Happy 4th Of July!

In honor of the 4th of July I'd like to share a few of my favorite things with you.....

One of my favorite renditions of the Pledge of Allegiance is by John Wayne........




Another favorite that I would like share with you is The Title of Liberty, which may be new to most. It is well worth the listen. You will not be disappointed......





Barry Hansen is one of our locals here and the awesome field of flags--Liberty Field--is right here in Idaho Falls where I live. I had the great pleasure of attending the sunrise flag ceremony this year on Memorial day and helping along with everyone else to unfurl the giant US Flag as it was raised along with the Title of Liberty Flag.

Here's a close up of what the Title of Liberty Flag looks like.......





May we all remember our wonderful freedoms and from Whom all blessings flow in this great nation of ours. Have a happy and safe 4th of July!

Red Skelton has a wonderful rendition of the Pledge too. We were watching "The Story of Us" on the History Channel last night with our kids and someone (can't remember who) said, "The best thing about this country is our belief in Family, Faith and the Flag." How true! Exactly what I'm trying to teach our children that you can't live life without God, you can't live it without each other and you can't live it without our freedoms given to us by our fore fathers. I wish all of the US citizens would see it in such simple terms.
