Oh, say can you hear that this wonderful time of the year is a celebration for all we hold dear and why we are here... enjoying it with loved ones near and in prayerful spirit with those away with many serving in harm's way for each of us and our blessed USA on this special holiday.
So, remember that all the glimmering lights, glorious sounds, faithful thoughts, and other joyous sites that make this time very meaningful for you in the land of Old Glory's red, white, and blue could have only been for the brave women and men who made it so many years ago and who have continued to bestow our priceless American freedoms to do so.
And none more than to express our love to a divine God above whether in silence or for all to hear and see as we each believe.
"Holiday Blessings" ... is a heartfelt reminder about the importance of the December holiday season to many Americans ... relative to each one's respective faith ... with special thoughts ... for all who have answered the call to defend ... the precious freedom and rights endowed through our beloved country's constitution ... that only came to be through the noble efforts of Her founding fathers ... after America's victorious fight for independence! And may She always remain... One Nation Under God!
Special thanks to ... American artist Jack Dawson for his approval to use images of his inspiring paintings... Memories Worth Repeating, The Blessing Of Christmas, Hope Avenue, Heart of a Warrior, and Celebrate Freedom. You can see them and his other paintings by clicking on his name.
