Welcome to the Obama Nation

"It's time for a change!" ... to WHAT, exactly?

"Yes we can!" WHAT, exactly?

That, of course, remains to be seen. I know that I will be watching our president-elect closely to see exactly how his administration and the Democrat-controlled Congress plan to turn those vague campaign slogans into policy, and law.

Although noone can know a man's heart, I take some small comfort in the hope that Mr. Obama's professed faith will allow him to be open to the urgings of the Holy Spirit to do the right thing for all Americans, and not just what the left wing agenda says he should do.

Pray for this country, its leadership, and its people. I know I will. In the meantime, remember:

God is in control
Though godless men conspire
His will unfolds
though mortal minds are sometimes left to doubt
His ways are higher than our ways
So, even through the fire
Take heart and know
God is in control


  1. My sentiments exactly, my sweet son.

    Love you,


  2. The poem is the chorus to a song by the old Christian vocal group Truth (NOT the Twila Paris song). Jamie was a big fan for a long time and went to dozens of their concerts. I went to a couple myself during our dating years. Performed well, it's quite a powerful song.
