MrGene's Random Thoughts
Some times I'll get a subject in my head that I just need to write out. It might be a Biblical, a moral issue, political, whatever. This page might be more for the parents than the kids, but it will be appropiate for all ages.
A message from Honest Abe
It is the duty of nations as well as of people to owe their dependence upon the overruling power of God; to confess their sin and transgressions in humble sorrow, yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon; and to recognize the subline truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations are blessed whose God is the Lord!
We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of heaven; we have grown in numbers, wealth, and power as no other nation has ever known. But, we have forgotten God.
We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us, and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were prduced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us.
It has seemed to me fit and proper that God should be solemnly, reverently, and gratefully acknowledged, as one heart and one voice, by the whole American people.
I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November as a day of thanksgiving and praise to our beneficent Father who dwells in the heavens.
Don't you wish today's presidents would stand for God, and against "political correctness" and think like Abe?
