Last night was a historic night and when we woke up this morning we had a new president-elect. Today we have another important decision to make, and that is how we respond. Maybe you have already expressed your thoughts in your Facebook status. I imagine you will have plenty of opportunities to express your thoughts at the proverbial "water cooler" this week.
Do the words you use bring unity or division? Do they bring life or reap death? Do they bring honor or hostility? What comes out of your mouth comes from your heart, is it an honest reflection...of you...of what you believe...
I learned a valuable lesson last night while chatting online with a friend...our words and attitudes have a lasting impact. Choose them wisely.
What is more important than how we vote on Nov. 4 is how we live on Nov. 3 and Nov. 5. We vote everyday with our lives. We vote every day with our feet, our hands, our lips, and our wallets….ultimate change does not just happen one day every four years. —Shane Claiborne
