Today is "Constitution Day"

by Stephanie Abney

On September 17, 1787, thirty-nine of the some of the bravest men the world has seen signed the
U.S. Constitution and forever changed the course of history. I will be eternally grateful for their courage, foresight and their spiritual wisdom.

After the Constitutional Convention in 1787, Alexander Hamilton said, "For my own part, I sincerely esteem it [the Constitution] a system which without the finger of God, never could have been suggested and agreed upon by such a diversity of interests."

There is no doubt the Lord had a hand in the establishment of the Constitution in order to create a country and a government that would be the rich soil for the restoration of His gospel.

These great men, and their wives and their children, paid a tremendous price to give us the liberties that we have enjoyed for so many years. It behooves us each to study the Constitution and live accordingly. May we be worthy of our blessings.

God Bless America!!!

  1. Yes Stephanie and it gave me great joy to see so many in DC and elsewhere come out to show the respect and love they have for their country. Sometimes I wished we had a Captain Moroni to help us through a bad time. But in a way we did with our founding fathers.

  2. How appropriate that you caught the Sept 17th slot, Stephanie. I know how much you love this country and our great Constitution.

    Terri, I saw a "Title of Liberty" banner amidst the coverage of last Saturday's events. Awesome!
