Football season is in full swing. When our team isn’t doing well, we can be disheartened and blame it on the schedule, poor coaching, bad officiating, key injuries. But the bottom line is…they aren’t winning.
Sometimes our elected officials don’t win either.
Bill Barr was attorney general last year. He was good at the job, supporting President Trump’s agenda, and would have liked to continue in that role. If evidence of voter fraud had existed, he would have been the first to investigate it. Arizona’s audit failed to find voter irregularities. You cannot prove something that doesn’t exist.
We aren’t able to control the outcome of a game or the results of an election, but we are able to control how we respond to losses. We may choose to be angry and bitter, or we can be thankful for the blessings we enjoy and hopeful for the future. The biggest enemy of contentment is being unable to accept our facts, expecting someone to give us different ones.
