America Will Always Stand
Randy Travis
Album :America Will Always Stand

She stands in the face of evil
And will not lose hope or faith
America, the land of freedom
Still the home of the brave.

So raise the banner, called Old Glory
Let us join our fellow man
History will write the story,
America will always stand.

Walking through the fires of danger
There are those who gave their lives
They’re the world’s greatest heroes,
And we won’t forget their sacrifice.

So raise the banner, called Old Glory
Let us join our fellow man
History will write the story,
America will always stand.

America is not divided
Our enemies they will be stopped.
‘Cause, we the people are united
And still, one nation Under God.

So raise the banner, called Old Glory
Let us join our fellow man
History will write the story,
America will always stand.

History will write the story,
America will always stand…

10 Weird Facts About A. J. Alexander

Lately, I was leaning back on the couch when the phone rang. One of my friends called me to tell me about her relationship problems and asked for my advice. We talked for nearly an hour and after we hung up and I was back in my comfortable position on the couch I remembered something about me and started laughing.

One by one several more facts about me crossed my mind and at the end, I decided to share them here. Maybe I can spread a few giggles.

Have fun finding out about A. J. Alexander:

  1. When I am thinking hard about something while I talk about a subject, I get up and walk around. It helps me thinking.
  2. I’m not a nail-artist-person. My fingernails are growing too fast and I consider a weekly manicure a waste of time and money. Sometimes my nails are growing that long they look like hawk claws and I clip them short to avoid damaging the keyboard.
  3. I can’t stand it when my feet are getting too warm. They start swelling and that makes me feel uncomfortable.
  4. I hate asparagus – it makes me throw up.
  5. I keep a Samurai sword in my bedroom, over the headboard of my bed. (I’d be curious hearing different opinions about the psychological meaning of fact #5)
  6. I love the wind. I’m not very vain when it comes to my hair and I love to feel the wind blowing into my face, through my hair and feel the nature around me. I’d be standing outside in wind force 12 if I wasn’t scared to be blown away.
  7. I love high heels but they’re not made for walking. They make my feet burn like fire and I get cranky.
  8. Even though I have three cats I am not exclusively a cat person. I love dogs as well and if I wasn’t working full time I would have a dog – a big one.
  9. I’m a Country Girl. I listen to Country Music, I love horseback riding and own boots.
  10. I like dancing in the warm summer rain.

If you have fun facts about yourself, please let us know in the comments section. We’re curious! 😀

Happy Easter 2019

Weather gets warmer and the wind is a breeze

The flying pollen makes some of us sneeze.

But spring is a season where nature re-starts

the warm air and the sunshine warm our hearts.

Then the holiday gets closer, Easter it’s called

where children search for the nests we installed.

They find bunnies, and eggs, chocolate and sweets

a holiday for all of us, where the family eats.

Gone is the scarf, the coat and the glove.

We all share the  warmth, the laughter and love.

I wish you and your loved ones:

A Part Of European History Is Burning Down – Notre Dame In Paris On Fire

It was a great shock today when the news reported that the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris is on fire.


Notre Dame fire: What we know

  • A major fire erupted at the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris Monday.
  • The cathedral, which was undergoing renovations, suffered extensive damage.
  • Authorities have not yet determined the cause of the fire.
  • No deaths have been reported.
  • Notre Dame construction began in 1163 and was completed in 1345.

The iconic spire at the top of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris has collapsed after a major fire broke out Monday. A Video showed part of the roof of the cathedral collapsing into itself as the fire rages on.

“Everything is burning, nothing will remain from the frame,” Notre Dame spokesperson Andre Finot told French media, according to the Associated Press. By Monday evening, Paris fire chief Jean-Claude Gallet told reporters he believes firefighters have managed to save the cathedral’s landmark rectangular towers from the blaze.
Gallet said, “We now believe that the two towers of Notre Dame have been saved,” Reuters news agency reported. “We now consider that the main structure of Notre Dame has been saved and preserved.” There was still a risk that some of the interior structures could collapse, he said.

It is horrible! I who have seen this amazing building several times and felt the unusual spirit of what was within these walls. In my opinion, the emotions in this church might have been caused by millions of prayers, by shiny eyes, fascinated thoughts, and Christian comfort.

My heart is bleeding that the world might be losing one of the most fascinating historical buildings still existing. I pray that this won’t happen and that today’s generation and the next ones will have to chance to see what I saw, to feel what I felt and to experience what millions of people experience year by year…

May the world see this miracle of architectural art back in its old varnish and glory, the way it once was, we all knew it – and how it hopefully once will be again.
