So, today was super Tuesday and time for us to cast out first votes.  I know the person I voted for will not win, but I picked him as the person I feel is most qualified for the position of president of this great country.  He doesn't jab at the other candidates, but simply states his qualifications and his experience.  After all, since when is the amount one sweats a concern of this country?  And don't we try to teach our children not to bully their peers, or call them liars?  Our founding fathers must be turning over in their graves.  

A Bible passage, from the book of Ezra, chapter 9, verses 5b-6 describes how I feel about all of this:
"...I fell upon my knees, and spread out my hands unto the LORD my God, and said, O my God, I am ashamed and blush to lift up my face to thee, my God, for our iniquities are increased over our head, and our trespass is grown up into heaven."

I wonder if people in other countries think all Americans act this way.  I surely hope not!

  1. Charlotte - I think I know of whom you speak. And, doubtless he won't win, but it would be our saving grace if he could.

  2. I don't think our candidate is going to win either, but we must vote our convictions. I'm so tired of all the mudslinging that goes on in the political realm. Do they care about this country or do they just care about their own political power. Loved the scripture.

  3. Over the last few months I have been researching my family genealogy back to the American Revolution. I have also been reading more about our early American history and the formation of our government by the founding fathers. You are so right, they are turning in their graves!

  4. I have been thinking and wondering what people in other nations must be thinking of our country of late too.

  5. I think I know who you're talking about as well. I also know that other countries are watching this very close. I have a Poet friend from Ireland that told me he felt so sorry for his American friends. I fear for this country and where it's heading more everyday. It's fulfillig the Bible.

  6. I sent in my absentee ballot last week for our primary election on next Tuesday. I hope my choice is still in the running by then. LOL I just want a decent nominee. If he is going to claim to be a Christian, he needs to not only Talk the Talk, but Walk the Walk, not be using crude, vulgar language. This whole thing is tearing my Grand Old Party apart and it makes me very sad.

  7. How did it get to this point - cudeness, mudslinging, stating falsehoods. Wow, what a mess! For all the honest, good and decent candidates, a statement is being made as honest, good and decent Americans cast their votes. Rock on!

  8. I'm with you, Charlotte. I've been embarrassed about the leaders of our country for a long, long, time. And oh, what we must look like to the people of other countries. Our politicians have made us a laughing stock.

    I guess we must consider how we got here, though. So many people are mad, in every sense of the word, because they feel like they haven't been listened to, and I admit, myself, that some of the things Trump says he would do sound better to me than what HAS been done, but he won't be able to do any of it if he gets into office. And I am concerned about how hateful he is. I'm a Democrat, myself, but if the Repubs had a better candidate I'd vote that way. I know there are many possible Republican candidates but none of them seem to be interested or willing to run for office. I'm old enough to remember when it was hard to choose who to vote for because they were all worthy of office. Where have all the flowers gone, long time passing....

  9. I love your header photo. I'm with you, Charlotte. I'm getting tired of so much arguing and personal attacks. It will be good when this election is over.

  10. I agree with you. My daughters made me proud. They voted for the candidate who they felt had the most integrity, stating that this was probably the only chance they would be able to vote for him. He is no longer in the race, but I'm glad they voted their convictions. Praying that God works it out in his plan.
