Spiritual Sundays ~ Independence Day

Jesus and the 4th of July

The stars and stripes spell freedom

She waves upon the breeze

While bursts of colors can be seen

Above the towering trees.

This is all quite wonderful

We revel in delight

But God above in divine love

Has brought this day to light.

With just a stroke of liberty

A touch of His great hand

He gave democracy to us

And helped this country stand.

The stripes upon our stately flag

Were touched by His sweet grace

Each star of white that shines so bright

Reflects His loving face.

So as you turn to face the flag

For battles that were fought

Be filled with pride for those who died

And freedoms that were bought.

But don’t forget to thank the One

That gives the bright display

The reason why we paint the sky

On Independence Day

written by Marilyn Ferguson.

I pray everyone has a blessed 4th of July ! Remembering those who are serving and sacrificing for Our Freedom ~ those who have served or even those that are getting ready to serve ~ We thank you all ~ YOU and Your families!
