AND THEY’RE OFF!

  

I don’t think there’s a person in our country that doesn’t know the 2016 presidential race is now officially underway.  The first potential female president threw her hat into the ring via a tweet and social media has exploded with the usual pros and cons and we still have a year and a half to go before a decision is made.

Mark Twain once said, “Politicians and diapers must be changed often and for the same reason.”  How true is that?  Thankfully, we are still a democratic nation and maintain the right to voice our feelings through our right to vote.  Many of our other rights are quickly becoming eroded, eliminated or outdated.

I’m not looking forward to the next 18 months of rhetoric and empty promises, but life goes on and so does politics.  Wouldn’t it be an interesting concept to give each candidate a thousand dollars to spend on campaigning and donate all the rest of the money they raise to decrease the national debt?  I wonder how many serious candidates would remain.  It might be a wise way to determine the right one for the job.

We are told in God’s Word to be gentle in our admonition to those in authority and that by so doing we should also pray for them.  As Christians we are told to pray for our government, but someone recently said we are no longer a Christian nation.  Heaven help us!!  I think I’ll take a nap for the next year and a half.

About atimetoshare.me

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 Amazon.com.
