so i have kept my opinions about this election to myself (blog wise). i figure its all be said and heard before and someone else always manages to say it better than me. but i would now like to share some of my most favorite things i have read. they have all moved me or made me say "hell yeah!"
and im not gonna lie, im relieved Obama is our next president. but lets be realistic here, we already knew whoever was going to be next in the white house is going to have a long hard road to take to put this place in the green again.

WE can be used to bring change
WE can be used to make a difference
WE can be used to bring hope
WE can be used to bring the kingdom of heaven on earth
vote for equal rights, fair trade, pro life, pro choice, for tolerance, for peace, for patience, for kindness, for long suffering, for love of your enemy, not on nov.4th, but EVERYDAY.
LIVING through your convictions or beliefs will go beyond any vote
thats the change we need
what the bible says:
"I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone- for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness." 1 Timothy 2:1-2
