Post Note on Previous Post



POST NOTE:
Lest you think that I posted my previous post to let the world know my daughter's amazingly high IQ, I must add that is not at all the case. While I do, of course, think she is a bright, little girl, (what parent doesn't!) this is more a tribute to her uncanny knack at picking up things in pop culture and using them correctly in conversation. Since the day she was 2 and she busted out "That's Smoking HOT!" we just have to laugh at the things she says. I would venture to say she has little to no grasp of the policies of our two candidates or even exactly who Honest Abe is. But when she said that, it just sounded right. We seem to need someone who really IS going to cut through all the CRUD out there and be a true American leader. In one of the classes I teach, one of my students did an excellent presentation about Booker T. Washington. I knew who Booker T. was before that presentation, but not of his character. He was an incredible leader. That presentation made me truly LONG for someone in this day and age who will lead fearlessly, fight vigorously, and guide our country in a way we sorely need. That's the kind of man I wish for and pray for to be president of this amazing country. I'm not sure we will get that with either candidate tomorrow; however, I believe that God's mighty hand is in charge and will lead us through. For a great post on the spiritual perspective for tomorrow's election, look at my friend Katie's post here!

All we can do is put in our vote and know that God is in charge. Thanks for the link to Katie's site. I loved the scripture she had on there. I think your daughter is precious. She sounds like she is very smart.

I LOVE Scrapblog! It's so much fun.

Nice post! I also went to Katie's blog and commented.

It's nice to be reminded that God is in control no matter who is in the white house. I just think we are really going to have to rely on Him more in the years to come.

Several sidenotes...

1) Tuesday at school I had a student tell me that he had voted for (drum roll please...) JOMAMA and that the rest of his class had voted for MCFLAILIN' in their class election...

2) Remember when I read Froggy's Halloween to the girls when Ellie was about 2 years old... she started singing the "Trick or Treat, Smell my Feet" song after I left... :)
