Happy Fourth of July


Freedom Rings
by Jill Lemming



Starry skies, and moonlit nights,
such beauty in our land...
we're so thankful for these blessings,
that come from God's own hand.

The right to vote, to have a choice,
In a nation proud and strong-
and on this Independence day,
we sing our Freedom Song.



We salute our flag so proudly,
and thank God for the chance to say...
"there's no country we love better,
than the good ol' USA!"

Today we'll gather together,
with our family and our friends...
giving thanks to our Heavenly Father
for the blessings that He sends.



Thank you, Lord, for America,
a place where we can pray...
we give You all the glory,
on this Independence day.

Have a happy and safe fourth of July!

Carrie

Hi Carrie,
I just had to comment on this post even though it's the week after July fourth! That poem is beautiful, and if I were to put my feelings about our country into words, this is what I would want to say! I love how you put it with the cute pictures of your patriotic decorating, too! Everything is so cute! :)
