Prayers for former Governor Bob McDonnell

Bob McDonnellBy Lynn R. Mitchell

“Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.” –Mother Teresa

My thoughts drift tonight to Bob McDonnell….

I sincerely hope the judge takes the 440 character letters submitted on Bob’s behalf into consideration while deciding the fate of a man’s life, a man who has spent most of his life in service to the citizens of Virginia and America, a military man who spent decades serving his country, and a man who always had time to speak.

On my bookcase sits a photo of Bob and my husband, both smiling for the camera, taken by yours truly.  My husband brought it to the living room when Bob went on trial during the summer and proclaimed he wanted everyone to see it, his way of showing support.  It has not been moved and I suspect it will stay there for a long time.

A good man’s fate will be decided in less than 12 hours. Many prayers will be offered up tonight….
