History was definitely made last night as America elected our first ever black President. It's exciting to see how far our country has come. Chris and I along with 95% of our family were devastated that Obama won the presidency. It literally made me sick.

He is our new leader and I will respect him. I'm just thankful that God is in control and has a plan through all of this. At the end of the day it is Him we are accountable to. My prayer is for peace and protection over this great land. God bless America.

And then we sucked out the old volcano rock and put in this fire glass fr
