The Fourth of July

THE FOURTH OF JULY

My kids are kind of concerned about the way things are changing in America and the fact that they are changing fast. I told the kids to just enjoy the fact that we are still a free nation and can speak and play and say what we feel about anything.

I told them to enjoy the moment to moment blessings of every single day and not to worry about things that might be coming our way. Just remember Jesus Word says in Philippians 4:6 to be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

The advice I gave them is the word from a mother’s heart, “Please enjoy waking up every morning and praising God for life and also praising God for just waking up in a nation where the skies are blue and no smoke is in the air from gun fire or bombs”.

Our freedom holiday was first observed in Philadelphia on July 8, 1776. That wonderful day the Declaration of Independence was read aloud, the city bells rang and bands played. The celebrations started on that day and the noise has never ceased.

Our independence and freedom was fought for and won by American people who gave their life that we might be free. We decided way back when that we wanted to be free from Britain and we decided that no one or anything would steal this freedom from us. We wanted to be free to speak about the Lord and serve him in all his beauty.

Brave men and women from all walks of life have fought for our freedom and won, still making us the best nation to live in, in the whole world, or at least I think so.
We now observe the 4th of July with family picnics, parades, pageants, speeches and loud displays of fire works. The celebration in my home town is so wonderful. It usually takes place at our local high school with all the students and the parents and the whole town celebrating together.

Please don’t laugh at me but on the Fourth of July, I often crave home made ice cream and home grown water melon. I love the fact that I live in America and I was born in the good old USA in the heart of the earth in the wonderful state of Kentucky.

I love being an American citizen, how about you?
