To all the "Haters" of we who are less fortunate, and of our President who, with a heart of empathy, offers a small token of help during these hard times....We pray that God will restore a spirit of love and tolerance to you.
To you who have not been adversely affected by this horrible recession, yet continually berate those of us who have....We are thankful for your good fortune, and ask that you pray for our recovery.
To you who seem to take offense when we, the less fortunate, express our gratitude and allegiance to God, our Country, and its leaders...We pray that God will remind you that "We The People" includes us.
If you didn't lose your dream home to foreclosure in 2007 because your income suddenly ceased to exist....You are Blessed.
If you didn't have to endure last winter with no electricity or running water....You are Blessed.
If you haven't had to live on faith through days without even the basic essentials, such as food or toilet paper....You are Blessed.
My husband and I have indeed endured these things, but with God's grace and the generosity of Genuinly Good People ....We are Blessed.
I say all of this because my heart is heavy to see a nation divided, families divided, friends divided. We are all God's children. Rich or poor, black or white, gay or straight, republican or democrat, we are all precious in His sight.
My prayer is that God will restore His spirit to our nation. May he wake us all up to His will for America. Let us all enjoy the "Pursuit of Happiness" and the American freedoms of which we so proudly speak.
Let us enjoy the right to bear arms...Let us not kill our unborn...Let us learn to respect those who love differently...Let us love unconditionally, as Jesus does.
Let it not be said of America..."She was defeated by a foreign enemy, who saw her weakness of division, and siezed the opportunity to destroy her".
