Election Day in the United States of America.

Today we will elect the 45th President of the United States.

As we prayerfully await the results, consider a lesson from history.

In the 1830s, French author, Alexis de Tocqueville, toured the United States and later reflected about his experience. He wrote:

I have toured America, and I have seen most of what you offer. I’ve seen the richness of the fields and the wealth of your mines. I’ve seen your industrial might, the beauties of the rivers, the streams, the lakes, and the grandeur of the mountains. I’ve noticed the abundance of the forests and the marvelous climate with which you are blessed.

In none of these things did I see the cause for the greatness of America.

It wasn’t until I went into your churches that I saw the reason for America’s greatness. America is great because America is good; and as long as America is good, America will be great. If it ever ceases to be good, it will cease to be great.

Today pray for our nation.

May God bless America, land that we love.

  1. You know how a song gets stuck in your head? Well, yesterday a song from my childhood was stuck there …”This is my Father’s world” Yes it is !!! It gave me a peaceful feeling as went through my day. Let us remember to be good caretakers…. in all ways.

  2. Amen!

    I’m wearing a purple shirt today as a sign of our need to reunify as a nation. Of course, there can be no true unity apart from uniting with and through the Triune God.
