Happy Independence Day

we enjoyed our day of celebrating, but best of all was that daddy was home all day!
Hailey said, "I miss daddy when he works, I wish he could stay home all the time"
 We sang this song in church on Sunday & I have been singing it around the house since then 
My country tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing.
Land where my fathers died!
Land of the Pilgrim's pride!
From every mountain side,
Let freedom ring!

Our Pastor then penned these words to take the place of the last 2 stanzas and I couldn't agree more 

"This nation turned from Thee, And has found misery, as our reward
We need Thy Word and grace, Flowing in every place,
Our lives Thy truth embrace, We need Thee Lord."

"Lord please rebuild this land, Work now thru Thy strong hand, Thy banner raise.
Cause us to hear Thy voice, May Thy truth guide our choice,
Our hearts again rejoice, Thy name we praise."

  1. I love your pastor's'er truer words.

    Avelyn says the same thing when Matt's at work. I know I certainly miss having him around.
