July 4th

In June 1776- representatives from the 13 colonies fought  for their freedom- a freedom that would declare them free from Great Britain.
Frances Scott Key- a lawyer witnessed a miracle in 1776- After numerous attacks- the American Flag stood- this event inspired him to write the Star Spangled Banner........
                                                        The Star Spangled Banner
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 starts, thro' the perilous fight, o'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming, and the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air, gave proof thro' 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.

Freedom is not free.... Many lost their lives for our freedom. Celebrate them and "One Nation under God"

Our land can be healed through Jesus Christ-    Humble yourselves
                                                                        Seek Jesus
                                                                        Turn from wicked ways
    "It will be then that we will hear from heaven, and our land will be healed".

Pray for your country today
