There Your Heart Will Be

February 12th, 2021 | Posted by Sr. Mary Valerie Schneider in Uncategorized

Abraham Lincoln was born on February 12, and since he is my favorite President, I will write about him today, even when leading up to Valentine’s Day with 14 blogs about heart. For Lincoln I chose this quotation from Mark’s gospel: “Wherever your treasure lies, there your heart will be. (12:32). Lincoln’s heart longed for a united nation. Peace was his aim. Even during war he held “malice toward none.” Paraphrasing Scripture, Lincoln advised: “Do good to those who hate you and turn their ill will to friendship.”

Here are a few fun facts about Abraham Lincoln:

He began to wear a beard when Grace Bedell told him that he would look a lot better on the campaign trail, since his face was so thin.

He wrestled 300 times and lost only once.

He hated the nickname “Abe.”
