This week my blog’s intention changed.  What I was going to write, I’ll share at another time.

My heart is heavy with all that is going on in our world, our country,  in our homes, and among friends.  I’ve noticed an incredibly bitter shift in our dialogue and how we express our differences of opinion.

 Not only is our climate (literally) changed towards chaos and disorder, but so has our conversation.  

When did we give ourselves permission to be rude towards one another…

When did we give ourselves permission to call each other names…

When did we decide that a difference of opinion concludes that one of us is wrong…

When did we decide who should live among us and who should stay…

When did we start to think that being a different ethnicity, race, culture, religion is something to fear…

When did we decide that character doesn’t count…

When did we decide that the commandment of “love one another” no longer applies…

When did we decide that lying is better than telling the truth just to win a point…

When did we decide that social media is the best platform to share our differences uncivilly…

When will we learn that respect, honor, integrity, truth, selflessness, and love is what will prevail?  These are the character traits that will unite us and move us forward.

Lesson –

Do we want to be happy or do we want to be right?  

There is a consequence in both.  You choose.
