Today is the 4th. . .today is Independence Day. But I bet many of you don't know that not only is it our Independence Day, but it is also Independence Day for the people of Rwanda. I love it that we share this day! For some reason that makes me happy!
I am proud to be an American. I am thankful that I'm an American.
For some reason today, I want to mention freedom. . .but not in the Independence Day sense. I think we are so happy to be free as a nation, but we don't allow ourselves to be free from whatever is holding us in bondage. Maybe you are in bondage to electronics or to a bad self-image or whatever. I know that often I find myself in bondage to fear. We really need to have freedom and celebrate our freedom from our issues! Happy Independence Day! (I realize that often our bondage--my bondage to fear--is a daily battle, but for today, at least. . . .)
