Sunday Thoughts ~ America, Since 1776

“Whatever our differences, we are fellow Americans…” ~ John McCain

Good Sunday morning, dear friends.  Today, we are on the cusp of new beginnings.  Hopefully, an improved chapter in the life of each and every American. 

Our new leadership in the White House has much work to do.  There are so many issues facing our nation, when I think of them my head spins.  But, faith and hope are beautiful things.  They inspire and move people toward good and wonderful accomplishments.   I pray our nation will pull together, support our new president and his team, and that we will, once again, respect one another, and be a beacon of hope for the world.  

Man In The Arena,  Theodore Roosevelt

“It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly, who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement; and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly…”

Dear friends, I hope you have appreciated my thoughts.  And, in the words of Abraham Lincoln, let us move forward…

 With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation’s wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan ~ to do all which may achieve and cherish a just, and a lasting peace, among ourselves, and with all nations.” ~ Abraham Lincoln


Know, I wish you and yours a beautiful day.


May your week ahead be full of joy.  Stay Well!



“Sometimes it takes a while to recognize that someone has a special ability to get us to believe in ourselves, to tie that belief to our highest ideals, and to imagine that together we can do great things.” ~ Caroline Kennedy

Beautiful post…..xo

Biden hasn’t won just because the media has said so. The voters are the people who elect the president. There is rampant voter fraud in this country. I live in MI and am a victim of it myself. Our district was forced to use sharpies which bleed through the other side. This invalidates our vote. I have questioned this and complained to no avail. There are numerous other fraudulent actions including cyber fraud discovered in our state. This is far from over. I agree there should be unity, but this will never happen until the Supreme Court gets to bottom… Read more »

I am so filled with joy today, and hope. Of course, there is healing to do and healing is hard. Becoming one is never easy when so divided. But my prayer is that we can, that we will. We have decency again in our leadership and that counts for a lot. Happy Week.


God bless America…And the world. Have a lovely Sunday.

querido amigo, tu publicación es muy hermosa. las dos imágenes que muestra son realmente hermosas y significativas. En España se sigue de cerca la noticia de las elecciones en su país y espero que sean por el bien de todos incluido el resto de países que también se sienten influenciados por tan importantes como Estados Unidos. Dentro de eso no puedo arreglármelas solo y tengo que estar en la casa de mi hija, estoy bien, esperando cada semana las radiografías que me dirán si el desgarro se está consolidando ya que el médico no está a favor de operar porque… Read more »

Your neighbours in Canada have been watching carefully and hope that the results of this election will be a breath of fresh air bringing unity and healing to you all.


I wish I felt as good about things as you do, but I do not. I also believe things will not heal any time soon, Biden is too old for the office , is showing signs of mental slowing, and God forbid that Harris woman becomes President. As a former Californian I know too much about her past,. The far left will be calling the shots and not Biden.
Enough……want you to know I do enjoy your Sunday writings…..thank you.

Sandra, I hope and pray with you that we can become Americans again ! Put aside our political differences and in the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, “… join together as one …”
