New Year Musings...

There are bitter sweet memories today as I think on our new year and all the coming changes. President Bush said his farewell speech last night. And President-elect Obama will take office next Tuesday.

For those that know me, they know how Doug and I feel about the election. We are conservative Reagan Repulicans. So when it was clear who was winning the election on Nov 4th, we were both very disheartened. But we had to realize that we cannot put our faith in the government. We MUST only put our faith in Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour.

I received an e-mail that I want to share with you. I don't know where it came from but I really liked it:

No Matter Who Won the Election

1. The Bible will still have all the answers.
2. Prayer will still work.
3. The Holy Spirit will still move.
4. God will still inhabit the praises of His people.
5. There will still be God-anointed preaching.
6. There will still be singing of praise to God.
7. God will still pour out blessings upon His people.
8. There will still be room at the Cross.
9. Jesus will still love you.
10. Jesus will still save the lost when they come to Him.


I also want to post the lyrics to an old song by Twila Paris that are quite powerful

This is no time for fear
This is a time for faith and determination
Don't lose the vision here
Carried away by emotion
Hold on to all that you hide in your heart
There is one thing that has always been true
It holds the world together
God is in control
We believe that His children will not be forsaken
God is in control
We will choose to remember and never be shaken
There is no power above or beside Him, we know
God is in control, oh God is in control
History marches on
There is a bottom line drawn across the ages
Culture can make its plan
Oh, but the line never changes
No matter how the deception may fly
There is one thing that has always been true
It will be true forever
He has never let you down
Why start to worry now?
He is still the Lord of all we see
And He is still the loving Father
Watching over you and me
watching over you...watching over me..
watching over every things..watching over you..
watching over me..every little sparrow..every little things...
God Bless Everyone and God Bless America!
