Upcoming Election...

Well, I have to say that I have heard many people who are very concerned, and even afraid about Tuesday's results. I too have been flustered hearing that this evil man is in the lead and projected to win... and, I know that if he gets it--it is judgement on our country (which we deserve).

The only thing I can cling to is that God is in control. And, I must rest in Him.

In the Old Testament, God turns the heart of the king to do His will....

8And the LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and he pursued after the children of Israel: and the children of Israel went out with an high hand. Exodus 14:8

30But Sihon king of Heshbon would not let us pass by him: for the LORD thy God hardened his spirit, and made his heart obstinate, that he might deliver him into thy hand, as appeareth this day. Deut. 2:30

1The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will. Prov. 21:1

You know, God has given our country instructions on how to get Him to help our country...

2 Chronicles 7:14If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

But, we haven't done this, and cannot expect Him to help us. If He does deliver us, it is just His mercy and grace !
My words of wisdom concerning this? PRAY!!!!!!!!!!

That's what I'm doing. And, VOTE!

My son made this sign to put in our front yard...good advice!

Hello Sharri,
Hope that you are all doing well. I have been enjoying your blog! Last week we were very busy with the Browers at the Home Show selling Lauren's line of Sugar Scrubs, Organic Soap, Sole and Body Salt Soaks and Clay Masks with Floral Water. The Browers were so gracious to share a corner of their booth with Lauren. This is a link to her Etsy site. Naturalsatinskin.etsy.com. Did you hear of the Vision Forum Refermation Celebration that they are doing in Boston in July. Oh we would love to go.
