Today is Inauguration Day, 2009

Today is Inauguration Day, 2009, and as I watched the comings, goings, and finally the Oath of Office on television, I was struck by one unarguable fact:

Today’s ceremonies showed, once again, that the United States is among the few countries on Earth which regularly changes its leaders peacefully and as a matter of course, according to its laws.

Whether you voted for the new President or not (and I did not), I hope you will do as I have done: wish him well and pray for Godly leadership for him and for guidance in his tenure in the White House, and most of all, pray for our beloved Nation.

May God bless us all and may God bless our Nation.

Phone call from granddaughter, “Re”

I haven’t been here in quite awhile, not since our kitty, Maggie May, died on December 12, 2008.  That is FAR too long! In 2009, I am going to post more often.

I got a cool telephone call last night, just before midnight.  My oldest granddaughter, Marie “Re” Lianne called me out of the blue!  We talked for about 45 minutes, just catching up on “stuff.” It was great hearing from her. You can check out her Weblog in the Links section on the right.  She’s a freshman at George Mason University and a terrific young woman! I’m very proud of her, as I am all of my grandchildren.

Thanks, Re, for the call. Phone me anytime!
