“The fight for the right to live is not the cause of a special few, but the cause of every man, woman, and child who cares not only about his or her own family, but the whole family of man.”
-Dr. Mildred Jefferson
This Thursday we celebrate the Fourth of July, our country’s Independence Day. In the midst of the celebrations, parades, picnics, and fireworks, remember to take a moment to thank God for the blessings we share (and often take for granted) by being citizens of the United States of America. While no one can doubt that we have much work to do to become the nation that God is calling us to be, it would be wrong not to acknowledge the freedoms we all share.
It is important to be humble and to “thank God from whom all blessings flow!” Everything we have and everything we are comes from the Lord. Let us never lose our gratitude for the many blessings of our lives and of our country!
God Bless America!
