From Sea to Shining Sea

Glenn Beck came to San Diego last week and Curtis and I bought tickets! The event was entitled "The Unelectable," and was formatted as a debate between two presidential candidates, one being your "normal" candidate who takes the entire allotment of his time during a debate avoiding the actual question, and the other candidate (Glenn Beck) giving America answers that would work fantastically well to improve our country's situation, but would not necessarily be "popular," and thus would never result in an actual election. As you can imagine with Glenn Beck, the interplay with the two "candidates" was hilarious. Despite the humorous presentation though, I was saddened by the point Glenn was trying to get across, and that is that our country is falling apart because there are so many hidden agendas from those in Washington, and too many special interest groups that are not concerned about the greater good...

God bless our country that we can elect people with strong moral values and faith in the divine providence of God, which our country was founded on.

 I loved Glenn's overall message. He ended the evening in a heartfelt plea for everyone, regardless of their religious affiliation, to get on their knees and pray for our country--to pray for the hand of the Lord to be in the affairs of our country, and to pray that we might be united as a people, for only through that unity will our country be strong. Before George Washington fought the Revolutionary War, he called for a national day of fasting and prayer. Glenn has invited us to do the same on May 17th. I would invite my readers to join with me in fasting a praying for our country on the 17th. As individuals, often we may not feel like we can do much to change the problems in our country, but this is something we can do...and there is Someone who CAN change the problems in our country, if we have the faith to turn to Him. God Bless the USA.
