Happy Independence Day!...

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!
O beautiful for pilgrim feet,
Whose stern impassion’d stress
A thoroughfare for freedom beat
Across the wilderness!
America! America! God mend thine ev’ry flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control,
Thy liberty in law!

Today we thank God for our country. Even more, we are thankful to be citizens of a better Kingdom where Jesus is King and freedom is eternal.
Happy 4th!! We are having family over today and these fun and easy foodie items are already prepared and ready to be eaten. 4th food is fun to make and pretty too!
Fruit skewers...
Flag Salad...
No, we are not preparing and eating this boy.
I just miss his face and wanted you to know that.
Happy 4th of July my sweet Wesley!
Have a wonderful celebration today!

Thanks for putting the lyrics on here for America the Beautiful! I think sometimes these songs are going the way of our old hymns! I didn't realize that verse said "God mend thine every flaw." Wow, just think if we all had that mindset!
