Okay. I’ve had my cathartic day of grieving.
I don’t like the results of this election, but I respect the office, our constitution, the current man holding the office, and the gracious in defeat opponent enough that I will obey their request to try to keep an open mind and give him a chance.
I’m also obeying God here. (See Romans 13 also)
Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good, 2 to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and always to be gentle toward everyone.
3 At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. 4 But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, 5 he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, 6 whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7 so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life. 8 This is a trustworthy saying. And I want you to stress these things, so that those who have trusted in God may be careful to devote themselves to doing what is good. These things are excellent and profitable for everyone.
Titus 3: 1-8
So, I’m going to start doing something good by starting to have fun again. Learning to look up and smile and spread joy. The best way I know to spread joy is to go back to posting about my fabulous daughter Ginny.
Ginny is now 8 years old (which means my blog is approximately 9 years old since I started it before she was even born. wow. ) Anyway, she is fun and sassy and learning to love God and her fellow humans at a wonderful Christian school that is dear to my heart.
Here are a few photos from recent years. This is by no means comprehensive. It’s just ones I had handy on my computer as I’m writing this today.
So that’s my version of kitten videos and lighthearted fun for today.
