Our Flag

_Our Flag

Our Flag is a glorious ensign,
Our Nation in epitome;
Its red...our blood,
Its stars...our world,
Its blue...our loyalty!

It is the Mayflower Compact;
It is Washington at Valley Forge'
Declaration of Independence
From the rule of tyrannical scourge;
It is Lawrence aboard the Chesapeake;
Calling, "Men, don't give up the ship!"
And Macarthur's grave, "I shall return!"
Stout heart, proud mien, and firm lip.
It is Eisenhower winning a beachhead;
And doughboys longing for home;
It is Flander's Fields with white crosses spread;
And Old Glory over Capitol dome!

To the strains of the Star-Spangled Banner
Loyal hearts of all fifty states
Swell with pride as they sing of the splendor
And valor this epic relates.
But it is more than an emblazoned emblem,
Or poem of our Land's history;
It is a prayer for continued freedom,
And prophetic of what we can be!

Our Flag is our great Constitution;
It is Lincoln's Gettysburg speech;
A brilliant banner of freedom
To sing, pray, worship, and preach
Of God's Son, our Blessed Redeemer,
Who died for us on the Cross
That we might know Him as Savior
From sin and of all of its dross.

Now, with this liberty threatened,
We must keep faith with our flag;
Give our best to God and our country
And never let our interest lag.
We must pledge to it new allegiance,
The Republic too, and then stand
One Nation under God, indivisible,
With justice for all in the land.

Our Flag is far more than a bunting,
This poem, and prayer, prophecy...
Is a Nation led of Almighty God,
America, Land of the Free!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Just got time to check out your blog and am so happy I did. It's great! Especially like your break down of how easy it is to start getting supplies with just a few dollars a week. I have friends that just say "oh it costs too much to since I'm on such a tight budget". I think they are thinking too fancy. They don't realize a bag of simple beans and rice would go a long way. I keep working on them....Keep up the good work!

OP you are so right to keep at your friends.... There are many on a "tight budget" but I see them stop at Star Bucks everyday. Take their children to McDonalds for breakfast almost everyday and are sitting in the nail salon every week getting their nails manicured, not to mention the Pizza Delivery boy stops at their house once or twice a week. With all of that waste for 1 week, I could prep a family of four for 1 month or longer.
