Happy 4th of July!!

Can you believe it?  This weekend is the 4th of July holiday already.  I guess our cool spring made us not realize how far into summer we are.  And the weather is gorgeous!

For everyone who survived Hoop Fest 2011 this past weekend, we’re headed for a weekend even warmer.

Ice cold drinks, BBQ, and watermelon … is anything more American?  And fireworks … don’t we have some crazy holiday traditions?  My family is into every holiday in a big way, and the independence of the greatest nation on earth is no exception.  This is one day to celebrate all the fantastic benefits we enjoy in the U.S.A.  Proudly wave our national flag.  We have freedoms found in very few places on earth.  Sometimes we get myopic and focus only on the negative or controversial aspects of the politics of our phenomenal republic.

We are able to judge our leaders and all aspects of the American-way of governance.  Thank the Lord that we have such freedoms.  Looking critically at our laws and leaders only makes us stronger.  No one and nothing is perfect so, with constant effort, we can continue to improve the concept of liberty.  Our Constitution is a great framework to point us in the right direction with the freedoms expressed within.  I am always amazed that the document on which our country is based can, throughout our 235 year history, still clearly guide us.

We are truly fortunate to have such a strong anchor or safeguard to our liberty as the Constitution of the United States of America.

Take time during this holiday from the normal work week and show gratitude to our forefathers and our military, which have made us and keep us a free nation.  It is a simple task to be patriotic in this the United States of America.

Thank God for the United States of America!

Thank for reading and blogging!
