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