I Am Saddened

Yes, I am saddened... 
and hurt!

Why? Because people who I thought loved me have shown that they don't really...

I have been accused of things that I did not do. I have been told that because I am of a certain religion, that I think certain ways....some is true, but mostly people have a very strange idea of what I believe or think...

I've been told I hate someone because they don't believe as I do. That is far from the truth. Sure, I might not agree with what they do or believe, but I don't "hate" them...that is a very strong word.

I have been called every name in the book because of what I believe.
And I believe good things, and I try my best to be a good person.

I love my neighbor, I try my best not to judge others, by giving people the benefit of the doubt. Before I judge them, I think...."What would I do if I were in their shoes?" or "What is the rest of their story?" When I'm in a group who starts to judge someone, I will say something like, "Well maybe there is a good reason for what they do..."

I try to serve others, I listen to others, I pray for others...sometimes that's all one can do for others...is pray...

You maybe asking yourself, "Terry, what has brought this on?"

The answer to that question is....

This stupid election!

Yes!  Because I am for a candidate that others think are evil; that makes me evil, stupid, deplorable, racist, ignorant, and other words I will not use on this blog because I do not use them...ever! 

Yes, I have been called every name in the book...and these are from people who I thought knew me, loved me....

So, maybe they didn't say it to my face, but ranting and raving on social media about certain people and how @#$%&* they are, well, it's pretty much including me. 

I know I am not alone in this...I know others who feel this same way.

I know who I am, I know who we all are...children of a loving Heavenly Father....and I'm sure he is also saddened by the way we are all acting.

Hateful to each other!
And wanting to do GREAT harm to each other...even those we love. This election has caused forever relationships to be broken up, even putting family against family. 

I see a great divide in this country...and in fact in this world. This is not good...

Ok...so I know a lot of you do not believe the same as I do...I have friends and family who do not believe in a supreme being...but!!! we can all still be nice to each other...right?

I  want to challenge everyone who reads this post...let us put our differences aside. Let us love each other for who we are, not because we voted for this person or that person. Even if we do not agree with each other, we need to put that aside. I don't think that most of us will change our minds as to who we will vote for. Some of us have already voted and sent the ballot in. 

Let us love each other no matter the outcome of this election. Who ever is elected has HUGE job on their hands, and we need to understand that. Not everything this person said they will do can happen...their hands will be tied to a certain extent, and we need to understand that. We need to show each other, and the government that we are UNITED, that we have unconditional love for one another, and that we want to better this country. 

No matter who is elected, this country, heck, this world is going to be going into hard times. We need to be there for each other. There is strength in numbers. Let us band together and help each other during these hard time.

One more thing...

Starting right now...I am not going to post another political post. Can I hear the same for all of you?! No more political posts!!!! All it does is get our heart rates up and make us angry...

Let us be happy...it is much better for our health...

You all have a wonderful day...and I really do mean that! :)


  1. Terry, sounds like a great idea..I will try to do the same....God Bless you..God is still on the throne..we need not worry if we know him..and we do!~~ <3

  2. You have a good heart Terry! This is a good message.
    But I can't commit to withhold my political thoughts and comments. I only write on my own wall, and I try my best to only reflect my own thoughts and opinions without pointing fingers at any individuals or especially friends. It's unfortunate that you have been attacked for being passionate about the Country you love, and your concern for it.
    Have a great week!
