Today is election day and most of us are trudging to the polls voting for someone we don't really like because they are the lesser of two evils in our opinion. I don't know how it's going to turn out, either way. I have my concerns, either way, and it makes me feel very sad, as an American, to be put in this position. But HERE is a good article, written about Dr. Joe Mercola, that has some good advice about how we can all get through this difficult time. As for me, I believe God has a way of making things turn out ok, even though His timing is different than ours, and we might have to struggle through a hellish time for awhile. I am trying to remember that persistence is the path to success in any situation. Therefore, endurance is key.
I have friends and family members who vote differently than I do. But we have common ground in that we're not completely comfortable with voting the way we are. We're doing the best we can in an uncertain situation. And we love each other regardless of politics.
The things that are broken in America have built up over decades and they are not going to be fixed immediately. So no matter how they voted, America's citizens are going to be disappointed because both candidates have made promises that will be very hard to keep.
I think it's very appropriate that Christmas is just around the corner. It might make more of us remember what Christmas is all about, rather than all the insane shopping and extravagance that some have turned it into. Regardless, it will do us good to sing the old Christmas carols we so love.
Especially, Peace On Earth, Good Will To Men. With maybe a chorus of a non-Christmas selection: We Shall Overcome. In fact, HERE is Joan Baez to sing that to you. Or maybe you'd rather hear it from Mahalia Jackson HERE .
Peace and love to you. xoxoxoxo
