Sunday Scripture: America

Our neighborhood is celebrating the 4th of July today, on the 3rd.  Which I’m sure everyone who works appreciates, since tomorrow {Monday} will be a holiday.  So today is filled with Patriotic festivities, BBQ, and late night fireworks.

I’m not sure about your neighborhood, but our is large enough to have a Facebook page.  Where some of my neighbors feel like it is their duty to air every concern, complain and agenda they have.  Although often entertaining to read {these people are adults?!!}, it’s also frustrating to see so many privileged people complaining about the stupidest things.   In fact, the whole country is like this, choosing the silly little things to get upset about, taking sides without researching, and forgetting just how privileged we all are.

Despite all of our problems and our uncertain future, I am still so, so proud to be an American.  I’m proud to be a Christian in America {where I’m so blessed to be able to practice my religion freely}.  And I hope that even if it’s just for this weekend…our friends, neighbors, and fellow Americans can truly put their gripes and differences aside to celebrate our freedom together.

This Sunday Scripture is in hopes that Americans will come together this weekend to praise God for our blessings and freedoms. #SundayScripture #faith #America #Blessed #4thofJuly
