Happy Birthday George

It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible. George Washington

I've always enjoyed sharing a birthday with the father of our country. So, I've been standing in the kitchen reading quotes from my favorite president while eating a piece of cherry pie (for breakfast! :) ) I like that first one because it makes absolute sense to me and is contrary to the desires of some very vocal citizens in our country. The companion quotation is

Mankind, when left to themselves, are unfit for their own government. George Washington
Profound, George! For the leader of a government by the people and for the people to acknowledge that it takes God and the Bible to make this type of government work, I wonder how anyone could disagree. Left to our sinful nature, this grand experiment would just flop.

My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her. George Washington

This quotation though made me a little teary eyed. My job is the most important one on the planet...thanks for reminding me George.

Happy Birthday to us!
