Happy Birthday, George

Isaiah 32:8
But he who is noble plans noble things,
and on noble things he stands.

Happy Birthday, officially, to George Washington today. In 2016, we seek a leader for our nation who will come closest to one of the best leaders our nation ever had, despite his flaws and failings. The best of who he was flowed from his faith in Christ, often denied by modern historians, but affirmed to the hilt by actual history. Here is a prayer of his from the end of his last address to congress as President on December 7, 1796. Goodwill had been a Christian Church for 88 years and Presbyterian for 67 of those years at this point.

The situation in which I now stand for the last time, in the midst of the representatives of the people of the United States, naturally recalls the period when the administration of the present form of government commenced, and I can not omit the occasion to congratulate you and my country on the success of the experiment, nor to repeat my fervent supplications to the Supreme Ruler of the Universe and Sovereign Arbiter of Nations that His providential care may still be extended to the United States, that the virtue and happiness of the people may be preserved, and that the Government which they have instituted for the protection of their liberties may be perpetual.

Amen.
