i'm not the government.....

so today, of course, i'm in another discussion involving the elections and issues....dah, it's election day. here's hoping you all voted and prayerfully to boot!

the woman says she was raised Baptist and believes in the Bible but that it shouldn't be a consideration in voting....huh? i know the founding fathers sought to have a "SEPERATION OF CHURCH AND STATE" because in their human wisdom they knew that politics and "religion" don't mix easily. i think we can ALL agree on that one, lol! but I'M NOT THE GOVERNMENT....i'm a living, breathing, spirit-filled Christian who does not believe God should be absent from ANY part of my life!!! my life belongs to HIM, all of it, and i give it freely and with gratitude.

i know it's a hard concept for some to grasp, but that distinction was meant for the government, which is supposed to be a representation of the people. i hope it will soon become clear that these are not seperate places for those who truly follow the Lord, any more than we are more than one person in who we are. we are a mixture (there's that cool concept again: see note on stew and chocolate chip cookies, lol) of all experiences and beliefs and you can't just TURN THAT OFF at a moment's notice...and why would you want to???

TAKE GOD WITH YOU AS YOU VOTE TODAY, HE DESERVES TO BE THERE!
