July 4th, 2015

Today marks the 239th birthday of our great nation.
Many of us are spending the day with family and friends. Anne and Darvin are in San Antonio with JoAnn and Wayne and they may well spend it with others in the family. At our house David, Sharon, Wayne, Beth, Shauna, Eddy and Olivia are to come for hamburgers .Wish Mike and Reeda could join us from Texarkana but they couldn't.
Leland put up the American Flag and it is beautiful..I grabbed my camera to get a picture of it waving in the small breeze but when I tried to snap one the breeze slacked off. I could only think that as I looked at it limp how it must feel the way people are burning it, walking on it and treating it with no respect. This is not what our young men and women fought and died for. The ones that have lived through these wars and did make it home deserve our love and honor as much as the ones who died, because they were out there fighting and willing to lay down their lives for this great country.
On a personal note Ione, JoAnn and I lost our brother at sea and Leland's brother died in France. Our hearts go out to the familes who get the call that their loved one has died. May we all say a prayer that we will always be able to see our FLAG wave freely over our great nation.

Proverbs 14:34
Righteousness exhalts a nation,
but sin is a reproach to any people.
