During the upcoming Presidential election, no matter who wins, Obama or McCain, or someone else; I will passionately pray for the continued Liberty and Freedom "my house", my neighborhood, my country has always enjoyed and cherished.
And I will pray God's Wisdom and Guidance will be heard, listened to, accepted and followed by our newly elected leaders. God Bless America!
* "The House I Live In"
The title song of a 1940's Oscar-winning documentary, the catchy tune and these simple lyrics were turned into an instant hit by Frank Sinatra that became an American classic.
"The house I live in, a plot of earth, a street,
The grocer and the butcher and the people that I meet,
The children in the playground, the faces that I see;
All races, all religions, that's America to me.
The house I live in, my neighbors, white and black,
The people who just came here or from generations back;
The town hall and the soap box, the torch of Liberty,
A home for all God's children that's America to me.
The things I see about me, the big things and the small.
The little corner news-stand and the house a mile tall;
The wedding and the churchyard, the laughter and the tears;
The dream that's been growing for two hundred years.
The house I live in, the goodness everywhere;
A land of wealth and beauty with enough for all to share.
A house that we call Freedom, the home of Liberty;
And a promise for tomorrow, that's America to me!"
