Happy Birthday, America!
It's the 4th of July! And today, millions of Americans will celebrate with parades, barbeques, family and friends--and for some, fireworks. (None, here in the West. We have fire bans due to the dry conditions.)
I am grateful for FREEDOM...
for the ability to WORSHIP without restriction...
for the bounty of BLESSINGS God has bestowed upon our land.
Today, and every day, we are thankful, Lord! May you continue to bless America. May we have strength, peace and abundance--and out of that blessing BE A BLESSING to others--in our land and around the world. In Jesus' name, Amen.
