You tried to ruin me, but I was not able to see
The fear you carried and tried to shove on me
I tried to help you but ended up getting hurt
You threw me to the ground while ripping my shirt.
I had enough pain and went away on my own
In hoped you would see life is no fun being alone
But this made you madder, for me to finally breathe
A feeling you hated, deepening you anger to seethe
You tried to ruin me, but I am now able to see
That being without you I can finally be free.

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.
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.
Debbie Smyth of Traveling Intent, challenges us this Sunday with the word of Monument.
Regardless of how you feel about war, you should never take those feeling against the people who have been placed where they have to participate. May we always remember in any conflict Freedom is never free and to show love and respect to those who try to keep freedom at hand.
May we always remember the sacrifices all of our military, police and fireman do to keep us safe. And may we always be gentle when we can, and kind in our hearts when possible.
