Hopeful Friday - This Land That I Love...

On this Hopeful Friday I want to thank God that I live in this country. I know we are all going through this troubling time right now. But I am so thankful I live in a country where we can chose. Where we have a right to vote and make our opinions count. So I urge each of you to use that personal freedom on November 4th...please get out and vote!!

I just wanted to share that one of my new found freedoms is being able to show my support of my candidate...my ex would have never allowed me to do this...so woo-hooo!! I'm exercising newfound personal freedom! (PS: I know that not everyone who reads this will agree with my choice of candidates, but the point is I AM FREE NOW!!)

This one's in my front yard...

And this one's on my car...

May God bless each one of you and may you find freedom in each day!

Hugs,

Victoria Lynn

I don't care what choice others make or indorse.
Whoever you vote for is a right and that's how I think about it.

So, I am not offended by anyones display.

Ciao

The great thing about this country is that we can choose our own candidates....I am so happy for you that you have the freedom now to voice your opinion!

You go girl. We are free to make choices in our lives and for our political preferences. When we are in a relationship that we are not free, it is time for a change. I can feel the happiness in your text. I can see that you are very hopeful and I do agree with your choice for president. Go McCain and Palin.
Hugs...Jeanne

Yes, To vote is a privilege that so many take for granted.
I thank God that we leave in a country with so many freedom of choice and religion.

Hey Sweet Victoria!
Thanks for stopping by my blog this past week.

So glad you have your newfound personal freedom and I know you are loving every minute of it! GOD is good. I too am so thankful for the country we live, all our choices and freedoms that many have fought the right to give us.

Hopefully many won't loose sight of that and like you said get out and vote!

God bless ya...Lorena

Hi Victoria Lynn:
I say "Ditto" to everything you said. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. The tough times will pass.
I like Sarah Palin. She's been pounded in the press lately but she handles it with class.
I don't get offended by anyone's opinion or choices, I'm just glad we have the right to show it.
Have a great weekend.
Ginger

We are so spoiled here in America with all our freedoms, but we need to remember how many sacrificed for our freedoms. It's wonderful that you sound so happy-glad for your personal freedom. Luv, Nerm

Dear Victoria Lynn,
Thank you so much for the comments you left for me recently. I am just getting a chance to get back to everyone. I so appreciate your thoughts and prayers. It has been extremely tough and surreal, the things we have been dealing with but I know one day it will get easier..

Regarding this post, I am happy to see that you are voting for McCain/Palin. Here in Canada, most people I talk to all agree that he is the best choice out of the 2 of them. But then again we would vote Republican anyway since we are strong conservatives here :)
I wish more people in the States knew though how much the majority here are pulling for McCain to win. Because if Obama wins, it will be bad for Canada just like it will be for the States and we really dont want to see that happen.

hugs,
Candy

You must feel like a new person. It's nice how you are realizing all the things you are free and able to do now that you are your own woman. Enjoy every minute of it because that's how it is supposed to be!!!
