I celebrate our nation's birthday with a short verse.


What do you want for your birthday?
we ask our family and friends.
Perhaps we should ask our nation
before Independence Day ends.
We can give some small gifts to her
for all she has given to us.
Perhaps we can highlight her good points
rather than just sit around and cuss.
I’ll bet she would really like it
if we lived the faith that we claim
showing more love and compassion
instead of all our words of blame.
Maybe we can try to get along
with people who have other views
while working on things in common
bringing about a lot of good news.
We could try to live like Jesus
with forgiveness our primarily goal
caring for the needs of each other
as we help true justice to roll.
Let’s take time out from hot dogs,
swimming, fireworks, parades and flag
and realize we can be humble
while we lift up our voices to brag.

You say things that ought ot be said, Larry. Too many looking for things to find fault with and not enough looking for common ground.

I like this piece very much. Especially the "...try to get along/with people who have other views/" Bringing about good news....that is the key all right. Change the view from bad news to good news and see what happens. Thank you. ~~Diana

It's still the greatest country in the world to live in. If it wasn't for our freedom we wouldn't have so many viewpoints on every subject under the sun like whether or not to celebrate with fireworks when so many parts of the country are so dry. Let's hope that the only fireworks we see in our skies are those of celebrations like this and not battle like Francis Scott Key.

Perils & Promises, Life on Mission by Frances Seymour

Tossed out of one's comfort zone and to the end of the land. You'll enjoy the humourous prose used to descibe life in the down east area of Atlantic, North Carolina--..
