My Father’s Pride

“America, my Father’s pride.

Oh, how he loved to serve by your side.

Fathers, Sons, and Daughters too,

Laid their lives down to fight for you.

If truth be told, they’d tell you so,

If called to arms, they’d willingly go.

The proud, the strong, integrity bound,

In serving you,

America was found.”

Picture captured of my Dad back in the 70’s. Enlisting at a very early age, he was proud to serve in as a GI Joe in WWII in Germany. After the war he enlisted in the Navy and finished as a Sgt Major in the National Guard.

He taught me to love our Country, our history and never forget the price paid for freedom. This daughter is proud of my Father’s pride.

Happy 4th of July!

God Bless America!

Boardwalk Strides

“Summer days,

I count each one.

Lots of time for play and fun.

Morning cool,

Afternoons of pool.

Evening tides,

Boardwalk strides.

Umbrella’s flapping in the sun,

Goodbye to June,

Your “season’s” done.

Hello July!

Light up the sky!!”

“You own the day, You own the night;

You put stars and sun in place.

You laid the four corners of earth,

Shaped the seasons of summer and winter.”

Proverbs 74:16-17 (The Message)

Happy Fourth of July!!
