Happy 4th of July --- GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!


This Land We Love


How beautiful this land we love,
We cherish all good people of
With pride we call this home our own
Oh how our seed of freedoms grown.
American is what we are
Our time has nurtured us so far,
For truth and justice we do strive
Our laws are meant to not deprive.
We know we’re not the perfect place,
As we are of the human race.
In God we trust along our way,
His goodness near, both night and day.
So please do stop and pray awhile
Ask help in facing each new mile.
And now I’ll end with words so clear
Concerning freedom we hold dear
Let Grateful Thought –
Well Deep Inside
For Soldiers Brave –
Our Country’s Pride

This was lovely...the poem and the graphic. I noticed that you're from Alabama. My husband is from No. Alabama, Florence. I'm from CA but we lived there for 3 years until just recently -- have moved to So. CA. He hates it here, but love makes many sacrifices and I'm thankful. I did love AL. It was beautiful and the people were just so southern and wonderful. I made many friends. I love your page!

Hi Martha! Like you, I've been busy in the garden and my real job. I'm just loving everything you've painted since I caught up with you this morning. The psaltery is beautiful! And the pears too! If you were an itinerant painter, I'd have you stay here for awhile and let you go to town on some of my old pieces! ;-) You've got the magic touch!
I've missed visiting with you! I think summer is just such a busy time for so many of us with the extra outside chores.
Happy painting and gardening to you !
Diane :-)

Hi Martha, just getting caught up with many of my blogger friends. Summer time is such a busy time for many, and for us with our campground the summer is just about as busy as can get. But we love it when business is booming! The kids are home for the summer, so I am entertaining them, was just out shopping for new bathing suits. Got some nice ones on sale! :-) Anyway, just wanted to say hello and I hope that your 4th of July was a great one. ciao for now, Debby
