This week has felt like a roller coaster ride. First it was the Canucks losing, and losing, but finally winning in game seven of their series against Chicago. Then there were the polls. Let's just say that unless you're an NDP supporter, the polls predicting the upcoming federal election results have been less than reassuring. But they were followed by the beautiful Royal Wedding. That was followed by more polls. Our trip to Kamloops on the weekend to visit kids and grandkids was another high. We are now facing tonight and the election results. Will that be up or down?
432. A Royal Wedding, complete with traditional Christian scriptures and vows on view for the whole world to see.
439. Little boys wrestling (What is it with little boys and wrestling? When my son was little, he and his best buddy couldn't be together for five minutes before they were wrestling!)
441. A God who reigns, no matter who wins any old election:
"For God is king of all the earth....
God reigns over the nations (Canada too!)
God sits on His holy throne" - Psalm 47:78
442. Tomorrow's headlines across Canada (for while I've written this, the election results have come in.)
