In Dependence Day

I keep thinking of July 4th and the birth of our nation. We call it "Independence Day" because it was then that we declared our independence from England, but at that time in history we were totally de-pendent on someone else, Someone who we keep trying to assert our dependence from these 232 years later. We cover up, remove, or roll out of sight His laws. We fight to have His name removed from the Pledge of Allegiance, our money, and even public prayers. We scoff and ridicule those who would live their lives for Him preferring rather to promote every kind of sinful behavior instead. We thumb our noses in the face of the God who gives us our very breath and then wonder what is happening to the "Land of the Free and the Brave". I vote to change our national holiday to In Dependence Day because we need Him.

  1. What a thought-provoking post. Yes, we are all "In Dependence" upon Him. I'll probably never see "Independence" without thinking of it this way too now.

  4. Ummm... I think Hannah was rather bored today, (her mother had a headache again...) but she was a good sport and took advantage of the time to read a book. Tomorrow we are going to meet Gudl. :)
