After last night's main event, I've felt like I am in an Election Hangover today.
No, my guy did not win and take the Presidency.
No, my state amendment to keep marriage between one man and one woman did not pass.
No, my U.S. Senator was not elected.
Disappointed, very disappointed. For me, for my family, for my children. For all of us.
But somewhere in the midst of today while my heart still heals, I saw several postings from today's Mass readings:
'Do everything without grumbling or questioning,
that you may be blameless and innocent,
children of God without blemish
in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation,
among whom you shine like lights in the world,
as you hold on to the word of life,
so that my boast for the day of Christ may be
that I did not run in vain or labor in vain.'
My husband also shared this with me from today's office of readings:
' The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away;
blessed be the name of the Lord!
We accept good things from God;
and should we not accept evil?'
Let our hearts not grow weary in fighting the fight and let us always stand on guard protecting our children and our families.
Our Lady of Hope, Pray For Us!
Due to the fact that I'm just plain tired of the politics, tomorrow I'll bring a fun, new post from a guest blogger.
Perhaps that will at least put something in your reader to smile over.
Until then, may our hearts be light, our prayers more powerful than before and may we rise up even stronger.
