Celebrating the Fourth of July


Freedom's natal day is here. 
Fire the guns and shout for freedom, 
See the flag above unfurled!
Hail the stars and stripes forever, 
Dearest flag in all the world. 


 ~Florence A. Jones



Some inspiring quotes to ponder:

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, The people He has chosen as His own inheritance. Psalm 22:12

This, then, is the state of the union: free and restless, growing and full of hope. So it was in the beginning. So it shall always be, while God is willing, and we are strong enough to keep the faith. ~Lyndon B. Johnson 

This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave. ~Elmer Davis

In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved. ~Franklin D. Roosevelt

It is the love of country that has lighted and that keeps glowing the holy fire of patriotism. ~J. Horace McFarland

Liberty is always dangerous, but it is the safest thing we have. ~Harry Emerson Fosdick

My patriotic heart beats red, white, and blue. ~Author Unknown
