Happy Independence Day!!!

God Morning, Precious Readers!!!

Happy 4th of July to each of you!!!
This isn't going to be a very long post....like a lot of you, we'll be celebrating with family today. Last 4th of July was the last time that we were able to get together with Pappy's family before his Mom passed away on the 15th.

Precious memories.
Anyway....just a quick thought about "independence". When I hear that word, besides thinking about what today means....I think about how as kids we can't wait to be "independent"....out on our own...living our own lives, not having to answer to anybody!!! Don't you wish you could just get youth to understand...that it's just not all it's cracked up to be???
Our "freedom"....comes with a price!!!

I went to one of the Medic mobile units on Thursday and gave blood and the radio was playing. One of the guys who worked there made the comment about a song playing about "It's Always Something". He and the other lady were talking about how true that is...that there's always something....even when things seem to be going along pretty good...something pops up unexpectedly!! I told them that it's called "life"!!!! The only true "independence" that any of us really have....is the freedom from having to pay for our sins....because it was done for us....all we have to do is accept, believe and confess!!!

So...just as our freedom...getting out on our own...comes with a price....and living in a free country comes with the price of those who fought and even died for "the land of the free and the home of the brave" ....so does the freedom from our sins...but Jesus paid that price for us!!!

Thank You, Jesus!!!

And, thank You that we're blessed to live in the greatest country on earth...

the United States of America!!!



John 8:36 (NIV)
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.



In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!
