Say what you mean...

As we get nearer and nearer to the elections, I'd like to put something "out there." 

When you post opinions about politics on face-book or decide to share those "funny" photos that somehow slam the other party, remember this: If you post something, we will assume it is your opinion and you want us to listen. In return, we should then expect that you are willing to listen to our opinion in return.

In the words of a wise woman: Say what you mean, and mean what you say - but you don't have to be mean when you say it.

I'd like to add, hats off to my many friends who differ from me politically yet they limit their posts to positives about their favorite party rather than resort to name-calling of mine. I have not problem with those who post what they believe...I listen and work to better understand our differences and celebrate our common ground. We all love this country and we're in this together!

Ephesians 4:15

The Message (MSG)
 14-16No prolonged infancies among us, please. We'll not tolerate babes in the woods, small children who are an easy mark for impostors. God wants us to grow up, to know the whole truth and tell it in love—like Christ in everything. We take our lead from Christ, who is the source of everything we do. He keeps us in step with each other. His very breath and blood flow through us, nourishing us so that we will grow up healthy in God, robust in love.
