The Important Vote

I don't feel like being wordless today. Not that I have a ton to say, but won't be truly wordless. Of course, Davisix, still writes a fair amount on days she claims to be "wordless" Wednesdays. :-)

I am very heavy-hearted over the election. Surprised...not really. I think of the verse you will know a tree by its fruit and I wonder what fruit will we see. I get emails occasionally talking about President-elect Obama and they say how he could be ushering in the end times. Usually these emails have a panicky feeling to them and it's a "forward this to all your friends and warn them" kind of thing. My thoughts are BRING IT ON. The "end times" are gonna get me a lot closer to seeing Jesus. I'm just not one of those "oh, I want to see my kids grow up before the Lord returns" kind of person. No way! Come on that white horse Lord and get me outta here. But in the meantime, I am still so thankful and proud to be an American. And even with someone in office that I personally did not vote for, I'm not distraught. Because when it comes down to the line the one vote that really matters is the vote Jesus made on Calvary. He voted for me to live and for Him to take my sins. And because of that I have a home in Heaven that I am anxiously waiting to go to.
