Ditto to all that. *sigh* However, I take comfort in the fact that God knows beforehand what's going to happen, and He's still got a plan. I think this election simply illustrates that while the political sphere is important, our own personal walk with God is *more* important, and we as a church need to be sticking to our convictions and doing what He's told us to do. Political losses are generally symptoms, not causes. This is all merely a symptom of societal changes that have been going on for a long time. While I'm mightily depressed, I don't intend to let it get me down too much. So we pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and plug away at the truly important things. (And, y'know, watch the president, Congress, and Senate like hawks, like we should be doing anyway...)
I'm looking forward to going back to being able to read my Friend's List anyway. It hasn’t really been that fun lately.
