Unleashing the un-techiness of Kendra

Ack, I can't figure out how to put anything on here! Facebook was not this hard....haha.
I can't figure out how to get a different background on here, I only got part of one, and I can't figure out how to get my music playlist on here! I suppose I shall figure it eventually.... :P

Of votes and notecards....

Wow...election day is over. We have a new president, Barack Obama.
I had to work all night, and as I sat in the back room, I listened to the news on the radio...and as I listened to the updates on the votes, I kept thinking why? Why does Obama have to be ahead? Why God are you letting this man in? The last hour of work I had to tear myself away from the back room and go clean up the library before we closed. As I picked up some books off a table in the children's section, there was a notecard sitting faceup on the table. As I leaned over to grab it, the words shouted off the card: "Trust in the Lord with all your heart." Wow. God wanted me to find that notecard with its message. I think sometimes I get caught up in whats wrong, and wishing I could do something, but I need to bring it all back to God. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart." It was the perfect reminder for me...just waiting on the table for me to find it. I love how God works like that. When I got to my locker at the end of work, I had a text from my friend Maddy...she told me who won the election. It seemed wierd, because we still had people in our meeting room voting! But that is how it goes. I cried as I drove home. I am scared for my country and its people. But, I do have hope. God is in control. Christians need to be on their knees before Him praying faithfully for this country. God has a plan. If McCain was meant to be our president, God would have allowed him to win. God knows what He is doing, and I am going to trust that.
I wish that our country was what it used to be...with foundations built on God. I miss our founding fathers and their morals and beliefs. That is what our country needs right now. Our world is just going so downhill, and it seems so many people have turned from God. These next four years are going to be a huge test of faith. I am so determined to live my life out for God and be a shining light to people, and I pray God will keep giving me the strength. We as Christians can stand strong.
Well, I think I am going to go to has been an extremely hectic day. Work was one of the most crazy days I have ever seen at the library, because we had a ton of people coming in to vote. So I am drained physically, mentally, and emotionally.
But I leave you with a word of encouragement on this election day '08. God knows what He is doing. He knows our every need and He will get us through times we are distraught. Place your hope and faith in Him and He will get us through.
"But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:31
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." Jeremiah 29:11-13
Seek God and stay strong. Through Him all things are possible. Goodnight everyone.

This was played on the news a couple of days ago...I put it here in a link, since I cannot yet figure out how to post videos on here :P

Dear Mr. Obama:

Tomorrow is election day!!

A time for change...

Well...I thought I would start this blog over with a fresh start, I haven't posted in about 6 monthes! Seasons of life change, and I am in a completely different spot than I was then and I am a much happier person :)

As we get closer and closer to our upcoming election on Tuesday, I keep praying things will turn out right. I know God is in control of how the election turns out. This election is going to be really close as far as I know, but I am praying McCain and Palin come out ahead in the end! It makes me really nervous to think about Obama leading the country, especially with our economy the way it is right now! Yes, change can be a good thing, but not the kind I feel he is going to bring.
I am really excited I get to vote this election, and make my voice be heard for the first time :) All Christians need to be on our knees daily praying for the future of our country and its leadership. will be here soon....
Anyway...I am off to work...I just wanted to share some of my thoughts on the election and let everyone know I am back! :P Hello all!
