Well, here we are, Election Day. Finally. Today is the day that every Christian will wait with baited breathe to see if God has heard and answered our prayers. Today is the day that we will all be praying like never before for our candidate and for our country.

Everyone asks me what I’m enjoying most about our visit here in England, and aside from time with my children, I am enjoying exploring the unfamiliar. And I’m finding that I really like it here, and I am very excited about making some of the unfamiliar into the familiar.

Sometimes I think I’d like to look ahead and see into our grandchildren’s future, but if I could, would I look here for more
