Today I see God's grace in these gifts:
#19: life in a nation where voting is a peaceful process. half the nation may be upset by the outcomes, but gratefully life - and our democracy - will most likely still go on (c'mon, you never *really* know...)
#20: buses, trains, and subways! I love public transportation. :-D
#21: because I'm having trouble coming up with a third I really like, I'm thankful for the policies and positions and posturing I don't like - and for the hard decisions these elections bring - because they remind me that this world will not last, and that only Christ brings real hope and change and peace to our nation and the world.
