Check out my son's last couple of entries: he's spent two days this week at former President Jimmy Carter's home, and I believe he came away with the same impressions of the man that Cliff and I got, three years ago (by the way, our son is on the right, if you had any doubts).
You see, Cliff and I went to Church at Maranatha Baptist Church some time back, and sat in the Sunday School class taught by Jimmy Carter. We came away believing this man is genuine. He might be wrong, but I'll guarantee you he does what he believes is right. If there was ever a sincere Christian and a good-hearted man, it's Jimmy Carter. And yes, folks, I am Republican. I don't agree with Mr. Carter's latest book.
But I love and respect the man.
I do hate the fact that Cliff and I were both so fat in that picture, and I'd love to convince Cliff to make the trip down there one more time... just so we'd have our skinny selves pictured with a former president before he dies. He's no spring chicken, you know. (By the way, am I the only one who thinks Jimmy looks younger now than he did three years ago?)
