Happy Independence Day!

A special thanks to for the festive Independence Day photos as today's posting inspiration.  I didn't want this post to be like any other day.  I wanted to leave something for you to ponder today.  Some historical symbols that mark our Independence as reminders; quotes from a couple of our nation's founding fathers and of course scripture. 
My God! How little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of, and which no other people on earth enjoy!  -Thomas Jefferson


We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. - The Declaration of Independence July 4, 1776

Freedom is not a gift bestowed upon us by other men, but a right that belongs to us by the laws of God and nature.  - Benjamin Franklin

Like the Revolutionary War and others, we too as Christians will receive our freedom from the bondage of sin and will live in eternity with our Lord Jesus Christ.  Amen

". . .so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation (freedom) to those who are waiting for him." Hebrews 9:27-28

I hope you have a very blessed 4th of July.  Be safe and God's speed!
