God Bless America … Let Freedom Reign!

Freedom wall in Murrieta, California

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!

 

Jesus is Risen!

Calla Lilies - 1

Jesus died for our sins, according to the Scriptures, He was buried;
He was raised
on the third day, according to the Scriptures …
Where, O death, is your victory?
Where, O death, is your sting? 1 Corinthians 15

May the reality of the amazing love of Jesus penetrate your very being as you contemplate the death of Jesus on the cross as He took the sins of the world upon Himself and His victorious resurrection three days later. All for you.

Wishing you great joy and love.
