The 4th of July is always special at my house. Yes, we celebrate our country and yes we do it proudly BUT the 4th is also the day we celebrate the birth of our daughter. Happy Birthday sweetie…WE LOVE YOU.
Regardless of how you feel about the incoming president Donald Trump, i invite all of you to say a prayer of blessing to our new President. There are more things in life that binds us than divides us!
Lord, I ask you that you always keep our country safe and strong. I pray lord that your WILL be done and that we continue to strive to keep you first in our lives. In the name of Jesus, I pray for blessings for President Trump and his administration. I pray for everyone that will be attending the inauguration today.
I pray also for our senators, the men and women of congress, our judges, and state officials. I pray lord for wisdom and foresight in the job they have to do.
Finally, I pray for the next generation of Americans. I pray lord that they have a heart that seeks you and a heart for our country. In Jesus name I pray and in Jesus name i praise…AMEN. -PJSLB
Pearl Harbor was an event that will live in infamy in the hearts and minds of all Americans. I can only imagine the horror and confusion that took place on that fateful day. Actually, i CAN imagine what it was like. As a son of New York, I know what it is like to see the place you grew up in change in just an instant.
What many people may not realize is that the attacks on that day was not just on Pearl Harbor. Thousands of miles away west of Hawaii (and a whole lot closer to Japan), The beautiful island of Guam was attacked as well and became Japanese territory. You can read a fabulous story about that fateful day on Guam from The Pacific Daily News.
Guam is a hidden gem that every American should visit. There is no place in the world that delivers the way Guam does. Guam is a melting pot of American, Asian, and Pacific Island culture and traditions. Pictures of Guam do not do it justice. It is much more beautiful in person.
On a day that we remember the lives of those lost at Pearl Harbor, please say a prayer for the people on Guam such as Cleotide Bamba, 84 whose life was also changed on that fateful day despite being thousands of miles away from Pearl Harbor.
In his name we all live. – PJSLB
