Celebrating Independence Day


"For Freedom, Christ has set us free."
 The tall, handsome preacher declared Sunday morning.

The line stuck with me through the week.  
As he read the Declaration of Independence Wednesday before our 50 some guests, 
and we sang the Star Spangled Banner,
 it was those 7 words that rang in my ear,
 long after the boom and bang of fireworks had ended
and all were snugly tucked in bed.













"Stand fast, therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free,
and  be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage."
Galatians 5:1

Julianne,

I just had to share how special I think the picture is of the beautiful woman in the purple surrounded by youngsters. A picture is truly worth a thousand words. Thank you for sharing and be blessed. Staci, Stubborn Hill Farm

Julianne,
It was a treat, as always, to read your post. It brought back memories of hearing Brian read the Declaration a few years ago. The tradition of reading the it is something I have done for many years, but I truly enjoy hearing it read. Thanks again to Brian.
