4th of July 2010

This weathered folk art depiction of an American flag is on a building in historical Leipers Fork. We visited this charming little community last year. It is located in middle Tennessee, south of the Nashville area. The community residents and properties were greatly impacted by the flooding in early May.

I digitally altered the photograph to enhance the worn look and to evoke memories of the storm. The residents here are a resilient bunch and will undoubtedly heal and thrive in the days and years ahead.

Please say a prayer today for our troops who put themselves in harm’s way to protect us and our freedoms. Please say a prayer today for our citizens who are hurting in these current economic times. Please say a prayer today for our great Nation to survive this period of political darkness and return to common sense, fiscal discipline, and our Constitutional roots.

America will weather the storm!


  1. What an awesome image. Prayers for our military, citizens and nation as a whole are indeed part of today's agenda.

  2. Happy 4th Donna!! Hope you enjoy your 1st 4th of July in your new home!!
