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.
To the oceans, white with foam
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?
