It is FINALLY here!!!
After 18 months or so of drama (not to say horror) one way or another tonight it ends.
Oh sure, we may have yet more drama, vote re-counts, even, God forbid, law suits or Donald Trump storming the White House regardless of votes.
But our decisions have been made!
Our votes have been cast.
Our agonising (at least on that front) is OVER!!
(Though, if you’ve not yet voted GO VOTE!)
And now the real work begins!
I don’t know about you, but I never (ever, ever) again want to experience an election with two candidates of this… er… quality.
And I learned a lot during this election about avoiding this in future – mainly, alas, that we can’t wait until the election year to start making changes!
Citizenship seems to be a year ’round obligation.
But it’s worth it!
We are worth it, and our country is worth it!
One thing I can do today, before a single exit poll is announced, is to obey the call to action of my man Paul, in 1st Timothy:
“First of all, I ask that you pray for all people. Ask God to bless them and give them what they need. And give thanks. You should pray for rulers and for all who have authority. Pray for these leaders so that we can live quiet and peaceful lives—lives full of devotion to God and respect for him.“
A quiet and peaceful life sounds awfully good to me!
Let’s transform our country, and our political system, into something that WORKS.
