My Thoughts As I Try to Remain Cheerful...

Whatcha' think about this?



You betcha'!!!
*********************************************************************
Now a blast from the past!



I had forgotten just how awesome he was, until I read and remembered some of the stuff he said... and stood for .



**************************************************************

'Here's my strategy on the Cold War: We win, they lose.'

- Ronald Reagan


'The most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the government and I'm here to help.'

- Ronald Reagan


'The trouble with our liberal friends are not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so.'

- Ronald Reagan


'Of the four wars in my lifetime, none came about because the U.S. was too strong.'
- Ronald Reagan


'I have wondered at times about what the Ten Commandments would have looked like if Moses had run them through the U.S. Congress.'

- Ronald Reagan


'The taxpayer: That's someone who works for the federal

government but doesn't have to take the civil service examination.'
- Ronald Reagan


'Government is like a baby: An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other.'
- Ronald Reagan


'The nearest thing to eternal life we will ever see on this earth is a government program.'

- Ronald Reagan


'It has been said that politics is the second oldest profession. I have learned that it bears a striking resemblance to the first.'

- Ronald Reagan


'Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.'

- Ronald Reagan


'Politics is not a bad profession. If you succeed, there are many rewards; if you disgrace yourself, you can always write a book.'

- Ronald Reagan


'No arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is as formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women.'

- Ronald Reagan



'If we ever forget that we're one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under.'
- Ronald Reagan

And I keep reminding myself of this:

GOD HAS A PLAN!!!

We did have some great leaders in our past. Ronald Reagan was a very wise man. If only we could have a leader like that today, (sigh).

Well, as I said in the latest post on my blog, "I know not what the future holds, but I know who holds the future."

Praise God, He is still on the throne!

CONNIE'S THOUGHTS FROM THE HEART said...

Thanks for the trip down memory land. Those were the days. I would be sad but I know that God is in control of this too. My Pastor read a verse tonight that was a help to me hope it will be to you also until next time. Proverbs 21:1THE KING'S HEART IS IN THE HAND OF THE LORD, AS THE RIVERS OF WATER: HE TURNETH IT WHITHERSOEVER HE WILL. connie
