Pretty much the whole country has heard by now that John Mc Cain
picked Sarah Palin, the governor of Alaska as his running mate for the
2008 presidency. I don't normally talk about politics on my blog, but this
is something that I have to mention. His choice of Sarah Palin gives me
hope for this country where I was beginning to think there wasn't any.
I won't go into her politics and background on here, you can certainly read
about that yourself anywhere online. I will say that she is a very real person,
a working mom, a defender of the people, adamantly Pro-Life and at the
last pastoral convention our pastor attended Sarah Palin was the keynote
speaker. The very first words out of her mouth to the pastors was a humble
request that they cover her in prayer. She said she realizes that God is the
leader of her life and there is no leadership without Him.
I am sad that Alaska will be losing her as governor; she has done great
things for this state and she has an unheard of 80% approval rating here.
But losing her means the whole country will benefit from her leadership,
so it really is okay. I have been dreading the beginning of November, but
now I am looking forward to casting my vote.
