Why I'm here....

Since I've always been quick with an opinion an old friend once lost and again found suggested that perhaps I should share with more people my commentary. Never being one to pass on a challenge I thought I'd give it a whirl.

There are mild stones and turning points all throughout our lives.  Life seems to move so quickly that if we are not careful we will not see the curve or bend in the path we are traveling.  Looking back on my own life it amazes me at how much things in my life have changed.  It puzzles me at times as to how and when things that mattered to me so much changed.  I suppose it changed for me the most almost a year ago.  I decided to turn my life back over to God.  No, I am not saying I am saved.  God and I are working on it though.  I’ve known a peace that is hard to describe.  When I start worrying over things and yes I do at times, I pray to the Father to help me and I tell him I command my life into your hands, your will be done.  So with this election as with anything else as of late I prayed.  My inner soul was lost and torn between issues and friends and family.  Never have I known an election that has torn so many in so many directions.  As with everything though the path is only clear if you allow yourself to see it with unencumbered eyes.  For me the choice was not an easy one, but in the end I had to go with where I felt the Lord would want me to go.  No, I’m not saying God cares about politics, but in the end I could not stand for someone who so openly dis-regarded the life of an innocent baby.  Funny thing is I wanted her in office when Barrack Obama was running.  I voted for him.  Both times.  Not because I thought he was all that awesome but because I couldn’t see voting in the other contender.   All in all I do not think he’s been a very good president.  He’s not been the worst ever as some would say but he’s definitely done things I do not agree with or like.  Comes down to it though I do believe he’s a good man and that although I may not agree with him he’s more than likely being led by his own inner voices to do what he feels is right.  Why do we as a people want to say otherwise?  All comments on this should be in boxed to me.  Please do not post comments on my Facebook under this as they will be deleted.  I do not want a war on Facebook.  I do not want friend against friend or bother against sister or anything else.  We should be able to disagree without having confrontation.  There are no winners when people protest with hate and violence.  Yes protest if you wish peacefully.  This is not the way it will be though.  In the end brother will be against brother and father against son.  So it is written.  I find no desire to argue or be angry with anyone.  Everyone has their right to think and believe the way they feel.   Hopefully our new president elect Donald Trump will do great things for us, but if he doesn’t he doesn’t.  Our country needs solidarity.  Our country needs to stop being a whining nation of people who want our government to take care of them.  We need to stand tall and proud.  I love our country, but I love God more.  What he has set forth no one will set aside.  I love my family and I love all my friends.  I trust that time will heal those wounded by the election.  I trust that God will see us through if we put our faith in him.  Time is fleeting.  This day will soon be long behind us.   There are so many other things yet to come.  So many corners we need to watch for as we travel on life’s journey.
