WASHINGTON’S PRAYER & HOW TO WRECK YOUR CELLPHONE

Posted: November 24, 2009 in Uncategorized
George Washington’s Prayer for the United States of America

Almighty God; We make our earnest prayer that Thou will keep the United States in Thy Holy protection; and Thou wilt incline the hearts of the citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to government; and entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another and for their fellow citizens of the Unites States at large.

And finally that Thou wilt most graciously be pleased to dispose us to do justice, to love mercy, and to demean ourselves with that charity, humility, and pacific temper of mind which were the characteristics of the Divine Author of our blessed religion, and without a humble  imitation of whose example in these things we can never hope to be a happy nation.  Grant our supplication, we beseech Thee, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The original source of the prayer is the concluding paragraph in Washington’s farewell circular letter sent to the governors of the thirteen states from his headquarters in Newburgh, New York, June 8, 1783.


How to Wreck Your Cellphone

1, Last Saturday while a mechanic was working on the generator at the Women’s Center he inadvertently dropped his cell phone onto the motor while the generator was running.  The cell phone came in contact with the rapidly turning fan and within about three seconds the cell phone was no more than small pieces of unidentifiable plastic.  We did find his SIM card, although it was cut in half.  I saw him last night and couldn’t resist asking him to call me.

2, Yesterday Beth was pulling into our driveway with my truck and suddenly Anne, our female mastiff who is quite mouthy and just loves to bark ran out onto the street in front of our house at the same time a young man was walking by.  He was so startled and afraid of the barking big dog coming toward him that he threw at her what was in his hand, which just happened to be his cell phone.  He missed Annie but his cell phone smashed onto the dirt, rocky road and broke into pieces.  So last night, as I suspected, the young man came by and showed me what was left of his phone and it cost me about $35.00 to pay for the phone.  I should at least be glad that he didn’t have a computer in his hands.
