My thirteen stripes alternating red and white, with a union of
thirteen white stars in a field of blue, represented a new
constellation, a new nation dedicated to the personal and religious

My colors symbolize the patriotic ideals and spiritual qualities of
the citizens of my country.
.
My red stripes proclaim the fearless courage and integrity of American
men and boys and the self-sacrifice and devotion of American mothers
and daughters.
.
My white stripes stand for liberty and equality for all.
.
My blue is the blue of heaven, loyalty, and faith.
.
I represent these eternal principles: liberty, justice, and humanity.
.
I embody American freedom: freedom of speech, religion, assembly, the

God’s Rosebud
==============
.

A new minister
was walking with an older,
more seasoned minister
in the garden one day.

.. 
Feeling a bit insecure
about what God
had for him to do,
he was asking the older preacher
for some advice.

.. 
The older preacher
walked up to a rosebush
and handed the young preacher
a rosebud and told him
to open it
without tearing off any petals.

.. 
The young preacher
looked in disbelief
at the older preacher
and was trying to figure out

with his wanting to know
the will of God
for his life and ministry.

.. 
But because of his great respect
for the older preacher,
he proceeded to try to unfold the rose,
while keeping every petal intact.
