Celebrate Freedom!

Daddy was a technical sergeant in WWII 'n knew first hand tha' price that was paid for freedom. He said that servin' his country was his duty. Daddy 'n Mamma were married while he was servi'n over seas, but their great faith in God kept 'em strong. Daddy never talk'd 'bout tha' war much 'cause he said it made it to real.

He was a patriotic man. He loved God, his family, his country, 'n his flag. Daddy proudly displayed his flag on a flg pole in his front yard. He loved ta' sit at tha' kitchen table, sip his coffee, 'n watch his flag wave bravely in tha' breeze.

Edger Guest poem
Lord let me not in service lag.
Let me be worthy of our flag.
Let me remember when I'm tired,
The sons heroic who have died.

In freedom's name and in my way,
Teach me to be as brave as they.
In all I am, in all I do,
Unto our flag I would be true.

                                                        For God and country let me stand,
                                                     Unstained of soul, clean of hand.
                                                        Teach me to serve and guard and love,
                                                     The starry flag that flies above.

Freedom is never free, there is always a price. Many men 'n women sacrified their lives for us ta' live in freedom. Our country has been blessed!

"Blessed (happy) is the nation whose God is the Lord, The people He has chosen as His own inheritance."  Psalm 33:12

God blesses a nation whose worth 'n allegiance is ta' Him; a nation that is prayerful; a purposeful nation; a praisin' nation.

"The Lord looks from heaven; He sees all the sons of men from the place of His dwelling He looks on all the inhabitants of the earth; He fashions their hearts individually; He considers all their works." Psalm33:13-15
Freedom for Christians is knowin' Jesus Christ. He set us free when he died on tha' cross.  Christians are soldiers for Christ. Just like solders fightin' a war, we endure hardships 'n escape entanglements. The only way we can arm ourselfs for tha' fight is to put on tha' armor of God.

"Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles (tricks,schemes) of the devil." Ephesians 6:11

Lord, thank ya' for blessin' America. Thank ya' for tha' men 'n women who sacrificed for our freedoms, 'n I pray for those who are currently servin' to help keep our flag wavin' in tha' breeze." In tha' name of Jesus, amen.

  1. We are truly blessed because of those who sacrificed so much for our Nation. : )

  2. As I watched the Military channel last night (It's vet's week) You really don't know the fowl up's that they faced and survived. Most ask "why me when trouble comes their way" they were asking why me when the friends were falling all around them " Why me why did I make it?" They desrve all the honor they can get. People are always against war , but sometimes the we must stand up for our country or be run over and imprisoned in camps ourselves.

  3. Hello Mitsy Lou ( or is it Janet LOL )

    I am always torn apart about what the Lord wants concerning the military. On the one hand, I wouldn't want fanatics to come and wipe us out in North America, on the other hand, I remember the movie "The Mission" where the priest accepted his fate at the hand.


  4. Hi Janet,
    I really like this: Freedom is never free, there is always a price. Many men 'n women sacrified their lives for us ta' live in freedom. Our country has been blessed!
    I like it in the sense that it should remind everybody what price way paid for us to enjoy the freedom which we have now.
    On the other hand it is contradictory because it is only with sacrificing people's lives are we able to enjoy the freedom we have. Strange but true.

  5. Though my dad didn't see battle; he was in the Army for four years. He was getting on the plane to go to war but his orders were changed. Many of my other family members had served also - and have heard a few stories about their service. I lost a great-uncle on the USS Wasp - So I do know that freedom is not free but I do appreciate all veterans and current service members for all the sacrifices. thank you for sharing this to remind me.
