Peace for your Path...

"peace. it does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. it means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart." (unknown)

my personal, peaceful, and non-political plea

And so it begins...again.

Each time we get close to an election year, they start arriving. The forwarded emails. And each time, feelings are sure to get hurt all around. This year I am doing a bit of  lobbying of my own right from the very start.

So, here goes:

(and oh, dear God, how I pray that my heart will be heard when I ask my friends once more this year)

kindly refrain from sending me any type of political-themed emails from any political viewpoint  
(especially those with any overtly religious slant)

And here is why...

Because I will love you regardless of how you vote. I will. I do not care. I do not want to know who you want to win. I only want to know that you take your voting every bit as seriously as I do. Which, I do take

v-e-r-y  s-e-r-i-o-u-s-l-y. 

I hope that you will love me, too. And if not, then I tend to think that is your crisis of faith problem, not mine.

Yes. I know the issues. Trust me. I spend many (many) hours online every day reading and researching.
The issues? I got 'em. Thanks, though.

Yes. I know that many people of my particular faith background tend to vote a certain way. I often tend not to vote that way. And sometimes, I tend to vote that way. You see, I can actually go both ways. I study all the issues. I research all the candidates and then I pray with all my heart, soul, mind and body and then I vote.

Yes. This process works for me. This is how I do it. Thanks again for your concern, but I really, honestly, respectfully, truly, prayerfully and humbly say to you now from my deepest and most loving heart space that
 your advice.

Really, I don't.

But I do love you! :)
