My thoughts with a Romney loss

Romney lost the presidential election last night. At that realization I felt sad and depressed that the majority chose Obama, the man who failed America, the man who pushed us further into debt and wants a smaller America.
I went to bed, tossed and turned, and woke-up in the night. I had dreamed that I was traveling in a wasteland and came to a body of water, that was kind of dirty, but not so bad that you couldn’t swim in it. But then I traveled to another — drained muddy lake — the water was gone and mud was left. Mitt Romney was standing on the bank with a hose, trying to fill the lake with fresh clean water, but because of the mud, the water became murky and dark and obviously not suitable for anything, not swimming, not drinking. The clean water would not stay clean in the muddy pit. I woke up, feeling a sense of doom, sadness for Romney, for all the people who fought the good fight.
But I understand and have faith that God is in charge. I have rationalized that Romney passed the test, the real test of what you do to promote good. Perhaps God has saved him from the next four years, or from being killed by angry Obama supporters who said they would assassinate him if he became president.
Ann and Mitt Romney passed the Abraham test. Mitt sacrificed his time and talents to try to save our country. Ann worked just as hard. But at the end of the day, the Lord has not required him to tackle this job, even though he was willing and wanting to do it. That’s the true test — you are willing to put your life on the line. Maybe his loss is a blessing for his family. And our country is going down, as I believe it will happen, when the majority no longer believe in God. I was hoping it wasn’t that time.
But hey, at least Mormons are off the cult list. Romney has done more good for the Mormons than I could have anticipated. My brother-in-law is the mission president in Alabama and he has reported that the people are more receptive and accepting of us.
