The First Lady's Prayer


Melania recited the Lord's prayer yesterday at a Trump rally. To me, it was an unexpected moment, something we don't always see at political events these days. It brought a smile to my face. I appreciated that she did that. It meant a lot to me.

  1. It showed her tender heart along with her promise to be true to herself as First Lady regardless of opposition. It blessed me as much as watching her at the church prayer time after the inauguration and how she stood in respect for the song, How Great Thou Art. I truly believe she and the president want God to bless their work and our great nation.

  2. Yes, yes, yes!! What a precious moment that was. I pray for our First Lady and our President and his family every day. May God protect, guide and bless them as they serve our nation with dignity and grace. Amen.

  11. Hi Sandi,
    the lovely thing is that those words spoken by the whosever will not return to God void, and will speak to many people - whether to plant, to water or to add the increase. Praise the Lord!

  14. Hi Sandi, I am glad you posted about this. Right now I’m trying to be a good citizen and support the Office of President of the United States. Looking back over the decades of my life’s experience I think Americans have gotten off track somewhere down the line when we elected a President, and then, we did not support the majorities’ choice. Not only did we not support them, but we worked against them. Along the way I believe this rift has increased and resulted in the “great divide” people talk about when politics in America is the topic. I do believe it will be difficult for anyone, in any party, to bring the country together today. So, I’m going to try to be supportive as much as I can, which may require me to open-up my mind a little bit and re-evaluate certain situations. Now, as far as Melania is concerned, I believe she wanted to be First Lady as much as I would like to be First Gentleman if my wife should have been elected POTUS. It would not be something I would want. Big smile. The way Melania is behaving does make me proud of her. I did not know, until I read your post, that she recited the Lord’s Prayer at a rally, but God bless her for doing that. We ALL need that, don’t we? Thank you, Sandi, for your blog posts and for your kind comments on mine. By the way, you asked if that was a house on the first postcard in my last post. Yes, it is, and the artist painted the same scene in other seasons which clearly show the house. I will post some of those cards in the future.

    1. Thanks for your comment, John!

      I can not imagine being the focus of attention like the First Lady. She strikes me as a private person, so I think you are probably right! :) I would be the same way.

      I am hopeful about our future. I think...I hope... as things change over the years we will find a way to come together.

  15. Sandi, I feel as you do, and I thought it was heartwarming. She seems genuinely kind. I'm so impressed with her staying in New York until the school year ends. I'm very happy to see that the majority of the comments here are positive. We do need to come together as a nation and build each other up. Hugs, Nancy
