What is the meaning of patriotism according to the dictionary?  It's the "love for or the devotion to ones country". 

So what has happened to our patriotism?  When did it fall away, get lost...all but disappear?  I believe it happens just as it happens with our Christian faith.  It's small steps at first.  We hurry off to work or school before we say a prayer; we cease to open God's Word on a daily basis; the world infiltrates our lives more that God is allowed in.

So it is with patriotism...first we remove it from home and schools.  We forget to share what it costs to be free.  We forget that men and women have died for this flag, this country, and this way of life.

Can you join me in bringing, both, a revival to our Christian walk, as well as, a revival to our patriotism back?  Starting with us, in our homes, communities, and lives.  Let's begin anew to read God's precious Word, to share it with our children and grandchildren...let's begin anew to revive the patriotism we seem to have lost over the generations that have past.

God bless you and God bless this great country!

I discovered the Treasury List function on Etsy and created a couple of lists. Here is a picture of some of my "favorite" treasures. They are all from different shops; don't they make a beautiful collage. If you see something you like just click the photo to access the links to the site.

I've made two lists so far...I hope you'll stop by and take a look. What fun! Thanks for taking the time with me today!

My Liebster Award!

"Liebster" is German for Favorite and my friend Jodi's Book Reviews has honored me with the award and asked me to link back to her. So here it is.

The idea is to create a post with a link back and choose 5 other blogs with under 200 followers to do the same. I'm hoping to capture a few followers and help others in the here goes.

Above are the 5 blogs I would like to share the award with. Thank you so much for Following along. Don't feel bad if you can't do this...I thought it would be fun so I did.

Thank you for Visiting

I just had a "Labor Day" visitor and I wanted to say thank you.  It's people like you that make me feel a bit of the joy of the Lord on a day to day basis.

I've been adding to my other blog, Sweet Home Designs, and there are times when this one gets left behind.  I apologize.

I opened an Etsy shop in an effort to support my hobby and hopefully bring a little income in during this difficult time.

Here's one of my latest:

Thank you for visiting and following...I'm so glad you're here!

Blessings and love,
