Independence Day 2010

Well, I had a post all written for yesterday, but apparently between preparing for the day, I forgot to hit "Publish" and only saved it.  Because I'm smart like that.

But, as everything happens for a reason, I think that the reason for my error was because I needed to come across this quote on a friend's Facebook page:

Welcome to the United States of America.  Please remember only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:  JESUS CHRIST and the AMERICAN SOLDIER.  One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.

And really, what more is there to say about why we celebrate July 4th?


  1. Happy Independence Day, friend. Thanking God for freedom. It has so many meanings, doesn't it? And thanking Him for all who sacrificed theirs so I could have mine.

  2. Wow... what a great quote!
