FLAG DAY – 2017

Even though it seems that our nation has lost all reverence for its original foundations, even the flag itself, let’s never forget what it stands for.  The American Flag was given a special day of celebration on June 14, 1777, when our nation’s first flag was adopted.

Many lives have been spent and blood shed in honor of what that flag represents.  Only a short year before it was adopted as the flag of our nation, America had declared its independence from a tyrannical government across the sea.  It was time for this fledgling country to establish itself as a new nation.

During the War of 1812, Francis Scott Key penned the words of the National Anthem which referred to our flag in stunning words.  There are actually four verses to this song.  The fourth verse is as follows:

O, thus be it ever when freemen shall stand,
Between their lov’d homes and the war’s desolation;
Blest with vict’ry and peace, may the heav’n-rescued land
Praise the Pow’r that hath made and preserv’d us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

As words of allegiance and patriotism are heard today, let’s not forget that our country was founded on Judaeo/Christian values.  In God we trust!  He will lead us again if we repent of our sinful ways and put our faith in Him once more.

  3. It is strange that people burn the flag, but I suppose those are self-righteous. If they know what the flag symbolizes, they sure don’t make it known.

    • Thank you Kristi. I totally agree. Our country was founded on these Judeo Christian values and if we’re ever to survive, we need to humbly approach the throne of God and ask for forgiveness.
