Voting Day

I'm going to vote after work today. I would go earlier, but I figure I might as well go with Alice so we both have someone to talk to while we wait in line.

I don't know about you, but I'll enjoy watching all of the election coverage on TV tonight.

This election does not scare me. God is King. I can't believe this is already my 5th presidential election to vote in. My candidate has lost before, and not only am I still doing fine, the country is also still alive and kicking (not without it's problems, but things will never be perfect this side of heaven...). So, regardless of who wins today, I won't be going to bed in fear or frustration tonight.

So, how long did YOU wait in line to vote today?

My total wait was an hour, from getting in line to turning in my ballot. It wasn't too bad from what I hear. However, my brother and sister-in-law voted in Collinsville and only had to wait 3 minutes!

I did not have to wait at all. Walked it...voted...and walked out.
But I was there a while as I saw a fellow church member waiting on her husband to get there so we talked for a while. It was a nice visit.

I waited behind two people. I was in and out in 5 minutes. I expected it to take longer. There were long lines earlier in the day.

Shane,
I had to wait about 5 minutes in line. I would have been willing to wait as long as possible to make my vote count.

I felt so good yesterday when I did vote. I felt like I was a part in changing American history. I think it is a milestone to see all the many races getting together to make a difference by electing Obama. I strongly believe that now all races don't have an excuse to use their race when they fail. Any race can beocome anything they desire and work hard to achieve. Obama and Joe Biden need every believers prayers over the next days, months and year head. I believe that those who were for McCain can come together and be what they were before the elections, Americans. We as believers need to put our differences aside for the good of our country. I strongly think that our country is going to change for the better over the next four yeears. We must remember that God is still God. God is in control. He has always bless the righteous. So, may we all strive for righteousness and doing our part to make a difference as Christians. Let us show love, mercy, hospitality, grace, and help to those in our country who are suffering and in need.

Well Vanessa, I almost beat you. I had to wait about 40 min total, from the time I got in line (outside) until I turned in my ballot. Yes, this is an historic occasion, and I pray that Obama will do what's best for this country. I will pray for him that he will think about that every morning when he wakes up and starts his day. I'm curious to see how God will use this new president to bring Him (God) glory.
