Hillary Clinton

While I wouldn't have voted for either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, Hillary's desire and effort to become president were more than evident throughout many years. This is why watching her watch her opponent once again become president was brutal. It wasn't political sentiment; only that as a fellow human being I felt that moment in my gut. I was there with her for a moment, and it was tough. Nevertheless, assisting both the Oath and Luncheon were gracious moves that no doubt took every once of strength she could muster.

I don't share all her values and principles (I do very much share her desire to uplift communities and neglected areas of government), but I recognize that she is a strong, intelligent person who has a clear vision of what government should be. And while I don't always agree with her vision and focus, I realize it is not easy to achieve that level of clarity. Neither could I deny the impact she had on me during her time as First Lady. I was a teen who loved history and politics and she was quite impressive to me. She stood out, and we all noticed her.

"To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven" Ecclesiastes 3:1.

Thank you for helping me want to be strong and brave like you, Mrs. Clinton. And, yesterday, gracious as well.

Getting older

As I grow older and everyone around me grows up, my mind flashes back to old dreams and old feelings and it amazes me to find some are still there. Maybe there's a part of us that never truly grows up, and I like that. It makes me happy.

Let mercy lead

For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
-1 Corinthians 1:18

If we can reach beyond the wisdom of this age
into the foolishness of God
That foolishness will save
Those who believe

Although their foolish hearts may break
They will find peace

If/when anyone reading this has a prayer request feel free to send me a message (same if you're on Tumblr), I'd love to pray for you, your friends and/or family. I won't reply back unless you want me to answer in some way. Of course I won't post about it here or anywhere else. You don't even have to include what's going on, just a simple "pray for me" or "pray for my friend."

I do this because sometimes we bottle up so much stuff our thoughts and feelings become oppressive. Other times you don't even want to talk about it but feel the need to do something about it. I've been there quite a few times, so I understand all of it.

Take care, God bless you.
