Today's Founders Quote: Convincing Proofs of Truth
"I have lived, sir, a long time; and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth, that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid?"
- Benjamin Franklin, 1787.
It surprises me to hear this one from Ben Franklin, who was very pragmatic - and quite the ladies man... But, he was about 81 at the time, and people get very reflective when they see their time coming. We tend to think that God is a lot like DC and business: God set the table for us by giving us everything needed to make a perfect world, and it's up to us to make it a reality. We either screw it up or make it happen....
One thing that we see God's hand in making is Teresa Palmer. Ladies please note: you don't need to worship the tanning salon to be hot. Yeah, we have a thing for pale chicks... Could bounce a quarter of that tummy!
