Praise The Lord For All He’s Done


Happy Independence Day 2016!


Wishing everyone a very happy Independence Day!
Have fun and be safe, y’all! ๐Ÿ˜€

(I wish I had a better video to share with y’all, but I had to share this one because I think this truly is my favorite rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner. ย And no, it’s not justย because it’s sung by an Okie girl, either. ย haha! ๐Ÿ˜› )

The Star-Spangled Banner – Story Behind the Song

With Independence Day coming up in a few day, I’ve been trying to find a truly beautiful performance of our National Anthem: The Star-Spangled Banner to share here on my blog. ย I’ve browsed YouTube and watched so many videos that it’s not even funny. ย If I didn’t know the words to this song before (but, of course, I did! ๐Ÿ˜› ), I certainly do now! XD

I will be sharing one of my favorite… “versions” of The Star-Spangled Banner on Monday, but today I thought it would be a good idea to share the story behind the song. ย If you’ve never heard the story, take a few minutes to watch this video and see what the meaning is behind those words that we sing. ย And if you already know the story… listen to it againย and let yourself be reminded. ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

And then watch the video below of a woman singing a beautiful rendition of this song live at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.
