For me, God and love can be descibed in much the same way. I may not know what they are exactly, but I think I know what they are not.

I have loved and served both God and man, and neither have proven to be fulfilling. And through my experiences, I have learned to distance myself from thinking I know much about either.

So in this time of elections and candidates, why do I talk about God and love? Because I want to share with you my experience, so that you won't find yourself settling for illusions.

When my (now) ex-husband asked me to marry him, thoughts of blissful security filled my head. I had already been thrilled by boyfriends, and I thought, this is the time to choose the person that I can settle down with to raise a family. As irony would have it, he asked me to marry him as we traveled in his Corvette convertible on Hard Road.

Over the course of our engagement, the illusions I had of him were dropped one by one. I would think to myself, “you're a big girl now, and you just need to get over all your grandiose expectations for love.”

I will spare you the details, but after 12 years and two children, it all boiled down to an issue of respect—or rather, a lack of it, and our marriage ended.

What does all this mean in terms of voters choosing between various candidates?

We are in the primaries! The primaries is the time when we should be out fishing for the best candidate! I keep hearing all this talk about settling for so and so because the one that is our favorite can't possibly win!

That's like asking your friends, family and even enemies to vote on who you should marry! How would they know what you want?
