Today, Christina and I went out for our breakfast date and chit-chatted about various things. It is good that we keep on touching base. I realized that in the midst of all our busyness with church and raising kids, it is tempting to make this a lower priority. But by the end of the day, it is these times that strengthen our marriage so that we can give more to our kids and to the Lord’s work. As we were talking, she brought up the fact that since the 11+ years of marriage that we have kept our dates every week (minus the times I was traveling). I am praying that we keep this up until our 50th anniversary.
After breakfast we went into the polling booth to vote in the Michigan Primary. Even though it is just a primary, I really felt it was important for us to vote and fulfill our civil duty. Several weeks ago, I was reminded that there have been many people throughout the U.S. history that died for the freedoms that we have in this country. Also, there was a time when certain minorities were not able to vote, but now we have the freedom and the ability therefore I wanted to make the most of it.
Overall, if we are going to seriously engage the various spheres of society, then we cannot ignore the “G” (Government and politics) in the Transformasphere Movement. This coming presidential election is going to be unique. I pray that we will look at all the issues and make an informed and wise choice for who will be leading out country.
