John Piper had something to share as I flip to my facebook wall. How appropriate a message on Abraham Lincoln when we choose a President today.
Perhaps a picture perfect first family although desirable, the lack thereof may conceal a special President. So just stick with the man and accept the family that goes with it. None of the prospective First Wives as far as we can tell is remotely like Mary Todd anyway.
No President moves me like Lincoln. Look at his long face. So much for the joy of the Lord is my strength. Of course that's true that joy was present which fill the letters he had written to the common people. Shallow types among us have no blinking idea faking it and confusing new seekers of the Faith. In joy, Lincoln and Mother Teresa were connected. As their roles were different, the display were also not the same.
America was a nation far more divided that we are? Now who among the four is the most unifying?
