What It's About

Welcome to my blog! I ruminate on random thoughts rattling around in my brain. Subjects range from reality TV to current events and everything in between. Whether you agree with me or not, I welcome your comments. God gave you the ability to think for yourself, and this country was founded based on the right to have your own opinion. Who am I to question that? Hope you enjoy! And, if you like to shop on the internet, or have always wanted to try, please feel free to click on one of the banners on the left.

Happy Birthday, USA!!!

Happy birthday, America!!!

Hard to imagine the thoughts that were going through the minds of our Founding Fathers back in 1776. We were the first colony that had a chance of seceding from the British Empire. But, they still had to be worrying about a lot of things: Will we succeed? Will we fail? What happens if we fail? Maybe even scarier, what will happen if we win? I certainly thank God they had the courage to strike out on their own.

The Declaration of Independence ranks up there as one of the greatest secular documents ever written. Right up there with the Magna Carta and our own Constitution. If you've never read it, think you should. A lot of men and women have sacrificed everything to make sure we will always have the "right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." If they are willing to do that, feel like I should at least take the time to read what inspired us to become our own nation. As always, many thanks to our veterans and their families!

It would have been difficult for our Founding Fathers to imagine just how great our country has turned out. Yeah, we've got our problems. Many may never be solved completely. But, there are still people doing everything they can to come join us. Must be doing something right.

Hope you have fun this weekend. Enjoy the fireworks, eat good food, and enjoy your beverage of choice. Pray for our soldiers everywhere, especially those in harm's way. Most importantly, be sure to thank God you have the opportunity to live in the greatest nation in the world!

May God bless you, and God bless the United States of America!!!!
