That’s all we can do, right? Pray and cast our ballots.
God is in control of all outcomes, but we do have the free will to choose a candidate. I guess that’s where the praying comes in. Thank You, God, for giving us that gift. Let’s not condemn the use of it.
We also have the gift of expressing ourselves in so many ways. I am grateful to the community of writers, in which I consider myself a member. You have shown restraint in ways so many others haven’t. This is always a safe place. Thank you.
I’ve read apolitical posts asking for calm, respect, and kindness. Posts that focused on social injustice in compassionate and caring ways seeking to understand and engaging to find answers.
About 40 days ago, I started posting about voting on my personal Instagram account. It’s just a count down, encouraging people to vote. Each post is red, white, blue, or a combination of all three colors in our American flag. Captions were very short, allowing the picture to speak for itself.
Last week, I added purple. Can you guess why?
Today I’m posting in the Five Minute Friday link-up, where we free-write to a single word prompt for five minutes. Today the prompt is VOTE.
The redwhiteblue of our dear flag
must have a purple border,
for as good and compassion lag,
it’s Christ who brings back order,
the King to whom we all need bow,
kind ruler of our rebel hearts;
He’s the one we’re needing now
before our pride blows us apart
that will bring down hatred’s flood
and turn green and pleasant nation
into a sea of fetid blood.
Please let Godly wisdom come
to heal our land, our Earthly home!
Agreed! Hope you are doing well today.
Purple is a reminder that Christ is King and Lord over all. Thank you for this encouraging post.
Thanks, Jolene. Yes! Dah…I hadn’t thought of it that way. I was thinking that red & blue really can love each other and become something beautiful together.
I absolutely LOVE that sign!
Jesus reigns. Always and forever …
Hi Linda. I was so happy to see it in my neighborhood. I’ve only seen two others like it. I think we need more.
