Finishing Well

George Washington lived his life with a focus on serving God & nurturing our nation in its infancy. When you read his writings you see a determination to serve this high calling with every ounce of energy that he could muster.

The hand of Providence had shown itself strong in ways that caused General Washington to fearlessly lead his troops in battle. Never cowering in the face of danger, he raised his sword in front of his troops to inspire them on to do the impossible. Washington not only lived, but also finished well. His final words were, “Tis well.” He had fought a good fight and had exemplified the Christian soldier in his roles as founder and father of our nation.

We have an election coming up in a just a few days that will test our nation in many ways. Proposals to give legal residents, who are not U.S. citizens, the right to vote in local elections are being presented to the voters in some places. This would have been unthinkable just a generation ago. As patriotic Americans, we must defend our Constitution and nation from those who seek to squander it for power and personal gratification.

Let us go and finish well like our nation’s father!

The Winter at Valley Forge

“Our own Country’s Honor, all call upon us for a vigorous and manly exertion, and if we now shamefully fail, we shall become infamous to the whole world. Let us therefore rely upon the goodness of the Cause, and the aid of the supreme Being, in whose hands Victory is, to animate and encourage us to great and noble Actions — The Eyes of all our Countrymen are now upon us, and we shall have their blessings, and praises, if happily we are the instruments of saving them from the Tyranny mediated against them. Let us therefore animate and encourage each other, and show the whole world, that a free man contending for Liberty on his own ground is superior to any slavish mercenary on earth.” George Washington, 1776
