Amazing Grace

Politics and religion.

Subjects to be avoided at all costs. But dude, I have a blog! Ignore my opinions if so inclined...

I need to get this off my chest. Boy, was I gunning for Hillary. As happy as I am that Obama conquered McCain, I believe she would have been the stronger choice. All this talk about a "new" administration never washed with me. Hillary is not Bill. Hillary had her own ideas and theories. Ah, but this is so Nov. 'O8...Just my segue into forbidden territory...

Religion. Controversial to say the least. When I read that a rapist in Brazil wasn't excommunicated because abortion is considered a greater sin than rape, well, I can't get behind that. But what I do embrace is the love I've received from so many church going, God fearing folk. I find it incredibly interesting that about half of my friends believe in God, and half of them send me "light", "good vibes" and "positive energy".

What does that say about me and my beliefs?

Don't misunderstand. I keep all of the love in my heart without reservation. I am ever grateful that people step out of their "bubbles" to support Kevin and I.

So it seems chronic illness raises many questions. Questions about mortality, faith and judgement. Questions I can't answer right now.

But what I can answer is that love, in all its myriad forms, has raised me up.

And if that sounds religious, so be it...
