My feelings today were strange. The most prominent one was that of disappointment. Not disappointment in the result because the results still aren't in as I type this. I haven't even seen any preliminary results.
But, do you know how very cool I think it would've been to have helped vote the first black American president into office? I am hoping that this particular black American won't win (Obama) and that I will still get that chance. But, oh that Barack were really good.
He seems to be just that. He looks to be so very kind and gentle, so calm and endearing, so patient...a man just oozing integrity. Too bad we can't ever go by looks alone. (By the way, this is obviously not at all mentioned to try to convince you how to vote...too late for that. But, this is very interesting, so just thought I'd pass this along.)
Seriously, I wish he were what he seems to be. I really do. But, it isn't so. Not this time. It grieves me. I love the idea of him and what he seems to represent (as far as goodness). Sad that his record and true beliefs prove differently.
I can't wait for a truly good black American to come along and sweep us off our feet...one who is truly who he seems to be, one who really walks with God and lives according to His principles. That will be a glorious day.
