I'm sure it was an oversight. Somehow, Malia and Sasha forgot to let me know the plan for tonight. While Mom and Dad are out tripping the light fantastic, the girls are parked at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue for movie night with their friends. Bolt and High School Musical 3 are on the marquee.
My guess is that ten-year-old Malia and seven-year-old Sasha won't make it past the opening credits. What a day it must have been for these beautiful children! They draw my imagination tonight.
To all the calls for prayer for America's new president, I add a special request for these two little girls. It is hard to imagine the challenges they will face growing up in a world-wide spotlight. So as they struggle to keep those peepers open tonight, let's pray that God would give them a special grace to meet the days ahead. May He work in their lives in a way that brings Him glory. Sweet dreams, little ones!
May you feel His grace today,
(Stop by tomorrow for a stretch of Yes to God Tuesdays into the day after).

The last Word:
The Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace.
