Happy Independence Day !!!!!!

04 Jul


Do not let anyone claim tribute of American patriotism if they even attempt to remove religion from politics.”-George Washington’s Farewell Address to Nation

“Sure I wave the American flag. Do you know a better flag to wave? Sure I love my country with all her faults. I’m not ashamed of that, never have been, never will be.”
– John Wayne

“We have been assured, Sir, in the Sacred Writings, that ‘except the Lord build the House, they labor in vain that build it.’ I firmly believe this; and I also believe that without his concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better than the Builders of Babel.”
– Benjamin Franklin (From the debates at the Constitutional Convention, June of 1787)

“In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt

“My God! How little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of, and which no other people on earth enjoy!” — Thomas Jefferson

“Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves”. – Abraham Lincoln

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.” — Ronald Reagan

My sincere prayer is that God will continue to bless The United States of America. We must pray that we will return to Him and humble ourselvesΒ under His mighty hand.

Happy Independence Day!

    What a wonderful tribute to our country through these men. Thank you for compiling this. 2 Chronicles 7:14 is so appropriate for our nation. Praise the Lord He has given us a way of reconciliation and restoration. Happy Independence day Levi. God bless you and America.

    If only they were still teaching these truths to our public school children! These kids are truly blessed to be Americans and yet they are being taught just the opposite, in the name of radical, second-wave feminism’s social justice, political correctness and “diversity.” On a side note, guess Gov. Fallin hasn’t vanquished all the bad girls yet. Did you see the problems HHS gave Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-OK) when he tried to enter Ft. Sill (which is in his district!) to check on the unaccompanied kids from Mexico? Hope you and your family have a Happy 4th.

      Hello, yes, I have been keeping tabs on our gov. Bridenstine actually comes to our ice cream social in our little town of Ramona every year. He is quote good. Thank you and you have a nice 4th too. I’m pooped working outside all day. Time to quit. πŸ˜€

    Wonderful timeless quotes. How sad when I just watched a video on FB asking people about July 4th and Independence Day and they couldn’t say why or what they were really partying about. It boggles the mind that the youth are not being taught these things and it does not bode well for the country. Wishing you and yours a safe and happy Independence Day! πŸ™‚

    Let us declare freedom from sin by the grace of God! However, we must first bring ourselves to Him in complete obedience. THAT is the real prayer today…

    Enjoy the day,
