Remember....



O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!

America! America!
God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

O beautiful for pilgrim feet
Whose stern impassion'd stress
A thoroughfare for freedom beat
Across the wilderness.

America! America!
God mend thine ev'ry flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control,
Thy liberty in law.

O beautiful for heroes prov'd
In liberating strife,
Who more than self their country loved,
And mercy more than life.

America!America!
May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness,
And ev'ry gain divine.

O beautiful for patriot dream
That sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam
Undimmed by human tears.

America! America!
God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea.



...and while celebrating with family and friends,
please prayerfully remember those who are not.










For those of you who choose to serve our country, please accept our heart felt thanks!

Hi Roxanne. I do custom make charms, but I have no idea which ones you were looking at. Just e-mail me with any questions or requests: angelahenrie@hotmail.com

Hi Roxanne
How lucky am I that you found my blog! I would be honored to have you follow it and will make sure I send you a note when my bird pillows are complete. Also, you and your husband look WAY to young to have kids in their "20"'s. I can't wait to head home next week to Texas! I miss Texas BBQ! All my best and let's stay in touch!

Hi Roxanne,

Our art class started out as an art class but now it has turned into more of a painting with friends time. My friend, Jo Ann Evans, who lives close to ACU and works there, taught it. It's at her house. We'd love to have you join us! It's at 6 p.m. on Thursdays.
