SHERI's SUTHERN LIVIN'
Twelve Allied nations came by air and by sea on to a 50 mile
stretch of German-fortified beach on the French coastline 70 years ago
today. Survivors of this day are being interviewed by journalists from all
over the world. The eyes of Americans are dimming so LISTEN and LEARN from them or all is lost as to what
we learned from that experience.
"The eyes of the world are upon
you. The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march
with you. In company with our brave Allies and brothers in arms on
other fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the German war
machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over the oppressed peoples of
Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world."

THESE ARE ACTUAL COMPLAINTS RECEIVED BY "THOMAS COOK VACATIONS" FROM DISSATISFIED CUSTOMERS:
"I think it should be explained in the brochure that the local
convenience store does not sell proper biscuits like custard creams or
2. "It's lazy of the local shopkeepers in
Puerto Vallarta to close in the afternoons. I often needed to buy
things during 'siesta' time -- this should banned."
3. "On my holiday to Goa in India, I was disgusted to find that almost every restaurant served curry. I don't like spicy food."
"We booked an excursion to a water park but no-one told us we had to
bring our own swimsuits and towels. We assumed it would be included in
5. "The beach was too sandy. We had to clean everything when we returned to our room."
6. "We found the sand was not like the sand in the brochure. Your brochure shows the sand as white but it was more yellow."
7. "They should not allow topless sunbathing on the beach. It was very distracting for my husband who just wanted to relax."
8. "No-one told us there would be fish in the water. The children were scared."
9. "Although the brochure said that there was a fully equipped kitchen, there was no egg-slicer in the drawers."
10. "We went on holiday to Spain and had a problem with the taxi drivers as they were all Spanish."
"The roads were uneven and bumpy, so we could not read the local guide
book during the bus ride to the resort. Because of this, we were unaware
of many things that would have made our holiday more fun."
"It took us nine hours to fly home from Jamaica to England. It took the
Americans only three hours to get home. This seems unfair."
13. "I compared the size of our one-bedroom suite to our friends' three-bedroom and ours was significantly smaller."
"The brochure stated: 'No hairdressers at the resort,' We're trainee
hairdressers and we think they knew and made us wait longer for
15. "When we were in Spain there were too many
Spanish people there. The receptionist spoke Spanish, the food was
Spanish. No one told us that there would be so many foreigners."
16. "We had to line up outside to catch the boat and there was no air-conditioning."
17. "It is your duty as a tour operator to advise us of noisy or unruly guests before we travel."
18. "I was bitten by a mosquito. The brochure did not mention mosquitoes."
"My fiancé and I requested twin-beds when we booked, but instead we
were placed in a room with a king bed. We now hold you responsible and
want to be re-reimbursed for the fact that I became pregnant. This
would not have happened if you had put us in the room that we booked."

How Blessed is the Nation whose God is the Lord Ps33:12
Irving Berlin’s “God Bless America”
Diamond Rio: In God We Still Trust -
"If we ever forget that we are one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under."- Ronald Reagan
All this time, I thought this was Billy Graham's prayer. It isn't.
Prayer for Our Nation
Father, we come before you today to ask your Forgiveness and to seek
your direction and guidance. We know Your Word Says, 'Woe to those who
call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have Done. We have lost
our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We Have exploited
the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded Laziness and
called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it Choice. We
have shot abortionists and called it justifiable... We have Neglected
to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We Have
abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's
Possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with
profanity And pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have
ridiculed the Time-honored values of our forefathers and called it
enlightenment. Search Us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us
from sin and Set us free.
In Jesus name, amen!' With the Lord's
help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and Wholeheartedly become
our desire so that we once again can be called 'One Nation under God!'
