If you live in a vacuum you are not aware of what happens on January 20th. On the other hand, if you are living, breathing and actively participating in this world of ours, you are expecting a great deal on that date as Barack Obama takes office as the President of the United States.

We are all hanging our hat on this man to be instrumental in making changes in our government to hopefully remedy all the things that need fixing. The problem is that these changes will not be instantaneous and there are many in Washington that will not support all that our President wants to do, so we must be realistic. I hope all of you are employing prayer at this monumental happening, not only supporting the promising solutions of Barack but for him. He will need guidance, patience, and a pretty thick skin. Do your part and include our country, our new president, and the soldiers and their families, just to name a few things. They all need our prayers and support.

The day is inching closer.
A new man takes the seat.
A democratic president,
We hope just can’t be beat!

Yes, miracles can happen,
But God’s the one in charge.
So if the problems can be solved,
It’s His game, by and large.

Let’s not believe Barack alone…
Can fix our world of ills.
It’s going to be a bumpy ride,
With roller coaster thrills.

He says he’ll call the Chiefs of Staff,
To end the Iraq war.
But what about Afghanistan?
Hey, troops, another tour?

Do I sound rather cynical?
That’s ‘cause I’m realistic,
And recognize our pres-elect’s
A man and not a mystic.

Our country has a laundry list
Of problems that need fixing.
The president can stir the pot,
But many do the mixing.

So watch and wait and pray a bit
And see how it takes shape,
And hope this darn recession has…
A possible escape.
