FDR Memorial in Washington DC

Just Rub Some Dirt on It

“Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what thou shalt say.” Exodus 4:12 KJV
Imagine the President’s horror when he picked up the New York Times the next day. The young lady stood up straight, because she was very proud of her place, and said, “Oh, yes, it is so beautiful.” To the little boy with the scrapped knee, its open heart surgery.

George HW Bush – Having a son be President

“But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips.” Job 2:10 KJV
Life can be real hard at times. We don’t always have to be the big winner to serve a purpose in God’s plan. One of the things about the Presidents you don’t hear a whole lot about is what their parents thought about their child becoming President.

I think he also thought, just as an egg is fragile, the world would come crashing down on our lives once our innocence got corrupted. The tower radioed back, “Sir, we’ve just received word about a shooting in Washington. There is no indication the President has been hit. Word is that two agents are down. That’s all we have right now. But I’m going to make some calls and see if I can get some more information.” The punishment for these alleged spies was designed to send a clear message back to Israel: “We’re not stupid. You can’t fool us. If you send us others, they will be treated the same way.”

George HW Bush – Meeting his wife Barbara

“Then thou scarest me with dreams, and terrifiest me through visions: So that my soul chooseth strangling, and death rather than my life.” Job 7:14-15 KJV
One should leave it to others, and not one’s self, the job of reaping praise. I had graced the land where my feet did not feel worthy. He borrowed the family Oldsmobile because it had a radio. He wanted to be prepared in case there were long moments of uncomfortable silence. The silence was eerie. Today was so much different. It would be him who would now control almost all of the conservations.

George HW Bush – Shot Down on Naval Bombing Run to Chichi Jima

“And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.” Luke 15:20 KJV

But you still think about your child. On Sunday, December 7, 1941 he probably started his day just like any other seventeen year old would. And the prayers never stop.

George HW Bush – The Loss of His Daughter

“My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother: For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck.” Proverbs 1: 8-9 KJV

I only remember the first few words of the conversation. That is very true, but I also believe it is a love story.

“Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me.” Jonah 1:2 KJV

“Now after the death of Moses the servant of the LORD it came to pass, that the LORD spake unto Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ minister, saying, Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, thou, and all this people, unto the land which I do give to them, even to the children of Israel.” Joshua 1: 1-2 KJV

Most of us will probably go back to our normal football and baseball lives when the World Cup ends. Our young man, who would become president, was also the left-handed first basemen for the Yale baseball team. Sometimes in life we come across these bigger than life characters that have so much influence on the direction of our lives.
