Hangman with "Jesus loved me" as the words

James Garfield – His Death

“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23 KJV

The prayer that he had scribbled on a piece of scrap paper slipped from his grasp. That was the signal. The judgment of Jesus was fast and brutal.

Bill Clinton – Forgetting Chelsea at the Airport

“But they, supposing him to have been in the company, went a day’s journey; and they sought him among their kinsfolk and acquaintance.” Luke 2:44 KJV

Mystery solved.
As the last limo pulled away and two men started rolling up the red carpet they realized they had been left behind.

James Garfield – The Election of 1880

“God thundereth marvellously with his voice; great things doeth he, which we cannot comprehend.” Job 37:5 KJV

“I challenge the correctness of the announcement. No man has a right, without the consent of the person voted for, to announce that person’s name and vote for him, in this convention. Such consent I have not given….”

Taft – Teddy Roosevelt – The Election of 1912

“If thou be wise, thou shalt be wise for thyself: but if thou scornest, thou alone shalt bear it.” Proverbs 9:12 KJV

Vacations are a great way to get away from the hustle, bustle, and pressures of the daily work life. The problem is when we stand in front of the trophy, all anyone sees is us.

Barack Obama – His Relationship with his Mother

“Which did eat the fat of their sacrifices, and drank the wine of their drink offerings? let them rise up and help you, and be your protection.” Deuteronomy 32:38 KJV

As I turned to look at the sand I noticed what looked like hundreds of sand crabs. The poor sand crabs just stare up into the sky just hoping for someone to stand on the beach and help protect them so they can keep up with their busy lives.

Tecumseh (Indian) - Clipart

William Henry Harrison – The Curse of Tecumseh

“And they set the ark of God upon a new cart, and brought it out of the house of Abinadab that was in Gibeah: and Uzzah and Ahio, the sons of Abinadab, drave the new cart.” 2 Samuel 6:3 KJV

It’s probably not politically correct to even talk about Indians this way today, but it kept us busy for hours. Tecumseh was a Shawnee Indian warrior. Tenskwatawa, the Prophet, was his younger brother. How it really happens or if it really happened at all is often suspect.

George HW Bush – College World Series and Meeting Babe Ruth

“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.

George Washington – His Love for his Wife Martha

“For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.” I Thessalonians 5:2

One of the best bargains I ever got was on a Bill Clinton book. How, then, could such a man, with such a sterling character, be so careless?

Clinton – Andrew Johnson – Hayes – Born After Their Father’s Death

“And, behold, there came a man named Jairus, and he was a ruler of the synagogue: and he fell down at Jesus’ feet, and besought him that he would come into his house: For he had one only daughter, about twelve years of age, and she lay a dying. But as he went the people thronged him.” Luke 8:41-42 KJV

Like almost every little boy, I had my favorite super hero. One of the strangest parts of these members is that their Presidencies were probably some of the most controversial we have ever had.

Washington – Monroe – John Quincy Adams – Unanimous Elections?

“And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.” Romans 5:3-5 KJV

I was probably just an average track runner, maybe a little above average my senior year. I was definitely not a super star. We are all lucky because Jesus still found a way to be victorious, even with the betrayal of a friend.
