the grace of red. white. blue.

today I am reminded of the grace
to live in a country
such as ours

the grace to worship my God
befriend whomever I wish
buy whatever I need

the grace to sleep unafraid
send my boys to a good school
and drive anywhere I desire

the grace to pray for our leaders
elect those leaders
and pray again for those leaders

today I am thankful for the grace
of this red. white. and blue.
place of grace

let us not forget that grace
is simply
unmerited favor

let us not strut around
as if
we have done something to gain it
