See it.

Passing fancy


Live it.

I can't remember a time when so many people were so unhappy. Generally speaking, if your political leaning is Democrat, you're angry. The sad fact is the issue really doesn't matter. Everyday is a good time to show your anger toward anyone with an opinion opposite yours. Democrats were in control for eight years and there were almost no protests or violent demonstrations. That tells me that either peace reigned (not) or they are the reason for all the current civil unrest.

As a Conservative I am a registered Republican because it is the only viable option to keep Democrats out of office. Conservative Democrats, however, are not my friends because they will vote the liberal party line regardless their "conviction." Most conservative Republicans represent my beliefs. But with conviction they are joyful martyrs who resist their party liberal party leadership and are blamed for not being a team-player. If ever there was a place where the difference in happiness and joy were on display, Capitol Hill is it.

Pray it.

My expectation is in You, God, and not in anything else.
