Did you watch the speech last night? I anticipated it all day and as she spoke I prayed, as I know many of you did also, that God would give her wisdom and peace as she brought forth her words. And it seems He did. T

his woman has already changed our country. She has shed light in the dark corners of the 'good ole boys' club. She rattled their cages and sent them scurrying to figure out how to stop this "ordinary woman" from tearing down their world of empty promises.

I loved the fact that her family seemed very unrehearsed as her daughters shuffled around the little one and primped and cuddled him. They weren't sure when to sit or stand, they seemed a bit uncomfortable with the limelight. But then, when Mom came out on stage, did you see them beam?! It was incredibly obvious that they love that woman and they are proud of her.

All the pomp and circumstance of last weeks convention, Greek columns and all, were torn down by this woman who showed us that even and especially those on the outside of Washington understand America and family better than the establishment. We see through the hollow rhetoric of hope. We don't want hype without substance. Not in our homes, not in our churches, and not in the White house.

Governor Palin said it well here: "The right reason is to challenge the status quo, to serve the common good, and to leave this nation better than we found it. No one expects us to agree on everything. But we are expected to govern with integrity, good will, clear convictions, and ... a servant's heart."

I think she will serve our country well, and I'm praying for her. Please, let's all pray for her and her family. Thank you Sarah Palin for inspiring me! You put the media, special interest groups, and the Washington big dogs in their place...and you did it in heels!
