Voting with Hope!

I voted with Hope today - in more ways than one.

Well it's finally Election Day! Believe it or not, I'm not going to glue myself to the news tonight listening to the media give their lopsided view's of what's going on. I'll just check out the results in the morning.
I've done my part, researched the candidates and found out which side of the fence they hung their dirty laundry on. I'm hoping other voters did their own digging as well. But regardless of the outcome I have to hang onto Hope! Hope that American's voted the issues closest to their hearts and mindful of how their votes will impact their children now and in the future. Hope that American's didn't forget the values that made our country strong.
Sometimes the news is bleak and downright depressing. Sometimes it turns my stomach and I get discouraged. But I will never give up on Hope. I will continue to teach my children values and virtues at home which I know will be attacked by the world regardless of who wins. I will continue to serve my community no matter which political party is in charge of it. I will keep my family strong because without strong families our country would really be in sore shape. I will go on living with Hope today and each and every day hereafter.

So today I'm Thankful for the Freedom to Choose! I'm Thankful for those women who paved the way so that my voice could be heard. And I Hope and Pray that my fellow American's pick the candidates who will not forget God and the Blessings he has given us to be a part of this Great Country. And I can Hope you voted Too!
The only thing left for me to do now is Pray with Hope!

I usually walk away from voting filled with hope...not so much this time, not sure why. Maybe it's just an off day for me period.

I'll be watching, too!

So glad you voted! I quit watching the news last night and decided that I'd find out by reading the paper this morning.

I have watched the Fox news cable channel every evening for a month now. Last night I couldnt watch. My stomach actually ached.

Thank God that He cant be dethroned!

Sometimes that's all we have--HOPE.

I voted with Hope, too, not so much for who gets in office but with the hope whichever one it is knows what he's doing! Thanks so much for taking the time to leave such a nice comment! I hope you'll come back again, as I plan to do here, too.
