Celebrating Our Independence





"God Bless America"
Words and music by Irving Berlin






"God bless America,

















Land that I love.

















Stand beside her and guide her





















Thru the night with a light from above.



















From the mountains, to the prairies,





To the oceans, white with foam
God bless America, My home sweet home."
God has blessed America. We are a free nation thanks to all of those who gave their lives for our freedom and those who continue to be on the front lines to preserve our freedom. May we never forget.

As always, I thoroughly enjoyed viewing your Uncle's pictures. They are all beautiful, but I think my favorite is the clouds in the sky with the little bit of red showing through. Perfect for today.

I hope you have a great day today.

Hi Judy! Happy 4th of July to you! I love the way you paired your uncles wonderful photographs with the words to God Bless America. What a lovely reflection, indeed!

We celebrated with Brianna's family last night and had a wonderful time. The city fireworks we had planned to watch tonight have been postponed due to heavy rain. We don't mind. We're enjoying having a quiet night at home and will look forward to seeing them tomorrow. = ) Hope you're having a wonderful time with friends and family!

Blessings to you!
Tracy
