Celebrating Freedom...

The Fourth of July has always been one of my favorite holidays. We as Americans come together and celebrate in one voice the commonality we share that is our freedom, bought for us by the blood of those who had a greater vision for us than that which was evident at the time. It is something to be celebrated with thanksgiving and humility, as we are the direct beneficiaries of that sacrifice, and I am grateful to live under the promise of that freedom.

So beyond the fireworks, picnics and parades, we must stand back and recognize that which is greater than ourselves. To those who have sacrificed their lives so I can live in freedom, I say thank you.

“Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people he chose for his inheritance.” Psalm 33:12
