if you prayed, studied and voted your convictions, then your work is done. As a Christian, a husband, a father and a pastor, I voted based on my heartfelt convictions as found in Scripture. We may disagree, but that is the beauty of the freedom at the foundation of the United States of America which has been bought and paid for with the blood of men and women of every color and creed, both natural-born and naturalized American citizens. If you chose not to vote, you have no voice. If you voted and your choice is not “victorious” this night or in the days to come, find good in the people who feel differently than you do. Your neighbor is NOT your enemy. This amazing country, despite her struggles, is truly a light to the world. This is a time during which the world watches and dreams of one day having the same freedom to express heartfelt convictions without fear of punishment. I’m praying right now that our nation will, through this exercise in freedom, shine no matter the results. We are better than riots. We are better than name calling. We are Americans. In fact, I’m a Christian American who loves you dearly!
