July 4th, 1776 is the birthday of the United States of America!

In June 1779, during the Revolutionary War, General George Washington (later the first President of the United States) penned this private prayer: "And now, Almighty Father, if it is Thy holy will that we shall obtain a place and a name among the nations of the earth, grant that we may be enabled to show our gratitude for Thy goodness by our endeavors to fear and obey Thee. Bless us with Thy wisdom in our counsels, success in battle, and let all our victories be tempered with humanity. Endow, also, our enemies with enlightened minds, that they become sensible of their injustice, and willing to restore our liberty and peace. Grant the petition of Thy servant, for the sake of Him whom Thou hast called Thy beloved Son; nevertheless, not my will, but Thine be done."

“And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage:” (Galatians 2:4)


Our leaders must have fear of God and respect for the individual freedoms of their fellow men.

Two thousand years ago,

all of humanity faced the judgment of God,

had sinned and were responsible 

for their wrong actions.

God could have condemned and destroyed the world,

but when we were at our worst, Jesus gave His life to save us.

God gave us love rather than a lecture!

Happy Birthday America (Song)


Happy birthday America

It's the Fourth of July

I get to wake up in your freedom

But sometimes I wonder why

Seems like everybody's pissin'

On the red, white and blue

Happy birthday America

Whatever's left of you

[Verse 1]

You were the darlin' when you saved the world

WW I and II

France would just be part of Germany now

If it hadn't been for you


[Verse 2]

Now your children wanna turn you in

To something other than yourself

They burn your flag in their city streets

More than anybody else


Happy birthday America

It's the Fourth of July

I get to wake up in your freedom

But sometimes I wonder why

Seems like everybody's pissin'

On the red, white and blue

Happy birthday America

Whatever's left of you

[Verse 3]

Who they gonna count on

When you're not there to take their call?

Will the world keep right on spinnin'

Without the greatest of them all?

Without the helping hand of God

Your days are numbered, my old friend

We're sure gonna miss you, girl

You were the best that's ever been

Happy birthday America


All the broken-down cities

By the left's design

And the right can't seem to get it right

Most of the time

Every time I go to town and vote

I just come home with the blues

The lesser of two evils

All we ever get to choose



Happy birthday America

It's the Fourth of July

I'll get to wake up in your freedom

But sometimes I wonder why

Seems like everybody's pissin'

On the red, white and blue

Happy birthday America

Whatever's left of you

Happy birthday America

"I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness"

(Jeremiah 31:3)

"Greater love has no one than this, that someone lays down his life for his friends"

I love you.

You are mine.


Your name is written upon My heart.

Your prayers are precious to Me.


Your life is in My hands.


I am always with you.


I am nearer to you than your own heart.


I gave My life so that you might live forever with Me.


All I ask in return is your love. Be My Valentine.


~ Jesus Christ

God's Valentine Gift


God's Valentine gift of love to us

Was not a bunch of flowers;

It wasn't candy, or a book

To while away the hours.


His gift was to become a man,

So He could freely give

His sacrificial love for us,

So you and I could live.


He gave us sweet salvation, and

Instruction, good and true--

To love our friends and enemies

And love our Savior, too.


So as we give our Valentines,

Let's thank our Lord and King;

The reason we have love to give

Is that He gave everything.

~ By Joanna Fuchs

Valentine Divine

When Jesus Christ decided to

Give us a Valentine,

He followed His Father's orders--

The task God did assign.


He gave Himself, His life, His all,

For this special Valentine,

Knowing He would change the world;

Real love He'd redefine.


It's sacrifice we need to give

To a beloved Valentine;

When we do that, we get a glimpse

Of the holy and divine.


Oh Lord, please help us be like you,

With every Valentine.

When we love each other as You did,

It's then that we're really Thine.

~ By Joanna Fuchs

What is a Mother?


A mother is someone to shelter and guide us,

To love us, whatever we do,

With a warm understanding and infinite patience,

And wonderful gentleness, too.


How often a mother means swift reassurance

In soothing our small, childish fears,

How tenderly mothers watch over their children

And treasure them all through the years.


The hearth of a mother is full of forgiveness

For any mistake, big or small,

And generous always in helping her family

Whose needs she has placed above all.


A mother can utter a word of compassion

And make all our cares fall away,

She can brighten a home with the sound of her laughter

And make life delightful and gay.


A mother possesses incredible wisdom

And wonderful insight and skill-

In each human heart is that one special


Which only a mother can fill!

A Child


"Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it"

(Proverbs 22:6)

I took a piece of plastic clay

And idly fashioned it one day;

And as my fingers pressed it still

It bent and yielded to my will.

I came again when days were past

The bit of clay was hard at last;

My early impress still it bore

And I could change it nevermore.


You take a piece of living clay

And gently form it day by day;

Molding with your power and art

A young child's soft, yielding heart.

Coming again when years are gone,

It is an adult you look upon.

Your early impress still is borne

And you can change it nevermore!


— A.J. Smith

A ​Tribute To All Mothers

A mother is someone you can always look up to no matter how tall you grow.

In God's Image

God made mothers in his image,

He molded every part,

He gave a little extra

When he made a mother's heart.


He knew when he made mothers

to give an ​extra share

of love and understanding,

and a heart that really cares


He gave them a special smile

as if kissed by the golden sun,

He put a twinkle in their eye,

and then He said well done.


But when He made you, Mother

You were the greatest one by far

and I wouldn't change a single thing

for you're perfect the way you are.


— Carolyn "Banker" Harris

Tecumseh, Oklahoma

Any woman can be a mother but it takes someone special to be a mommy.

Importance of Human Life - Take my hand... not my life


1. There's a preacher and wife who are very, very, poor. They already have 14 kids. Now she finds out she's pregnant with number 15. They're living in tremendous poverty. Considering their poverty and the excessive world population, would you consider recommending she get an abortion?

2. The father is sick with syphilis, the mother has TB. They have four children. The first is blind, the second is dead, the third is deaf, and the fourth has TB. She finds she's pregnant again. Given the extreme situation, would you consider recommending abortion?

3. A white man raped a 13-year-old black girl, and she got pregnant. If you were her parents, would you consider recommending abortion?

4. A teenage girl is pregnant. She's not married. Her fiancé is not the father of the baby, and he's very upset. Would you consider recommending abortion?

In the first case, you have killed John Wesley, one of the great evangelists in the 19th century.

In the second case, you have killed Beethoven.

In the third case, you have killed Ethel Waters, the great black gospel singer.

If you said yes to the fourth case, you have just declared the murder of Jesus Christ!!

The Bible in the Home

It is told of the mother of a family whose husband was an unbeliever and openly jested at religion that she nevertheless succeeded in bringing all her children up in the fear of the Lord.

When she was asked how she managed this, she said: "Because to the authority of a father I did not oppose the authority of a mother, but that of God. From their earliest years, my children have always seen the Bible on my table. This Holy Book has constituted the whole of their religious instruction. I was silent that I might allow it to speak. Did they propose a question, did they commit any fault, did they perform any good action--I opened the Bible, and the Bible answered, reproved, or encouraged them. The constant reading of the Scriptures alone has wrought the prodigy which surprises you."

Mom Gives 150%

No one deserves a special day all to herself more than today's Mom. A cartoon showed a psychologist talking to his patient: "Let's see," he said, "You spend 50 percent of your energy on your job, 50 percent on your husband, and 50 percent on your children. I think I see your problem."

A Teacher and His Students

A teacher gave her class of second graders a lesson on the magnet and what it does. The next day in a written test, she included this question: "My full name has six letters. The first one is m. I pick up things. What am I?" When the test papers were turned in, the teacher was astonished to find that almost 50 percent of the students answered the question with the word "Mother."


Quarreling between her two sons prompted the mother to rush to the kitchen. Eight-year-old Bobby and four-year-old Jackie were having a tug of war with the cookie jar. Only one cookie remained in the jar, and each boy thought it was his. Taking the cookie jar from the two youngsters, their mother calmly announced. "I'll solve the problem for you. I'll eat the last cookie myself." The boys looked up at their mother in unbelief. Then the four-year-old, with a mischievous grin on his face, said, "Oh, no, you won't, Mom. Whoever heard of a selfish mother?"

M + O + M = LOVE


A teacher put this question to little John in the arithmetic class. "John, suppose your mother made a peach pie, and there were 10 of you at the table... your mother and father and eight children... how much of the pie would you get?"

"A ninth, Ma'am," was the prompt answer. "No, John. Now pay attention," said the teacher. "There are 10 of you. Ten, remember. Don't you know your fractions?" "Yes, Ma'am," was the swift replay of little John, "I know my fractions, but I know my mother, too. She'd say that she didn't want any pie."

Mothers, your unselfishness makes an impression on the little ones.

Little Johnny And His Mother

Little Johnny watched, fascinated, as his mother gently rubbed cold cream on her face.

"Why are you rubbing cold cream on your face, Mommy?" he asked.

"To make myself beautiful," said his mother.

A few minutes later, she began removing the cream with a tissue.

"What's the matter?" asked Little Johnny. "Giving up?"

Make sure you express your appreciation for your mother

in thought and deed not only on Mother's Day, but every day.

Priest, Theologian, Author and Composer, Martin Luther always testified that much of the blessing of his life

President Ronald Reagan said, "From my mother, I learned the value of prayer, how to have dreams and believe they could come true."


Dear Mothers, Do you want to leave a legacy of faith? Then


Whether they are young or grown, a mother has a powerful influence on the beliefs of her children.

Always remind your offspring that God's still alive in Mama's house!

Have A Blessed Mother’s Day!

so that we could have a mansion when we die.

A gift offered to you does not become yours until you receive it. So it is with salvation. 

Faith is the empty hand that reaches out to receive God's gift of life. 

It is the personal appropriation of His offer.

It is believing in your heart that Christ's suffering and death were for your sins; 

that His resurrection from among the dead was for your justification. It is making THE BEST GIFT yours!

Will YOU accept HIM NOW? Take Him by faith as your very own Saviour, and you will find Him

to be the best gift you have ever received.

"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

Not of works, lest any man should boast"
