Voted off the island?

Ahhhh at last! November 4, 2014 an important day for Americans-Election Day.

Democracy is our ability to participate equally in our government. The right to vote gives us “the people” a choice in who we wish to represent our country, state, county or city government.

There are many things in life that give us the power to have a say or a “vote” in life. Here are a few situations in a democracy in which we cast our power to vote.


We sometimes vote to decide:

  • Who has control over the remote tonight?
  • Who has to do the dishes? I did them last night so it is your turn tonight.
  • Who’s turn it is to take out the trash?
  • Who’s stays or who goes off the island.
  • Who makes the team and who does not.
  • Who’s turn is it to walk the dog?
  • The new flavor of Mountain Dew.
  • Who will be our next American Idol?
  • What will be the best movie of the year?
  • Who will be the best actor and actress. or
  • Who will win this years Oscar.

Voting is simple, sort of ridiculous not to given all the situations we find it important to weigh our opinion against in the world.   All you have to do be an equal, participatory citizen in this country is spend less than 10 minutes today when the polls open and exercise your right to be American and VOTE!

I am second. I will share my experiences, as a child of God, husband to Daniel, father, best friend, brother, son, leader, professor, writer and photographer. My intention for this blog is to be random, with no plan, no list, no direction and no expectations. Very different from how I lived my past life. My journey has been blessed by the mercy and grace of God and unwavering love. I hope you enjoy reading and sharing my experiences of hurts, laughter, discovery, friendships, Christ, and my family. Temenos is a safe circle where you can be yourself with peace of mind. Temenos originates from a Greek word which refers to a universal instinct to create a protected, safe space in which to heal, restore and regenerate yourself. My temenos circle is a place to be still and seek Jesus. It becomes my place to pray, reflect in the word of our Lord to shrink, grow in him, and heal my soul. What is your temenos circle?
