The Star Spangled Banner

Earlier this week in his weekly devotional, in response to all the negative things going on out there for us to consider, Sir John inspired us with this verse...

Phl 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

In that faithful and productive line of thought, I offer you this word from Kenneth Copeland. He takes us back to when our forefathers were so close to the foundations of our country that they spiritually identified with and lived for what our country really stands for.

Enjoy, and have a blessed weekend and Sabbath!

  1. As a side note, Francis Scott Key was going with the American prisoner exchange broker. There was a dispute over whether the captive was in fact a legitimate prisoner. The Americans convinced the British that he had been captured wrongfully. Therefore the British agreed to release him-but they had to wait until the attack was over lest security be compromised.
    A glimpse into how war was fought then.

  2. Sir J, is there any historical trivia you don't know? Keep it up, I have fun trying to find something you're not read up on. How about the Hebron massacre...did you know of that?

    Sir C, at the tail end of the learning curve :-)

  3. Actually I didn't know about the Hebron massacare at least not by name. I do know that similar events have taken place.

  4. Great read, Sir Chuck. I was very moved by it.

    Sir John, who loves the Stars and Strips and that song.

  5. So was I, Sir John. God bless you, and say hi to Pastor Dan and Commander Dave for me tomorrow....
