Blessing America–Imperfections and All!

by Joan C Webb on July 4, 2012

Happy Birthday, USA!  

Often my husband (a veteran of the U.S. Army) is asked to sing “God Bless America” at gatherings. Just last week he sang this song at the funeral of our friend Dean who served many years as a loyal FBI agent. Dean loved his country.

I love America, too. Although I acknowledge her imperfections. Like many others I pray for God to bless, protect, and work through the people within her boundaries. Will you join me today in singing these words (either aloud or silently)?

God bless America. Land that I love. 

Stand beside her, and guide her

Through 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.

I’m celebrating July 4th, 2012 in Arizona, but I snapped these photos while visiting in California,  Colorado and throughout Arizona.

I’m wondering: WHERE ARE YOU CELEBRATING AMERICA’S BIRTHDAY TODAY?

 Wishing you a fun, safe and memorable holiday from my family to yours!

Joan, honey– I sense a true kindred sister in this post. :) I enjoyed my visit to your place today. (I’m one of Greg’s authors who has been meaning to scoot around and visit his other clients since I signed with him.) Glad I made it by your place.Blessings~

Hi Shellie! Thanks for dropping by my online home! How fun that you did a tour of Greg’s clients’ places. It would be fun to meet face-to-face. And share our “kindred” spirit. (I visited your site, too! Thanks for the chuckles.)
Relief-blessings to you today,
Joan
