Happy Independence Day!

America! America!
God shed His grace on thee,

And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea! source

As we celebrate Independence Day, I’m so grateful to live in a country with so many freedoms. Those of us, myself included, who have never lived outside of the U.S. cannot fully comprehend just how blessed we are to live in this great nation. May we never take for granted the liberties we wake up to each day—liberties our ancestors fought and sometimes died for. May we never forget their great sacrifice.

Ronald Reagan once said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.” The thought of losing the freedoms our remarkable country has enjoyed for so many years is frightening. I want my children to continue to know—and my future grandchildren to know— what it’s like to live in the “land of the free and the home of the brave”.

We are perilously close to losing the way of life that makes America the wonderful country She is. The country in which so many from other parts of the world desire to live.

As we celebrate today, may we give thanks to the Lord who granted us the privilege of living in America. May we continue to fight for America and may we never forget that freedom is only one generation away from extinction.

From our family to yours…have a safe and fun Fourth of July!
