Thank You, Jesus, for Keeping Me Focused on What Really Matters

I wrote to Congressman Eric Cantor today. It won’t do any good, probably, but I feel better.

Hon. Eric Cantor

I told him I was disappointed in him, my Congressman, and others, for voting to repeal the new health care law when they don’t have any viable alternative to it. If they should succeed, we will go back to the old way–people kicked off insurance when they get sick, health care bureaucrats (the private ones working for companies whose main business is making a profit) making decisions about whether my doctor is right to order a certain test or medication, etc.

I know you have read me on this subject before, so I will not go on.

But I do need to register my sadness that our leaders–and it can be laid at the feet of more than one side–so often seem more interested in making points than in making laws that work.

I am so glad I work for a coach who wants me to make things work for people, not worry about whether they are on my side or not, not worry whether they believe the way I do or not.

Thank you, Jesus, for keeping me focused on what really matters.

  1. Alway’s write in hopes that you may inspire a deeper understanding. If we all gave up and said it didnt matter, God would truely be saddened. In God, we can do anything. DO = Action.

    Stay true to the Word and Act with God’s Love and each whisper will become a storm of truth.

    God Bless You!
