Hand Me a Sparkler


God bless America, Land that I love! Stand beside her and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above;
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans white with foam,
God bless America,
My home, sweet home.
God Bless Us All! I hope you enjoy your day of freedom. Although, we are all "shackled" with burdens, captive by our own fears, persecuted by our own people for who we are, and see sadness and poverty around us, WE ARE ALL BLESSED to be Americans. I am ashamed somewhat to admit that I am not a potically informed American. I vote. I stand when the flag passes. I get chill bumps when I hear the National Anthemn. I cry at the documentaries when the soldiers come home and it is a happy ending. But, I know that is not always the case. I don't always really take the time to understand the world issues as much as I should. I rely way more on the intelligence and knowlege of people around me for my source of information. I am a military dependent, raised on Air Force bases around the states. I realize the importance of our military troops being trained and ready. I honor those young men and women that leave the security of this land to serve in places that we can NOT even imagine. The fear that must be present in their hearts I can not comprehend. I have not had to ever know what it is like to not live in a free country. I see such ignorance, violence and hatred around me in this world and wonder how long God can face what we have turned this country into. I just pray that my grandchildren will never know anything but freedom. So, whatever your thoughts are on the President and our government and what it's done or hasn't done should not stop you from praying for our leaders everyday. If you don't do it then don't complain about being an American.
Chronicles 7:14: "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble
themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways;
then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal
their land"
SO.....GOD BLESS AMERICA ..................AGAIN.
