My prayer:

As I arise today,
may the strength of God pilot me,
the power of God uphold me,
the wisdom of God guide me.
May the eye of God look before me,
the ear of God hear me,
the word of God speak for me.
May the hand of God protect me,
the way of God lie before me,
the shield of God defend me,
the host of God save me.
May Christ shield me today.

Christ with me, Christ before me,
Christ behind me,
Christ in me, Christ beneath me,
Christ above me,
Christ on my right, Christ on my left,
Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit,
Christ when I stand,
Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.

Our trip to Springfield IL

On our way through Springfield, IL we stopped to see Abraham Lincolns home (this is the most famous view of his home!)
Although is was really cold it was fun! We walked down his street with wooden sidewalks and gravel roads. Us four younger kids got to be Jr rangers for the day.

We got a tour of Lincolns home and got to see his bedroom and where his boys played. This was the only house he owned.

We went in to the tomb of Abraham Lincoln where his family (3 sons and Mary his wife) are buried except for his son Robert. There were flags from all the states at the time of his presidency.

Here we are in the front of the house. Mary Todd his wife never returned to the house after he died once the funeral was done.

Lincolns home looked a LOT different then our home it had VERY BRIGHT carpet & wall paper because it was the "style"

We also went to New Salem, a small town were A.Lincoln first worked:)
Abraham Lincoln was an honest man with a very hard job to do. He did a great thing giving all people their freedom!
