few years ago, I sat in my “Comfort” chair and looked
out the window at our flag outside. On this particular
day, it was blowing gently in the soft soothing breeze…but…
the winds of adversity were strong. Certainly
this was an election year, and at every turn there was
another battle to be fought. Our country was divided,
with both parties at odds continually.
looking outward, but reflecting inward…the music for
God Bless America came upon me. God was inspiring
me, and just as He had in the past with the other songs
I had written…He allowed me to hear the music along
with the words. I was working on completing the
Morning Prayer CD, so GBA would have to wait. I
wrote everything down…and waited on God.
I was able to begin working on this new wonder of a
song. When I told Sharon Taylor about it, she
became really excited. As I shared more of it
with her, she would hear what I was hearing…amazing.
Surprising?...NO…Amazing?…YES! Sharon would
often email me MP3’s so that she could share what
she was coming up with, and it was good…really good.
I was more than inspired…Sharon too. She
spent countless hours creating outstanding instrumental
& vocal tracks, and I’ll tell you what….THEY ROCK!
Talk about a “Phenom” of a musical and vocal artist!!!
Be prepared to have your socks blown off!!!
are the facts:
was built on Biblical principals…plain and simple. To
change the foundation doesn't make sense. It doesn't
make sense to:
God out of the Pledge of Allegiance
the Ten Commandments down from the Court House
- Ban prayer
in public schools
condone the slaughtering of the unborn! (With
over 1.3 million lives per year. This
amounts to 64 times more than all of our 12
the list goes on. So, I was thinking….all this,
and we think we can expect God’s blessing??? Are
we just stupid, or are we feigning ignorance…or both??
far, our God has been patient. How long will it
last? How long will He allow us to slowly decimate
everything that we once were? Well, I’m not sure…but
I will continue to work for Him and keep my eyes
focused on the music He has given me.
for the inspiration behind the song.
