America, America!

"Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord."
(Psalm 33:12)
"Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people." (Proverbs 14:34)
By the way, I wonder what would happen if every American read the Declaration of Independence today?  It REALLY isn't all that long and I found almost every sentence to be thought-provoking and extremely relevant.  Janette posted a copy here.   


  1. God Bless America! Happy Fourth of July Rebecca!
    Love Di ♥

  2. Yes it was very inspiring for me also. I had my fourteen year old set down and read it and I read it again out loud. Good to be to pray to the one who sets the Kings on their earthly thrones.

  3. I did costumes for the play "1776" and in my research, I got to know the Continental Congress, Martha Jefferson & Abigail Adams. There's a song that John Adams sings near the end "Is anybody there? Does anybody care? Does anybody see what I see?" He was talking about the state that England had made of the Coloniest and his heart felt cry for independance. They fought for it, argued over it and came to an agreement and took a stand. The opening song "Sit Down John" is the Cpngress telling John Adams to give up the fight for independance and sit down and be quiet! I must say, I'm glad that he didn't. I'm glad they came to an agreement and took a stand against what they believed was wrong. I pray that "We the people" will do the same. Let our voices be heard, not only in the Town Square, but in the voting booth!

  4. Hope your 4th was great.
    Yes, the words are so inspiring...every one should read them!

  5. I haven't read it in years, so I am going to read it now Rebecca! Hope you have a blessed week!

  6. Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier! It's nice to meet another pumpkin bread lover! =)

    I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July!

    Living for Him, Joan
