America the Beautiful


“Oh beautiful, for spacious skies…

America! America! God shed His Grace on thee

And crown thy good with brotherhood

From sea to shining sea…”

~Katharine Lee Bates, 1913

Have a wonderful day celebrating and remembering.  The blessings we have are no small thing.  Love, Lisa

Happy Birthday, America!

On this day, in 1776, two hundred and thirty-six years ago, a new nation was born.  It’s name was the United States of America, and it had brave visionary men and women who stood fast to see the new nation come to be.  As far as nations go, America is still a baby country, but she has seen her share of good times and troubles through her two centuries of existence.  I love all the nations of the world, and I love traveling, but America is home, and long may the flag of liberty and justice for all still wave.  And may God bless America, and may we remember from where our blessings in this country come and never take them for granted.  Because God is so good to us.

Have a wonderful day celebrating, wherever you live today.  🙂

Slainte, Lisa
