A new day

Well, today was supposed to be up around 81 or so and I was dreading another hot day as we are still waiting for the a/c people to show back up or at least call with a possible day they'll return - instead I awoke to an overcast day that promises to stay cooler - hooray! (just checked the forecast and it's expected to be 83! At least it's not sunny, then it'd probably get even hotter!).

Last night we decided to carry out a 'tradition' - at least we've done it once before - and headed out to dinner instead of sitting around watching election returns come in. It was nice and peaceful until the waiter at a nearby table comes up to that table and loudly proclaims "In case y'all were interested, Obama......" - at that point I blocked out his obnoxiously loud voice and got back into conversation with CKB and the children and we managed to enjoy the rest of our meal. That was exactly what we'd been wanting to avoid for the evening - and why we decided we would not go to the closest restaurant (they have 2 giant tvs and I knew they'd have election coverage on). Figures.

So, we returned home and went to bed early. Blissfully ignorant of what was unfolding across the nation. We had voted. We had been praying. We know who is in charge and are comforted greatly in that knowledge.

This morning I reluctantly turned on the computer and tv and figured I might as well find out the results. I was saddened, but not surprised. I don't understand how so many could vote for such a man. How so many could turn from God and support a man who supports so many ungodly things.

God is in control. I will rest in that knowledge and continue in prayer.

As the hymn states, "My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus' blood and righteousness..."

Today we have finished our schoolwork early and have the rest of the day before us. Miss E has piano this afternoon, but otherwise the day is ours to do with what we will. I hope to work some on the baby quilt at some point. I also have plans to try and go through some things that have been lying around for ages needing to be dealt with. Then, naturally, there's always laundry and dishes and other miscellaneous cleaning that needs to be done.

What's on tap for you today?

Love your new template... I still can't figure out how to do that. Oh well.

I could try to walk you through it if you want to try changing yours sometime. Go to the site first and pick one out - remember the name so it'll be easy to find - then let me know!
