A few years ago, my husband was in Iraq as a contractor. I know what it feels like to have someone you love in harm’s way. I look back on those days now with thankfulness that he is home and a respect for our military that all of us should share. The men and women from the USA that are serving us so selflessly overseas are brave heroes. On this day, as no other, we should remember the blood that has been shed since the birth of this nation … by those who (like Jesus) were willing to sacrifice their own lives and comfort for the sake of freedom and liberty for all. I’ll be thinking of our military, missionaries and contractors who are overseas today.
I pray that the Lord lets freedom ring; all around this lovely world He made. I pray He brings all of our friends and family overseas home safely.
Happy 4th of July.
