Independence Day Collect

Lord God Almighty, in whose Name the founders of this country won liberty for themselves and for us, and lit the torch of freedom for nations then unborn: Grant, we beseech thee, that we and all the peoples of this land may have grace to maintain these liberties in righteousness and peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
(H/T T19)
The flag on my parent's property in Battle Ground that my dad has always maintained. I'm thankful I was taught to have respect for the flag as a child.

Happy Independence Day to everyone!

It would be nice if I could see you in person. But I will not hold that against you. Have a wonderful Independence Day.

Hey Jacob, It would be great to get together sometime. I'm coming home about every 2 weeks this month as I have weekends off. I'll probably be down in Clark County again in 2 weeks. We'll get together sometime. Hope you also have a great independence day brother.
