Gratituesday

I am so thankful to be living in a country where we are free to make our own decisions. Today as the children and I watched the inauguration of Barack Obama I started thinking about how far our country has come. Regardless of who you voted for we are commanded by God to respect our government. Is it easy? NO. So we need to be lifting them up in prayer each day and turning it over to God. God has placed Obama in the office of President for a reason that will only bring him glory in the end. The time of Christ's return is coming quickly. It may even be in mine or your lifetime. The world will only get worse before it gets better. Have you accepted Christ as your personal Savior? Please don't wait until tomorrow. If you do not know how to do so please email me or ask someone. Tomorrow may be to late.

So for school today we watched and discussed the new president. Here are some pictures of the them watching. They were so full of questions, some I could answer and others I couldn't. It is great to see how their minds work in this time of history.

We watched the inauguration too. It was definitely an educational experience for the kids. They had never seen one before.
