Optimism amid frustration best choice

Holy moly, Batman, what a mess we are in, so it seems!
I’m sure that’s what most people are thinking about this election, but I’m remaining optimistic knowing God is in charge and that evil will be exposed. What is frustrating to me, however, is the lack of knowledge people have concerning the United States Constitution and the election process. It’s not just they don’t understand it, they don’t know anything about either.
In not teaching these things in our schools as it used to be, we have done people a huge disservice.
The election is not over as it has not been officially verified and there are many lawsuits around the country. The more stuff that comes out about the programs and watching the shenanigans by some, for me, it is really hard to trust the election system as it is handled today. Seems it was set up to be fraudulent from the start.
Makes me question every election I’ve ever voted in and wondering whether my vote actually went to the person I cast it for in the first place. And I am not casting doubt on local election offices as in Crawford County, I would put Brenda up against any one else as she runs a tight ship. In fact, I think she could give other offices some lessons on how to do things properly.
But some of my friends in other counties have told me many, many stories about discrepancies and mysterious duffel bags showing up past deadline with who knows what and only certain people opening them.
Until a winner is certified, there is no reason for the Biden group to have access to national security issues and if you think they should, I think something is wrong with you. National security is nothing to play around with and in the wrong hands, could jeopardize our whole country.
Until the election is certified there is no president-elect either no matter what mainstream media tries to tell you.
As if all that isn’t enough, we have Fauci telling us all to just do as we are told. I don’t know who died and left him in charge but he is not in control of my freedom, that’s for sure.
I take offense to the advertisements that are saying you care if you are wearing a mask. That has nothing to do with the price of tea in China. If you want to wear a mask do so, but don’t force your fear onto others as that certainly is not caring at all. Looks like to me all those places where masks have been mandated, it has not helped one iota. That is if you believe the media hype about numbers rising and I do not. I find it strange that it is being hyped up again because of election issues. However, if Biden does become the winner, everyone is in for a world of hurt including more forced lockdowns worse than the first one.
It is sad to me how we are teaching our children to be afraid and to just comply with whatever the government tells you to do. Last I checked, I still live in the United States of America which by the way is a Constitutional Republic not a democracy as many people want to say. There is a difference.
It also drives me crazy hearing it’s time to heal when for the last five years, Trump has said that same thing and it fell on deaf ears. They have done nothing but whine and fight so they do not have the right to say anything about it being time to heal. It’s way past time for all of that, it’s time to fight.
I’m a confessed conservative but do not always vote down party lines, but for the person. And believe me there are issues with all parties, however, the mess we’ve seen this year came mainly from one party who would not condemn riots and condoned people for things they themselves have done.
How someone who calls themself a Christian can vote for someone who thinks it’s okay to murder babies is beyond me. They will be judged by God when they stand before Him though.
In the meantime, life goes on. Lots of things upcoming in Crawford County and Peach County as well.
Tonight, there is a Sparkle and Sass fall popup vendor gathering at the Civic Center in Roberta including yours truly. There will be plants, potions, books, artwork and much more. Drop by to see us: 4-7 p.m.
Roberta will do Christmas including the parade on December 5th. For more information contact Patti at the Chamber of Commerce.
Hard to believe that next week is Thanksgiving. Seems like this year has been two years long and then in October it began flying by faster. Lots of people are putting up their Christmas trees and decorations early but I just can’t. I barely got my fall decorations out.
Personally, I will be glad when this year is over and I am praying next year will make up for it. We shall see.
One thing I’ve missed this year is holding my annual women’s conference. I was up for it but others weren’t and there was too much fear about the virus. I refuse to not live my life and do take precautions, other than masks. So thinking about having it earlier next year. It’s usually in the fall, but perhaps springtime in 2021. We all certainly do need to be renewed and what better time than spring?
I’m so thankful that my Wednesday Bible study ladies have hung with me during all that’s going on in the world. We have grown in the Word and Lord this year and learned many things studying we didn’t realize before because many things are no longer taught. It’s been a great source of fellowship and the Lord has been with us at each one, providing discernment and wisdom. I’m looking forward to even more revelations this next year. If you’d like to join us, it’s on Wednesdays at 2 p.m. Because the church did not allow it, haven’t been able to hold the one on Thursdays and I have missed those ladies but God had other plans and has shown me so much through all of this.
I’m thankful for the connection with so many like-minded people who have stood firm in their faith and not lived their lives in fear. Living in fear is something God tells us not to do and it is not really living at all.
With the change in seasons though and going from spending lots of time outside to not to much does bring on seasonal affective disorder. I am not immune to it either and have experienced it somewhat already. Guess not going like we used to just adds to it. We haven’t been able to get a camping spot at our favorite beach this year and I’ve really missed that. There’s just something about being at the beach that revives you. Hope to make up for that next year too. ©2020
