LET FREEDOM RING..God Bless the USA


When I was a child, I had a hero here and there...especially those out of 'comic books'...a wonder-world of make believe.
What child has not dreamed of putting on a patriotic suit, slipping into knee-high boots, strapping on magical wristbands and flying off to 'save the nation, save a baby, or beat up on the bad guy' ?!!

As I became and adult I would occasionally drift off into 'la la' land with heroes on TV, or in the theatre.
The grown-up stories written for these 'larger than life' men and women seem 'more real' now because of their dealing with events and situations occurring around the world.
Yes, Jethro is one of my faves indeed!

But I have to remind myself...they ARE NOT REAL
...they are FICTION.
Today, as we celebrate our country's Independence though...it brings up very REAL realities for our family
...for one who is serving
...making a difference for my freedom TODAY.
He IS real...IS one of my heroes
...like Coke, He's THE REAL THING!
We're so proud of Him and pray God's provenience over every step, every decision, guiding him and keeping Him safe, to bring him home!
There's pride in every American heart
and it's time we stand and say:
I'm proud to be an American where at least I know I'm free,
And I won't forget the men who died who gave that right to me,
And I gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today,
'Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land God Bless the U.S.A.

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY, LIEUTENANT!
MAY GOD ESPECIALLY BLESS YOU TODAY!!

Jer. 33:3
"Call to me and I will answer you
and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know."
Blessings,

Inspiring! I love to stand and clap and cheer for those who serve and have served, as we did today at the 4th of July parade in our town when those in uniform passed by.

Thank you, Scoots1mom's The Real Thing, for working to keep freedom for all of us!
