Almanac.com says the nasturtium represents patriotism. Patriotism means devoted love for ones country/in support and defense of one’s country. This is my patriotic tribute to America for Independence Day.
Almanac.com also says that the nasturtium prefers poor soils and they do not need fertilizers. In fact, Almanac says fertile soil produces more foliage than flowers.
It think the troubles we are seeing right now in our country and around the world are a result of good seeds planted in poor soil. The Lord is raising up flowers or praying citizens who are determined to bloom for the Kingdom of God.
Isn’t it wonderful to live in a country where we are free to pray and worship? We keep hearing the phrase “Make America Great Again.” I declare to you that America has not lost it’s greatness. We have lost the reason for our hope. Our founding fathers didn’t exclude the Lord from its determination to be a free nation. I believe that when we determine to be one nation under God, we will remain free to live, serve, and worship.
This is a call to prayer for America. Call on the Lord and we shall be saved.
I am a Christian American and I will call on the Lord, for He is worthy to be praised!
Lord, show us your love,
and save us.
8 I will listen to God the Lord.
He has ordered peace for those who worship him.
Don’t let them go back to foolishness.
9 God will soon save those who respect Him,
and His glory will be seen in our land.
10 Love and truth belong to God’s people;
goodness and peace will be theirs.
11 On earth people will be loyal to God,
and God’s goodness will shine down from heaven.
12 The Lord will give His goodness,
and the land will give its crops.
13 Goodness will go before God
and prepare the way for Him.
