Election Day Mercies

I gotta admit, I was a lot more excited to find that Meijer re-opened the express self-checkout lanes for cash paying customers today than I was to vote. No more ugly orange signs announcing a coin shortage at my favorite store. It’s the little things really.

And, if that wasn’t mercy enough, and it was, Indian summer weighed in all sunshine and 62 in early November. It just doesn’t get any better than that!

I’m grateful for my 1 vote. Really I am. I just wish that the 2 primary contenders better represented the dignity of this great land that I love. But here’s the thing, at the end of the day, or maybe tomorrow, Biden or Trump will be elected President for 4 years. Biden’s already got 8 under his belt as White House sidekick and Trump’s been in the driver’s seat for 4. Nobody says it like it is better than the Teacher.

What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun. (Ecclesiastes 1:9)

Here’s the thing. We’ve survived the leadership of both of these political hacks before and we’ll survive again.  So I’m going to sleep in peace because this election, it’s momentary. I know who the real King is and He’s got my vote forever. 

Good night.
