Brenda Photo Challenge

Miz Karen is our gracious hostess for this challenge and she chose our topic,

Patriotism: What My Country Means to Me

My government doesn't always make me happy, or proud, but my heart is full of pride for these great United States of America where I was born and have lived for most of my life. I see the glory in,


Her Amber Waves of Grain


Our American Flag (waving or worn)


Our Spirit and Pride for our Colors



Our Celebrations of our Liberty and Freedom

God Bless America!

Ya'll be sure to keep checking over on Karen's blog to see who she chooses to host the next challenge. I can't wait to find out what the next topic will be!

Love your pictures. I love seeing the creativity of each participant. The photo challenge was a great idea. So glad you thought of it.

The wheat picture was inspiring, the baby in the flag was adorable, and the fireworks was incredible.

I love your photos. Everytime I passed a cornfield I wanted to stop and take a photo for this challenge, so I loved your wheat field.
