congress, the senate, judges, regardless if I agree with or voted for them. God has promised to work ALL things (good, bad and the ugly) out for good, and I get to trust HIm in what that is going to look like, even though it may look very different than what I desire or can see with my human eyes.
