We go into the next election — in the years to come — needing some hope, somewhere to place our faith. Here are some suggestions.

At Thinking in Christ we have this video (see Bill Whittle: The Glorious Fourth).

Except for the day it was posted, He Hath Said‘s God is with Me Still So I Need Not Fear has nothing to do with the 4th of July, and yet it did.

In Righteousness – It Liberates A Nation, the author of the Salt and Light Blog explains why our freedom requires that we trust in the Lord.

With respect to the Founding Fathers, pumabydesign001′s blog offers up July 4th Independence Day – 5 Facts You Don’t Know.

At Defining the Narrative, the author reminds us of our inheritance and the primary requirement for a society of free men and women. Freedom brings a responsibility; to make a free society function, we must each choose to look to God as our ruler.

The bluebird of bitterness provides a carnival of 4th of July posts.

DeHavelle.com/ Level-headed discussion of politics and science offers a bit of cultural analysis and an excellent patriotic poem (written by the blog’s author) in Happy Independence Day, friends. And Google, too.

My Blog provides We Need God in America Again.

sitting on the edge of the sandbox, biting my tongue provides a wild and beautiful Happy Fourth of July!.

PHOEBE’S DETENTION ROOM provides an explanation of what motivated the drafting of the Declaration in Happy 4th of July.

Freedom, by the way explains how the Declaration was written in July 4th Antidote: The Amazing Writing of the Declaration of Independence. I think she meant “anecdote.” Sounds like something I would do. The story is great!

SWAC Girl reviews some local history in July 4, 2012 … American independence, Virginia, and Staunton.

    I’m honored, Tom. Thank you! And, no, I did not concern myself with the devotional fitting the day but noticed myself that it did fit when I read it this morning. You’ve done a fantastic job with this post. God bless you~

  3. Many thanks for the link. Thank you and happy 4th!

    Thank you Tom for including me also, I always feel honored when you find my posts noteworthy.

  5. Thanks for the link Tom. And thanks for catching my malapropism! I have fixed it. I had quite a number of “likes” from new folks, perhaps they were looking for an antidote to the usual BBQs and fireworks and instead received an ancedote about the Declaration. Hope you had a great holiday!
