Reflections and the Fourth of July



America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea! 

PLEASE play this...if only for a minute...
get in a comfortable chair...
close your eyes...
and just think of all the wonderful things OUR AMERICA means to you...

THIS SONG, by Mr. Charles is my very favorite of ALL time.

It makes me smile, cry, tremble and most of all, it always renews my faith in
AMERICA .


I am wishing all of you a safe, happy and fun 4th of JULY
and I KNOW there will be tons of goood food wherever you are.
HOT DOGS
CHEESEBURGERS
PIZZAS
ummmm.......


 I am also joining a new link party....well, at least it's new to moi.

It's called WEEKEND REFLECTIONS
and you can link your photos of reflections.


This patriotic front porch was at our olden home that we sold last winter...

There's a REFLECTION of part of the porch in the mirror on the wall...
 I had no idea I had captured a REFLECTION of our beautiful flag in the little window.

This REFLECTION in the large dining room window just says
AMERICA
to me. 

 
 I do love THE RED WHITE AND BLUE....
especially when I can EAT it....:>)

I'm also linking with FOODIE FRIDAY
PINK SATURDAY 

HAPPY 4TH....

  8. Your 'reflections' of your former home are something I might expect to see from Hallmark ... but more special, on account I 'know' the photog. :))) Your sunglasses crack me up!
    Have a wonderful Independence Day!

  11. Hi BJ! Thanks for stopping by my place - hope you're enjoying the glorious 4th. We've had storm clouds rain and wind on the South Jersey coast but there is hope for clearing later. Taking joy in all things vintage Americana!
    Joy!

  14. I remember that porch. I think you blogged about the swing when you decorated. If my memory serves me right, you made the cover with a tablecloth and gave instructions. And with things going the way they are now, I think it's going to take more than a song to renew my faith in America. Too much damage has been done in recent years for a song to fix. I think we'll need a new president and a whole bunch of new people in Washington and a country full of people dedicated to prayer. "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14
