Friday Five: Red, Blue and Purple all over?

For RevGalBlogPals' "Friday Five":

Those of us who are in the United States have just been through quite a topsy-turvy election. During the campaign we heard a fair amount about red states and blue states, when in fact most of us live in some shade of purple. And so... a lighter look at those confounding colors:

1. Favorite red food
Hard one!!! Probably my BODACIOUS home-made chili! (Not to brag, but it's really good...)

2. Tell us about the bluest body of water you've ever seen in person.
Personson's Cay National Park, off of Grand Bahamas Island.

3. It's movie rental time: Blue Planet, The Color Purple, or Crimson Tide?
What? No SCARLET Letter, SCARLET Pimpernel, or Men of the SCARLET and Gray?
(homegrown film from Ohio State) Sigh... I refuse to chose.

4. What has you seeing red these days?
People who insist that God should be a Democrat or a Republican, especially those who seem to be unable to forgive one another's sins, regardless of political leaning.

5. What or who picks you up when you're feeling blue?
Hugs. Major big-time hugs from the fam or from friends, or a lap full of purrrrrrs.

Regardless of what shade was voted in, God is still on His Throne!

"Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God."
[Romans 13:1]

From our home to yours,

I'm so glad I'm not alone!

And you're right:

God's on His throne
No need to worry
God's on His throne
So I can rest
God's on His throne
And I can trust him
Almighty King
God's on His throne

Way to keep it in perspective, sister!
