Life Liberty and the....
Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
I am thankful today for the founding faith of this United States of America. In careful study you will see the virtue in the core principle that gave rise to this great country we call America.
Sure we are a flawed society eat up with all kinds of vice and violence; still at the foundation we see a wonderful thing that we call liberty. This morning as I came in from doing some shopping for a family cookout, my little blond headed Nate walked in the Kitchen. His big smile and sweet nature just caused me to sweep him up in my arms and thank God for life and liberty and the great blessings I see showered down around me.
I am thankful to be an American. I am thankful for freedom of worship and freedom of speech. Today on this special day where we all say the pledge and gather with family and faith, let us remember all of those still held in the bondage of tyranny and poverty. As we say our prayers of thanksgiving, let us pray that Liberty will capture the hearts of every country. As we walk in the blessings of God let us be mindful that we have brothers and sisters in Christ suffering and hungry around this world who would not even know how to imagine living like we do. We should not feel guilty for our blessings, but thankful, grateful and humble.
Happy 4th to you all!
