God Bless America

July 4th is one of my favorite days of the year. 
As a kid I looked forward to pie and fireworks, but as an adult, I look forward to spending a little time with a 239 year old document. (Psssst...that would be the Declaration of Independence. And the Constitution too, but that didn't come until 1788. *wink*)
We are forever indebted to those brave men and women who gave their lives, fortunes and sacred honor so that we could be free today. I couldn't think of a better way to show my unshakable love for America, than to read what started it all.

Sadly, those rights and freedoms are slipping away from us. But they don't have to. If we become familiar with our Constitution and hold sacred the principles and values our Founders loved, we can make a difference by educating those around us who may not yet understand the vital nature of that document.

I plead with you, if you do any reading this upcoming Fourth of July week, please read the Constitution. Have you ever read it? Has it been a while? Well, now is the time to remedy that! I know you will be so glad you did.

No matter how unpopular it continues to become--to be a Patriot and to love this country, fly the flag or say God Bless America--I can never stop. I read the Declaration and Constitution every July 4th, and every time I do it fills me with gratitude and renewed resolve to do my part--in my own little way--to keep America strong.

I hope you have a wonderful 4th of July next week. 
God Bless America!


  1. Beautiful sentiments, Amber, and what a wonderful way to honor our country and its heroes. Thank you!

    1. Thanks, Tam! I hope you have a great holiday next week!

  2. I whole-heartedly agree with you Amber. My flag is proudly displayed in my upstairs window - my mailbox post is wrapped in a red, white & blue banner. I stand with my hand over my heart at the playing of the National Anthem. And I pray for our military as they stand on the front lines defending our country and our rights. We live free because they fought for it. The LEAST I can do is support them in prayer and respect. God bless America - - for only He can provide the blessing.
