Today is not only Flag Day, it is the 200th birthday of the Star Spangled Banner!  Have you ever read all of the lyrics? 

While I love the verse that we all know, the last verse is my favorite:

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust.”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

In honor of Flag Day, I am offering my Star Spangled Banner matching cards at half off this week.  The discount expires June 21, so grab them here now.
