It's five days later and we still don't really know what's going on with the national government of the UK.
That said, at least there was a high turn out at the ballot box.
I've read a fair bit about what's been happening and watching people's comments on Twitter has been a laugh. But at the end of the day, none of us knows what is coming.
Will a swathe of collective despair at the Tories being *in charge* actually mean that they are as bad as we expect, or can we just wait and see what happens?
For all that our politicians are a funny bunch, we must remember that they are people, just like the rest of us. They are mortal, just like the rest of us. They feel pain and share joy, just like the rest of us. They even need to go to the loo, just like (most of) us.
So, whatever the next few hours, days, weeks, months and years have in store, my hope is not in people, power or even people in power. My faith is that Jesus is alive and that means there's a whole heap of hope (is that the collective noun) for the future.
