    Our gracious heavenly father has promised his children that he is interested with even the tiniest occurrences in our life and has promised to be with us always. Matthew 6 mentions how he knows what we need before we even ask him. This spiritual insight brings comfort and peace to our souls as we realize that God is constantly aware and always concerned about us.

Sadly, it was reported that both candidates were more strongly disliked than any nominees in the past ten presidential cycles.
