The 4th of July is a time each year that reminds us of how fortunate we are to live in this great county.... America!  Our church has a FABULOUS Patriotic Sunday service each year at the end of June that gives tribute to our Armed Forces and thanks to God for our freedom and our country.  The theme this year was "The Torch is Passed".  This got us to thinking of how patriotism starts in our lives.  I remember saying "The Pledge of Allegiance" in school each day along with singing a patriotic song or two.  "America the Beautiful," "The Star Spangled Banner," "Yankee Doodle," "America ~ My Country 'tis of Thee"... I remember learning what these songs stood for and feeling proud as a young child.  Which got me to thinking... Do our children feel the same way?  This has sparked some interesting conversation around our dinner table! 

So - for this year, we challenge you to "pass the torch" of patriotism and that pride in our country on to your children and those you love! 

Hope you had a Happy Independence Day!

The Star Spangled Banner

Lyrics By Francis Scott Key - 1814  
Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:
'Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion,
A home and a country should leave us no more!
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!



America, The Beautiful

Lyrics by Katharine Lee Bates - 1913  
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!

O beautiful for heroes proved In liberating strife,
Who more than self their country loved,
And mercy more than life!
America! America! May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness,
And ev'ry gain divine!

O Beautiful for patriot dream
That sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam,
Undimmed by human tears!
America! America! God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

My daughter had a doctor's appointment last week in a building where we never had been and we were running a little late. We walked into the building and were greeted at the elevator by the Doctor's office logo and name along with the number of the office. Once up to the correct floor, we were easily directed to the correct suite with more signage.

Upon finding what we thought was the correct office, we entered to find yet another terrific lobby sign to let us know that we were in the right place. The doctor had used wonderful signage to lead his patients easily and correctly to the right place. We were able to make our appointment with just a minute to spare due to being able to find the office quickly and easily!
