In God We Trust

Happy Independence Day!

Dotse and I wish for you and your family a most enjoyable and safe Independence Day.

Today, thousands of brave young men and women are placing their lives on the line to defend and protect the freedoms we cherish in this great nation. On this special day, let's unite our hearts in a prayer of thanksgiving for those freedoms and for the safety and mission success of our armed forces, especially in Iraq and Afghanistan.

I hope this link stirs within your heart a new appreciation for the faith of this nation's founding fathers and other great leaders in our past. What a great heritage they have provided us.

"Righteousness exalts a nation,
but sin is a disgrace to any people."
(Proverbs 14:34 NIV)

Our leaders in the past had it right!
