Listening to radio station 91.5 FM, “The Complete Story” for their July 4th, program, was once again a terrific program, that I just had to hear each time, each day as scheduled this week.
This year’s program emphasized the importance of using the correct name for the “4th of July” as it is our “Independence Day” and we should be proud to say so!
In the first few minutes a song, that we should be singing more often was performed by someone whose name I am sorry I did not write down but his rendition of “America the Beautiful” – with those powerful words we need to sing, “God shed His grace on thee” are for sure a prayer. The whole song and the words are really a prayer, that as a kid, I remember singing in grade school, but never much, again? Why is that?
The finishing touch of the program was absolutely the best, as it was the year before.
I just love to hear, “Sandi Patty” sing the “Star-Spangled Banner!” Her rendition of our National Anthem is the absolute best of all the singers, that I have heard! Her voice is so beautiful and she hits those notes, right on, a most perfect gift from our Almighty Creator, himself!
When I was listening, the “goose-bumps” and hair standing on end, just so “spine-chilling” just a most wonderful voice, a “GIFT” from the “Almighty” and to be able to make such beautiful music. I will have to make an effort to find my tapes, that I purchased some time ago, with the above songs, and play them more often!
“God Bless America” another favorite song of mine, and may the Almighty continue to BLESS all of the AMERICAN people – Now and Forever, who will continue to sing “praises to your Name!” D.V.
