New Leadership

All right, ladies. Now is the time to pray for our nation's new leaders. Tomorrow is the day.

This is one of those rare, rare times I wish we had TV. I've tried to find live coverage on the internet but I think we'll just go to the local Sears outlet in town. They always have too many televisions turned on, blaring nonsense. I'm sure they'll be turned in. Chad really wants to see the swearing-in live and I don't blame him. I think this whole thing is being blown out of proportion but that's just my opinion. I'll be so glad when it's over. Well, maybe. I still have to laugh about something I heard on the radio back during Mr. Obama's campaign. He was speaking somewhere about how things were in our nation, currently. Referring to how things would be if he were elected, his comment was, "It couldn't be worse!" Oh, I hope he is right!

We will see.

(End of my political opinion.)

The inauguration is over; only time will tell how things will go. So, we'll be busy praying for this one like we did the last few!

After having watched it on-line I would say you were right, it was definately blown out of proportion. We'll just keep praying!

As that was televised live, it started at about 11.30pm over here and we went to bed. But it was repeated the following day. I have to say, parts reminded me of our Christmas Pageant. The journalist was saying, "Oh look everyone, there's President Barack Obama now. Let's give him a big wave. Oh, I don't think he can see us." It sounded just like waiting for Santa Claus.
We'll keep following the international news with interest.

Guess what? I've been wondering what you've been up to, so I crossed over to your other blog and read some. My oldest son (Scarlet Pimpernel) will be reading Hamilton's "Federalist Papers" in about a month. Maybe I'll have him discuss some of it with you as part of his assignment!
