Got Moose

Even though Ike made landfall 3 1/2 weeks ago, I have not been far from home since. As I was driving around yesterday while on errands, I noticed the explosion of political bumper stickers. I have to say my favorite is a take off on the Got Milk ad campaign, the sticker read: Got Moose.

My husband wants one. I think my husband fell in love with Sarah Palin when he saw a picture of her holding some kind of gun. My husband loves to hunt and fish, he eats what he catches/kills. I used to fish all the time, I no longer enjoy it. I hate to hunt. I do not eat what my husband catches/kills. However, if he would take up hunting chocolate, I would eat it.

I listen to McCain and Obama make promises to the American public. I don't want to be cynical, but on some level I think to myself Mr. Obama if anyone could deliver everything you say you want to deliver, they would have done it already. I never did understand his answer concerning Israel last night. Unless I missed it, he never said he would back Israel if they were attacked without going to the UN 1st.

My father used to drive LBJ around Houston when I was a little girl. LBJ had a secret service escort, but always had a local police officer as a driver. LBJ loved the space program and was in Houston frequently when he was VP and president. I know from reading history books, I would not have voted for him if I had been eligible to vote, he was an old school, Texas politician. LBJ & I agree on 1 point, he supported Israel. LBJ was asked why he supported Israel, he said because it was the right thing to do.

Supporting our ally Israel is just as important to me as many other factors. I pray God's candidate is chosen in November. I pray this country returns to God and is a "sheep nation". I pray revival comes to North America. I pray we continue to be a strong ally and friend of Israel.
And lastly, I pray God has mercy on us and does not give us what we deserve.

I pray these words from I Tim 2 over the USA:

1I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone— 2for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. 3This is good, and pleases God our Savior,

If you are an American citizen, vote in November, it's a privilege. Many people died to give us the right to vote. Many of my ancestors fought the British, many of my relatives fought in WW I and WW II as did yours, I want to honour my heritage by casting my ballot.

That's a good word. I join you in praying we are a "sheep nation" and stand for Israel. If you know God, you know His Will on that issue. I haven't seen the Got Moose sticker, but I'm with you on hunting. I don't eat any of it, but my husband does eat what he kills. We are a house divided on this one--not because I object philosophically to hunting--but, really, yuck! Joining you in prayer for our nation. Love,A

I wasn't too impressed with the answers last night on either side but I'm still voting McCain as the more more candidate...trying to vote biblical anyway.

That is so neat that your father drove around Lindon B. Johnson.

Love your blog! We really need to pray hard for the election. We need God at the helm and those who love and trust Him leading us.

Blessings
