Today I am going to speak from my heart. At noon today our new President, Donald J. Trump, will be sworn into office. I pray that the Lord helps him to do the right thing for all of us Americans during his term of office. I hope and pray that he will be able to get this country back on the path of paying back the national debt. I pray that he will incentivize the private sector to create jobs and that he will fix the tax system in this country. There are many more things I hope he will do but I won't bore you.
We have not had a great economy for the past 8+ years. There are so many millions of people who are hurting and barely making ends meet. Millions of people have lost their jobs and have quit looking for work. The government has told us for the past few years that things are great. Being an accountant, I don't believe it. Our economy is in horrible shape and needs all the help this new President can give it.
I also pray that the Lord will bring all Americans together because we all want the same things. We want our country to be safe, secure, and strong. I love my neighbor whether they are white, black, hispanic or any other race. I love my neighbor whether they are Republicans, Democrats, Conservatives, Libertarians, Independents or the Green Party. I am praying that all Americans will love their neighbors too and that every person will come together for the sake of our country.
I have seen Presidents Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, G.H.W. Bush, Clinton, G.W. Bush and Obama sworn into office. Today, I will see the 20th Presidential Inauguration in my lifetime if I counted it right.
I am beyond excited! Every President has been different and I have been excited every time watching them get sworn in. But this President really makes me feel so much better than most of the others that have come before him with the exception of Ronald Reagan. It is because he is not your typical career politician. I have gotten kind of tired of the same old, same old. Politicians who promise the world and then do nothing but spend, spend, and spend our children's and grandchildren's future. I am praying and hoping that our new President Trump does his best to get our country back on track.
That said, Hubby and I will be watching the inauguration today. We will watch all of the news coverage from 9AM on and we are ready with a bottle of chilled champagne to toast the President at 12:01PM and wish him the best. Don't judge! It will be afternoon and I have waited for this for a very long time.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I will be back posting on Monday.
