I like each and every other year have a TON to be thankful for!
What are you most thankful for this year?
Abraham Lincoln gave the Gettysburg Address…
Four score and seven years ago, our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, concieved in Liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.
But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate — we can not consecrate — we can not hallow — this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
Truer words have not ever been spoken!
GO BUCKS BEAT THE WOLVERINES!!
Our prayers have all been answered. I finally arrived.
The healing that had been delayed has now been realized.
No one’s in a hurry. There’s no schedule to keep.
We’re all enjoying Jesus, just sitting at His feet.
If you could see me now, I’m walking streets of gold.
If you could see me now, I’m standing strong and whole.
If you could see me now, you’d know I’ve seen His face.
If you could see me now, you’d know the pain is erased.
You wouldn’t want me to ever leave this place,
If you could only see me now.
My light and temporary trials have worked out for my good,
To know it brought Him glory when I misunderstood.
Though we’ve had our sorrows, they can never compare.
What Jesus has in store for us, no language can share. (Chorus twice)
You wouldn’t want me to ever leave this perfect place
If you could only see me now
If you could see me now
If you could only see me now
What’s with “THE”?
First of all, it’s pronounced “thee”, not “thuh”.
But, we are often asked, what’s with THE. OK, let’s tell you. Back in 1878, yes 1878, the University was officially designated as The Ohio State University. Before that time, the institution was primarily an agricultural and mechanical college. But the Universities forefathers, in their infinite wisdom, decided that the institution should diversify its educational offerings and become THE flagship University within the State of Ohio. As a matter of fact, in Ohio Law, Section 3335.01, it is stated, and we quote, “the educational institution originally designated as the Ohio agricultural and mechanical college has been known as “The Ohio State University.”
It’s THE home of the largest campus in the United States.
It’s THE home of seven college football National Championships.
It’s THE home of Carmen Ohio and Brutus the Buckeye.
It’s THE home of 102,329 Scarlet and Gray fans on any given Saturday.
It’s THE one. THE only. THE Ohio State University.
