Posted by in Commemoration/Celebration | June 29, 2015

Every day, but especially the 4th of July, is good day to remember

Who has provided us with Life, Liberty, & the Pursuit of Happiness

(see Declaration of Independence):

Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD;

and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.

The LORD looks from heaven;

he beholds all the sons of men.

From the place of his habitation he looks upon all the inhabitants of the earth.

He fashions their hearts alike; he considers all their works.

There is no king saved by the multitude of an host:

a mighty man is not delivered by much strength.

An horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength.

Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him,

upon them that hope in his mercy;

To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.

Our soul waits for the LORD: he is our help and our shield.

For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.

Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.

(Psa 33:12-22)
