4th of July 2012

Today I am thinking of Freedom and what it means to me and my family.  We take so much for granted as we get up each day in our air conditioned homes and drive to work in our nice cars.  There was a time and not so long ago there was no electricity in homes and the only mode of travel was by horse and buggy.
We need to remember those times and be a more thankful nation.

I wish to Thank God for the grace he shows us each and every day as we go about our busy days not even giving a second thought to our God that created this great country..

I wish to thank the men and women in the military that do their jobs so that we may have more freedom and be safe as we go about our busy days in America....

I am thankful that I grew up in a large family and that I have 5 sisters and 3 brothers who are there keeping in touch even though they are busy with their own families...

I am thankful that I have a nice home and all the creature comforts a body could want or need..

I am thankful that I am able to worship as I please -when I please and where I please.

I am thankful that I live in a country where your neighbor is supportive when you need that helping hand...

I am thankful for the beauty that is in our great nation,   from sea to shining seas-one coast to another.

I am thankful for friends .......Books......friends and Books.

What are you thankful for???????????????????????
