Happy Independence Day to my American followers. Our country is celebrating its 245th birthday. I know everyone is gearing up for their own particular festivities with the possibly of a picnic or potluck, fireworks or at least a bonfire, parades and patriotism. But let’s take a moment to thank God for His gracious blessings on us to be able to live in the freedoms that we enjoy everyday. Our country has had its share of trials and battles but I pray daily that God will bring unity to our great nation, helping every person who lives in its borders to follow Jesus m, coming to receive salvation in Him, and love each other. Love your neighbor as yourself (Matthew 22:39). Let’s show love to our neighbor, our community, our state and yes, our nation. Happy 4th!!
