Wise Words, From Abraham Lincoln
I have made it no secret of how dissapointed I am in the outcome of our presidential election.
But, I didn't feel McCain was the one either. He was just the one I liked and agreed with the best. And I loved that VP pick he made. :)
Anyway, today in our homeschool, Elijah and I looked at Lincoln's Second Inaugural Address. I was floored. And thankful that not only did the Lord give my son a great lesson in a past great man, but that Lincoln's bold words could touch my heart and make me not so weary of the future.
Read what had me so impressed:
"With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation's wounds."
This is the stuff history is made of! This is the type of words our children so need to hear! I am humbled today. I am so blessed to have the chance to pass on to my children real learning, learning that changes the heart. This has happened so much in the past few weeks. I am just so thankful for homeschooling. It is a blessing in so many ways. I really love it.
