Happy Independence Day America by Teresa Mathews


Many years ago under God’s watchful eye
America was founded by the sacrifice of those who weren’t afraid to die.

The men that wrote the constitution wanted this to be
A country where people could worship God and be free.

This country called America that flies the red, white and blue
Was founded on Religious Freedom for me and for you.

Many have tried to destroy her, from inside and without,
But God has protected her through the years of this there’s no doubt.

Every day that goes by we should say a prayer,
To keep the freedom to worship God in churches everywhere.

Pray that we can keep our freedom to proudly stand and say
“ONE NATION UNDER GOD...." in this beautiful USA!

  2. Happy and safe 4th of July to all of you--from all of us at OWG! A warm and lovely tribute to this great country we live in, TERESA!

    1. DIANA thanks!! Hope you get to go to the BBQ today. We were going to see THE LONE RANGER but Carlton had to go into work so I guess I won't be going.

  3. A wonderful poem TERESA, and I'm with you on that last verse!! Hope you all have a blessed day celebrating your Independence Day! x

  5. Lovely, Teresa! Thanks for sharing your gift of poetry with us!

    1. Hi CARRIE thank you, so glad to see you on here. I hope you are feeling better!

  6. I hope that everyone had a fun, relaxing & safe Fourth of July. Ours was pretty laid back and quite, because "It was a Rainy Day in Georgia..." and many of the fireworks displays were either canceled or postponed. I'm hoping to possibly see some somewhere this weekend--it just didn't seem like the fourth without them.
