After the Election

I’m sure there are many bloggers blogging their bloggiest (and posting their postiest, tweeting their tweetiest, pinning their pinningest) about the election a few days ago. How strange that I cannot find words to express my thoughts or feelings about it.  Maybe I have nothing to add to what’s already being said.  Maybe I just have no desire to add to the already heated arguments.

I know there are believers in Jesus who choose not to vote, and those who struggle with anger because of that choice.  I know there are many who are politically active, as well as others who cannot dream of the possibility of a true believer serving in the political realm at all.

My bottom line is I will do my best to love God and follow where he leads, and show love to my neighbor as I would want it for myself.  Yes, it’s simplistic, but I can’t think of doing any better than that.
