Celebrating our National Freedom

Happy Independence Day!

We Americans take our freedom for granted most days, but once a year we pause to celebrate the birth of our nation and celebrate our freedom. Right now I am watching and listening to a live NBC broadcast from NYC. The beautiful debris from exploding fireworks fall in a coordinated dance to the festive sounds of the orchestra. Through our history other fiery flashes ended the lives of countless brave souls as they fought to protect our independence. Tonight we give thanks for the sacrifice of those patriots as well as for the blessings and favor given to our nation by our Creator.
