Every one of us at the table are sold out Christians. We love the Lord with all of our hearts. I just wanted to start by qualifying that.
As we were discussing who we would be casting our vote for in Tuesday's primary, it was amazing to hear how torn we were.
One of us was quite decided for Ron Paul.
One of us was going to vote for Mitt Romney, but qualified it by noting that she thought a vote for Romney was in essence a vote against McCain, and that a vote for anyone else would be a throw away vote anyway.
One of us didn't say who she was voting for....but probably because the rest of us were talking too much for her to get a word in edgewise.
Two of us are undecided...and the primary is only 4 days away!
I think with the exception of our Ron Paul girl, most of us were discouraged that there isn't more of a clear-cut answer right now.
I really am so confused.
The tough part is that we don't have television in our home. We have a tv for playing DVDs, but all cable and network tv is out. That's fine by me most of the time, but it puts us at a great disadvantage in an election year.
Shane spends almost 2 hours a day in the car, so he gets lots and lots of talk radio. He knows who he's voting for, but I have my suspicions that it may be a vote by default.
In truth, I know that I will vote for whomever my husband is voting for.
Not because I can't think for myself, or because I don't appreciate those who worked hard to make sure I have a right to vote, but because I have great respect for my husband's understanding of politics and government.
And, because we really do think the same on pretty much any issue that comes up. I think that's the beauty of being one flesh.
So, we will be in lots of prayer this weekend...seeking God on whom He would have us cast our votes for.
I would encourage you to do the same.
He cares about our votes...let's make them count to His glory.
