Independence Day - June 3, 2009

Happy Independence Weekend. This weekend we celebrate our country's birthday. There is so much going on. Tonight some of us are going the Xenia to see their patriotic musical/play called Freedom! Every year they put on a different one. It is well rehearsed, well directed and fun to go to. Tomorrow Allie is in two parades with a picnic for the band in between. Then of course, fireworks in the evening. And don't forget that Sunday is our church's own Red, White and Blue service, this year featuring the Adult Choir singing From Sea to Shining Sea. What a full weekend!

I am sure that all of you are just as busy as we are. But, remember to stop and thank the Lord for this great country of ours. Thank him for the freedom we have as citizens of the United States of America and most importantly as citizens as heaven.

Philippians 3:20-21 states, "But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body."

We just have a few days on this earth then we can be with him. I just hope it won't be as busy as this weekend when we get there!
