Happy Independence Day America
Today is Independence Day for our American cousins. I would like to take this opportunity to wish them well. In particular, on their national day, I would like to pay tribute to the men and women of the American armed forces who are out in the weeds defending the free world against our common enemies. May God protect them from all harm.
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, "He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust."
Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.
You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you.
(from the 91st Psalm)
