PRESIDENT’S DAY

Somewhere between then and now it became politically incorrect to use the Bible as a reference point by presidents of our country.  Ronald Reagan wasn’t afraid to talk about God or about the founding of our nation under God’s laws and neither should we.

America grew out of a group of immigrants who wanted something better.  They were dissatisfied by not being able to worship as they chose – by not being able to voice their opinions without fear of being labeled insurrectionists- by using God given talents to construct a whole new nation conceived in liberty; a nation that would go on to be one of the brightest and best because of the people not their leaders.

Unfortunately times have changed, but I believe the spirit of America is still alive.  Most of us still know what the American dream is.  There are those who realize that our accomplishments are the result of hard work and determination.  The brilliance of a nation under God still glows and even though it may appear a dying ember, the fire is still there.

As citizens of this great nation, we set a day aside to honor the men who served as President.  Most of them were men of honor.  Some were self-serving.  Some had their own agenda.  Some were corrupt.  Some were sincerely concerned about the future of America.  They were all chosen by the people they would lead.  Isn’t that the one great freedom we still possess?

On this President’s Day, let’s remember all the men that served their country in this high office, but let’s never forget our God who made this nation possible

Psalm 103:19 The Lord has established his throne in the heavens, and his kingdom rules overall.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

    Kathy, I love your Godly AND American spirit! Particularly, the quote. Yes, we must honor the positions; the good, the bad,…God is our ultimate authority; we know that. And it’s still HIS will whatever happens–so the best we can do is keep giving our best and keep ourselves in HIS will, lest to be distracted by the disdain. Like you, I’ll focus on the good of our country and its good people. Sending love, hugs, and prayers always. ❤🙏

    I have been a member of the Presidential Prayer Team from within a month of it starting after Sep 11, and they used to have a daily presidential quote. I would copy the ones that I liked the most and then I lost the file – bummer. But there were a few conspicuously absent presidents, but George Washington, John Adams, Abraham Lincoln, and Ronald Reagan were definitely quotable presidents when it came to their trust in God. I think they quit those quotes when Obama was inaugurated, not that that had anything to do with it. Each new president seems to have their own ideas about people praying for them and they share or do not share their schedule accordingly.
