Some of those same fears have been reappearing in the last few days. I was up in the middle of the night last night (as usual being 33 weeks pregnant) and I could not stop thinking about the election. I laid there in bed and prayed for a long time.

I hope that you vote today, but more importantly I hope you trust God today.
