Happy Birthday United States of America ! As you celebrate this holiday, either in the Eastern half of the country where you may be without electricity due to the storms or dry due to drought. Or you may be in the Western part of the country where wildfires presently abound, please use common sense and care, should you use fireworks or any sparkler products whatsoever. Fire crews are spread thin today, as are water supplies. Please stay safe.
This is also the occasion of the 200th blog post to "Rational Preparedness" . Happy Birthday to this blog, as well.
On this day in which we commemorate the birth of our country, there are many forces within and without her government which work to destroy her, and to destroy the economy and the freedoms of her inhabitants. Yes, many Americans have lost their way, and given into popular culture and to self destruction, but many of us haven't. Many of us remain as the obedient children we were when we first learned of you when we were first aware here on Earth. Please guide and protect us, our families, and our nation, as we endure trial by fire in many ways, both literal, and in terms of either corruption, treason, and politically induced ethics violations, in both our presidential regime, and our land's highest court. Please walk with us Lord.
May also this blog continue to be a force for good in the world, and a tribute to Daniel and my Dad who both rest with you now. In Jesus name I pray.
