I couldn't say it better so I'm not going to

I have not blogged about it much, but the past several months in our country have been very troubling to me.     I have tried to put relationships over politics and opinions and sometimes I have had to keep my mouth shut.    And as the Queen Grandmother said in the Crown (a series about Queen Elizabeth that Bart and I have been watching on Netflix)"

To do nothing is the hardest job of all and it will take ounce of energy that you have.To be impartial is not natural not human. People will always want you to smile or agree or frown.And the minute you do, you will have declared a position. A point of view.
And that is the one thing as sovereign that you are not entitled to do.
The less you do, or the less you say or agree or smile--- the better" 
Obviously I am not sovereign, but I have realized more and more lately that in order to protect people and relationships, that doing and saying nothing is the hardest job of all.   I am getting way off the point here, and I am NOT saying that those of you who have made your opinions known are wrong in doing so, but I believe for now, at this point in time, with the circumstances in my life, that God is asking me to keep my mouth shut.  That doesn't mean that I don't occasionally slip up, but as a general rule I try and do the right thing without saying much.

BUT, I read something today that is so good ... it sums up so much of what I've been feeling and wanting to say lately, that I had to put it here....

Check this out.  It's well worth the time to read it.
