Independence Day 2009
Today is the day we celebrate the independence of our country. It's always been a special day to me. It's another opportunity to spend time with family and friends and to remember the great people who have made America the free and awesome country that it is - all by the grace of God. This year it means even more to me as I think of my brother who is currently serving in the Army, stationed in Korea. It's sobering to think that he might soon be put into harm's way in order to continue the fight for America's freedom. Freedom comes with a cost and can never be assumed.
I know I don't have to remind those of you here live in America to stop and think of the cost of our freedom. I'm sure all of you have at some point today, or will before it's over, given thanks in your hearts to God Who has blessed us with a life here, and also say a prayer for those who continue to serve and fight for us all.
God bless America!
