Focus on prayer!

Things don’t always go our way. From sports to national elections, someone will be happy and others will be disappointed. We know going in that not everyone can win.

I watched the Tampa Bay Rays win the American League championship then lose the World Series. My first reaction was to think they’ve come so far then lost. But really, what did they lose? After years of being in last place, wasn't it a dream come true to even play in the World Series? The fact that they made it there shows that they’re winners! I think the Tampa Bay Rays came through with an awesome season, and they made all of us proud here on the Suncoast of Florida.

Then there was the presidential election. In this great country of ours, we’re allowed to disagree—with each other, with the government, and with the status quo. If enough people feel the same way about something, we have the power to change things. And that’s what happened yesterday. Although the outcome wasn’t what I’d hoped for, I do plan to pray for the leaders who have been elected into office. The United States of America is still the greatest country in the world, and I’ll continue to stand by that.

Like I said, things don’t always go our way. This is the time when we need to take stock of our relationship with God and pray for the leadership that our great country needs in this difficult time.

Great post, Debby....and I agree! Although I was quite disappointed with the outcome of the election, I must remember WHO is truly in charge. And I must continue to pray for our leaders....God has a plan!

Hey, Patti Jo! It's great to hear from you!

The temps have dropped a little, so it's cooler than usual--great sleeping weather.

By the way, I love the cat! My Felix looks a lot like him(?)her.
