President VS King, King Wins


Believe you me I have a definite candidate I'm voting for, but win or lose, I will also try to remember the BIGGER  picture! 

I pray for peace for this country! I pray for the country to stay strong and Christian.  I pray for the future for our kids.

Have a blessed Sunday.

Cranberry Morning said...

I can't add anything to what Sandra already said - AMEN!

Auntie sezzzzzz... said...

Oh I want our Beloved Country to be strong. I have the Preamble To The Constitution on my blog, under my Header. And ask the question: "Will your vote, preserve, protect and defend, The Constitution of the United States of America?"

So I think you can figure, for whom I am going to Vote.

And I can say and do these things, even though I do not follow any Religion.

It is sad, that some people feel we have to agree on everything, in order to come together on certain important things. But see, my holding with no Religion, does not stop me from being a Conservative! In other words, please accept that everyone doesn't have to be a Christian, to be a down-to-earth good citizen.

Amen and Amen. Great Sunday entry!!!

That corgi :) said...

Amen! Billy Graham sent out something that said this was a very important election to vote in(they are all but I do believe this is a defining one indeed). He was struck with the thought this potentially could be the last one he votes in as he will be 94 his next birthday. But he did say for people to consider voting biblically on key issues especially and regarding sanctity of life and sanctity of marriage. I'm voting biblically and praying, praying, praying.

Hi Sandie....
Hope your weekend is going splendidly.

You are right that Jesus is King, always. That's a good thing to remind ourselves of, regardless of who gets into the White House on Tuesday. Susan

Susannah said...

Amen! Total agreement!

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

Despite all of the hoopla, this country has never been necessarily "Christian," but there have been times when the pretense was more evident than others.

Betsy Adams said...

Amen, Sandie... I totally agree. Our country is in a mess --and we need to get back to what our constitution says and what our forefathers intended for this country.

Hugs,
Betsy

Mevely317 said...

... and the voter from Phoenix adds her own "Amen!"

Cheri said...

I love how you put in "Christian" we as a country need to get back to those values ASAP.

Butterbean Row said...

We have our King in Jesus Christ. I just pray that people will turn to Him before it is too late.

I agree with those sentiments. No matter who is president, we need to keep faith that we do have a KING that will guide us and protect us. Our country was founded under Christian principals so that all can worship as they please without persecution. We are so blessed, there are many who do not have this privilege.

Betty Manousos said...

have a blessed sunday yourself!

thanks so much for the inspiration.

blessings~

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Michaele said...

We are going to have to pray really hard for those things you know.

Dar said...

Amen! Yes, Amen to your entry. This will be the most crucial vote I will be involved in too. Our country is in dire need of 'real' change, not an empty promise. We are in deep trouble and prayers are rampant for recovery. Our King in heaven will help our country survive. Nuff Said
BlessYourHeart

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

Indeed!

Jill said...

AMEN my wonderful friend!

It's me...Jill. I lost my old blog (chillinwithjill)!

jean pell said...

We need to move forward...not backwards for our future generations.

I purposely waited to vote due to wanting all the latest facts. Glad I did.

Lynn said...

I'm with ya!

Diane K said...

Well said. Great to remember this always. Our pastor says this to us all the time. We can't place our trust in any one person/president, our trust needs to be in God alone.

Paula said...

Amen!

Retired English Teacher said...

Amen, sister.

Sarah (Nikki) said...

Woo hoo!!! You said it right on!!!!

The Jones Family said...

Thank you for this wonderful reminder. Truthfully, I will be glad when Tuesday is over. I hope we will know a winner Tuesday night. This election is starting to grate on me! Enjoy your week!

From Tracie said...

Yes!

This is something we can definitely agree on!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I am so grateful to be able to vote and never take that fact for granted.

Thank you for all your kind words of support for the Hurricane Sandy victims. I have been voluteering at a temporary shelter in Brooklyn the past few days for the people that lost their homes. It is wonderful to see how many people are helping and donating goods that are needed!

Starting Over, Accepting Changes - Maybe said...

I feel like that little girl who cried because she was sick of hearing about the election. We all have reasons to vote for the people we believe in and it seems 50% believe one way and the other 50%, another. I do know that many of our first settlers came to this country to get away from religious persecution because they chose to go to a different church. This is a country of diversity and a place where all religions and those with no religions should all be respected and tolerated.

Looking forward to Wednesday when all this will be over. At this point, I am thinking we should consider going back to a monarchy so we won't have to go through this horror show where billions are spent to help no one except the powers that be.

HI!!!
Praying for this election too....I Think in the end THE Right MAN will win...and I am hoping it is MITT Romney.....I think he is WHO this Country Needs NOW.

Jim said...

I like your prayers and the picture, Sandie. And yes, no matter who wins the election, God has his own plan for us that will prevail.

Dogmom Diva said...

Yes, I love the meaning of this post, it is so very true..I always think of the saying WWJD(what would Jesus do).

I hope whoever wins our election has some actual change and not just words. I know that our current presidents policies have hurt us badly as senior citizens...I will just be glad when its over with!

hugs,
Barb

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

Amen.

Debbie said...

Oh Sandie, AMEN AMEN AMEN.

That's all I need to say.

Changes in the wind said...

A well needed reminder...thanks Sandie.

BelovedBomber said...

I am voting but rest assured because my King is in control. Many blessings!

The Café Sucré Farine said...

AMEN - preach it sister! :)

Debbie said...

I'm back again because I have been thinking about a comment or two that I read after posting my AMEN.

Whether or not this nation is or has been a Christian nation isn't the point. The point is that Jesus is Lord and the ultimate King of Kings and all creation. That's what I believe you were saying.

Anyway, Amen again. In my head, I sound like Sidney Poitier.

Elizabeth said...

I'd love to have a button to wear so I could share that sentiment with the world.

Remington said...

So true!

Barb said...

There is only ONE KING so it really doesn't matter who is president. GOD is still running this country...and the world. One day things will be as HE created them to be from the beginning. Have an awesome day. Missing you. Loving you too.

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Amen, sister. Preach it!

I agree completely!

XO,

The Boston Lady said...

Tomorrow will be a most interesting day indeed. I keep to myself in regards to politics, as you know, but I must say my heart is in this race completely. Ann

LL Cool Joe said...

Couldn't agree more and thank goodness Jesus is King of everything!

EM Illustrator said...

Hugs to you my friend!!

Dee said...

Beautiful post and a beautiful blog back ground. I always feel that ever who wins is the person the Lord allows to win....for the fulfillment of His plans. I voted today !

Blondee said...

Amen, my friend!!!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Stephanie said...

So true!

mare ball said...

Yep. I need to hold onto this, b/c Obama just got re-elected. I pray the Republicans will humble themselves and give a little, so we don't waste another 4 years.

The Long Awaited Home said...

Hi Sandie, Well the election is over, and I am sure glad we only voted for a president, not a Savior. The Savior of the world is Jesus, not any person we can vote into an office. And thank God for that! That being said, it is still our responsibilty to vote our values - and I hope everyone did!
