Today is Flag Day. Be sure to fly your flag.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
As you teach their lips to pray,
Teach them always to be true
To the red, the white, and blue;
Praise the Flag from day to day,
Tell the children at your knee
All the joys of liberty.
(Edgar A. Guest)
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord,
Plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give
you hope for the future. Jeremiah 29:11
For well adjusted adults, we should teach our children and
grandchildren to love God, be thankful for our freedom and
respect the symbols of our freedom!
She flies over our nation
With such glory and pride.
She honors the graves
Of those who have died.
She flies over ships
Far out to sea.
She's a symbol of freedom,
For you and for me.
She drapes over the casket
Of brave, fallen women and men,
She goes into battle
Through the thick and the thin.
She wears her colors proudly,
Even, when thrown to the ground.
She's been ripped and been burned
And been tossed all around.
She still flies proud and stately,
So tried and so true,
Our marvelous flag...
The red, white and blue.
