America the Beautiful

Oh Beautiful, for spacious skies, for amber waves of grace....
Wow, I love July 4th. I love the fact that we are free to celebrate our Lord and Savior as well as our freedom living in a republic state. I can home school my children; I can worship openly; I can carry my Bible in public. I wish I could go up to EVERY soldier who has fought for my freedom and thank them personally. I think of my papa, who fought in WW II to keep me free. I think of all those soldiers at Normandy Beach who lost their lives for my freedom....but most of all, I am thankful for the freedom I have in Christ. I am thankful for Jesus willing to die on the cross for my sins. I am free for eternity because I am free in Christ. What more could anyone want?
