Believe me, I would feel much more comfortable doing a post on my decorating and home improvement projects, homeschooling adventures, my faith or my family.....but I felt compelled to write this post. Actually it's BECAUSE of my family that I write it....and I sincerely do so with the best and kindest intentions.
You all know that my vote went for McCain, and I have to honestly say that I've had a heavy heart since election night. I'm truly worried about the future of this country....not so much for me....but for my children.
BUT, that being said, I do know that the future of this great country doesn't necessarily lie in the hands of ANY one man, but most of it will have to do with what we, the American people, do (and say). For years, I think we've let some things (issues) slip in or slip by and America is worse because of it. I love my country and have always been especially proud of America. I want my children to grow up with the same freedoms and the same nation under God. Our forefathers knew what they were doing when they fought so hard to establish our freedoms and to carefully create and word our Constitution. I believe as long as our country stays under this umbrella of principles and also remains a nation under GOD, and a friend to Israel, we will be a blessed nation. If we stray, America will suffer and deteriorate from within.
If there's one thing I think we all share (at least the readers that I believe visit here) is a deep love for our families so that's why I challenge and ask you all as fellow Americans, and Christians, to stay alert, stand up, stand together (regardless of who we voted for), and speak out. There will be times, as there have been in the past, when laws and amendments on issues will come into play that will threaten the morality of our country and thus affect the lives of our children because of the society in which they will have to live. So, I'm calling all Americans....you will have to step out of your comfort zone....but this country and our families are worth it!
If you've stayed with me this far on the post, I sincerely thank you, my blogging friend, and ask God's blessing on you, your family, and our great country!
