A moment

Okay so I am going to take this one post to talk about something non baby, non crafty, non house.  I promise I will limit it to this one post. 

I am not a political person.  I don't pretend to understand things.  I don't pretend to have opinion on things I know nothing about or not enough about.  Politics give me a headache.  I feel like they are a necessary evil. With all that said, I did vote yesterday, because it is my right and my responsibility.  If nothing else I went to vote for all the darn amendments and laws they like to add all the stinking time. 

Now to the purpose.  Can't we all just get along.  I hate that people are throwing around Christianity like it makes someone better than someone else.  Like it gives anyone the right to be hateful, racists or judgemental.  My faith in God and my need for him in my life does not give me any sort of extra ability to say what ever comes to my head.  Instead it gives me the responsibility to love you, to show you how Jesus loves. 
I will not tell you who I voted for.  I didn't even tell Sour.  Its not because I am ashamed or embarrassed or prideful.  It is because I voted with my heart and what I felt at peace with.  I honestly thing both candidates stunk.  Neither one lined up with what I want for Luke in life, but the truth is that's not their responsibility. 

You know who lines up with what I want for Luke?  My Lord and Savior.  He is my King.  He is who I answer to at the end of the day.  He is the one who knows the future and the outcome.  And what he is calling me to do is honor the office and to pray for whoever is in that office.  This Country is not my home.  I am not of this world, and I strive daily to remember that.  But I also have to remember that God calls to abide by the laws of the land. 

So in conclusion, I am so over the hatefulness!  Because some one's opinion differs from yours doesn't make them stupid or uninformed or anything else rude you can think of.  My dad says it best, "opinions are like butt holes everyone has them and they all stink!"

So today I am rejoicing in another day to carry this sweet little guy!  I am rejoicing in one day closer to meeting and holding Luke.  I am rejoicing in knowing that God has blessed me about as much as I could have imagined.  And to bless Him back, I am going to love his people!
