Too Much Time to Think

Tonight, I managed to get the boys in bed by 7:30 pm.  I was in bed by 8 pm.  It is now 10 pm, and I am wide awake.  This is still a VERY early night for me, lately.

All of this war talk is taxing! ¬†I honestly feel bad for people in Washington. ¬†I am not sure I have ever felt that way before, but if I think this much about it from the comfort of my home, I cannot imagine what it’s like to have to MAKE the decisions.

Do I know what would be best??  Absolutely not.  

Here’s what I DO know:

  • When we were in Desert Storm, I was very young. ¬†I remember seeing the bombs exploding on TV and I remember asking my Dad why we were over THERE. ¬†He said simply, as he so often did, we go there so they don’t come here.
  • If we strike, I am terribly worried that we will, in fact, be struck back. ¬†Somewhere, in some way. ¬†Yes, that includes the worry for our allies. ¬†
  • Evil cannot be let to run rampant. ¬†There must be some sort accountability; no matter who it is.

This is the point that I send it back up to God.  I believe in my heart God will guide the decisions, if He is allowed to do so.  I pray that He is with Washington during this time.  Helping ask the right questions, and supplying the right answers.  

As much as I fear war, I fear 9/11, more.



Do we want this again?? ¬†I hear the argument that it’s not our fight. ¬†There’s not threat to us. ¬†Should we wait until it happens again; ¬†until it comes HERE?

***McCrazy Daily Lesson:  Tonight as we go to sleep, we pray for the safety of our country.  We pray for the safety of our ships and sailors.  We pray for help in the decision making process.  We pray for peace for all the loved ones involved.  Amen.***
