Thinking on the hook from the popular Destiny’s Child song from yesteryear I smile. There is truly no feeling like being free. Every year on July 4th I think about the things God has freed me from on my birthday several weeks earlier. I reflect on the mental and physical limitations I have been freed from and smile. It is truly no feeling like being free not just physically but mentally, emotionally and spiritually freedom is a beautiful thing. I appreciate the people who sacrificed for my freedom as an American and those whose lives were impacted by their sacrifice. More than I thank them I appreciate God for dying on the cross so I could be eternally free…that is a freedom for which there is nothing else to compare.

Happy 4th of July, enjoy your freedom, in every state you have received it!
