It’s a special day here in Canada, so I’m taking a break from my regular “What if” series, plus posting today! It’s July 1st – Canada Day!

Right now the Canadian flag in our back yard is flapping in the gentle breeze. It got me thinking about our country. As we celebrate Canada’s birthday, what comes to your mind? Freedom? Bravery? Or…just another day off?

Do we take our beautiful country for granted? Unfortunately, there are times when I think we do. We live in a place we should be proud of. We’re free! What more could we ask for?

Just look around you. What do you see? From the Rocky Mountains all the way to the beaches of Prince Edward Island. Coast to coast – our nation is one of beauty and we need to be proud! Are you?

Today, my husband and I spent some time at the beach, relaxing and enjoying God’s creations (well, maybe not the seagulls!). Tonight we’re going to take in some fireworks. It’s just nice to know we can do it in freedom.

Let’s show our patriotism and raise our flags! Enjoy our magnificent country!

Today at Port Stanley, ON

O Canada!

Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.

With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!

From far and wide,
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

P.S. To my American friends, have a blessed 4th of July! Happy Independence Day!
