Philippians 4:4-9
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. and the peace of God which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.

Reagan Anyone?

Wondering if anyone realized that February 6th would have been Ronald Reagan's 100th birthday?

Since my one of my wonderful daughters, Danielle, works at the Ronald Reagan Ranch and Gallery, I thought I would give you a glimpse and maybe spur you on to further study of this great man.

This is a picture of one of his favorite Bible verses and a reproduction of his Bible cover.
This large table is all interactive. Danielle was privileged to do a lot of the research that is contained in it. This covers most of his life as a political figure.

The bookshelf in the background is interactive and is a reproduction of his at his ranch.

The table at the left you will see in a couple of pictures.

In the background you see his Jeep Scrambler that he is famous for driving all over his ranch, Rancho del Cielo. Yes, it is in the building. It was lowered in through the roof during renovations.
Here is a picture of his ranch in the foothills of Santa Barbara.

The rock in the foreground is one of the many sensors that were placed all over the property while he was president to help provide discrete security.
Here is the table from the earlier picture. It was used when President Reagan signed the tax overhaul.

Hope some of these pictures inspired you to find out more about President Reagen and maybe make it a part of your home school week in February.

Don't miss the bit about----"Tear down this wall!"

You know the Berlin Wall!

Oh by the way there is a very large piece of the Berlin Wall at the gallery.

Hopefully that was enough of a tease to get you to want to take a trip to Santa Barbara.
