Celebrate AMERICA! Happy 4th of July!

**Update: Tapestry Treasures is standing along side of all Christians and peoples who endured great persecution and undue hardship around the world. As a reflection of God’s Love, this post will remain. Please join in support and prayers.

My Devotional:

2 Corinthians 4:3-4 NLT
[3] If the Good News we preach is hidden behind a veil, it is hidden only from people who are perishing. [4] Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God. …

2 Corinthians 4:15,16,18 NLT

15]And as God’s grace reaches more and more people, there will be great thanksgiving, and God will receive more and more glory.
[16] That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. [18] So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.


God bless our Country and keep us…the land of the FREE and the home of the BRAVE!

O! say can you see, by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there;
O! say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:
'Tis the star-spangled banner, O! long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion,
A home and a country, should leave us no more?
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave,
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

O! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved homes and the war's desolation.
Blest with vict'ry and peace, may the Heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: 'In God is our trust.'
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

America! We Celebrate our National Liberty and Freedom for All

In defiance of all the torture,

the might, and the malice

of the world,

the liberal (free) man will ever be rich;

for God’s providence is his estate,

God’s wisdom and power his defense,

God’s love and favor his reward, and

God’s word his security.


“For the Truth’s sake, which dwelleth

in us, and shall be with us Forever.”

II John 1:2

In Gratitude to our HERO’s – God Bless ~

Our country, however bounded or described—still our country,

to be cherished in all our hearts to be defended by all our hands.

R.C. Winthrop

...”and the dust returns to the ground it came from,

and the spirit returns to God who gave it.”

Ecclesiastes 12:7

Happy 4th of July

Freedom Reign_2015God Bless America.~  My devotion is from Courage and Confidence by Walter Moore.

Aim your rifle.

…this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before. [Philippians 3:13]

Our age is neurotic because we are drawn in so many directions. Money, romance, leisure, power, popularity, pleasant sensations –we want all of them, and we go galloping off in pursuit of them. We end up catching none of them. Like a rifle, life is ineffective unless it is aimed. Paul could say, “This one thing I do,” because he had found one thing worth giving everything for.  To make a Christian commitment is to say, “My whole life shall be focused on one thing: to do the will of Christ.”

~Forgive us, Lord, that we have had so many gods. [Idols of the heart] Give us the peace that comes with complete dedication to Thy will. Amen~

My Prayer:

Yes, Lord, We give tribute in our Nation to those who did take up their rifles for the pursuit of better way of Life and Liberty. We can proudly reflect on the American Way, because of the foundation they forged. May their sacrifice be not in vain as we remember the historical purpose of Freedom and Honor.  Let it remind us to give thanks to your Glory, Father God. Amen
