I know I should (update, that is). But I have been putting my energy elsewhere lately.

Okay, not totally true. More like the frustration of the political landscape right now just makes me want to bury my head in the sand (and almost cast a vote for Hillary...almost).

I NEVER thought I would feel that desperate;)

No, I'm not a democrat ( my shocking revelation for the day), but I would do almost anything to aid the other alternative in NOT getting into office. Anything legal, of course;)

So our great state of Oregon has chosen Obama as their choice for the democratic candidate; I had nothing to do with that, so don't blame me in the future.

I am curious to see just how long Hillary holds out; she's a determined woman, you have to give her credit for that. And the white middle-class definitely seems to have a preference for her. It will be interesting to see how that affects things later on.

If My People

I have been contemplating the present run for the Presidency from many angles lately.

Just ten years ago, I wouldn't have believed that an issue, such as abortion, would be basically a non-issue in a future presidential race.

While I am not writing about the subject of Abortion specifically here, it is a good example of something that we have grown used to. It is no longer an issue that clearly separates the candidates.

But then, four years ago, I would have never dreamed we would even consider electing a candidate that often chooses not to show our countries flag respect.

The terrorist attacks that sent us reeling just a few short years ago, would now seem to be a distant memory to so many Americans. We want the "bad" war to go away, we want a new President who will "fix" everything; and we're willing to take him/her at their word that they'll do it, regardless of whether they have realistic plans of how to do that. Or the qualifications.

I believe we live in a country greatly blessed by God. But sometimes I have to wonder if we're pushing things to the what point is enough enough?

I think now may be a very good time to consider the following verse:

" If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." II Chron. 7:14

Hopefully Christians will not put off praying for our country (and this Presidential race) as a last resort when everything else fails. It's the best way to make our voice be heard.
