election day - past and present

Ahh...to be 18 again, coming off the Reagan era - let's just say I was a very enthusiastic first time voter! Before the age of digital cameras and blogging - I took pictures of this big occassion (kinda quirky)...

my favorite yard in the neighborhood where I grew up- I always dreamed of having flag pole in my front yard someday....maybe I should move to Tennessee first as it seems a little redneck for CA.......

and I wore red, white and blue - of course! complete with my George Bush button. So full of hope and optimism - and paying so little taxes :)

Today, 20 years later -

I vote and I pray. I worry a little. I know Him who knows all things. I hate that evil is being called good and good is being called evil.
Yet, there is nothing new under the sun.
"Secularism advances, only as orthodoxy retreats. As surely as we yield the ground staked out for the church, the barbarians will advance to claim the terrain."
Charles Colson
