Will I trust him…not with my life or yours.


I have to give one last political rant.

I am seeing good people, people who I believe are good Christians, talking about how the Country will now go back to Christian values and become Godly again.

I AM COMPLETELY BAFFLED.

You believe that Donald Trump is the person who will do this?

HOW?

Have you completely ignored his racism, his use and abuse of workers, his bankrupties, his mocking of a handicapped man, his plans to stop helping people/immigration? Have you completely ignored his own claims of sexual abuse towards women?

Is this who you see as bringing America back to Christian values?

Tell me you are against abortion. That I can understand. I may not completely agree with you, but I can understand your stance.

Tell me you wanted change. That I believe.

But to elect this man because you believe he is what God wants to make America more Christian goes against all the love, compassion, and goodness that I believe Jesus brought us.

Donald Trump is evil.

I fear for my daughters. I fear for my LBGT relatives and friends. I fear for my handicapped friends. I fear for my relatives and friends who are black, brown, or any other color that Trump doesn’t like. I fear for my relatives and friends who are of a different religion or background.

Know that I support you. Know that I will ALWAYS fight for you.

And to my friends who are proclaiming a win for Christianity, I am here for you too.  Because even though I believe differently, you are still my friends.

I will go on to fight the good fight.

There will be some good that comes out of this and that is the solidarity of many people who do believe in love and good.

That will be done in spite of President Elect Trump, because neither his words nor actions are either of those.

Donald Trump is not my kind of Christian.

Will I pray for him, yes.

Will I trust him…not with my life or yours.

Witnessing a Story of Faith, Love and Support


What child is this, who, laid to rest, On Mary’s lap is sleeping? Whom angels greet with anthems sweet, While shepherds watch are keeping? This, this is Christ the King, Whom shepherds guard and angels sing:

Haste, haste to bring Him laud, The Babe, the son of Mary. So bring him incense, gold, and myrrh, Come, peasant, king, to own him. The King of kings salvation brings, Let loving hearts enthrone him. Raise, raise a song on high, The virgin sings her lullaby : Joy, joy for Christ is born, The babe, the Son of Mary.

In this season, this ‘Christ’mas time, may we all stop our fun preparations: the decorating, present buying, wrapping, and cookie making…to reflect on Christ’s birth. The gift God gave us on this day…His Son.

The babe that would grow into a 12 year old child who would sit amongst the elders speaking wisdom in the temple.  The young man who, when baptized, was descended upon by the Holy Spirit in the form of a dove and a voice came from heaven, which said, “Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased”.  The man who would die on the cross to save us from our sins.

And God, the Father, watched from above.  He saw all the joy…He saw all the suffering.  He was there through it all…beside His Son.

On our worst days, we may wonder ‘Where is God?’.

He’s watching.  He’s waiting.  He’s with us, just as He was with His Son.

We just need to have Faith.

I’ve witnessed this show of faith.

First, in my husband’s Grandpa, who passed 12 years ago:  Frank was at home, having fought a good fight against cancer.  He was in hospice care…and he had faith.  In his last weeks he spoke about seeing Jesus there in the room with him.  And we knew…He was there.  He walked Grandpa home to Heaven…of that there is no doubt.

And in the past few months,  an incredible story of courage, faith, and love has filled our small town – pulling it’s people together in a show of support for an incredible young man suffering from leukemia. Read more
