Happy Fourth of July!


 Happy Independence Day!!!

I hope your holiday weekend is wonderful! We will be celebrating with our family tomorrow with a traditional Fourth of July meal - hamburgers, hotdogs, potato salad, and apple pie!!    

Amidst all of family, fun and fireworks, may we pause to remember how blessed we are to live in the land of the free and the home of the brave!!! 

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

While the storm clouds gather far across the sea
Let us swear allegiance to a land that's free
Let us all be grateful for a land so fair
As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer
God bless America, land that I love
Stand behind her and guide her
Through the night with a light from above
From the mountains, to the prairies
To the oceans white with foam
God bless America
My home sweet home

God Bless America!!
