swimming in my thoughts....

My mind is swimming today and my heart is heavy.  Interestingly, I am studying the life of Christ in my bible study.  As I read over the words this morning of the angel proclaiming Christ's birth, of Mary's joy at receiving such a great blessing, at Zechariah's proclamation of his son's name and purpose.....my heart aches at the fact that Jesus will not be proclaimed today in the news coverage.  

I have so many thoughts and words in my mind, but they don't seem to be flowing out.  However, 2 blogs have put into words many of my thoughts.  So, today I am going to send you to their blogs.  

Please take time, if you haven't already, to read Linda's and Esthermay's blogs.

Today I am praying for our new leader and our country.

My heart and mind are swimming too. Great description.
I made the decision weeks ago to completely tune out any news media today. No FoxNews. (Can you beleive it!!???) :-)
My emotions still swim in the silece of my house today, BUT. . . I am secure in God - He is still on the throne! He wrote the script and He gave us the screenplay to study!!!! Take comfort in God's Word.

. . . thank you for the link, my friend!

I can't even describe the sadness that I feel today. I will go read the links and of course, be praying along with you.

Oh, you are sweet to link up. Many of us are feeling non-celebratory and pensive. And I think that's OK.

We all should pray for our leaders. The Bible says to.

I am praying for him too. I posted a patriotic piece today and encouraged everyone to pray for our President, no matter who you voted for.
