Some interesting quotes

We get God's World News Early Edition (for kids). It had a quote from each President. All of the kids have been enjoying this part, as have Peter and I. There are some that we haven't agreed with but there are others that are surprising relevant for today.

"About the time we think we can make ends meet, somebody moves the ends."
-Herbert Hoover

"Though the people support the government; the government should not support the people."
-Grover Cleveland(Democrat)

"The only man who never makes a mistake is the man who never does anything."
-Theodore Roosevelt

"There is more selfishness and less principle among members of Congress...than I had any conception of."
-James Polk

"Philosophy is common sense with big words."
-James Monroe

There are many more, maybe I will list more another time. In the mean time I am taking care of a sick little girl. She is in the middle of her first cold and I am stuck at home as it has become windy and cool here.

I am adding a picture. I like the way the water is shown in the middle of the splash. And Peter's smile is great. He didn't know I would be including any of him in the picture, he's just smiling his lovely smile at his daughter. Do you think that's how God smiles at us?

What beautiful, big eyes! Yes, I do think that's how God smiles at us! Definitely a "Daddy" smile if I ever saw one.

Ruth, that is one GORGEOUS baby girl! She is so beautiful... really looks like a perfect doll. I'm so sorry she is sick! Poor girl!

(((hugs)))

p.s. I love Peter's smile here too. What a sweet Daddy he has always been! It's easy to tell that fatherhood is his joy.
