Choose Ye This Day....Who?

Wtih all of the election debates, commercials, public statements, interviews and campaining, it is no wonder we are all confused.  This candidate believes in this and that candidate believes in that.  He said this and she said that.  He did this and she did that.  WHAT? If you are anything like me, you are ready for this circus to be over.  Yes circus.  I am almost 50 years old and have seen many election campaigns and I must say this is by far the worse.

A Democrat by party, I was not sure going into this election who I would vote for and now, even more confused as to why I should vote if all we have are these two candidates.  I will say that of course Hillary Clinton would have to be my choice if I did vote for a President because who would want a ranting and raving, full of himself, temperamental candidate such as Donald Trump in office?  Sadly to say, many would.  But I have to be more informed than this.  After watching two Presidential Debates, I am convinced that Hillary would be my BEST choice.  I need a President who knows how congress works and who has been with the troops and heard briefings and met with some of the worlds most powerful leaders.  Someone who is level headed and sound in his/her reasonings.

No Hillary is not without fault...she could have handled the email scandal better and been more transparent but it seems that lately, those who have read those emails say..there is nothing in there.  Was she wrong for deleting them...yes.  Will that make a difference in my vote for  As Americans we are all faced with a great dilema.  Who would make the better President?  Who will have my best interest at heart and the best interest of our country?  Who will fight for women's rights and the equal rights of all Americans?  Who will listen with reason and not make a decision based on how they are FEELING at the moment?

Who you choose for President is of course your business and your choice. Who I choose is too but as an American please be well informed of each candidate.  Where they stand on foreign policy and domestic policy.  What they believe in terms of the rights of each minority group.  What do they believe is grounds for declaring war and when they believe our troops should go step in and when they should not.  What about their views on healthcare and social security?  Who's concedrned about the education and welfare of our children? Who will adjust the tax code?  Are they coming in with their personal agenda to benefit themselves and others like them or are they concerned with each class of individuals be it lower, middle or upper?

Ask yourself these important questions.  Decide who you think will be best and VOTE.  Let your voice be heard because if you don't others will give you their voice!

Press In Your Pain

It has been a while since my last post but a lot has happened in and around me.  Some good, some not so good, but all came together to make me a stronger woman and for that, I am most thankful.  In the past few months I have learned how painful a press can be.  We hear that when life hands you lemons to make lemonade.  Well friends, that is easier said than done and I am sure there are a lot of you out there who agree with me.  When life hands you a lemon, most of us do not think of making lemonade rather, we think of the seeds that it contains and how sour it is to taste.  We think about how difficult it is to peel a lemon and the sting the smell can cause in your nose.  In other words we think about all of the things that make it difficult to get to that lemonade.  That my friends is process of pain.

When we are in pain and I am not talking about physical pain per say, we hurt, we ache, we are uncomfortable, and we want to be left alone to deal with that pain.  We want relief, yes, …

A Time to Turn

In everyone's life there comes a time to turn.  Turn why, you ask?  Well if you have lived as long as I have, 50 years, you learn that your quality of life is much more important than your quatity of life. As you grow and develop relationships with others, at one time in your life those relationships are important to your continued growth.  But as you age, and my prayer is that you will, you learn that those relationships that at one time seemed to be beneficial to your very existence, are NO LONGER NEEDED.

When I decided to move from my hometown and live in a totally different city and state and time zone, I knew that there were some people I was saying goodbye to, for the last time.  I knew there were people who while essential to my projects and my overall well being, no longer had a place in my life.  I knew this and with a sadness, accepted it.  When I returned, I no longer had a desire to be near them or associate with them.  I had made a turn.

A turn for the better.  This …

Watch Your "Back"

Many times when we are involved in something be it for church, school, work or even a hobby we may have, we are surrounded by people who are in support of what we are doing.  We often hear, "I've got your back", and keep it moving feeling as if nothing and no one can harm us.  That even if someone tried, those who "have" our backs, will defend us and keep anyone who wants to cause harm or stop the progression of God in our lives, away from us.  We feel confident in that, and most times don't even bat an eye.

But friends, we have to be in constant prayer as to who has our backs.  What do I mean by that? Well not everyone who says they HAVE your back should be AT your back.  Let me break it down even further.  If the person watching your back is trying to manipulate your circle, you need to change those or the one who is "backing" you.  Not everyone who says they have our backs, have our backs. Some are watching our backs only to gain entry into who…
