Election Night in Mississippi

I had the privilege of being in Mississippi this past election evening to celebrate my boss' re-election as the Third District Congressman in Mississippi.  It was a special night and fun to see so many familiar faces of friends back home in God's Country.

Beautiful, beautiful flag!


My parents came with me--we had a great time together!

The nature of an election night means that some will be happy with the results while others will inevitably be disappointed. Whether you were jumping with joy on Tuesday evening or wishing the outcome was different, there are many reasons for all of us to celebrate: the ability to vote and peaceful elections being at the top of my list!

My dear friend Mary Ellis sent me an email earlier this week prior to the election with these reminders:

After the election is over, I can predict (and guarantee) the following results:
1. God will still be on His throne
2. Jesus will still be King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
3. The Bible will still have all the answers to every problem.
4. The tomb will still be empty.
5. Jesus will still be the only way to heaven

6. Prayer will still work - it will still make a difference and God will still answer prayer
7. The cross, not the government, will still be our salvation
8. There will still be room at the cross. 
9. Jesus will still save anyone who places their faith and trust in Him.

10. God will still be with us always - He will never leave us or forsake us.


My prayer for our nation is that we will all learn how to work together--because our leaders are merely a reflection of the electorate.  I am so thankful to be a citizen of this amazing country and I look forward to our future.  We are all so blessed.

Can I get an A-men?
