This crazy thing called LIFE!

It's been almost a week since I wrote here simply because life had a way of catching up with us. We've been staying busy laying wood floors, getting on top of the rest of our unpacking from the move, planning more trips, and who knows what else.

Also, I took a little reprieve from blogging because I was fed up with how some people use blogs to slander and tarnish a person's reputation. We experienced this over the past week. As some of you may know, my husband serves as a committeeman in our town, and last year as the mayor. We've come under attack before from some of his political malcontents, but yesterday the paper thought it was more newsworthy to feature a guy with an ax to grind with my hubs bashing both him and I on the front page than covering Super Tuesday II, the Paid Family Leave Act that the state Senate approved the day before, or any other story that is actually newsworthy instead.

We prayed long and hard before my husband got involved in politics, and before each of his campaigns and elections, and we know that God is calling him to be a light in the dark (and unfortunately far too often crooked) world of politics. But, it doesn't make it any easier when his name gets dragged through the mud. Thankfully we can praise the Lord that the article seemed to backfire on the malcontent yesterday; regardless, we're going to keep on keeping on as long as God calls us to this road "for such a time as this."

Please be in prayer for our nation right now at the local, county, state, and national level. It's so important that we have godly men and women who are willing to take a stand and be true public servants instead of being in politics for personal gain.

And thanks to those of you out there who use your blogs to encourage and inspire people. If only the rest of the blogging world could be like you.

  1. I pray that God protects your "hearts" from people and thier comments. Politics is an emotionally charged arena, I commend you and your husband for your service. Stay the course that you feel God has put before you and you will be blessed!

    PS. I've resolved to not talk "politics" anymore, it makes my blood pressure rise! I guess you don't have that luxury. :(
