God’s grace

Good day folks. Yesterday was a great day in America. As I watched the inauguration of President Biden and Vice-President Harris, I was so encouraged to see that love and unity prevailed over hatred and fear. It was great to see people in power bringing people together instead of inciting division. It was great to hear words of encouragement instead of words filled with harmful rhetoric.

Regardless of your race, creed, religion or sexual orientation, we are all God’s people. You might not share my beliefs, but that’s okay. I am not your judge, God is. I am called to love and treat you as I would want to be loved and treated. Many say President Biden’s call for unity in America is a fantasy and he’s not living in reality, but what is the alternative? To live with guns, fear, division, strife, confusion, envy and the list goes on and on. Isn’t it better to believe in the power of love? Our Father in Heaven did say that the greatest commandment is for us to love one another.

As I watched the inauguration yesterday, tears flowed when I thought about how close we came to losing our democracy and our beloved America. Our country may not be perfect, but it sure looks a lot better than other foreign nations. We must find a way to work together for the common good and not for our own selfish gain. Unfortunately, the Bible predicts that in the last days, men will be lovers of themselves. As much as I don’t want to believe it, we are truly living in the last days.

We are standing today only because of God’s grace. America, America, God shed his grace on thee. He is still pulling for us. It is my prayer and hope that we recognize that we have more things in common than those things that divide us. May God bless America!

I am a wife, mother, grandmother and caretaker, and I also work outside of the home. Life has its struggles but I am not complaining. It could always be worse. Many lessons learned on my journey and many more to come--I am sure. God has a sense of humor and I have certainly learned how to laugh at myself. You should too-it is quite therapeutic. After all, some things we cannot change so why not enjoy a good laugh at our own expense. See you soon.
