Election Day!

Today is election day and I don't care who you're voting for as long as you GO VOTE!

I went early last Friday and waited for 45 minutes to do my duty. Hubby went on his way home from work that same day and had to wait in the cold for an hour. And you know what? I was happy to wait.

Typically, there's better voter turnout for presidential elections than other smaller elections. However, everything I'm hearing and seeing indicates that voter turnout might be even more than anticipated, which would make me personally very happy. It's like 'they' always say, "If you don't vote, you don't have the right to complain." I kinda think there's a nugget of truth to that.

I saw this quote on Instagram this morning, and I loved it so much I'm stealing it to put on here:

"My first allegiance is not to a flag, a country, or a man. My first allegiance is not to democracy or blood. It's to a King and a Kingdom." ~ Derek Webb

One reminder I think that's gotten lost in all the negativity and nastiness is that there are strong, Bible-believing, Jesus-following Christians on BOTH sides. I think people tend to forget that. I think if we keep loving everyone as Jesus tells us to, then we can't go wrong.

So to that end, I say I'll love you no matter who you vote for. But go vote!
