Freedom

It wouldn’t be right to not mention the holiday our country is celebrating today.  4th of July.  Independence Day.

In so many ways, American’s take our freedom for granted.  Most of us don’t know there is an alternative – to not be free.  The freedom of our own destiny, our lives, lifestyle, goals, thoughts, education, travels, homes, family, friendships, religion, & beliefs,  (and, that is just the tip of our iceberg of freedoms!)

Did you know that on the day they approved the Declaration of Independence  John Adams said that the Fourth of July should be celebrated as a “day of deliverance by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty”?  We should all strive for deliverance from any distractions, and TO a devotion to God! 

I just keep walking, towards my own freedom, which includes my devotion to God!  Thank you to our founding fathers who established this great nation under God.  Thank you to the countless lives devoted to maintaining our freedom.  Thank you and God’s blessings over all who have given their lives in our fight for freedom.  And, last, hopes and prayers that Americans will renew their devotion to God and honor the freedom He gave us.

Happy 4th of July and God Bless America!
