Do you have any idea what it is like
to watch election returns
while fasting to prep for blood work?
It is pure torture.
As the returns came back last evening,
each one pointing to
the lessening of my candidate's chances
I yearned to nibble.
There were jellybeans in a bowl
just across the room.
I could have been there
in mere seconds.
One swipe of the hand
and they would have been mine.
that was not to be.
Just as my choice for president
was not supposed to win.
today I am going to go and get
that bloodwork done.
I'll move on.
And so will our Country.
We will make the best of it.
I'm sad because I believe that so many
are enslaved to the check that comes in the mail
I'm sad because the family values that my candidate
would have supported have been discarded.
But, you know what?
This is apparently what "we" want.
I will pray that God will show His people
how we can show His love to those around us.
I don't believe that spewing hate
and despair is the answer.
that just doesn't seem Christlike.
Can you imagine?
just as I had to put aside the desire for
Yes there might be a political implication
if you are old enough to get it.....
I will wait and see what
God will do
over these next four years.
God is definitely not dead.
He is at work.
His purposes are never wrong.
