  • Great article on America's Great Presidents

    Just got done reading a good article in the Parade magazine which comes with our Sunday paper every week. There is an article called, "The Secrets Of America's Great Presidents" and I thought it was very thought provoking and informative, especially for me since I'm so confused on who, what and why in trying to pick a candidate. I've provided the link to the article just in case anyone was interested and doesn't get the Parade with their Sunday paper:

    To me, the icing on the cake of the article were the author's comments in the second paragraph:

    "I hope that as this campaign reaches its end, we can all move beyond the superficial "issues" that now play too large a role in Presidential politics. Let us look closely at the leadership styles of John McCain and Barack Obama and analyze their strengths and weaknesses in relation to our greatest leaders. It will take imagination to shift our present mode of thinking. Old habits die hard. But let us begin."
    The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.

    Faith is believing in advance what already makes sense in retrospect. O:-)
