If you are a U.S. citizen who is 18+, I have one thing to say to you:

Exercise this right. 

Take seriously this responsibility.

And then (lest you forget) remember something terribly important: GOD IS GOD. 

He will neither be surprised or frustrated or relieved about the outcome of this (or ANY) election. 

He is sovereign. 

He has a plan.

I've said it before, but I'll risk redundancy: It is good for us to ask questions and debate issues and support candidates with our vote -- and then it is good for us to simply relax. 

Trust God. 

"My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus' blood and righteousness."  

My hope is not built on Washington or Wall Street; not on the House or Senate or the Supreme Court or the West Wing. Leaders (good and bad and everything in between) come and go. 

Jesus said, "I am with you -- always -- even to the end of time." 


After you vote, maybe you want to reward yourself with a free donut from Krispy Kreme or free ice cream from Ben & Jerry's or free coffee from Starbuck's. This is, after all, the land of the FREE. 


  1. Thanks for the list of freebies! I had only heard about Starbucks.

  2. thanks for the reassuring comments...and ps...i chose starbuck's today (though i heard they had to give hte coffee to anyone who asked, lest they be accused of "buying" the vote)
