On The Red, White and Blue

Everyone knows
just where I stand
on the red, white and blue
symbol of our land.

I have shared my thoughts
when they’re asked of me
on “In God We Trust”and
“My Country ‘Tis of Thee”

The pledge of allengiance
it should be made clear
is recited by all
who choose to live here

Give our flag the honor
and respect it commands
as the symbol of freedom
that governs these lands

With life and liberty
come opportunities
not separate laws and
closed communities

Jesus said we must all
“Love one another”
not viciously kill
our sister or brother

When I hear those words
“Oh say can you see,”
I’m proud to sing
“My Country ‘Tis of Thee!”

God bless America!

“I pledge allegiance
to the flag
of the United States of America
and to the Republic
for which it stands,
One nation
under God
indivisible
with liberty 
and justice
for all.”

In Honor Of July 4th; via A Friend and Fellow Blogger

Freedom certainly isn’t free –  God Bless Our Military Men and Women Serving Our Country Under Very Difficult Circumstances! And God Bless America!
 

 

I HOPE THERE ISN’T ANYONE ON  MY E-MAIL LIST THAT WON’T KEEP THIS GOING.
Happy 4th of  July!….

Let’ s get this started now,
So it will be out there on the fourth!

 
I  PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE

FLAG,
OF THE

UNITED
STATES OF AMERICA
 ,AND TO THE REPUBLIC, FOR
WHICH  IT STANDS,


ONE
NATION UNDER  GOD
,
  
INDIVISIBLE,
 
WITH   
LIBERTY
AND JUSTICE  FOR ALL!  
KEEP IT LIT!!

 

KEEP IT  LIT! 
For  all of our other military personnel, where ever they may  be.
 
Please
Support all of the troops  defending our Country. 

And God  Bless our Military


who are protecting our Country for our  Freedom.
Thanks to them, and their sacrifices, we can celebrate  the 4th of July. 
 

We must never  forget who gets the credit for the freedoms we  have,

 
of which we  should be eternally grateful.

I watched the  flag pass by one day.
It fluttered in the  breeze.

A young Marine  saluted it,
And then he stood at ease. 

I  looked at him in uniform;
so young, so tall, so proud.
With hair cut square and eyes alert,
he’d stand out in any  crowd.

 

 I thought how many  men like him
had fallen through the years.
How many  died on foreign soil;
how many mothers’ tears?  

How many pilots’  planes shot down?
How many died at sea?
How many  foxholes were soldiers’ graves?
No, freedom isn’t free.  

 I heard the sound  of Taps one night,
when everything was still.
I  listened to the bugler play
And felt a sudden chill.

I  wondered just how many times
That Taps had meant  ‘Amen.’

 
When a  flag had draped a coffin
of a brother or a friend.

I thought of  all the children,
of the mothers and the wives,
of  fathers, sons and husbands
With interrupted  lives.


I thought about a  graveyard
At the bottom of the sea.
 
Of unmarked graves in   
Arlington .
No, freedom isn’t free.  

Enjoy Your  Freedom


and  
God Bless Our Troops.
When you receive this,


please stop for a moment
and say a prayer for our  servicemen.


Of all the gifts you could give  a 
U.S. Soldier, prayer is the very best  one.
MAY GOD BLESS AMERICA
AND MAY AMERICA BLESS GOD!!

Thank you Len for sending this to me, and yes I will keep it going!!  God bless you, America and her troops!!!

Fwd: Shock to NBC This Morning – Sent By My Mother

   
 
  
I’llbet this was asurprise toNBC….

 NBC POLL

<ATT00052.jpg>

Do you believe

that the word

God should

stay in

American

culture?  

NBC this

morning had a

poll on this

question. They

had the

highest Number

of responses

that they have

ever had for

one of their

polls, and the

Percentage was

the same as

this:  

86% to keep the

words, IN God

We Trust and

God in the

Pledge of

Allegiance  

14% against  

That is a

pretty

‘commanding’

public

response.  

I was asked to send

this on if I

agreed or delete

if I didn’t .. 

Now it is your

turn.  It is

said that 86% of

Americans

believe the

word God

should

stay…….  

Therefore, I

have a very

hard time

understanding

why there is

such a mess

about having

‘In God We

Trust’ on our

money and

having God in

the Pledge of

Allegiance. 

Why is the

world catering

to this 14%?  

AMEN! 

If you agree,

pass this on , if not,

simply delete.  

In God We

Trust

 
 
   

This is  the day the  LORD has  made.  I will  rejoice and be glad in it.

The New Pledge of Allegiance

 

From an e-mial I received:

BY A 15 yr. OLD SCHOOL KID 
who got an A+ for this entry 
(TOTALLY AWESOME)!  
Since the Pledge of Allegiance  
And  
The Lord’s Prayer  
Are not allowed in most  
Public schools anymore  
Because the word ‘God‘ is mentioned…..  
A kid in Arizona wrote the attached  
NEW School prayer:  

 
 
“New Pledge of Allegiance” 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 
Now I sit me down in school  
Where praying is against the rule  
For this great nation under God  
Finds mention of Him very odd.  

If scripture now the class recites,  
It violates the Bill of Rights.  
And anytime my head I bow  
Becomes a Federal matter now. 
  
Our hair can be purple, orange or green,  
That’s no offense; it’s a freedom scene..  
The law is specific, the law is precise.  
Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.  

For praying in a public hall  
Might offend someone with no faith at all..  
In silence alone we must meditate,  
God’s name is prohibited by the state.  

We’re allowed to cuss and dress like freaks,  
And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks…  
They’ve outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible.  
To quote the Good Book makes me liable. 

We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,  
And the ‘unwed daddy,’ our Senior King.  
It’s ‘inappropriate’ to teach right from wrong,  
We’re taught that such ‘judgments’ do not belong..  

We can get our condoms and birth controls,  
Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles
..  
But the Ten Commandments are not allowed,  
No word of God must reach this crowd.  


It’s scary here I must confess,  
When chaos reigns the school’s a mess.  
So, Lord, this silent plea I make:  
Should I be shot; My soul please take!  
Amen  
  
If you aren’t ashamed to do this,  Please pass this on..  
Jesus said,  ‘If you are ashamed of me,  I will be ashamed of you before my Father.’  

~~~~~~~~~~~AWESOME~~~~~~~~~~
 
Not ashamed. Pass this on.

 

Always remember that Jesus died for us because He loves us!

Unashamedly,
Teresa Marie
