Nine Years Ago

It was nine years ago today, that faithless day, when life erupted with come what may.

The car she was in, offered no shelter within, as it hit the black ice and began to spin.

With injuries so grave, her leg they could not save, now at age nine she must be brave.

Her dreams of dance, was lost at first glance, knowing now she never had a chance.

Some dreams are alive, a determination to thrive, beyond expectation they too survive.

For others can see, the grace that can be, regardless of crutch, the beauty of she.

Now dreams of dance, where once was no chance, joyfully fill her with happenstance.

As life can sometime throw you into a tailspin, try not to give up but continue to strive for your dreams. And always try to be kind even when it is hard.

Freedom

Good morning friends. Today in the US we are celebrating our Independence Day. I am dropping in to wish those of you who live here a very happy fourth of July and those who do not live here a special kind of freedom day. The freedoms we celebrate must always be cherished knowing freedom has NEVER been free. It is a costly choice. Each country has many brave men and women that fight to keep us free for the oppression of others who do not share our ideas of our cherished freedoms.

Back over 2,000 years ago, there was another person who made a costly choice because He loved and understood the beauty and power of freedom and all through scripture we are reminded of the power of this freedom and how it must be treasured.
Freedom
When we live in freedom, sharing God’s love, peace and kindness with others, we allow the spirit of God to live freely in us.

So as you enjoy  your country’s freedom, also relish in the the freedom from all sins that can bind us, for Christ has set us free.

As you feel the freedom of Christ, try to always share the peaceful feeling with kindness to others.
