Old Glory


Our friend, Jim Shipman of JLOR Farm, helped me install this flag in front of our house last July 2nd, just in time for Independence Day.
Seeing the flag waving in the breeze reminds me of the lyrics to the song, "The Red, White, and Blue", by Christian songwriter, John W. Peterson.

The Red, White, and Blue

"Proudly it waves, Old Glory, over the land of the free;
Promise of hope and freedom, symbol of liberty.

Red, white and blue are its colors;
Colors both brilliant and clear.
Colors with far deeper meaning than that at first may appear.

Red is for blood of patriots who have died to free us;
White is for justice and government of law;
Blue is for honor and faith in all we do!

This is my flag;
 This is Old Glory,
The red, white and blue."

(from I LOVE AMERICA, by John W. Peterson)
