1 Timothy 2:1-2~
Our Little Guy here hardly has his eyes opened when he comes to me each day and says, "Mama, I have a dream...." He loves to tell me about the dream he had the night before. The way he phrases it I can't help but think of Martin Luther King Jr's famous "I have a dream.." speech.
I am so thankful that today as the first black President of the United States is sworn in my little boy won't have to dream of a place where a black man could be President. He is free to dream of dinosaurs and birthday parties and going to outer space. For our children having a black President is going to be normal. Amazing! How far we have come in America!
I do not agree with some of the politics of Barak Obama but I am thankful to live in a country where equality is available to all regardless of their heritage of their skin color.
I pray and will be praying for Barak Obama and his family . May he seek wisdom from God as he leads us these next 4 years.
I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. 1 Tomothy 2:1-2~
