OK, I'll Vote

I have wrestled and prayed and debated myself. Funny thing. It was a conversation in the car with my girls that made me realize what I have to do. When you are breaking things down into language that an 11 and 9 year old can understand all of a sudden the lingo, spinning, and brainwashing are left out. You find yourself staring at something that actually is right or wrong, good or bad. Madeline, you are wise beyond your years. Thanks for setting me straight(: The beautiful thing is that SHE also knows that God is our ultimate leader, and so we all got out of the car feeling quite peaceful. God is not taken by surprise by anything, and no matter who is in office, HE is in control. I have no illusions that a man can change things, or that a man is going create for America a new moral compass. So, I will vote my conscience and let God sort it out.

Whatever choice people are making is ok- but everyone must vote. Have you seen Iron Jawed Angels? (Movie about suffrage?)
If not, check it out. We all need to exercise our right to vote!
Praying over this election heavily!

I love Sarah - but I disagree. Voting is a right and a privilege - but not a biblical madate -- and some of us have come to have zero belief in the system of gov't and politics ... systems of of this world --- knowing we are made for another world Troy and I voted by NOT voting. I think there is a lot of hype that says you MUST vote --- and HOW can you call yourself a Christian if you don't!?!?!? I don't buy that stuff at all. My vote or not vote is between me and God and if I go to Him in prayer and come out feeling that I am NOT supposed to vote ... it would be crazy not to listen to that.

Just my two cents long after the election.
