Our Flag Flying Proudly One Nation Under God

God Bless Our Republic
I pledge allegiance to the Flag
of the United States of America,
and to the Republic, for which it stands;
one nation UNDER GOD,
with liberty and justice for all.
Prayers going up
Hand over heart & prayers up! *Hugs*
Although I try not to be shocked by the things I see these days, I was caught off-balance by the message on the womans T-shirt as she walked past me in the mall. The bold letters declared: Hope Is For Suckers. Certainly, being naïve or gullible can be foolish and dangerous. Disappointment and heartache can be the tragic offspring of unfounded optimism. But not allowing oneself to have hope is a sad and cynical way to view life.
Biblical hope is unique; its a confident trust in God and what He is doing in the world and in our lives. Thats something everyone needs! The writer to the Hebrews clearly stated the importance of hope when he wrote, Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful (Heb. 10:23).
Having biblical hope is not foolish, because it has a strong foundation. We hold fast to the hope we have received in Christ because our God is faithful. He can be trusted with anything and everything we will ever faceboth for today and forever. Our hope is grounded in the trustworthy character of the God who loves us with an everlasting love. So, the T-shirt had it wrong. Hope is not for suckers; its for you and for me!
Read: Hebrews 10:19-25

So many songs - so few Terabytes.
Where were you on Thursday, March 23, 1967? I was in my freshman year at a small engineering college in Philadelphia, in ROTC, and DJ and Music Director at that colleges radio station. I had no idea that college radio would lead to something absolutely astounding in a Top 20 market just five years away, and my biggest concern was how Vietnam was going and whether it would still be going on in 1971 when I graduated. (I was in a five year program.) So lets cue the Rockumentary theme!
This song was a hit for the Shirelles in 1959, and its really not all that great a song, at least not in the Shirelles hands. Lou Adler turned it into a work of art with Michelle Phillips on lead vocals. It came in at #10.
Love the spring theme Cindy Sue & hope you are seeing some loverly spring temps! *Hugs*
Some classical and pseudo-classical coming up for Easter weekend next week.
Hiya Janie & your tag makes me giggle every time I read it! :)
A good week for you? Special plans for the weekend? *Hugs*

Feeling any better this evening? Getting some much needed rest? *Hugs*
Just moved to Germany with my AF hubby...to be there for 3 years. We missed a lot of stuff....hijackings to Cuba, riots on college campuses, the death of Robert Kennedy.
We were actually nervous about coming home when the tour was up. :)
Good memories otherwise, though...and good music! :)
It's Tunes For Our Troops!
Thank you! Sometimes it’s hard to keep up and time just zooms by! :)
I like the idea of the Canteen DJ’s coming back with where they were on that date. Good thinking!
ROFL! I hear ya Drumbo & sorry I missed your birthday!
I have an external drive down I really have to see if I can get it fixed at least to transfer.
Hope you had a positive week! *Hugs*
I am looking forward to it!
Andrew Lloyd-Weber and Gustav Mahler.
Love the theme!
Where were you at 12:01 AM August 1, 1981?
Hiya M/L....muscles recovered from the shoveling?:) *Hugs*
Living in La Crescenta, California. Probably asleep, even though it was technically early Saturday morning.
Ed Ames had been part of the Ames Brothers in the Fifties, and he was now acting on Fess Parkers Daniel Boone series on NBC as an Indian due to his high cheekbones. But he never gave up his singing. This came in at #9.
Listen to his breath control as he paces himself on that high A at the end.
Well, maybe I was watching MTV? LOL
Yes...I had to google that stuff! ;-}
Hint - It was sort of a special morning.
NOT watching MTV! LOL! Yeah...I cheated. :)
Good evening, Publius, and thanks for Rachmaninov’s Star Spangled Banner. ((HUGS))
Ah, MTV. I didn’t get cable in my building until 1983.
This month has been crazy & March is a BIG month for b-days!
Did you do anything special for yourself?
Must have been a surreal experiance...a great tune.
Much appreciation mountainlion to your Brother for his service!
You are doing well this evening? *Hugs*
