A Grateful 4th of July

Today, as we celebrate America, it seems fitting to spend some time lingering in gratitude for our country.

Regardless of our feelings about our current politics and all the other problems in America, there is so much to be grateful for.

5 Things I am grateful for about America

  1. Freedom to own, share and read the Bible and gather together
  2. Despite problems within the system, America is a Democracy
  3. Men, women and their families STILL choose to serve our country and all of us despite GREAT personal sacrifice – thank you
  4. It is not normal for our children to walk past men with machine guns – we are not an occupied military country
  5. Public School

What are you grateful for?

Happy Fourth of July!
