Dear Governor Hogan, You Misjudge Me

See, Governor, I don’t think you know who I am.

You think that if you stand up at your podium enough times and threaten me with arrest, fines, and jail time, I’ll be afraid and give up.

You think if you call me enough names, exaggerate the threat of illness, I’ll be afraid and give up.

You think if you tell my fellow citizens to report me, I’ll give up.

You think that if you put illegal and unconstitutional mandates in writing, I’ll give up.

You misjudge me.

You think you can stop me from traveling to celebrate Thanksgiving and/or Christmas with my family.

But, I promise you, I will go.

I will go because no fines, police, jail time, tattle tales, over reaching, dictatorial government can keep me from seeing my family and giving them my love and giving thanks to my Lord for his blessings.

All of that means more than any petty threats a little man can make to show his “power.”

You don’t have power over me and I do not serve you. I serve my God, family and country. And I will do anything I can to continue that service.

Even if it hurts me. Even if you try to harm me.

Psalm 112 says, “Surely the righteous will never be shaken. Their hearts are secure, they will have no fear, in the end they will look in triumph on their foes.”

It also says, ” The wicked will see and be vexed, they will gnash their teer and waste away; the longings of the wicked will come to nothing.”

Larry, you don’t know me. If you did, you would know you will never win this battle. Because I will fight you EVERY STEP OF THE WAY.
