Lookout

Blue skies shine as far as eye can see
to so emblazon His creativity!
The mountains and the gently rolling hills...
the river and its gently rolling rills...
the winds today to gently groom the grass,
all while billowed whites so softly pass.

From where He looks, there are no border lines,
only the intricacy of His designs!
But a fair amount He's placed in this great land,
and I thank Him for it as I humbly stand
and look across America from this place--
a land so fortunate due His great grace!

And grateful each American needs to be
to have been born in this vicinity
and to reside in the freedom that we know--
not all have such wealth, on them, to bestow!
And others, they should all be in our prayers
unto THE God Who is over ALL affairs!

We are blessed.
Americans, we are so blessed to have residence in this place!  And it is due God's grace alone that we have such.  We are proud, yes, but we must retain humility and pray for those who do not know the freedoms, the liberties and the beauty that we enjoy. 
Pray for the world.  Pray for Israel.  Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.  For He commands us to so by His Word, and we are compelled to do so by His love.
