An American flag had seen better days, It had become battered and worn by the weather for over almost two years. It was our own personal flag. Like our nation it faced a time of isolation for a long time. The elements took their toll on Old Glory and she became shredded and worn. It was time to retire this relic and start fresh.
We purchased a new flag this spring and it seemed quite fitting that the time coincided with our freedom from fear of a world wide pandemic. Today as we celebrate our nation’s founding, let’s never forget the symbolism of our American flag. We have been through a very short history as a nation and yet we have overcome battle after battle. We’ve endured tragedies suffered because of war. Wars of many kinds have invaded America’s shores and fields of grain. The majestic mountains remain. The climate may be changing, but God never does.
As we pray for our country, let’s keep our unity in tact. We are one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. Our flag may have been replaced because of the physical damage done to it, but our God never changes. He will live forever.
GOD BLESS AMERICA!
As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension.
I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog.
I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ.
My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

With a resounding “amen” I add my appreciation for Old Glory and what she stands for. And hear another going up for a God who never changes.
