I have grown very weary of politics in the last few years--and especially in the last few weeks. I care deeply about what goes on in this country, but have little patience for the 'game playing' and incredible waste of money that happens throughout this process.
When I received this e-mail forward today it struck me as the ONLY way I can feel good about my involvement in the political process between now and November 4th. I don't know what the outcome will be, but serve a God who does. He is Sovereign.
