Musings From A Musical Mind

There She Stands

This morning I was reflecting back on past 4th of July’s.  The fireworks, the friends, food and laughter.  The many places we have lived and the many venues where we have participated in fireworks, or just stood by and watched.  We’ve been involved in fireworks stands and 4th of July choir celebrations.  But none is so meaningful as the song featured on this moving video by Michael W. Smith, “There she stands”.

I found this video that someone had made for a Celebration of America at his Trinity Baptist church.  It features three great songs with pictures – but if you can make it all the way through the songs and pictures to the quote by a Franklin D. Roosevelt at the very end – you are stronger and less emotional than I am!  It is very worthwhile watching.  Watch – be blessed and thankful to be an American.

 

Happy 4th!

I heard an excellent message this morning on the Founding Fathers of our great country – including pictures and quotes from the men. It was inspiring, to say the least. These men were ordinary men – but they did extra ordinary things and showed extra ordinary courage in light of declaring freedom. And so inspired – I went about to find a great video to share with you with some of those great things I heard this morning. I trust that we will never forget the price that was paid and those who paved the way for us to be free.

Enjoy and God Bless.
