A real quick thought

I was reading the scrolling news on Good Morning America this morning and I saw that they plan on using the same bible that was used to swear Abraham Lincoln into his presidency. It occurred to me then that although Abraham Lincoln did do good by freeing the slaves, he was also assassinated.

Aren't we just tempting fate here a little. Obama is the first black President in the history of the United States, and like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. he is making history. It just seem like a bad omen. Is it me or does anyone else feel the same way???

When they showed it, that thought ran through my mind too, actually.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays Charles.

Is it the same Bible they have used every time? Or has this one been put up since Lincoln, only to be brought out now? If it's the latter, then I agree... not a good omen. eeeek.

Hope you had a Merry Christmas..and that you are doing well! :)

Hey Shari

Yeah there is more than one bible, and I think Obama chose Lincoln's. I think presidents can choose to either swear on a bible or not.

Charles, where is Chris' blog? Did he leave?

If he could choose it doesn't seem a very good choice does it?! Matbe he doesn't have any pagan leanings and will trust God to look after him. Happy new year Charles! Jeannette xx
