Independence Day

This may seem like a strange tribute for Independence Day, but while we are celebrating our country's independence with picnics and fireworks let us not forget that there are men and women overseas still fighting to protect our freedom and the freedom of others.

Dear Lord,

There's a young man or woman far from home,
called to serve their nation in time of war;
sent to defend our freedom on some distant foreign shore.
We pray You keep them safe,
we pray You keep them strong,
we pray You send them safely home,
for they've been away so long.
Bless those who await their safe return
and those who mourn the lost.
Bless those who serve this country well,
no matter what the cost.

God bless America and her heros!
