Little Miracles

"Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Independence Day

In honor of July 4th tomorrow, I have a semi ridiculous, yet awesome video to share with you.  While I hope you will get a few laughs at this video, I hope that the importance of the message behind it won’t escape you.  As we’re watching fireworks, grilling out, or going to parties tomorrow, please don’t forget what it is that we are celebrating as a country.  I hope we can all put aside our differences and celebrate the fact that we are allowed to have those differences without fear for our livelihoods or lives.  We are celebrating that America is not a colony; America is a country in which religious freedom has been valued from the beginning and though we have seen that tried and pushed at times throughout our history, we can worship freely.  While our government does not always run perfectly or the way we might want, we are not under a tyrant or another country’s rule today.  Tomorrow, and everyday really, we can remember the great risk our founder’s took in signing the Declaration of Independence and in participating in the revolution and we can be thankful that against all odds, America became a country.

Happy 4th of July everyone!

With love,

Meg
