I am wondering that, given what has been happening in our nation these past few weeks and months, if maybe we should look back at our history and see where we have come from.

From a time where we realized our respect for our Pledge of Allegiance and our National Anthem, of years gone by when we all stood and saluted our flag and stood at attention. The words that are in that song and in the pledge, put there many years ago, reflect who the master really is.

Everyone points fingers at each other now, and from the attitudes that we see displayed we realize that it has been a long time since some of those people looked up and raised their hands to the master. After all, He is the one who is really in charge and runs everything.

My hopes to all of those in leadership is to recognize who is truly in charge and know that he has led us through some very tough times, including two world wars.

With the Lord as our guide and belief in what He promises, our questions will not go unanswered but will be answered properly by Him.

This is just my thought for the day for all of us to receive a blessing when we can say that our prayers have been answered.

Thank you and God bless.
