What a well executed post...

Until recently I have enjoyed a life without fear. Oh, I remember in the wake of 9/11 being uneasy, upset and shaken, but with resolve being what it is, fear never crept in. Add to that the quick response of the former administration to get in the fight, and right on the soil of those responsible for that day.

Fear. It's that nasty taste that wells up in the back of your throat when you read the headlines. It's the palpitations of an otherwise healthy heart. It's the feeling of near-hopelessness that shrouds the day that started out sunny. Fear brought on by one man who will obviously do whatever it takes to impose HIS will on a once free and strong people. I say fear because it does not seem that we can do anything. And yet, GA, you hit it on the head in this post: We can pray. The Apostle John said that perfect (loyal) love casts out fear. I must remember this daily as I peruse the headlines, flip past FOX News or log onto your website (where I find myself in 100% agreement).

The best prayer is that from 2 Chronicles 7:14 where it says "If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land". 68 million people voted in what they thought was hope, but after reading that passage from scripture once again I see just how misinformed the masses were in the days leading up to election day and every day since. I see again how my hope rests in One Man, the One who became flesh and dwelt among us. This is the personification of the kind of perfect love which casts out fear. In my life and in the life of my family, He has proven Himself faithful time and again. It's that faithfulness that takes that taste out of the back of my throat and calms my heart. It's the kind of revolution that can't be stopped, though many have tried.

Nero once said that Christianity would die and we would remember no more the names of those who spread it. Kinda funny how 2,000 years later we still name our kids Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Peter, James, Mary and Martha. We name our dogs Nero and Caesar.

Days can be bleak while in the midst of them, and yet history proves many things to be the opposite. One day, years from now, perhaps one of my great-grandchildren will have a dog named Obama.

I’ll join you in praying for his utter failure but I’ll be praying also for our country to outlive him.


These people ain't gonna be happy 'til we're all pedaling cyclos past the mosques on Main Street with copies of "Quotations From Chairman Barack" stuffed into the frayed pockets of our hand-me-down Mao jackets...
