In keeping with the season, I think it’s fitting to remember that we are all children of God.
That includes those among us who choose to turn their backs upon the rest, even going so far as to massacre innocent people.
God the Almighty Father will determine their fate.
We know not what lies deep within one another’s hearts…our sorrows, our anxieties.
Only God knows.
Rather than sit in judgment, we should rally with one another to heal any divisiveness.
Our fundamental humanity should bind us one with the other.
We should put aside our robes of many colors…racial, cultural, religious.
Those who would lead us astray and isolate us one from the other are themselves enemies of humanity and…of God.
“I am the Lord thy God…thou shalt have no other gods before me.”
“The Lord is my Shepherd…”
Let us not follow graven images eager to raise themselves up to be false gods.
They are only interested in amassing personal wealth and an army of followers to rival all that has been created by the one, true God of all people.
God does not choose one race over the other.
God does not choose one culture over the other.
God does not choose one religion over the other.
God created all of us with love.
God will have the final say…
…about what we have done with His love.

I read one time that the first thing evil influences do to gain the upper hand is seperate a person form those he or she loves and who love them. In unity there is strength.

Isolation breeds contempt…doubly bad for right-wing, Republican extremists.

It is wonderful to see you again — thank you for sharing and linking to Nurturing Thursday! 🙂
Yours is the only site I think of when I return to blogging, especially after a lengthy absence. The nurturing thoughts offered always warm my soul and lift my spirit. An oasis in an environment that often lacks compassion for one another and fills our souls with stress and strife. God bless you for that, Becca…and hugs…always.

I have always believed that. Why it’s so hard for others I’ll never know. Peel our skin and we all look the same. Have missed your posts, Huggy!
Hugs for your faithful friendship, goddess…and always for your comments. I’ve been trying to keep up with life’s daily blessings…aka, my chores and tasks. Writing is my getaway…it’s just that I haven’t been able to get away lately. But I’ll try…with your encouraging words…I will definitely try. lots of aloha…
