Inauguration Day

We may not cancel homeschool for snow days (much), but we did set the books aside today to watch the inauguration proceedings. Such an amazing thing--the peaceful transfer of power of such a large, complex nation. May God continue to grant us mercy and grace (mercy is not getting what we deserve, and grace is getting what we don't deserve)...

Please remember to pray for our new president and his cabinet. Pray that God would keep their hearts pure from corruption. Pray that they would remember all those who are marginalized and cast off--even those who are not yet born. Pray that they would uphold the Constitution (I fear we continue to stray ever farther from those lofty ideals with each passing day). And pray that they would realize (as so few of us seem to realize anymore) that we must spend less than we take in...

God bless America and her new President and Vice President!

  1. Amen to that! What a moving ceremony it was.
    My thoughts and prayers are with America and her new President.
    It's good to read your blog again, for some reason it hasn't been showing up in my "blogs I'm following".
