What shall we say to these things?

Good morning everyone! Hope that your day is going well. I just felt compelled to say something about the events that occurred at the Capitol Building on January 6, 2021. After all, it is one of those things on everyone’s mind. So, what shall we say to these things?

Well, it was disheartening to watch and it is even more disheartening for outsiders to know America’s dirty little secret. Outsiders now have concrete proof that racism is alive and well in the United States of America. If the race problem is not dealt with, it will eventually deal with us. Why is it so hard for people to understand that we are all God’s children, whether we are white, black, yellow, blue, green or whatever color you choose to call yourself? God loves us all and although we are not God, why must color define whether you like someone or not? White people don’t own America, black people don’t own America, brown people don’t own America, God does.

We may have differing opinions on certain issues, but when we get to the point of wanting to inflict harm upon a perceived adversary, then we have a real problem. I don’t understand why people opt to believe that the election was stolen. Was it stolen four years ago? Was it stolen eight years ago? What about 12 or 14 years ago? If this election was stolen, where is the evidence? We are a country predicated upon laws and when a law is violated, then we must be held accountable. We don’t get to say something over and over again and then take it as truth without the production of a scintilla of proof. Come on Americans, people will think that you are insane and so blinded by rage and color that you can’t differentiate the forest from the trees and definitely truth from lies.

When a man’s ways please God, the Bible tell us that God will make his enemies to be at peace with him. Our ways as a country is so displeasing to God that what is happening is truly not a surprise. I pray that we can get to the point where we care more about people and not about the color of their skin. We used to say and believe, “In God We Trust,” but our actions show that we no longer trust in God but trust more in our fists, our political affiliations, and in ourselves. We must have those difficult conversations and we must demand change—if we are going to survive as a country. Let us remember our nation and continue to pray for its healing. Prayer truly changes things.

Let’s start the conversation. What do you say to these things?

I am a wife, mother, grandmother and caretaker, and I also work outside of the home. Life has its struggles but I am not complaining. It could always be worse. Many lessons learned on my journey and many more to come--I am sure. God has a sense of humor and I have certainly learned how to laugh at myself. You should too-it is quite therapeutic. After all, some things we cannot change so why not enjoy a good laugh at our own expense. See you soon.
