I am sad today. I don't want to turn this into a political rant (because I most certainly could), but I am so sad that we are saying goodbye today to one of my favorite presidents, George W. Bush and his beautiful wife Laura. I have been so thankful for the way they have led our country with such dignity and integrity. I am thankful for the way that President Bush has relied on his faith to guide him through such difficult times. I am thankful for the fact that our First Lady has stood up for women and girls around the world, and been such a support for our President. She is the epitome of elegance and grace. So, as we move into a different direction I just wanted to publicly thank President Bush and First Lady Laura for their service to our country. I wish we could have 8 more years with them.
However, having said all that, this is a good test of my faith and a reminder that my trust must be in our Lord Jesus and not in our political leaders. They will change and fall, but God will stand forever. And someday everyone will know who is the real King of Kings. So even as I am sad, I can rest in the knowledge that my future is secure because I know who is really in control of our country and our world. Thank you Lord.
