OK, it’s over – all the hullabaloo and hip-hip hooray – all the millions of dollars wasted on political advertising – all the hidden agendas, the special interest groups, the futile attempts by those who would change the course of America.  Halleluiah!

Election Day has come and gone.  Some changes have been made, but life goes on as usual.  At least for another year – until we’re caught in the throes of name calling, scandal, lies. deceit, and the spending of ridiculous amounts of money on publicity only on a much larger scale.

What has happened to our country?  We think nothing of the dollars spent to promote men into government – money that could allay some of our national debt.  We tolerate mudslinging and character assassination.  We are OK with letting only those with the most dollars win elections.  We become lackadaisical when it comes to going to vote in mid-term elections.  We succumb to politics as usual and give up.

Praise God He didn’t give up on us.

When we let men of questionable character and moral value enter the political arena, we are opening the door to all kinds of problems.  Somehow we have forgotten that God is the One who instituted government for our benefit.  We have placed Him somewhere in the background as a nation and, as in ancient times, let the idols of greed – immorality – and all kinds of sinful behavior wheedle their way into our society.

The devil doesn’t take out ads to announce his lascivious plans.  He lays in the bushes like a lion waiting to devour us.  He is slowly creeping into the core of our original philosophy as a nation.  It’s apparent to anyone who has lived for more than 3 decades. Life in America is changing and it’s up to us as Christians to see to it that it doesn’t.

So, as we prepare for the next round of political rhetoric, let’s look at what God has to say about government.

Psalm 33:12 “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
    the people he chose for his inheritance.



As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on
