Freedom!

I love Independence Day! I love the time with family, the food, and the fireworks. And, I love celebrating the freedoms that we enjoy in American - the freedoms that were bought with a price from brave men and women who have proudly served our country. Freedom comes at a price. We enjoy freedom in America this Independence Day because people past and present have made a sacrifice so we could be free. As we celebrate this weekend, tell the veterans and servicemen and women in your life THANK YOU for giving us FREEDOM!

I also love Independence Day because it reminds me that I don't only have freedom as an American, I also have FREEDOM in Christ - because He paid the price for my sins. He gave His life so I could be free!
