Calvin Coolidge – His Birthday and Father

“And ye shall take you on the first day the boughs of goodly trees, branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before the LORD your God seven days.” Leviticus 23:40 KJV
On the fourth of July in 1872, John would have to skip the 4th of July celebrations in Plymouth Notch. You see, John’s son would be born on that day. It’s called a sukkah and it is used to celebrate the Festival of Sukkot. She then said, with the biggest smile on her face, “You know I don’t like surprises.”

Theodore Teddy Roosevelt – His first wife and his daughter

“Quicken me, O Lord, for thy name’s sake: for thy righteousness’ sake bring my soul out of trouble.” Psalm 143:11 KJV
The couple was so in love. “Sunshine” would become pregnant and move back in with her mother-in-law, Mittie. “Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!” the people shouted. “Our despair is gone! Our despair is gone!” began the celebration. It became a trial in which love stood no chance. No one was interested in love’s survival; everyone wanted “justice.”

John Tyler – His second wife Julia

“The LORD is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works.” Psalms 145:17 KJV

When the Princeton was ready to be shown off for the President, the President decided this would be the perfect way to impress Julia and her father. Their theory was that if someone bought a chocolate bar from me, they would then “owe” that child, or child’s parent, a purchase on some other overpriced, useless item.

“They which builded on the wall, and they that bare burdens, with those that laded, every one with one of his hands wrought in the work, and with the other hand held a weapon.” Nehemiah 4:17 KJV

When the mail stopped running this President took matters in his own hands. He probably had no idea that his story would one day be in the Bible. He barked out his commands to me. I was to take the fittings one by one and move them to the trailer’s new location.

“The rich man shall lie down, but he shall not be gathered: he openeth his eyes, and he is not.” Job 27:19 KJV

I’m confused. How does the flute know when to come in and which notes to play? General McClellan remembered Hiram’s previous drinking conviction and didn’t want him in his army. Wouldn’t it have been ironic if Abraham had said “No!” in the exact same voice?
