Happy Independence Day! The 4th of July is a special day for celebrating the beginning of our nation. I am thankful to live in a nation where I am free to live my life the way I feel is right. I am thankful for freedom of religion and freedom of speech and all the other freedoms that we have in this country. I am very thankful for all the men and women who have served in our military to make sure that this country we have is protected from those who would take freedom from us and those who wish us harm.
“……We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness……” Declaration of Independence of the Thirteen Colonies —In Congress July 4, 1776
I am thankful for the founding fathers, their wisdom and insight and the Creator of all of us, our Father in Heaven without whom none of us would be here. Let’s pray for the leaders of our country, that they would be given the wisdom that only comes from God to lead this nation into the future.
Enjoy your celebrations.
