Flag Day

Today is Flag Day. It is a day to proudly display and show respect for our flag. I love seeing the flag flying; it represents freedom and so much more.

Did you Know? If you like to study flags, then you are a Vexillologist! Betsy Ross was a seamstress who made clothes for George Washington. In June, 1776, Washington approached her to make the country's first flag and the rest is history.

Francis Scott Key Inspired by the British bombardment of Fort McHenry, Francis Scott Key penned the lyrics to our national anthem as he witnessed the event as British rockets whizzed in the air while our American Flag flew in the breeze.

Faith Filled Friday

"As I go forward step by step, the way will be opened up for me." Proverbs 4:12

Faith is taking that next step, even when we are unsure of where it is going, but believing that God is leading us.

"for He who has promised is faithful" Hebrews 10:23b
