By GOD's Grace
I descend from a long line of Patriots,
Men AND Women who served as far back as WWI.
In my possession is 
a very old small blue
 New Testament that went to War with each
 man, and was signed by each one in turn,  as they served.
I fight for my Nation from my knees
through Prayer! 
I support the Troops as much as possible financially also.
I stand to attention
when I see my flag!

 America, The Great

Grandmother took a job to make ends meet
Times were severe, supplies were dear
And there was rarely enough to eat.

She replaced a man who was called to War
To go defend, along with friends
Belgium’s cold and embattled shore.

She proudly stood for hours on end
Wielding the torch, she kept on the porch
As she served with the other women.

On the hardest day she grabbed her head:
Two officers emerged, and everyone heard
That Matilda’s sons were... dead.

Taking courage from the flags though quite unnerved
Simple pine boxes to rest, she had done her best
To mark their lives and the Country they had served.










She hung both flags daily saluting their fate
For she knew that her sons, just babies with guns
Were two of the “men” to make America, The Great.

FREE, INDEED











I stand solidly on this sacred ground
Remembering the Brave Heart's deeds
Recalling images and explosive sounds
That I...  may be free, indeed.

I hear the cries of the wounded -
Rent flesh, sordid bodies, left behind to bleed
Until the life in them lies outside, in a pool
And yet I...  am free, indeed.

I see the path of fear cross each face
But Valor is the greater need:
They call upon their Last Reserve
For they, too... are free, indeed.

To say that history repeats itself
Is like planting an immutable seed
Or, to agree with King Solomon
that there is nothing new under the sun
When you are truly...  free, indeed!


Therefore, if the Son [of God] sets you free
you will be free, indeed.      St. John 8:36

Living Stars

Dear Lord,

Oh how I love Your army on earth,
Made up of these women and men
Those whom You've raised-up fearlessly,
To defend us again... and again.

My thoughts are always with them,
They take the lead in my prayer
As often as I'm able
I imagine being there...

To salute them and to praise them,
To love them without hinder
To tell them they exemplify
The flag that they serve under.

Oh Lord, that somehow I could change
The people's cold and callous hearts
Of those who simply won't concede
That The Troops are its Living Stars!










I cry out to You in an earnest plea
To turn the evil tides of this war:
Restore the dignity and celebration
Which America bestowed upon them... before!

The Body houses the Soul. The Soul houses the mind, the will, and the emotions, intellect, etc. [i.e. the image of a living God]. Our ability to think, choose, and react, is the first - and most-powerful - tool, ever given to Man. This ability has taken us from a garden, to a cave, to the moon! Yet, somehow, the truth of how it came to pass, has been lost, as mankind teeters on the edge of annihilation. May we all return to the Garden for a glimpse...then think of the future, choose to incorporate the whole man, and react accordingly.... ergo, collaboration.













~ For my brother, David, a great mind and leader. ~


... Ergo, Collaboration


Rocking on my heels
Considering the situation,
With unwavering rhythm
...I choose, collaboration.

Hands locked safely in position
A new freedom in my stance,
I am seriously convicted
Life is a surreal dance.

Caught inside this moment
Wind gathers [I can't hear it]
Exhaled, and lost into Space
...comes body, comes spirit.

Suddenly, I am sure I comprehend
This incredibly intricate process
My mind is whirling like a hell-bent top
Producing its familiar synopsis:

The only hope for Mankind now
Is to come to terms with his Creator,
Anything less is unacceptable
...come denier, come debater.

For the sake of another century
For the sake of future generations,
Can we not now - as one - agree?
To Body AND Soul...ergo, collaboration.

CELEBRATING 243 YEARS OF BLESSINGS 
FROM ALMIGHTY GOD

He Alone is the Healer of our Land: Let us confess the sins of our Nation, and fervently seek GOD's forgiveness and protection.

"If My people - 
those of you 
who are called by My name
 [after My Son/Christ - ians] 
will humble themselves
 [bow to My will and give Me total authority over your lives]
AND pray 
[cry out to Me!]
AND seek My face
 [ ask for My presence!] 
AND turn from your wicked ways 
[renounce your sins]
[NOT those of the world, NOT the UN-believers - 
but those of you called by MY name!] 
THEN
 [AND ONLY THEN]
will I hear YOU from Heaven
AND forgive YOUR sins
AND heal YOUR land!"

Thus saith the LORD 
in 2 Chronicles 7:14

We who are called by His name have 
sacred duty to intercede for our Country!


May Father GOD be merciful to the 
United States of America!

For where
 the Spirit of the LORD exists..
THERE, 
is found 
Freedom.

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY, BELOVED!

Be safe and blessed 
in your travel
and all your
celebrations!
