Voter Satisfaction

Today, I am filled with an emotion that I only get to experience once a year. It's hard to describe. Joy. Pride. Anticipation. Satisifaction. Honor.

So, I am thankful once again for the privilege and the responsibility to vote. I am thankful that countless men and women have sacrificed their lives so that I can go fill my ballot. I am thankful for freedom. I am thankful that I got to take my son to share this experience - it is live history in the making.

I am thankful to live in a country where my vote counts. I am thankful for the opportunity to stand for the Truth. I am thankful to get to experience what it is like to choose your candidate - an experience so many others on this earth do not get to have. I am thankful that God is ultimately in control and that He is on the Throne.

I am thankful that regardless of the outcome, it will come as no surprise to Him. I am thankful that He is my God and that He cares what happens to me. I am thankful that He gave His son Jesus for me. Thankful for the freedom I can only receive through Him.

I am so very, very thankful and humbled that I got to vote today.

It is such a privilege...one that is often taken for granted.
