Cindy’s Thoughts on the Inauguration

headshot 1

Some people say if you attend an inauguration, it is an experience you will never forget.  I wasn’t so sure about that until I talked with my 96 year old Mother in Law a couple of days ago.  She said she remembered being at an inauguration when she was 4 years old.  She said she remembered sitting on her father’s shoulders and it was in March.  It was the inauguration of Calvin Coolidge.  I guess that’s close enough to remembering it for the rest of your life.

I didn’t attend this inauguration but I did watch it on TV – the laying of the wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns, some of the concert, the inauguration itself, the remarks at the luncheon, the parade, the signing of the documents, including a few executive orders, the balls.  It was glorious –  especially the speech.  I wanted to share a few of my thoughts before we hear from those who were actually present at the inauguration.

Donald Trump is already fulfilling his campaign promises.  It is such an exhilaration to see a politician keep his word.

A lot of people feel Donald Trump, whether or not he is a Christian, has been sent by God to restore our country like Cyrus in the Bible, a non-beliver who was sent by God to restore the nation of Israel.  I think this has only happened as a response to the prayers of God’s people.  We should not for a moment think that now that Trump is president, the game is won.  There are more people arrayed against the president than I have ever witnessed being against a president.  Some of them are even now plotting to impeach him.  It is not time to stop praying for him, but time to earnestly pray for his safety, protection and the success of his policies.  And while we are at it, we should also pray for Congress and the Supreme Court, too.  I think one thing the Democrats fear is that his policies WILL be successful and the cause of socialism will lose its supporters.  They will not just sit back and let that happen.  The day after the Inauguration they were ramping up the opposition.  And it will continue.


I feel that success in Washington this year will help us have a Victory in Virginia in November.
