Happy Independence Day, July 4, 2009
Let’s take a few moments for silence and appreciation for all we have in our lives, because those who came before us fought hard that we may live in an independent country.
Here is a prayer to include in your meditation on the 4th of July -
May the glory of Independence DayRemain in mind in heart. May we cherish our hard-won freedom that it never falls apart.Because those who walked before us Believed in freedom’s cause so much We can carry forth a torch Of honor and ‘In God We Trust’.That first Independence Day. Now more than two centuries past Must live forever in our thoughts Never forgotten - never a lapse.It is a precious land we hold In safekeeping for our children That they, as we, may enjoyLives bountiful, worth living.May God’s blessings ever Ring out over all our land. A toast of praise we raise todayAmericans - join hand in hand!
