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.

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.http://www.janetharllee.net
