Freedom to Choose

HOW BIG IS YOUR FREEDOM?  PHOTO BY LIZ GRAY — JUNE 2009 — NYC

     At last! It’s here!  Election Day!  The incumbent verses the challenger.  The red verses the blue.  The D verses the R.   The right one verses the wrong one.  The list goes on!

Who will you choose and why?

What if you’re stuck and not certain of your choice?  Then get busy TODAY and research your candidates and compare them to your values.  In the world of endless media to acquire an informed mind, ignorance is no excuse!

To all who may see this, I implore you to vote today!

Why?  Because millions around the world would do anything to have the freedom to choose who is in power of the land they call home, or at the very least, were destined by birth to inhabit.  Vote because untold blood was shed, so you could stay free and maintain this right.  Vote because you love your country and care enough to be informed about the choices of those in power and how it will impact your life and others.

Vote because you reject negativity and cynicism to take root in your soul, despite the fact you may not be totally overjoyed with the choices and there has never been a perfect candidate.    Vote because you are telling the world your voice and your view matters.   Vote because you stand for this and reject that.

Validate that which you value by voting!

Life, liberty (freedom!), and the pursuit (the hopeful intention to achieve, not the guarantee) of happiness are three truths that are too valuable to squander because you were too lazy to vote.

Above all, when you cast your vote, may you have peace with your soul!

Join the millions of Americans tonight who will be glued to their TV, waiting with anticipation, dread, and elation, awaiting the direction and vision America steps into the future with.

Vote for responsibility.  Vote for freedom.  Vote for truth.   Vote for honor.  Vote for life.

VOTE!

And…..A Prayer for Wednesday:

Dear Lord, Many of will be rejoicing, but many of us will feel crushed in spirit.  Help those of us who feel victorious not fall prey to boasting.  Help those of us who feel as if we’ve lost to not feel defeated in spirit.   We are Americans!  As a nation we have many problems socially, economically, and spiritually.  But we are a great people.  We have been blessed with a diversity of divine wisdom if we just ask You for it.    We are not victims; we are victors!     We are free to choose how we are led and free to choose how we will respond once our President is chosen.   Today is the day I choose to shake the hand of my neighbor, to hug my friend, and love my fellow American because I am indeed free.

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.  Galatians 5:1

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.   1 Chronicles 7:14
