What a welcome home that must have been! This reminds me of our trip to St John this summer where we were blessed to be a part of a welcome home for our US troops at the DFW airport too. It was so moving to see everyone in the airport stop, stand to their feet, and applaud these fine men and women and welcome them home. It makes me tear up just thinking about it!
I try not to be very political on my blog, but this was a president that I prayed for on a regular basis. I can't imagine the pressure and stress that he was under but I am so thankful for his Godly leadership while he was president. I have to admit that I am not as quick to pray for President Obama...I'm not proud of that fact and Sunday's sermon made me realize that God allowed President Obama to be our president...He could have stopped it, but He didn't and even though, he wasn't my choice, he is still our president and I should be praying for him too.
But, speaking of praying, would you please join me in praying that the Ground Zero mosque will not take place! That God will put a stop to all of those awful plans and that He would so change the hearts of our leaders. The United States of America is still one nation, Under God...He is still on the throne...He sees it all...but it is time we Christians stopped whining and complaining about the leadership and started getting down on our knees about important issues like this one.
The evil one would like to have a strong foothold in our country...but the United States of America belongs to the Lord...for His good purpose and for His glory. Will you join me in praying?
