I do NOT get political on my blog. No controversy, no taking sides, no blame. It's just too negative.
With that said, there is a dense cloud of sadness smothering America from recent events. Its trickle-down effect is stinging every one of us. Farther and farther down we are spiraling. And many of us feel helpless and frustrated and don't know how to fix it.
The best way little old me can help, from my small, insignificant corner of the world, is to send prayers and positive vibes. So that is what I am doing today...
Dear Father in Heaven,
Please comfort those who have lost.
Please bring reason to those who seek revenge.
Don't let them twist Your Words, saying "An eye for an eye," when that Old Law was done away;
Let them know Your New Law to be better than those who do evil -
"Turn the other cheek" "Love your enemies" "Pray for them" (Luke 6:27-38)
Please give US the strength to love and light up the world with good works,
To extinguish the hate and darkness in downtrodden hearts.
Only Your Love can save us.
Please help us carry on, even when we don't understand why these things happen.
I have faith that things will soon be better.
Help me forgive others so You might forgive me when I stumble.
Thank you for your blessings.
Especially the perfect example of Jesus.
In His Name, Amen.
Thanks for letting me share this with you.
I hope and pray things don't get worse before they get better - but we writers know that happens sometimes... Now go hug someone and spread some joy!
