“This is what it looks like when Christmas explodes.” Independence Day

Independence Day – 4th of July 2008 – Corbett

Our dear friends, Jason and Andrea, invited our family to join them to watch the Corbett fireworks display.  We all spent about an hour tossing a light-up frisbee, and I shot a few photos, as well as the video.  We had so. much. fun!  The funniest thing I heard last night from our friend, Jason, was the quote, “This is what it looks like when Christmas explodes.”

So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.”  — John 8:36

“Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.”  —  Galatians 5:1

    You sure do like your independence, which is great! I’ve been wondering whether the USA’s strong drive for independence, is in any way due to the nation’s history – with its pioneers risking all to sail the high seas for an unknown destination.

    I’d really like to know what you think.

    It’s funny; the friends and people I know in America really do like our independence, many because of the history of early America. The Constitution is not a substitute at all for the Gospel found in the Bible, God’s word, but I believe it encompasses the heart of a young nation trying to gain its freedom from tyranny.

    It’s also interesting that, though we who live in America can be fiercely independent, there’s still an innate need to find likemindedness. Dependending on whether the likemindness is rooted in healthy relationships and values, especially God’s Spirit-led convictions, or whether that likemindedness is based on unhealthy, rigid and restriction of allowing others to express themselves in the ways God has gifted them, then that likemindedness can be either good or bad.

    The freedom to read our Bibles, pray and think and reason through the Scriptures without someone dictating against our consciences is truly a gift. I’m thankful for the freedom in Jesus, and all the giftings He gives that pertain to “life and godliness” through His Spirit
