This is the MOST comfortable rocking chair in the world and there is a great story to this birthday present from Reverend Franklin Graham and here it is:
In the 1960’s, Reverend Franklin Graham’s Father, Reverend Billy Graham, visited President Lyndon Johnson at his Texas ranch. While the two men were talking, they sat in this unique hand made rocker and Reverend Billy Graham commented that this was the most comfortable rocker he ever sat in.
Not long afterwards, a pick up truck showed up at Reverend Billy Graham’s home in Montreat, North Carolina with two of these rockers. President Johnson gave him two rockers. Those rockers are still on Reverend Billy Graham’s porch today and have a special meaning for the Graham family.
Well…a few months ago my husband and I went to Reverend Billy Graham’s house with Franklin…I spotted the rocking chairs on the porch and quickly dropped myself into one. I then commented how comfortable it is. It is so remarkable how comfortable it is!
Today….the arrival of my chair, a birthday gift from Reverend Franklin Graham. It is a GREAT rocking chair…and of course, the history as well as the person who gave it to me make it all the more special.
