The closest I'll probably come to a *political* post....

Putting aside my thoughts on the candidates (and I have quite a few) and where I fall along party lines (let's just say I get out of line quite often) here are my thoughts on one of the many political topics these days.

"O Lord, You have heard the desire of the humble;
You will strengthen their heart, You will incline Your ear
To vindicate the orphan and the oppressed,
So that man who is of the earth will no longer cause terror."
Psalm 10:17-18

No matter the social justice issues of our generation, despite the rockstars and their newest trendy cause, my hope lies elsewhere. My hope lies in the God who created heaven and earth. It is God who will vindicate the orphans and the oppressed. It is not the government or actors that will bring justice, it is my God.

Wish I could pick your brain on this one. The issue of orphans is kinda a big deal to me...

Very well said and thought Lindsay. Maybe I'll write in God on my vote this year.
