On losing an election


I will probably not blog again until next week.

Looking at the rest of this week I just see too much travel and activity: a birthday celebration, a baseball game and the State Fair..

I am replacing my desktop CPU. I need to spend some time backing everything up.

Also, I am emotionally wrung out.

Yesterday was the primary election here in Missouri.

I was politically active this year for the first time since I was a very young man. When I was an active pastor, I never did anything political outside the privacy of the voting booth. I had to marry, bury, pray with, and teach people of all political persuasions.

Since I have retired I have pretty much continued that practice, although I have expressed an opinion about policies and elections a few times here. In retirement I do not feel as constrained as I once did..
