No Matter What Our Country, Our Flag Endures... There She Stands...


Happy 4th of July -- we truly are BLESSED nation. A blessing to humbly acknowledge and not take for granted. We have so much more than so many nations, but arrogance and/or turning from the Creator can & will quickly be a step toward the removal of His hand on us. 

May God truly bless the USA - not necessarily in wealth or power even -- but in Godliness, humility, charity and grace. 
With those, all other needs surely follow and are filled.

As always, Michael W. Smith captures a sentiment in song like no other - enjoy...

How beautifully said and how poignant.
I concur 300% about God's hand being removed-we must come back to Him and recognize who truly is responsible for our great nation.
Well Done Ruth, Happy Fourth of July, cheers!
