On Monday, I received a blessing of comfort from my husband because of the frustrations I have been feeling. It calmed me down a bit and has allowed me to reflect on my emotions and my thoughts. Here they are:
In the grand scheme of things, my life will not be spiritually impacted by who wins today's presidential race.
Yes, the election might eventually impact our income, or how much a tank of gas costs, or change our tax rates or our health care... but these are earthly monetary issues.
The President of the United States has no power over what goes on within the walls of our home. He has no power over my spiritual growth or my children's testimonies or my husbands willingness to serve in the Kingdom of God.
Wednesday morning, I will still get up and take my daughters to seminary. We will pray together. I will study my Book of Mormon. My top priorities will not change.
