Here are just a couple of projects I made this week and painted with patriotic theme. Flags have been a big part of my decor ever since the 70's. I found this desk and chair in the 5.00 shed and the table is just an old door front and and table bottom I had. I wanted it to convey the important things my early (public) school years had taught me. Every morning we started our day out by saying the pledge of allegiance to the flag. We also said the Golden rule "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."That is actually a quote from the Bible Matthew 7:12 Imagine everyday we as a class said the pledge, a Bible verse, and yes, for a while even a prayer. Now we are thinking of taking away the motto this country was founded on "In God We Trust." So if we take it away what do we replace it with? Last week we talking about how when 911 happened it seemed as if everyone was praying and asking God to bring them through. So if the motto disappears don't panic, my prayer will be that our faith will increase and the our lights will shine brighter so all can see. We all need hope to survive, my hope will always be my trust in God, it was good when I was a kid and my country said it was okay and now more than ever even when they think different. God is good all the time.
