Happy 4th of July

  I am thankful that I live in the United States. I praise God for allowing me to be born here. Our country is not perfect, but last I checked no country is perfect. The United States became independent from England in 1776 with the writing of The Declaration of Independence.

Take a moment to read a few quotes about liberty and freedom.

Freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions, the spirit of men and so it must be daily earned and refreshed - else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots, it will wither and die.  ~Dwight D. Eisenhower

In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved.  ~Franklin D. Roosevelt

We on this continent should never forget that men first crossed the Atlantic not to find soil for their ploughs but to secure liberty for their souls.  ~Robert J. McCracken

True liberty consists in the privilege of enjoying our own rights, not in the destruction of the rights of others. ~ George Pinckard

It is impossible to enslave, mentally or socially, a Bible-reading people. The principles of the Bible are the ground work of human freedom. ~ Horace Greeley

 Those who desire to give up freedom in order to gain security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one. ~ Benjamin Franklin

Have a wonderful 4th.   True liberty comes from knowing Jesus as your Savior.

Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. Galatians 5:1 

Have a blessed day,
