Happy Fourth of July


Photomanipulation by Carol Moore

Happy Fourth of July! I am so thankful to live in the United States of America. God has truly blessed this nation. Although, at times in these past few years, it may seem we do not have much to celebrate, but we do have a lot to celebrate. We can celebrate and praise God that we still have our freedoms and rights. We are still in the land of the free and home of the brave. Many men and women have died fighting for our rights and freedoms, and I stand proudly and salute those who did, and I salute our flag. America represents so many things, and despite the division presently being forced upon us, we are all united under this great country. When the storm hits the shore or when the fires are ablaze, we always manage to step up and be there to help one another. Perhaps we have forgotten that because we are all too busy fighting, yelling, and tearing each other apart over different politics, beliefs, and ideologies. John Quincy Adams wrote to his wife and stated this in his letter to her “A Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty, once lost, is lost forever.” My hope and prayer is for those who wish to give up their freedoms due to fear or lack of knowledge that you are awaken to the truth and realize just how precious our freedom is. Our forefathers did. And as Benjamin Franklin said, "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." We must never give up our rights or our freedoms. 

New Photos

It has been a while since I posted any new artwork or photos. I have not had much time lately to photograph, draw, or paint. Perhaps later this year, I will get a chance too. I hope you enjoy the few photos I do have to share from earlier this spring.




Wish you all a blessed and safe holiday!

God Bless,
