They are here! Yes, the first one showed up today. It is fall migration for the Monarch butterfly.
Today was a hard day for me. My heart is breaking over the judgemental nature of humans. I had to get up and remove myself from my computer. I certainly do not mind people expressing what they like about their candidate's platform. What has me baffled is the 'hatred' shown for the candidate that isn't being voted for anyway. I guess the saying, bad press is a marketing gold mine is true, though.
I believe that we can argue platform and policy, but judging another's sins is a slippery slope.
I was watching a video on the Freemasons. In this historical and secretive fraternity, there are two things never discussed; religion and politics. Although you must believe in a higher & supreme being to be a member, there is no mention of political affiliation involved. We could learn something from them.
Through my Asperger's wiring, I am reminded that I do not reach my conclusions the same way that others might. I'm trying hard to find my much needed calm, routine and peace in this election season where it is seen by most as a game of strategical political chess, a World Series of political proportion, or a movie entitled Name that Sin.
So, when I become overwhelmed by sadness, I remove myself and allow God to mend my heart and mind.
Today, it was that first Monarch that caught my eye. It is not by accident that I saw it. It was a gift.
In Ecclesiastes 3:11, I find that He makes everything beautiful in its time. Just like the butterfly, I know that God is creating beauty, even in this political season.
On an Asperger's note, here is a blog with a good description of our day. Ties That Bind
Fresh Find: I like this double cot tent. It looks like a great backyard outing location.
