Independance Day...A little on the late side

Yeah, oops. I meant to post this yesterday, but, as you can see, I didn't. And it's not like we had a very busy day, either! We were just having the 4th together as a family and we meant to see fireworks that night, but it began raining and we were too chicken to watch fireworks in the pouring down rain. *Sigh* Life in Washington can sometimes be a trial... :(

However, on a brighter note, I hope you all had a fun Independence Day! What did you do? Where did you go? I hope you all had a fun, but safe (with no injuries), 4th of July! :D


O beautiful for spacious sky's for amber waves of grain.
For purple mountain majesty's above the fruitful plain!
America! America! God shed his grace on Thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea!

O beautiful for pilgrim's feet, whose stern impassioned stress,
A thoroughfare for freedom beat across the wilderness!
America! America! God mend Thine every flaw,
Confirm Thy soul in self control, Thy liberty in law!

O beautiful for heroes proves in liberating strife,
Who more than self their country loved, and mercy more than life!
America, America! May God Thy gold refine,
Till all success be nobleness, and every gain divine!

O beautiful for patriot dream that sees beyond the years,
Thine alabaster cities gleam, undimmed by human tears!
America! America! God shed his grace on Thee,
And  Crown Thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea!

  1. We stayed at home too. :) We did end up watching the fireworks from our windows and went to bed with the nearly constant noise of more going off.

    By the way, I love the new blog look! I think it's about time I redid mine now that I have a computer that works.

  2. Yeah, we would have watched them from our windows, but there are a lot of trees in our area which keeps a lot of things from view.
    Oo! I can't wait to see what you switch to! :)

I LOVE COMMENTS. But be warned, if your comment is impolite, contains swear words, or is disrespectful of God, I will kill it. Just kidding. ;)
(Seriously though...it WILL DIE.)
