Ever since I was a little bitty girl. I have had a thing for four specific items. I will try to explain the best I can.
John Wayne is our country. He represents everything that was ever good about patriotism. He made us believe that this great nation was the only one out there.He also made people think if you didn’t like the idea of our being the best we could just step outside and settle the matter. He taught us to fight for what was right. Never to back down. You didn’t talk trash about this country. If you elected a President you didn’t trash him. You put your back into hard work, and did what was right for the country whether you liked it or not. You said the Pledge of Allegiance with your hat over your heart. You saluted the Flag and Dared anybody to say something derogatory about it. You supported the troops that were at war. Back when War was War and not a Police action.
Johnny Cash goes two different ways in my book. With songs like “The Grand Old Flag.” He spoke about keeping America Free. He believed in justice for all. Listen to the words of the song of The Man in black sometime and tell me he didn’t. He sang songs of every day men. The men in Prison, The Detroit autoworker, He spoke to the working men and woman of this country. He also was a believer in our Savior Jesus Christ. I have an Cd’s of him reading the new testament. He would rather set and read our father’s word as much as he liked to sing about the working man.
John Deere tractors the back bone of the American Farmer. The International Harvester combines and John Deere tractors put more farmers in fields than any other companies. They have clocked more hours in the field. Than the old plow horses. People think of John Deere the same way they think of the American Flag when you see a large farm going to the field. They line up and go. They don’t come back till the work is done.
Jesus the reason any of us continue to exist. Our only way to our heavenly Father. The reason our sins have been for given even though a lot of us are repeat offenders. (I am using myself on that.) But also the reason that we stand the tiniest reason for making it to heaven at all. Because he took the burden of our sins. The reason that we love and have learn what forgiveness is. He continues to teach us right from wrong. Jesus is still teaching us and will continue as long as there is a bible to be laid in an unbelievers hand. He listens to our stupidity and continues to love us even when we have screamed at him. He still loves us unconditionally even when we don’t deserve it.
So the next time that you want to scream. Take into consideration we where we’d be with out the above four.
Our Country wouldn’t exist with pride and honor, The every day working man had a hero, The American Farmer puts food on our tables,
and our Precious Lord Jesus is still saving us from ourselves.
