As I wake up in the morning my street will be lined with our American Flags . . .
Because today is a celebration . . .
It’s our Country’s Birthday
A few days ago at our church service I had the privilege to once again stand and sing our National Athem. As we were half way through the song, my son looked up to see tears rolling down my cheeks. He quietly asked if I were ok. I whispered back that I was just overwhelmed with gratitude for what this song represents, a land of the brave, a land of the free.
I truly love everything this broad stripes and bright stars banner (Flag) represents for and to me and I’m waving and raising it proudly today.
On my front porch . . .
With my homemade flag, hanging on my door . . .
Flags placed in pots . . .
A wooden flag placed on the chair . . .
Red, white, and blue flowers planted in pots . . .
Even ‘Betty’ is dressed for the celebration.
And what will I be wearing?
Well most likely this star spangled t-shirt . . .
Paired with some denim capri’s and a vest
maybe with a summer skirt and fun flats
I just might borrow my hat from ‘Betty’ and stick with all cream and a denim vest.
What I do know is that I will be proudly waving a flag . . .
And being ever so grateful for all it represents.
