Bless the Lord, O My Soul!
Lovingkindness and truth have met together;
Righteousness and peace have kissed each other. Psalm 85:10
From winged artists’ palettes to fragrant nectar, from heavenly light and color displays to rolling hills and flatlands, our Father’s artistry and character shine forth as righteousness and peace kiss each other and spill onto the earth and all its inhabitants. May your Thanksgiving be filled with abundant delights as you meditate on the blessings our Lord has bestowed upon you.

Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD,
the people whom He has chosen as His heritage! Psalm 33:12
The United States of America was bought with the blood of our colonial soldiers and the protection of God Almighty, and it is preserved by the blood of our American men and women soldiers and the prayers of Christians. Freedom is hard won.
Thank you to our military members, veterans, and their families for the sacrifices that they have made, both apparent and those that are unspoken.
Thank you to our Father in heaven. Oh, LORD, You promised that if Your people who are called by Your name will humble ourselves, pray and seek Your face, and turn from our wicked ways, You will hear, forgive, and heal our land. LORD, hear, forgive, and heal our land; return America to You.
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
2 Corinthians 3:17
Let freedom reign!
“We do not know one promise these men made, one pledge they gave, one word they spoke; but we do know they summed up and perfected, by one supreme act, the highest virtues of men and citizens. For love of country they accepted death, and thus resolved all doubts, and made immortal their patriotism and their virtue.”
