Independence Day


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. . . .)
