Hidden Treasures

The Bible is much more than a book of religion.

Don’t Worry

Corrie Ten Boom said, “Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow; it empties today of its strength.” When God says no, there is a reason…and it is a good one.

God’s doing something upriver that you just can’t see yet. It’s always tough when something we want doesn’t happen, but the best thing about God is, He’s got your best interests in mind.  anon.

Reaganism

 

Principles that President Ronald Reagan taught and lived.

He described himself as an undying optimist, especially in regard to America’s future.

Life is one grand sweet song, so start the music.

The top priority of the federal government is the safety of this country.

Some have forgotten why we have a military. It’s not to promote war. It’s to be prepared for peace.

Some people wonder all their lives if they made a difference. The Marines don’t have that problem.

We don’t have a trillion dollar debt because we haven’t taxed enough; we have a trillion dollar debt because we spend too much.

Inflation is as violent as a mugger, as frightening as an armed robber, and as deadly as a hit man.

Man is not free, unless government is limited.

We have long since discovered that nothing lasts longer than a temporary  government program.

Government tends not to solve problems, but to rearrange them.

It is rather to make government work with us, not over us, to stand by our side, not ride on our back.  Government can and must provide opportunity, not smother it; foster productivity, not stifle it.

Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!

I believe that Communism is another sad, bizarre chapter in human history whose last pages even now are being written.

Always remember that you are Americans, and it is your birthright to dream great dreams in this sweet and blessed land, truly the greatest, freest, strongest nation on earth.

Government is like a baby. An alimentary canal with a big appetite on one end and no responsibility on the other.

How can a President not be an actor?

I have wondered at times what the Ten Commandments would have looked like if Moses had run them through Congress.

While I take inspiration from the past, like most Americans,  I live for the future.

If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.

There is no institution more vital to our nation’s survival, than the American family.

Through love and instruction, discipline, guidance and example, we learn from our mothers and fathers the values that will shape our private lives and our public citizenship.

With our eyes fixed on the future, but recognizing the realities of today… we will achieve our destiny to be a shining city on a hill for all mankind to see.

Don’t let anyone tell you that America’s best days are behind her- that the American spirit has been vanquished.  We’ve seen it triumph too often in our lives to stop believing in it now.
