God Bless America; Prayer for our Nation.

God our Father,
Giver of life,
we entrust the United States of America to Your loving
care.

You are the rock on which this nation was founded.
You alone are the true source of our cherished rights to
life,
liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Reclaim this land for Your glory and dwell among Your
people.

Send Your Holy Spirit to touch the hearts of our nation´s
leaders.
Open their minds to the great worth of human life
and the responsibilities that accompany human freedom.
Remind Your people that true happiness is rooted in
seeking
and doing Your will.

Through the intercession of Mary Immaculate,
Patroness of our land,
grant us the courage to reject the “culture of death.”
Lead us into a new millennium of life.
We ask this through Christ Our Lord.

In this I pray,

Amen.

God Heals The Brokenhearted: Psalm 147:3.

Psalm 147:3

He heals the brokenhearted
    and binds up their wounds.

Isaiah 30:26

26 Moreover, the light of the moon will be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun will be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day when the Lord binds up the brokenness of his people, and heals the wounds inflicted by his blow.

Dear Lord, You invite all who are burdened to come to you. Allow Your healing Hand to heal me. Touch my soul with Your compassion for others; touch my heart with Your courage and infinite Love for all; touch my mind with Your Wisdom, and may my mouth always proclaim Your praise. Teach me to reach out to You in all my needs, and help me to lead others to You by my example. Most loving Heart of Jesus, bring me health in body and spirit that I may serve You with all my strength. Touch gently this life which you have created, now and forever.
In this I pray, Amen.

National Graham Cracker Day, July 5.

Via Wellness News

The graham cracker was invented in 1829 in New Jersey, by Sylvester Graham. The original graham cracker was made with graham flour, a combination of finely-ground unbleached-wheat flour with the wheat bran and germ coarsely-ground and added back in providing nutrition and flavor. Graham crackers started out as a bland food, unsweetened or mildly sweetened; today they are known as a sugar sweetened baked good, similar to the English term biscuit.

I take my camera’s everywhere.  One in my purse and one on my cell. But, I wait for a special occasion to take my Cannon out.

What would we do without the many memories our camera’s have produced for us?

The Power Of Prayer To The Lord: James 5:14-16, 1 John 5:14-15, Mark 11:24

James 5:14-16

14 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. 16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.[a]

1 John 5:14-15

14 And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. 15 And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him.

Mark 11:24

24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received[a] it, and it will be yours.

National Sunglasses Day, June 27.

Via The Vision Council

Every day—whether it’s sunny or cloudy, summer or winter—millions of Americans make the conscious decision to not wear sunglasses or other ultraviolet (UV)-protective eyewear. While seemingly harmless, this habit carries serious vision risks, many of which are not known or understood by those who fail to wear protective eyewear.

UV radiation is often recognized as the culprit for sunburns and skin cancer but most people are oblivious to the damaging impact the wavelengths inflict on our vision. The problem originates with the sun’s unfiltered ultraviolet (UV) rays. Just as these rays can burn skin cells, they can also harm unprotected eyes. A full day outside without protection can cause immediate, temporary issues such as swollen or red eyes and hypersensitivity to light. Years of cumulative exposure can cause cancer of the eye or eyelid, accelerate conditions like cataracts and age-related macular degeneration.

National Sunglasses Day is held annually on June 27. It is not only an observance but a reminder that our shades are a health necessity and it is important to wear sunglasses or other UV-protective eyewear every day to protect long-term eye health.

Barn Swallow And Chicks Survived The Storm.

The South Jersey area had a storm with tornado warnings. I watched her nest as she and her chicks survived winds over 70 mph.

These barn swallow makes a nest every year and I get to view nature in person. Beautiful.
