Goodness! It’s been too long since I’ve written anything. I miss the Five Minute Friday community so much. Time to get back into the swing of things. The prompt this week is “unite” and here are my random thoughts for the week:
I’m not a political person. If you are looking for a Facebook feed that is free of politics, then I am your friend. It’s not that I don’t have convictions; it’s simply the face that politics have become more divisive than ever. I have friends from both sides of the aisle, and to say anything would simply bring division.
We’re supposed to be the United States of America, but we are far from united. Our disagreements have gone beyond differing philosophies of government. It’s become personal and more forceful. There are few issues, such as holding a pr0-life view, that I will adamantly uphold. But to hold every issue as personal can only bring more pain and divisiveness.
I don’t know what the solution is. I’m starting to think it was a mistake to become pregnant during an election year, because I become more annoyed and irritated with politics this year then ever. The only thing I can do is pray. Even if the ideal candidate is not elected in office, we can trust in a God who is the Ultimate Governor and King of Kings regardless of what citizenship we hold. At some point, it works out for His good and not for our own.
Five Minute Friday is a weekly challenge where bloggers write on a prompt for five solid minutes. Check out Kate’s website for more details and the link-up.
