Grateful For Independence Day

Standard

We often celebrate 4th of July, while time is seeming to erase the reason we celebrate. Seldom to we say “Happy Independence Day!”  This should not be. Simply being the 4th day of a random month would be a small thing to cause festivities across our nation. I invite you to read the Declaration of Independence here and give thanks for the people who sacrificed so much to allow us the freedom we now celebrate.

Committed to a life of purpose. Learning to live abundantly. Embracing creativity. Questioning. Delighting in the comforts of home and family. Determining not to settle only for how things are, but how they could be. Writing is part of who I am, so I trust In God who gave the gift to show me how I can serve Him through it. That is my life…one word at a time. Psalm 89:11a“Teach me your way , O Lord, and I will walk in your truth”
