As I was baking these pies this morning for our 4th of July celebration later today
I was listening to some music on Pandora.
First, a little Sousa to get in the holiday spirit.
Then, some Country/Bluegrass Gospel.
(Nothing too howly mind you. Can't stand that!)
My thoughts began to center around "freedom".
I'm so thankful for our country.
I'm thankful for the freedoms that we have, at least for now, in America.
Freedom to worship our God.
Freedom to homeschool.
I'm especially thankful that my true citizenship is NOT here on earth.
In the words of our dear Lord Jesus:
"So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed." John 8:36
Freedom from sin.
Freedom from fear of death.
Freedom from self.
Enjoy your 4th!
