Happy Birthday America!!

"Now listen to me: I shall give you counsel, and God be with you. You be the people's representative before God, and you bring the disputes to God, then teach them the statues and the laws, and make known to them the way in which they are to walk, and the work they are to do. Furthermore, you shall select out of all the people able men who fear God, men of truth, those who hate dishonest gain;...If you do this thing and God so commands you, then you will be able to endure, and all these people also will go to their place in peace."
Exodus 18:19-21c, 23
What a great place to start. I believe our forefathers felt the same way. Not everyone knows (or wants to know) that the United States of America was founded on Godly principles. I do. And I am so grateful.

Here's a photo of several founding fathers of the US Constitution. We all know Benjamin Franklin and George Washington. Sorry to say, I am not familiar with the other men. My research came up empty. Maybe you could help out.

My research did lead to a few interesting websites, though.
For an accurate history of our forefathers, try WallBuilders.

Here's an interesting speech.

Have a safe holiday!
