Happy Birthday America!!

Happy Birthday

Happy Independence Day
Sweet Friends,

Hope you have a great time
celebrating our Great Nation,
What it was,  the good things 
that still are, and what we
Pray it will be in the future!

America, America
God Shed His Grace on Thee
and Crown Thy Good 
with Brotherhood
 from Sea to Shining Sea!

Love that song, 
and remember singing it and
all sorts of Patriotic songs especially
when I was in the 5th grade....we had
a teacher who loved our country and
had us sing Patriotic songs every
morning after we said the pledge
of Alligance to the Flag.

 I thank
the Lord for that teacher and his
fervent Patriotism I think he taught
all his students the same, at least
this one

Have a Really Blessed Day!

Dearest Nellie, I hope that you celebrated the 4th in style. We celebrated your National holiday by attending a Show game of Ice Hockey between USA and Canada. Ice Hockey is not a huge sport here in Oz, and the teams were here promoting it. It was lots of fun, and we even got to sing the Star Spangled Banner (which we only know from watching!). We live in uncertain times, and we should all be united in prayer and celebration, don't you think? Much Love, Mimi xxx

Austrailian citizen............
