February 12

Friday, Feb 12

This is the birthday of one of the people I admire most in all of time and eternity–Abraham Lincoln. If I could meet anyone, from any time in history, after Jesus, I would choose Old Abe.

Abe was a man of humor, commitment, and incredible intelligence.

A man of honor, well-acquainted with sorrow, self-educated, and brilliantly talented as a writer. He had a tremendous love for poetry. Most historians would say that Mr. Lincoln’s most outstanding quality, however, was his tenacity.

He did what he believed was right, and he simply would not quit.

Wherever you are, Mr. President, I’m positive it’s a good place. Happy birthday.

(And if you happen to see my dad, please tell him howdy. The two of you have a lot in common.)
