Weekend Wisdom: One

I pray someday we return to a united country instead of one so deeply divided.

“One flag, one land, one heart, one hand, one nation evermore!”

Oliver Wendell Holmes

Since the article where I found this quote did not state if it was Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr or Sr that said today’s quote, there are links to Wikipedia articles on both gentlemen.

My Prayer For Our Country

The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

Psalm 121:7-8 (KJV)

Remember this verse when it seems like righteous people are getting steamrolled by the evil ones.

But the wicked will perish: Though the LORD’s enemies are like the flowers of the field, they will be consumed, they will go up in smoke.

Psalm 37:20 (NIV)

I read several versions of Psalm 37:20 but I like this one that clearly states the Lord’s enemies will go up in smoke. No fancy schmancy language in this version, just the facts.

HAPPY BASTILLE DAY!

(Author’s note: This post is in honor of my French teacher. I am sorry dear teacher that the only French I remember comes from Lady Marmalade.)

The Bastille was a medieval prison in France. It was stormed by the French people early in the revolution. (You can find out more here.)

“Storm the Bastille!” was my 2011 motto for the year.

So grab a French baguette, wine, and brie cheese then go find a perfect picnic spot. But only AFTER you have stormed the bastille in your life (job, grief, family feud etc..)
