I have had about a hundred blessing of a Happy 4th of July and about 1 wish for a happy Independence Day. Maybe that is regional and I hope that is the case. I just wanted to review some history for those who do not know anything of why except that it is our country’s birthday and a party day with fireworks and picnics and family and off work.
Long ago, some Puritans came over to America, which was originally explored for reasons more of greed, so failed. All early colonization based on nefarious reasons failed. When the Puritans came over, they drafted our earliest constitution (called the Mayflower Compact) and planned a government based upon Judeo – Christian values and principles. See, they were escaping tyrant and dictators who took their freedom, specifically freedom to worship God their way, and they were leaving to establish a colony in America where they could live free and live the way they felt God wanted them to. And this constitution stuck and became our building block for what we have now. And God blessed the values they landed here for. This is why God blessed America and why colonization worked this time.
Now liberals/socialists love to focus on some mistakes that were made and deligitimize aspects of the birth of our nation. They are idiots. Many mistakes are made along the lines of any enormous endeavor but the United States of America was always blessed by God when Judeo – Christian values were adopted and followed. Sure, greed entered in several times, now even in politics and other places, but when Judeo – Christian values are followed and Christians pray and have that special relationship with God, He blesses again and things get better. When we follow Him, He always blesses.
And July 4, 1776, the founders, who followed Judeo – Christian values firmly, signed the Declaration of Independence from authoritarian and oppressive rule. Our country, based on Judeo – Christian values and freedom to follow them, was born. And that, my friends, is decidedly worth celebrating! 😄 ❤ 🎆🎉
Everyone is on or planning vacations, so it seems. We would be too, to be truthful, if it weren’t for the AC Handler and termite war we’ve been waging- live living in Florida, in a related story lol. So I wanted to wish you a fantastic Independence Day early and will probably mention it again later in more depth, as I am a huge patriot and fan of blessed freedom. Thank God for America!!!❤
What a beautiful day! We have had so much fun all day long with a picnic family reunion (I finally got to cook for it!). Kids had a great time. We got to catch up with everyone. And we are about to top it off now with a great fireworks display. Happy Birthday, America!
So happy to celebrate our country’s Independence Day with you all! We are having family and picnic (I made creamcheese shortcake) and fireworks later. So excited! This was my Daddy’s (the Marine farmer with an angel’s voice) favorite holiday and we always went big and had a great time so we will continue that with our family. Have a fantastic celebration! God bless you and God bless America!😄❤
We live in an area where people love firing their guns and shooting off fireworks for our Independence Day celebration. And they start early and go late. We had some booms last night and tonight, and I love that celebratory spirit for our beloved America’s birthday. Being a Marine farmer’s daughter from the midwest, the 4th of July was always our biggest celebration day. Daddy barbequed, mom baked and cooked, dad made homemade ice cream, we lit our own enormous store of fireworks, everyone came over, the kids caught lightning bugs and lit sparklers, it was awesome. America’s birth and all the sacrifices and solidarity of her courageous and visionary founders, our amazing patriot forefathers are worth celebrating. And our great President is restoring her to God one step and day at a time, despite those horrible treasonous creatures trying their best to put us back in chains. Rats they are but America still stands and is regaining her former glory from God. So worthy is God of praise for our free country and our love for each other and Him and freedom. Sure do love our Indepence Day! As you celebrate this upcoming week, please be sure to lift up much thanks to God for our country and many freedoms. May God bless America!❤🎆🎈🎂🎉🎊🎆🙏🙇💋❤
My daddy was a Marine and a farmer and machinist in SW Michigan and the more patriotic man in the world and I am His daughter. He used to do July 4th bigger than anyone I knew, spending hundreds of dollars on food and fireworks at our house. Family and neighbors came to our house for this holiday. Homemade ice cream, grilled meats, mom’s potato salad, sweet corn on the cob, watermelon and a healthy dosage of fireworks to top it off. This is my first Independence Day celebration without him and it will be spent humbly with some close friends. It will be different, quiet but sometimes the quiet company of dear friends is best and we will have a great day. We are looking forward to it! Happy Independence Day!!!! Love you and God bless America!!!
Our country was founded the right way by the Puritans through God’s leading. They worked with their authorities and governing bodies of England for as long as they were reasonable and cohesive with their beliefs. When that ceased happening, these people all went up against the greatest military force on earth at the time and won. We were the underdogs but had a great Provider who stepped in several times with just the right timing, natural interferences, etc. and led us to victory. Many ups and downs later, we the people can still be proud of our heritage, both our Spiritual and our physical heritage. We owe much to those who have through the years bravely fought for our freedoms that we enjoy and we can be so proud of them! Many freedoms were achieved at enormous cost! And yet here we remain. A battle still rages on for freedom. Now, our freedoms are being challenged from within. That enemy has infiltrated our children and public and personal lives and governing bodies and churches so prevalently that we are very much at risk of losing the freedoms we hold so dear. What can we do to stop this degradation? We as Christ followers can humble ourselves and pray and seek God’s face and turn from our wicked ways. Then God will hear us from heaven and will forgive our sins and heal our land. It is not the job of those serving the enemy to accomplish this grave task but the sole responsibility of us Christ followers. God responds to the pleas of His children when offered from contrite hearts. We can bring back our former glory and protect the freedoms so many gave so much for. We are the only ones who can. And we can’t do it proudly preaching and sinning in the same breath. We can only do it on our knees, praying earnestly with a contrite heart and pure motives. We Christians need to make this our Independence Day and independently take up our crosses and follow Christ. He is the One who makes us free and we are free indeed and we can bring freedom recharged to our beloved America.
