Happy Independence Day to my fellow Americans!
On this special day, let’s not only celebrate time with our families, cookouts, and summer fun. Let’s also take a moment to be thankful for the country we live in – to remember the sacrifices made to create this great nation of freedom and liberty, as well as the sacrifices made over the centuries to keep those freedoms and liberties. Take some time to read the Declaration of Independence today, out loud, to your children. Explain what it means. Teach them that freedom isn’t free. It comes with a price. May we all be willing to pay that price – as those who went before us were willing to do – so that our children’s children’s children will still celebrate this great blessing of a nation, the United States of America!
God bless America!
Happy Independence Day from my garden to yours!
May you have a wonderful day of celebration with family and friends, eating the bounty of your garden, and enjoying the freedom that so many gave so much to provide. May God bless America, and may He give us the strength to maintain that freedom, enabling us to emulate our Founding Fathers by pledging our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.
Have a blessed and safe Independence Day!
Happy Independence Day, everyone!
If the rain stops long enough, I plan on working in the garden – to catch up on all the gardening chores I haven’t been able to do because of the rain.
I’m also in the process of transferring my website to new web hosting this weekend, one that will give me more room for growth. Because of that, this will be my last post until Monday. Hopefully, all will be transferred and up and running well on Monday. (I am NOT a techie, so this ought to be interesting.)
Have a great holiday weekend, enjoying your freedom to worship, gather, and garden! And never forget the price paid to give this to us.
