Now That Obama Has Won.......

Here's the good news and the bad news:

BAD NEWS: America decided that The Maverick wasn't ready for the White House.
GOOD NEWS: Michelle Obama is finally proud of something her country has done.

GOOD NEWS: America has elected it's first black President.
BAD NEWS: Anyone that criticizes the President will be considered a racist.

GOOD NEWS: My brother Jon could come home early from Iraq.
BAD NEWS: THE JOB might not get done.

BAD NEWS: Obama's socialist tax plan will re-distribute the wealth across America.
GOOD NEWS: We might get some of it.

BAD NEWS: It will be more difficult for parents to make alternative education choices for their children (homeschool, charter school, etc.).
GOOD NEWS: Todd and I will always be able to find a job.

BAD NEWS: Abortions will become easier to obtain and more wide-spread.
GOOD NEWS: ?????????

BAD NEWS: Sarah Palin goes home to Alaska.
GOOD NEWS: Maybe now Oprah will invite Sarah on her show.

GOOD NEWS: No more political commercials and campaign phone calls.
BAD NEWS: The election is over and we can't change it.

In all seriousness, the Bible commands us to honor those who have been set in authority before us. Now that Obama is President, I will fervently pray that God will help him to make wise decisions for our country. I pray that he will surround himself with smart and experienced advisors who want the best for our country. I pray that the practice of abortion will not gain a stronger foothold in our land. And, I pray that our enemies will not rise against us, emboldened by a perceived weakness in our future military response.
