Happy Independence Day to all of you U.S. citizens!
On this day in 1776, the leaders of our country declared our independence from Great Britain. I woke up this morning wanting to post about the Fourth of July, which is a very important day for us here in the States. But then I remembered – many of you aren’t from the U.S.
And then I thought, “Oh, my! What will Jackie think? Does she think of us as a bunch of naughty, rebellious children?” So I e-mailed her and asked her what she thought. She encouraged me to go ahead with my post. She even said we could have a tea party in her honor – a Boston one!
Then, I went to my friend Jean’s blog, and she had written this. So, with her permission, I have copied and pasted her conversation with God below:
I am grateful to You for the huge privilege of being born in America.
And one last thing, before I go – I thought you might enjoy this version of America the Beautiful. I did.
