Commemorating Veteran's Day
I noticed this morning that the American flag is waving in the background of this clip! How often is American freedom the backdrop to the life you enjoy?
If you live in the USA, you have access to nearly unlimited opportunity. You can start from scratch and create the life of your dreams, and — most importantly — the life God wants you to design and build, through partnership with Him.
Many people with negative mindsets are quick to point out inequalities and inequities that make it more difficult for some than for others, but I dare you to list one country where immigrants have been more successful. Also, many American-born people from a variety of ethnicities and backgrounds are succeeding here too.
We live in a nation where nearly anything is possible. Maybe that’s why they call it “the American dream!”
If you live outside the USA, you may have experienced the benefits of American freedom and generosity in your country. The United States has sent assistance and aid to nations around the world, and non-governmental organizations have helped administer food, education, Christian ministry and more.
Especially after visiting Haiti twice this year, I am grateful to live in a nation that was founded on Biblical principles. Many people these days love to hate on America, but you hardly see any of them leaving 😉. That’s because we live in one of the greatest nations in the world.
I am proud to be an American. God bless America! 🇺🇲

Also, in honor of Veteran's Day, I would like to share again our #PrayerAlarmAmerica video that Anthony and I created two years ago. It's still time to pray for America.
In this short version, created for TikTok, you can see me pausing from my vegetable-chopping to stop and pray 😊
And here's the full-length version (which has garnered 2K+ views on Facebook!). It does not show me on screen but it does include plenty of clips I helped direct and produce 😊.
