It Really Happened.

Just called the race a few moments ago. President-Elect Obama. Tears are streaming down my face.

Now it's time to get serious about our faith and trust in God. He's still in control.

Another sad family here tonight... God save us from ourselves. It's consoling to be reminded that this is all part of the bigger plan~ the one where our MAN does win in the end! There will be no concession speeches on our side at the end of all things...

There's very much a silver lining to this cloud: America has proved that racial bigotry is no longer a barrier to the highest office in our land. Both abortion and racism denigrate the image of God in human beings, and although I grieve that President-elect Obama will encourage pro-abortion policy, I rejoice that America has moved beyond racial politics. That doesn't mean I won't oppose his policies or appointments, but I do appreciate his election for that reason.

I can't help but be moved by those I know who never thought America was their country, never thought they had a real say in what happened in Washington until Tuesday night. A few weeks ago, I sat in the bus where Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat. It was such a moving experience to realize that in about half a century, we've moved from a black woman being forced to stand in a bus for a white man to sit to having an African-American President flying in Air Force I.

I am likewise sad, although I'm not crying. I'm looking forward to 2012. I worked hard in this election, and am disappointed in the results. But I have to agree with Tim. I'm proud of my country for President Obama's election.
