Georgia - July Memory

Present day view of skyline of midtown Atlanta from Piedmont Park.
Piedmont Park in 1968-Our choir and orchestra from Georgia State U put on a patriotic program. I still remember feeling goosebumps when we sang "America"  because the music was so beautiful in that outdoor setting on a summer evening.

Our father's God to, Thee,
Author of liberty,
To Thee we sing.
Long may our land be bright
With freedom's holy light;
Protect us by Thy might,
Great God, our King!

I imagine that was a lovely setting and the music must have been incredible. Your background and header photo are so vibrant and pretty today.
Don't you miss sitting on top of the old crank ice cream freezer??? ha ha

Our church used to have some beautiful music at Tanglewood Park too. It was so inspirational and wonderful singing about God.

Karen, Nel just moved to Georgia and she loves it! She got a promotion in her job, and it's only for a couple of years, but she said the people are so nice and the food is great.

The choir must have sounded so beautiful singing "America."

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment on the song I shared today. I'm so sorry about the loss of your son. I don't know how anybody can cope with such a tragic loss. I think it's only human for us to wonder to "why", and I definitely don't think it's wrong for us to ask that, even if we don't get a definite answer. God knows our hearts and our hurts. Prayers for you, sweet Lady.
