Two kids from Illinois found
each other and the White House
I’ve been reading a little book on President Reagan.
It arrived from Tremendous Life Books the other day.
The timing was great as it was Reagan’s 100th birthday.
It’s “The Great Communicator” by Greg Rothman.
Reagan had a firm belief that God had a plan for him.
He missed out on a job in a sporting goods department.
That led to a chance to broadcast Chicago Cubs games.
That took him to California for spring training.
An agent arranged a screen test and 7-year contract.
He became The Gipper in “Knute Rockne, All American”. His first wife’s public affair ended their marriage.
She also won custody of their two children.
He felt like the two-time loser of all time.
Then he met Nancy Davis, another kid from Illinois.
Both were interested in politics - and each other.
He made three runs for the Presidency.
He didn’t give up. The third time was the charm.
Four years of double digit everything paved the way.
Reagan brought new hope to Americans.
Without him, we might still be in a Cold War.
Like you, he had his share of disappointments in life.
He did not let them stop him. God had a plan for him.
God has a plan for all of us. Listen and watch.
That plan is working right now, wherever you are.
You, too, have great purposes in life.
