Quote of the Day

Let the peace of Christ keep you in tune with each other, in step with each other. None of this going off and doing your own thing. And cultivate thankfulness. Let the Word of Christ—the Message—have the run of the house. Give it plenty of room in your lives. Instruct and direct one another using good common sense. And sing, sing your hearts out to God! Let every detail in your lives—words, actions, whatever—be done in the name of the Master, Jesus, thanking God the Father every step of the way.

~ Colossians 3:16 MSG

This is the day when Americans, above all others, should thank God for all the blessings still resting on this nation, and on us. Despite our misgivings about the government, terrorism, and everything else, we are still blessed.

Thank you, Lord, for all the gifts you've bestowed upon this nation. We honor you, Lord, and thank you for our lives.
