Tears are flowing freely down my cheeks as I listen to the news anchor reporting the California State Supreme Court ruling on Proposition 8. They've upheld the vote. Marriage is legally deemed bewteen a man and a woman here in California.However, they've also deemed the 18,000 plus same sex marriages are valid and legal. I'm not surprised about that twist. It was legal at the time. I can't believe how emotional I am over this. I am so thankful that all that we've done as a family and a decision we have made through much thought and yes, most especially through prayer.
At this time though there are acts of civil disobedience all are peaceful demonstrations and both sides, I pray, are treating each other with mutual respect. I hope all remains peaceful and all return home safe, no matter what your beleifs are.
Don't get me wrong friends, I am grateful that my vote meant something this day, but I know it is not over. Trends show a drastic change in our country beginning. At some point you will need to stand for what you beleive in, regardless of what viewpoint you have.
