Happy 4th of July


Here are some of the lyrics to the song America the Beautiful. 

America! America!
God mend thine every flaw. 
Confirm thy soul in self-control, 
Thy liberty in law. 
 Lift high the cross, unfurl the flag.
May they forever stand
 United in our hearts and hopes: 
God and our native land! 
America! America! 
May God thy love increase 
Till wars are past, and earth at last 
May follow Christ in peace.
I hope all of you, my dear followers, in lands near and far, enjoy a happy and free July.

Amazing how far we've gone from the times when this was written. Beautiful lyrics . . . we live very close to where the parade shooting was yesterday and all of our fireworks and events were cancelled. It made me so sad, especially that this day is now marred forever for those families. Grateful that God is STILL in control in this chaotic world!
