Freedom! 

“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.”‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭3:17‬ ‭ESV‬‬ “The secret strength of a nation is found in the Faith that abides in the hearts & homes of the country.” ~Billy Graham ~ My prayer is that these two precious gifts continue to grow in their faith and hope in God. That they also continue to grow in their love for our great country. My heart is warmed every time that I see them just naturally stand up without any prompting from us, when they hear our National Anthem being played. I pray that they understand that our freedom is not free, that it was bought with a price. I want them to know that even though men and women paid the ultimate sacrifice and still today pay the ultimate sacrifice to allow us to have the freedoms and liberties that we have, it was Jesus who paid the ultimate of ultimate sacrifices for not only our freedom but our salvation too. Jesus died on the cross to save us of our sins.  “For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Galatians 5:13-14
