Off to Vote

As our nation goes to the polls today to exercise our privilege to vote, it is comforting to realize that our ultimate ruler is God.

Psalm 47:1-9

"O Clap your hands, all peoples; shout to God with the voice of joy. For the LORD Most High is to be feared, a great King over all the earth. He subdues peoples under us, and nations under our feet. He chooses our inheritance for us, the glory of Jacob whom He loves. Selah.

"God has ascended with a shout, the LORD, with the sound of a trumpet. Sing praises to God, sing praises; sing praises to our King, sing praises. For God is the King of all the earth; sing praises with a skillful psalm. God reigns over the nations, God sits on His holy throne. The princes of the people have assembled themselves as the people of the God of Abraham; for the shields of the earth belong to God; He is highly exalted."

Patriotic cupcakes increased the children's enthusiasm for today's election, and prayers for our country reminded us that we are "one nation under God."
