HAPPY INDEPENDANCE DAY TO ALL!


Next to Christmas and Easter, my favorite holiday is Independance Day...it is a time to reflect on what our forefathers went through to get to the point of freedom from England; freedom from dictatorship and freedom to worship as we will, without a goverment telling us what we can and cannot do. From our first president, George Washington (who must have been miserable during that time due to his poor dental condition) to my favorite president; Ronald Reagan. Our country has had it's ups and downs, have been attacked by foreigners many times and yet we have endured. Our future here in the United States (and the world) does not look very bright right now, we are in debt up to our ears, so many people are out of work, and our present government is "giving away the farm." Please pray for our leaders today that they will follow in our forefathers footsteps and keep our country strong, safe, and free. Have a wonderful July 4th to you all!



GOD BLESS AMERICA!

I couldn't have said it better....While "they" are giving away the farm "they" should remember it isn't theirs to give away!!
Have a Wonderful Day!!

Oh, how I pray for leadership in our country. I know, however, that we just don't have it. We are getting deeper and deeper into trouble, in so so many aspects, that I find myself constantly praying for our nation. We still have a wonderful America...it could be so much better with better leadership. I suppose there's always been issues to deal with, tho.
Hoping your 4th is blessed.
