About the Approach of Independence Day

Sunday, June 17, 2012

A friend gave me a used Bible and on the back page I found a lovely recitation. You don't have to be religious or political to know that America and the world is in big trouble. This is entitled "God Bless America" (authorship is not claimed)

Heavenly Father,
You are the real foundation of nations,
raising them up to serve and care
for the people dwelling in their boundaries.

I thank you for making me
a citizen of this land
of freedom and unlimited opportunity--
these United States.

Send forth your Spirit to this country
and make it a source of wisdom and strength,
order and integrity throughout the world.

    The United States of America was built by believers and is the greatest nation in the world. I've been to many countries and this is the only place I want to live. God has truly blessed us and now we need his protection.

    Great blog!
