Mariah Jewell’s birthday. It’s a national celebration! Or should be!
Happy birthday Mariah, firstborn, beautiful and kind, bright and witty.
Today in history
In addition to Mariah’s birth in Evansville, Indiana, on this day in history Alexander Graham Bell patents the telephone in 1876. At 29, Bell receives a patent for his revolutionary new invention–the telephone. (Unlike today’s phones, the primary purpose of this device was to make and receive phone calls). The Scottish-born Bell worked in London with his father, Melville Bell, who developed Visible Speech, a written system used to teach speaking to the deaf.
Scripture of the Day
Psalm 25:9 He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way.
