I haven't voted yet but I definitely plan to. I am so glad that this election season is almost over. Praise the Lord. I have a great aversion to conflict and it hacks away at my sense of well being to read or listen to political news. (Many thanks to the phlegmatic half of my personality.) It's like our nation is in a huge fight. It's funny because I don't mind having conflict with people in my family, but that's because we can talk it out and work through it. I know that we will still love each other afterward. The rest of my family apparently loves to discuss politics, so I just have to leave the room or put my fingers in my ears and hum, "We are the world, we are the children..." Do I sound pathetic? Sorry. I did vote in the primaries and I may be the only one in my family besides my mom who did. I take action, I just don't like to talk about it.
Curt told me about an article by John Piper and said I should read it. I hadn't gotten around to it yet, but then I saw that The Preacher's Wife had linked to it on her blog. I just read it and it's great. Here's the link: "Let Christians Vote as Though They Were Not Voting." God definitely used it to pour peace into my heart this morning. I hope it will bless.
