Jack’s Winning Words 5/10/16
“While others prayed for the good time coming, I worked for it.” (Victoria Woodhull) It’s a successful day when I learn something new. Woodhull was the first woman to be nominated for President of the USA…and that was 144 years ago. She was a leader in the movement to get voting rights for women. Today’s her birthday. Her quote is a religious truism. Some people, in their prayers, expect God to do all of the work. Some miracles are a partnership. ;-) Jack
FROM BLAZING OAKS: I learned something today, too. Had no idea a woman had ever been nominated for PRES! Yes, often we need to be the hands and feet of God for his work to be done on earth! Interesting that Jesus told his disciples that they would do greater works than He'd done, since he was leaving, and they remained to work! That we know of, that is not often the case today. Miracles do happen, but remain a rarity!====JACK: There's a woman in our church whose maiden name is, Miracle.
FROM TARMART REV: Always think of Noah and the ark with these reminders-- praying with a hammer in hand!!====JACK: I hear that there's a replica of Noah's Ark in Williamston, Kentucky. Is a visit there on your bucket list?
FROM TUCSON JUDY: Thanks, Jack, for keeping these helps coming. I was especially grateful to hear the name of Victoria Woodhull in regard to the women's right to vote.====JACK: Will it happen this year...a woman nominated and elected...after 144 years? Victoria may leap from her grave.
FROM FACEBOOK LIZ: God helps those who help themselves...====JACK: Algernon Sidney, an Englishman, first came up with that quote.
