It is the small simple things of life that bring us peace.

Happy July 4th!

While the storm clouds gather far across the sea,
Let us swear allegiance to a land that's free,
Let us all be grateful for a land so fair,
As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer.
God bless America,
Land that I love.
Stand beside her, and guide her
Through the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam
God bless America, My home sweet home
God bless America, My home sweet home
God Bless America was composed by Irving Berlin in 1918 and revised in 1938; Kate Smith is usually associated with this song as it was her signature song.  There are any number of her recordings, but I wanted to share this one.  Please enjoy and this 4th remember to be very thankful for our freedom and our great nation, under God!
