Happy July 4th, Independence Day 2011!
Yes, "we the people" have been blessed to live in the greatest country in all the world--the United States of America! Having grown up a "military child" I have always been aware of that fact and also of just how precious freedom truly is. But, this past week those childhood memories have taken on an even deeper meaning as I bid goodbye to my eighteen year old grandson as he boarded an airplane for West Point and a career in the U.S. Army. The desire of his heart is to grow into the best soldier possible so that he too can help defend this great nation. My love and prayers are with him always as he travels this awesome journey. I am so proud of you Chad!
Today, as we celebrate our great country and the freedoms we all enjoy I hope that we will take the time to give thanks to our Heavenly Father for allowing us to be born in the United States of America, to our founding fathers the very wise men who built for us a strong foundation on which to build and to the brave men and women who sacrifice so much to protect the very freedoms that we still enjoy today. Those very freedoms have come at a great cost!
America---"a land filled with great opportunities for all people".
America---"the land of the free and the home of the brave".
GOD BLESS AMERICA
I love you guys,
John 8:32-You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.
