Rhon’s Inspiration Station: Happy 4th Of July USA
This week I wish to share something very important with you (thanks Judy for sending), that’s why I brought it along to the Inspiration Station this 4th of July as I think we need to do something just to remind us all why this day is so important. I hope that all my good friends gathered here at the Inspiration Station will be inspired to help our Holy Crusade which starts right now on the 4th of July, doesn’t that just sound so dramatic, don’t you think?
HAPPY 4TH OF JULY 2012
I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG,
OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
AND TO THE REPUBLIC, FOR WHICH IT STANDS
ONE NATION UNDER GOD,
INDIVISIBLE, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL.
*******HAPPY 4TH OF JULY*******
Keep It Lit!! Keep It Lit!
For all of our other military personnel, where ever they may be.
Please Support all of the troops defending our Country.
And God Bless our Military who are protecting our Country for our Freedom.
Thanks to them, and their sacrifices, we can celebrate the 4th of July.
We must never forget who gets the credit for the freedoms we have, of which we should be eternally grateful.
I watched the flag pass by one day.
It fluttered in the breeze.
A young Marine saluted it, and then he stood at ease.
I looked at him in uniform; so young, so tall, so proud.
With hair cut square and eyes alert, he’d stand out in any crowd.
I thought how many men like him had fallen through the years.
How many died on foreign soil;
how many mothers’ tears?
How many pilots’ planes shot down? How many died at sea?
How many foxholes were soldiers’ graves?
NO, FREEDOM ISN’T FREE !
I heard the sound of Taps one night, when everything was still.
I listened to the bugler play and felt a sudden chill.
I wondered just how many times that Taps had meant ‘Amen.’
When a flag had draped a coffin of a brother or a friend.
I thought of all the children, of the mothers and the wives, of fathers, sons and husbands with interrupted lives.
I thought about a graveyard At the bottom of the sea,
and of all the unmarked graves in Arlington .
NO, FREEDOM ISN’T FREE
Enjoy Your Freedom and God Bless Our Troops.
When you receive this, please stop for a moment and say a prayer for our servicemen.
Of all the gifts you could give a U.S. Soldier, prayer is the very best one.

Thanks dear Rhonnie for including that inspired email to your equally inspiring column. I hope everyone had

to stay free and honor God in our own way. IN GOD WE TRUST!! Blessings, Judy Welden
