IN THE NEWS:
* Clinton addresses constituency; call for unity
* Trump heads to White House today to meet with Obama
* Protests break out in more than a dozen cities
IN THE WORD:
This Week’s Verse: Ephesians 5:28
In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.
Troubles almost always make us look to God, but His blessings tend to divert our attention elsewhere ~ Oswald Chambers
IN MY LIFE
* I, like many of you, stayed up well into the morning hours watching this historic election and so I couldn’t pull it together to come to you yesterday and perhaps that was for the best. I mentioned I’ve had peace for a few days now, regardless of what the outcome would have been. But it appears our country is in shambles now.
I will never pretend to put myself in the experience of life that someone else has experienced, but boycotting our nation is not an option. If our elected officials – who have been bashing each other for over a year – can put aside differences for unity, we owe it to ourselves and our country to do the same.
Yesterday was also emotional because my daughter had day 2 of basketball tryouts and unfortunately, didn’t make it. My heart hurts for her, but I know these failures are part of her young life and how she moves on past them will most likely develop her character more than if she had actually made the team.
