Putting green at Eisenhower's home - Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

Dwight Eisenhower’s Poor Upbringing

I saw Jesus at McDonalds

Genesis 1:1 KJV

Americans have a great advantage over the rest of the world, at least in one respect: we are allowed to dream. What’s more, we can act on those dreams. His father probably had that desire. His father was a common laborer, but with the inheritance from his father (our President’s grandfather) he bought and owned a little general store. One thing about American dreams, though, is they don’t always have a happy ending. That was the case with this little general store in Texas. It failed. So his father had to resort to living in a small rented shack.

John F. Kennedy, Jr.’s Missing Father

“And Joseph made ready his chariot, and went up to meet Israel his father, to Goshen, and presented himself unto him; and he fell on his neck, and wept on his neck a good while.”

Genesis 46:29 KJV

I almost feel cheated and I didn’t really even do anything to deserve it. Like most of the people I’ve talked to, we all seem a little disgusted about our government lately.

Luke 7:22 KJV

Imagine a world where someone listened so intently to all your spoken words. What if you were to just say something like: “Blah, blah, blah,” and they looked at you like you had the wisdom of Solomon? What if you had one of those really bad days where everything seemed to go wrong and no one would even give you the time of day and you came across this person who just sat there listening to you as you whined and you just sensed they felt your pain? One of the best I’ve ever known at this was Tucker, a sweet little dog we use to have.

Thomas Jefferson’s Modesty

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

Genesis 1:1 KJV

In the beginning, now that’s a great place to start. To take an idea, a thought, or a concept and mold it into something tangible is really exciting. Genesis 1: 2-5 tells us that God divided darkness and light and called it the first day. Most creations follow this path. They divide those things that can’t be seen, like thoughts and ideas and they bring them into a light, such as an invention, a constitution, or even a website.
