Why Vote???...thoughts of a 4 year old...

This morning while I was getting ready Jackson cornered me with the usual 20 questions. Here is an excerpt of our conversation:

Jackson - "Mommy where are we going today?"

Me - "Well you and sissy are going to mom's day out and mommy is going to run some
errands"

Jackson - "Oh, what kind of errands?"

Me - "Well the most important thing I am going to do today is vote."

Jackson - "What is vote?"

Me - "It's where we choose who is going to be our leader"

Jackson - "Mommy, why do you have to vote on that, Jesus is our leader"

I know I have said this before, but if only we could all have the faith of a child.

Hope everyone got out and voted today. If you have not, there is still time so GO VOTE!

Hey Jess,
As I sit and think about last night and the turn of our nation, I read Jackson's words"That Jesus is our Leader" and know God is calling us to have faith, trust, peace and look to Him for all the answers, now more than ever!! He knew the future and now is telling us to just look up!! And I didn't give a vote for Madaline's hair, my fav is #1, but hey that face is so cute it really doesn't matter!! I hope to see you soon! Hugs! Tasha
