It has been a long time since the candidate who held my vote has taken up residence in the White House. 2017 will be no exception.
However, I will continue to respect the office of the Commander-in-Chief. I will continue to require my children to speak of him with courtesy. I will continue to pray for him and for his family. I will ask God to give our new President-Elect wisdom, a spirit of humility and the courage to do what is right. I will also pray God’s protection over his family–from within and without–as they continue to live under the harsh scrutiny of a very outspoken people.
I give thanks, again, that out of the hundreds of other points on the globe, I was born here–in the land of the free and in the home of the brave. A place in which most of us can easily afford the luxury of not fighting for our survival.
Let me not lose sight of the fact, Lord, that the world still turns at your command. You are the King of kings and Lord of lords. Thank You for being my one true certainty in these uncertain times. I choose to continue to focus on You.
