Happy Fourth of July!!!!!
Freedom is something that we have but do not really understand. I have never had to fear, truly fear for myself or my family.
I was blessed enough to be born in a country that is free. We are free because someone else paid and still pays the price.
I also have a God that has made me free.
How is it something that is so priceless cost me nothing but others so much. For some they paid with their life. We should daily take stock of freedom, what it means and how we got there.
As Americans and as Christians we have been given the opportunity that MANY will never know or have.
It can never be found in houses, land or money but in the ability to pray, choose our religion and how we will worship. We get to choose within our religion what our actions will be . I think it sad that more often than not we choose to do nothing. I want to choose better.
Freedom to me represent light. That is symbolic in both my faith and in the harbor. Jesus is my light and Lady Liberty holds a torch to show the light of freedom. Where there is light you will find truth. Deception is done in the dark. Fear grows in the dark.
As I grow in years I realize more and more just what matters and the funny thing is it was never what I thought it would be.
What matters: FAITH-HOPE-LOVE
