Dear Friends,

Well its over for now. Personally it didn’t go the way I had hoped & prayed it would.

Last night I listened to the returns as I was driving through the black empty prairie. When the news came, I pulled over, stopped & got out. The stars were incredible. I recognized the Big Dipper, Orion, & that old faithful North Star. Dad showed me these constellations as a kid. These same stars that ancient mariners & herdsman have used for direction gave me the sense that God is big, I am small & that there is a plan.

And the sun rose this morning right on time.

As I start this new day, although tired, heart-sick & bruised, the world will not stop for me to catch up. It’s time to go on. And you know, even though it didn’t go my way, at the end of the day DEMOCRACY is still a beautiful thing.

Thanks for voting in the election 2012 & as always,
God bless America!

Your Pard,

R. Dub

    R.W., a great perspective in deed. It’s a new day, God’s still in control and His Word is always true. We still need to persevere and get back to the “faith of our fathers”. As in the book I’m reading right now, God is the issue. If we can address the “God issue” that’s a disease in our society today (meaning our society has a heart problem, ie. not knowing God) then the symptoms go away. These symptoms are what we’re dealing with today. Take care. J & G
