My Home Sweet Home

Tomorrow at lunch time I will sing "God Bless America".

I will have these waves of excitement and nerves in my stomach as I wait my turn at the microphone. I will hear the words spoken and the prayers said, but in my head I'll also be making mental notes, ticking off songs and speakers until I finish the prayer service with such a powerful anthem of patriotism and faith.
And it's such a simple song with simple words.

God bless America, land that I love!
Stand beside Her and guide Her through the night with a light from above.
From the mountains to the valleys to the oceans white with foam,
God bless America, my home sweet home!
Tomorrow our community is hosting Cry Out America on the lawn of our local courthouse. We're doing this in remembrance of the tragedy of September 11, 2001, but also to pray for a Christ-awakening in our communities, churches, and our nations.

Check your communities out....see if your local area is hosting a service tomorrow.

It's one hour.

From noon to 1 p.m.

One hour.

It's free.

But you'll leave with more than you realize.
