Happy 4th of July!

As we say in the south ... Happy 4th of July, y'all! With Independence Day falling on a Monday this year, the final of a three day weekend was in full effect. Fireworks, sunshine, cooking out, spending time with friends and family: all the wonderful things that I love about this holiday.

But after all the fireworks have lit up the sky and the sun has set, let's not forget that we are a blessed nation to live in this country, the United States of America. We have the freedom to worship the one true loving God, the freedom of speech, the freedom to be individuals. However, all of these freedoms don't come free. The men and women who serve and protect this country allow us to enjoy today. Please keep them and their families, who hold down the normal life while their loved ones are away, in your thoughts and prayers.


That pretty much sums it all up ... God Bless America, the land that I love.
