Last night as our little family gathered with hundreds of others along the curb of our little town my husband was able to visit with a World War II veteran. My heart was overwhelmed with thankfulness for the men and women who have served our country and the freedoms we enjoy!
God has given us so many riches in this country! Here are a few that we are particularly thankful for this Independence Day.
Freedom to worship God (Both individually and corporately!)
Freedom to teach our children about God
Freedom in choosing schooling options for our children
Variety of foods
Being able to hop in our car and drive anywhere we want
Internet and apps that we can connect with long distance family and friends
Hospitals and healthcare professionals
Beauty in our surroundings
Law enforcement/government officials/emergency personnel who seek to provide safety
Easy access to stores
Farmers and ranchers
The abundance of sound Christian resources–organizations, books, music, conferences
Outdoor recreation opportunities like parks, hiking trails, and lakes
The variety of seasons–each one is beautiful in its own way!
Government leaders that are set up by God
And Many More!
Today as we enjoy family, friends, food and fireworks let’s thank God for the many freedoms and gifts He has blessed us with in this country! The United States of America!
Happy Independence Day!
