President Carter

President Jimmy Carter will be 85 on October 1st.  If you wish to send him a birthday note you can do so here

When I look at him and his life I can’t help but feel ashamed at the selfish life I have lived.  After he left the White House he could have retired and lived the rest of his days in comfort anywhere he wanted.  Instead he rolled up his sleeves and continued the work he started when he was President.  He continued to pursue world peace, the elimination of poverty, suffering and disease, fair elections and so much more.  His work with Habitat for Humanity alone is more than most Presidents have contributed to the world post office and yet this is only a small part of what he has done.

Lord, I ask you to bless President Carter and to turn my shame into a true desire to make a positive difference in the world. Also, that you would give me the strength and means to act on that desire while remaining humble so that your name is glorified; that others would see the example set by President Carter and would also turn to you. I ask this in the name of your son, Jesus Christ.
Amen
