Throughout this election season, I kept hearing about those of us of faith, who chose is influence greatly by their religious beliefs. For many, religion, right or wrong is the only factor.
I am cannot speak for others, nor would I dare to. I can only speak for Mark and I.
Our G-d, our Faith, G-d's Word, the Holy Scriptures are the center of our home, our hearts, our marriage. Torah is the guiding force in our lives. It isn't something we slip on and off like a cloak; it is who we are.
And so is prayer.
From the time I was a child and taught to pray, I was taught to pray for whoever was President of the Untied States. That G-d would grant him wisdom to lead this great nation.
Presidents Kenndey, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush I, Clinton, Bush II, and now Mr.Obama.
Last night, before we went to bed, we prayed for President Bush, as we always do. But this night, we included President Elect Obma and his family.
This morning, they were included in our prayers.
That is what we, who's faith and beliefs govern our lives, do.
