Yesterday we took down the last of the Christmas decorations and put up red, white and blue. It looks like the 4th of July at my house. I wrote about my feelings during the election season over here and about our trip to Washington DC last year. But today I need to add my voice about how much I love my country.
A few years ago, my neighbor Grandma Terry taught me how to make bracelets. I didn't know anything about jewelry making or beads or whatnot, but she patiently took me under her wing and shared her skills and her time with me. I remember her when I put on certain earrings or see something she made. So today as I'm troubled (sad, shocked, disturbed, etc) by the unrest and protest and division in my country, I'm choosing to be patriotic in small and simple ways.
I love that there are dozens of flags flying throughout my neighborhood on a daily basis, not just today or on holidays, but every single day.
Today we're listening to a lot of patriotic music. Year ago we met Wintley Phipps when Norm emceed a concert in Rexburg, Idaho. I love this song called Heal our Land. His voice is my prayer today.
Thank you for thinking of me. Love your family.ReplyDelete
