Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord. Psalm 33:12

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord. Psalm 33:12


Following is from a message by Reverend Dave Bailey from Ranch Hope on his reflections on Independence Day.


According to Reverend Bailey, America is a blessed nation that has freedom of religion not freedom from religion. Scriptures are on many of our government buildings. The Ten Commandments are on the door and wall of the US Supreme Court. At the top of the Washington Monument is the inscription “Praise God.”


All of our presidents have been sworn in on the Bible and place their finger on a meaningful verse. President Eisenhower used Ps. 33:12  "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.” President Lincoln used Rev. 16:7 “True and righteous are your judgments.” President Garfield, who was an ordained minister, used Prov. 21:1 “The King’s heart is in the hand of the Lord.” Teddy Roosevelt placed his finger on James 1:22 “Be ye doers of the word and not hearers only.” President Wilson used Matt. 5:9 “Blessed are the peacemakers” and Ps. 119:97 “How I love your law, I meditate on it day and night.”


The Bible is accessible in our nation yet many people never read it. There was a day when the Bible was chained to the pulpit and only the priests were allowed to read it!


We also have freedom to evangelize and freedom to worship as we choose. In many parts of the world like Iraq and China, Christians are persecuted. Rev. Bailey showed the influence one man can have on another. Tory influenced Dwight Moody. Moody influenced Billy Sunday. Billy Sunday influenced Billy Graham. Billy Graham has influenced millions.


Rev Bailey remembered seeing a billboard by the Marines that said, “Nobody likes to fight, but somebody better know how.” Although no one likes war, thankfully in our country we have a well-trained military. Bailey challenged the Christians that not everyone shares their faith with others but somebody better know how.


As we reflect on the 4th of July and our freedoms, let’s appreciate our great country and the cost that was paid for our freedoms.

For Great Seafood: Busch’s Restaurant in Sea Isle

For Great Seafood: Busch’s Restaurant in Sea Isle


One hundred twenty-five years in the restaurant business!  Amazing! But 1997 marks the 125th year of Busch’s Restaurant at the south end of Sea Isle. Busch’s is a large restaurant on the Ocean Drive with a reputation for selling the best seafood around. We found the food delicious, the staff friendly and a rustic ambiance that was a throwback to an earlier time.


We had heard great things about the she-crab soup (above) which is only served on Sunday (and Tuesdays in the summer,) so we made it a point to visit on a Sunday. The she-crab soup certainly lived up to its’ reputation- a rich, creamy sauce chock full of moist jumbo lump crab meat. A cup is $6 and a bowl is $7.50 and worth it for the long hours put in to each batch of soup. The soup is a secret family recipe only known and prepared by the owner, Al Shettig. His wife Kim is a 5th generation descendant of the original Busch’s.


The menu will please seafood and land lovers alike with many combinations for those who can’t decide from their extensive menu. I was very pleased with ‘The Eastern Shore’ platter-baked deviled crab, fried soft shell crab and crabmeat au gratin for $30.25 (left.) The soft shell crab was fresh and tasty and the au gratin was so creamy! ‘The Jersey Shore’ also sounded fabulous-deviled crab, deviled clam, fried scallops, shrimp, flounder and a 5 oz. lobster tail for $31.50. What else could a seafood lover want?


They have broiled salmon ($21.50) and broiled seafood platter, flounder, shrimp, scallops ($26.75) for the health conscious. $30.50 to add a 5 oz. lobster tail.


The homemade blue cheese dressing was great on the fresh salad and everyone raved over the amount of crab in the crab cakes. They have a 12 oz filet mignon for $27.25 and topped with jumbo lump crab meat for $8 extra. Entrees come with rolls, salad, potato and vegetable, cole slaw or stewed tomatoes.


They also have a great kid’s menu and kids eat free on Wednesday! Visit Busch’s soon before the summer crowds get here, although the restaurant is huge to accommodate the crowds.

For Great Italian Food: “Giuseppe’s Gourmet Italian Restaurant”

For Great Italian Food: “Giuseppe’s Gourmet Italian Restaurant


At Giuseppe’s on Rt 50 in Seaville, they believe that “fine cooking is an art.” We were very pleased with their excellent food and comfortable, friendly atmosphere.


We started out with tasty, garlic rolls that went great with our BYOB, White Merlot. Then we were served delicious salad with tomato, cucumber, red onion, radishes, black olives, and tasty blue cheese dressing. My husband enjoyed the olive oil, garlic and basil dressing.

I then had the best cup of French onion soup you can imagine for $2.50 (Bowl 4.50). Definitely homemade and slow cooked.

They have an extensive menu, (one of largest I have seen as well) and offer “Create Your Own Salad,” “Create Your Own Burger” and “Create Your Own Pizza.” I had fun Selecting My “Own Pasta, Entrée and Sauce” from a wide variety of choices

The choice of entrees included chicken, veal, sausage, shrimp, scallops, meatballs, crab and clams. The sauces included tomato, Newburg, Alfredo, Fra Diablo and scampi and others.

I chose linguine, shrimp and Newburg sauce. I didn’t taste any sherry in the sauce, but it was delicious none the less.

The first time there, I chose a pizza with meatballs. (above) Superb! They offer 3 sizes: 8” Personal pizza for 5.25; a 12” Small pizza for 7.45 and a 16” Large pizza for 9.50. There is a long list of toppings from vegetables to chicken to the standard mushroom and pepperoni, all extra. My husband enjoyed the huge portion of Veal Parm and linguine pasta (left).

They have hot and cold appetizers, hoagies and sandwiches and classic veal, chicken and seafood entrees from Parmesan to Marsala to Alfredo as well as lasagna, ziti, stuffed shells, ravioli and other Italian classics.

The night we were there it was prom night at Ocean City High School and a young couple stopped in to say hi to the owners. We even got to see the Nonna and Nonno (grandmother and grandfather) come out from the kitchen. They were definitely from the Old Country.

Nice décor! Excellent food!  Worth the drive!
