Open Letter to Nancy #5


Wow! A lot has happened since last time. I have kind of not wanted to get into some of this but there are some things that bother me and that I question. Oh, by the way, hello friend! I pray for you daily that God will guide your heart and mind to His truth.

The way I understand this new ‘culture’ is if you disagree with me you will be canceled from any further attention from me. Now, I don’t know about you but that really makes no sense at all if you think about it. What if it keeps being construed to mean more than it does now?

Take your child for instance, let’s say for this argument that you have tried to teach your child to say thank you when he receives a present. He absolutely refuses because he thinks he is owed the present so no thank you is required. Impasse. Will he be suddenly erased from your concerns? Will he suddenly be on his own?


Lets go the other way now. Say you mother, or close relative and you have a differing of opinions. Let’s say, for arguments sake, neither of you will budge on how you think. Do you just walk away and pretend they are no longer worthy of your attention?


Your religion is not the same as mine – you are canceled. Your political party is not the same as mine – you are canceled. You live in a different state and won’t move – you are canceled. You won’t protest with me about what I believe – you are canceled. The color of your skin is different than mine – you are canceled. I kneel only before my God – I am canceled. I am an American Patriot – I am canceled. I believe in life – I am canceled. This could go on and on, and still it makes no sense. If we are human and we claim to be civilized humans, then every person on the face of the earth has a right to his or her own opinion without being canceled by someone who thinks differently. They are just different.

Different is not bad. Musicians are different because they hear a music we cannot hear, but they share what they hear, it moves us to tears. Artists are different because they see everything through their lens of their eyes, and what beauty our eyes stare at when they make it visible to the rest of us. People in love are usually very different and when they give themselves to each other, such a magical change it makes. Different is not bad. Different is just different, and it does not mean we should fight, lie, violent protest and threaten with death others that do not see as we see or feel as we feel. What is wrong with different?

Now I know that some are going to say what about rights of others. If what I want would cause harm or death to another, I have no right to force what I believe on any other human. If what I want causes undue fear for life, causes any other human to feel belittled or shamed for the color of their skin, black or white, then what I want is not right. But here again, I believe in right and wrong, not shades of gray or that evil is good and good is evil. As humans, as Godly women, we should be able to distinguish the difference between lies and truths and see the worth of every human being in God’s eyes because in His eyes we all are the same. Jesus died for everyone on this planet because He see the worth of each and every one.

He did not cancel that one over there because they are cross-eyed. He did not cancel the other one in the corner because they have acne. He did not cancel the person down the street because they stutter. He did not cancel the person across the street because they look different. We should do the same. Reach out to the hurting and angry and frustrated and frightened and poor and rich and powerful and weak and show them respect as a human being. Maybe people have forgotten how to be kind, how to be thoughtful, how to show respect, how to honor, how to see people. If we looked into that treasure chest and saw each person as an expensive jewel, an work of art in gold or silver or precious stones, could we make a difference?



I know you and I differ on our outlooks on life because our history is different, but that does not make either of us wrong for being different nor does it give us the right to ‘cancel’ each other. I will still call you friend and I will still pray for you daily as I follow what His word teaches. “I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people – for kings and all those in authority…“1 Timothy 2:1-2

Open Letter to Nancy Pelosi #4

Surrender…Friendship

Hello again. I came across a study of the word surrender. A word that most people try to avoid. Surrender…cease resistance to an enemy or opponent. Not something that we Americans, for the most part, consider doing willingly. You must find it especially hard because of your position; however, surrender is not always bad.

We surrender our hearts when we fall in love.

We surrender what our life used to be to what it will be when a new life is given to us to take care of. Babies will do that.

As Godly women we surrender to Christ. Surrendering to Him and doing life with Him changes the trajectory of our lives forever. When we surrender ourselves in faith, He will open doors that were closed. He will close doors that should have never been opened.

Our lives are actually filled with surrender to something. Surrender to a party agenda. Surrender to violence to right a wrong. Surrender morals as long as we get ahead. Surrender to little white lies that become a spider’s web. Surrender to those little things that no one sees but we know we should not indulge. Surrender to just being in a bad mood today. These will change the trajectory of our loves but often the road leads to a place we really wish we hadn’t gone. Maybe to the world the surrender brought success but it guarantees hollowness to life.

As Godly women of faith we can surrender in love to God. This type of surrender, the one that requires a faith in a God bigger than we are, comes with responsibility. We dare not use the power we have to make ourselves more than we should. “Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgement.” Romans 12:3. A woman, even one in power, is more beautiful when she is clothed humility and grace. These come directly from surrender to God. When we surrender in love and grace it does not make us less, it makes us more.

The God we profess faith in made this. He made the stars, the planets, the universes and all the unseen wonders out there. Then He made you and me.

What happens when we really surrender to God? Well, I believe that each of us was designed for a certain assignment from God. The way we find it is through surrender. Some don’t find it because they will not surrender. But if we surrender and our heavenly assignment meets up with this earthly vessel then heaven touches earth and, O my, what awesome things become possible.

Knowing this I still struggle with surrender, but what if…what if we actually surrendered? Would He share heaven’s power with us? Not for selfish use, but to help our next door neighbor, the boy down the street, the church that is being hunted down, the city that is burning, the town that is under fire, the state that has lost hope, the nation that is tearing itself apart, and a world that is reeling without hope? Could we make a change for the better? Could we be brave enough to fight the battle that would come by standing against the popular? Could we find it within ourselves to surrender in pure love to Him who made this and see our cities and towns and states and nation change?

Surrender is hard.

Change is hard.

Life is hard.

Friend to friend I suggest you do your own study of what surrender means as you are a confessed woman of faith, and what a difference it could make. “Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen.” Ephesians 3:20-21

Nothing I have said is easily done, but as friendships that puts us on a level playing fields and you as a woman of faith, ask for wisdom, “let her ask of God, who give to all liberally and without reproach,” James 1:5 Jesus is faithful to those who call on Him and who believe He is.

P.S. This is letter # 4 but the number that I surrendered to is 7. The last one will be on September 28th.
