America The Beautiful

Happy Independence Day, from our home to yours.

fourth2013

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!
America! America!
May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness,
And ev’ry gain divine.
O beautiful for patriot dream
That sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam
Undimmed by human tears.
America! America!
God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea.

  1. This day, this photo, and the patriotic lyrics are enough to make me, on self-imposed computer vacation, to pop in and wish you and your family a joyous 4th. Miss you.

    1. I totally didn’t expect to hear from you Catherine, until Labor Day. Thanks for the kind words. You are sorely missed here too. Hope summer life in the ‘Dacks is going well.
