~ Poetry From My Heart To Yours ~

The falling snow is very peaceful and beautiful to look at. Too bad the cold weather goes along with it. I'd rather have the warm air, but I do appreciate the beauty of freshly fallen snow. Your voice sounds good.

the sound of silence ... it is so beautiful.I love watching the snow fall ... in the dead of the night when all is asleep. All those beautiful individual snowdrops floating gently to the ground ... not a whisper. Thank you for a moment of pureness. :o)
BEAUTIFUL!well I always say this too...sometimes the sweetest music to ears is the laughter of an innocent child or the sound of raindrops...or the footsteps sounds of a loved-one returning....Keshi.

All the good from the Savior of the world is communicated to us through this book." -- President Abraham Lincoln"For we must consider that we shall be as a City upon a hill. The eyes of all people are upon us. So that if we shall deal falsely with our God in this work we have undertaken, and so cause Him to withdraw his present help from us, we shall be made a story and a byword throughout the world." --John Winthrop, Governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, 1630"It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible." - President George Washington"The Bible is no mere book, but a Living Creature, with a power that conquers all that oppose it." - Napoleon"That Book accounts for the supremacy of England." - Queen Victoria"If there is anything in my thought or style to commend, the credit is due my parents for instilling in me an earlylove of the Scriptures. If we abide by the principals taught in the Bible, our country will go on prospering and to prosper; but if we and our posterity neglect its instructions and authority,no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us andbury all our glory in profound obscurity." - Daniel Webster (Founding Father)"The Bible is worth all other books which have ever been printed." - Patrick Henry (original member of the Continental Congress)"The Bible is the anchor of our liberties." - President U.S. Grant"It is impossible to enslave mentally or socially a Bible-reading people. The principals of the Bible are the groundwork of human freedom."- Horace Greeley (Editor)"That Book is the rock on which our Republic rests." - President Andrew Jackson"In all my perplexities and distresses, the Bible has never failed to give me light and strength." - Gen. Robert E. Lee"Bible reading is an education in itself." - Lord Tennyson (Poet)"So great is my veneration for the Bible that the earlier my children begin to read it the more confident will be my hope that they will prove useful citizens of their country and respectable members of society. I have formany years made it a practice to read through the Bible once every year." - President John Quincy Adams"The existence of the Bible, as a Book for the people, is the greatest benefit which the human race has ever experienced. Every attempt to belittle it is a crime against humanity." - Immanuel Kant (Philosopher)"The New Testament is the very best Book that ever or ever will be known in the world." - Charles Dickens (Author)"All human discoveries seem to be made only for the purpose of confirming more and more strongly the truths contained in the Sacred Scriptures." - Sir William Herschel (Astronomer)"There are more sure marks of authenticity in the Bible than in any profane history." - Sir Isaac Newton (Scientist)"Let mental culture go on advancing, let the natural sciences progress in even greater extent and depth, and the human mind widen itself as much as it desires; beyond the elevationand moral culture of Christianity, as it shines forth in the Gospels, it will not go." - Goethe (Author)"I have known ninety-five of the world's great men in my time, and of these eight-seven were followers of the Bible. The Bible is stamped with a Specialty of Origin, and an immeasurable distance separates it from all competitors." - W.E. Gladstone (Prime Minister)"Whatever merit there is in anything that I have written is simply due to the fact that when I was a chile my mother daily read me a part of the Bible and daily made me learn a part of it by heart." - John Ruskin (art critic and social commentator)"The Bible has been the Magna Charta of the poor and oppressed. The human race is not in a position to dispense with it." - Thomas Huxley (Author & Scientist)"The whole hope of human progress is suspended on the ever growing influence of the Bible." - W.H. Seward (Secretary of State)"America was born a Christian nation. America was born to exemplify that devotion to the elements of righteousness, which are derived from the revelations of Holy Scriptures. Part of the destiny of Americans lies in their daily perusal of this great book of revelations. That if they would see America free and pure they will make their own spirits free and pure by this baptism of the Holy Spirit."--President Woodrow WilsonFor Christians, the life and death of Jesus are the ultimate expressions of love, and the supreme demonstrations of God's mercy, faithfulness, and redemption. Since Christ's miraculous Resurrection on Easter, more than 2,000 years ago, Christians have expressed joy and gratitude for this wondrous sacrifice and for God's promise of freedom forthe oppressed, healing for the broken -hearted, and salvation. --President George W. Bush"It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ. For thisvery reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here."--Patrick Henry (original member of the Continental Congress)God designed humans to want to believe in something. That's the image of God that is in us. But as G. K. Chesterton famously put it, when we reject the God of the Bible, we don't believe in nothing; we believe in everything -- including Little Green Men. - - Chuck ColsonI am trying here to prevent anyone from saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Jesus Christ: "I'm ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don't accept His claim to be God."That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic -- on a level with a man who says he is a poached egg -- or else he would be the Devil of Hell.You must make your choice. Either this Man was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse .... You can shut Him up for fool, you can spit at Him and kill Him as a demon; or you can fall at His feet and call HimLord and God. But let us not come up with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that option open to us. He did not intend to. -- From Case for Christianity, by C.S. Lewis"Let every student be plainly instructed and earnestly pressed to consider well the main end of his life and studies is to know God and Jesus Christ which is eternal life (John 17:3)." - - - The Laws and Statutes of Harvard College in 1643 "All scholars shall live religious, godly, and blameless lives according to the rules of God's Word, diligently reading the Holy Scriptures, the fountain of light and truth; and constantly attend upon all the duties of religion, both in public and secret." - - - Two central requirements in Yale College 1745 charterIf you stop believing what your professor told you had to be true and if you start thinking for yourself you may come to someconclusions you hadn't expected. You may find the Bible makes more sense than you thought or were told to think. Allow yourselfto be ruined, ruined with regard to what you always thought could be true. Can you believe what you don't understand? You and I believe everyday what we don't understand unless it comes to the issue of salvation. - - - Dr. Woodrow KrollThere is simply no historic foundation for the position that the Framers intended to build the 'wall of separation' that was constitutionalized in Everson. The 'wall of separation between church and state' is a metaphor based on bad history, a metaphor which has proved useless as a guide to judging. It should be frankly and explicitly abandoned. - - - Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court, William RehnquistIn 1796 the US Supreme Court issued this ruling, "By our form of government, the Christian religion is the established religion,and all sects and denominations of Christians are placed on equal footing." Some 57 years later, after Congress was petitioned to separate Christian principles from government, in 1853 the House Judiciary Committee issued their formal report, including these words: "In this age there is no substitute for Christianity. This was the religion of the founders of the republic, and they expected it to be the religion of their dependents. The great vital, conservative elements in our system is the belief of our people in the pure doctrines and divine truths of the gospel of Jesus Christ." - - - Dr. Gerald Beavan "It is the duty of nations, as well as of men, to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God and to recognize the sublime truth announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord."-- President Abraham LincolnTrust in yourself and you are doomed to disappointment; trust in money and you may have it taken from you; but trust in God, and you are never to be confounded in time or eternity. - D.L. MoodyFaith and love are apt to be spasmodic in the best of minds. Men and women live on the brink of mysteries and harmoniesinto which they never enter and with their hand on the doorlatch they die outside. - - GK ChestertonBest wishes for continued ascendancy,Dr. WhoamiP.S.
